This paper proposes using robots as a passive-social medium, in which multiple robots converse with each other, and looks for a way to attract people's interest in the information that robots convey.
Model-based adaptive hybrid control for manipulators under multiple geometric constraints
An adaptive hybrid controller for manipulators constrained on multiple smooth geometric surfaces that produces simultaneous position and force tracking of the constrained manipulators even when their physical parameters are unknown since it is incorporated with the model-based adaptive algorithm.

The Rehand, a realistic electric prosthetic hand created with a 3D printer, provides a realistic appearance that is same as the cosmetic prosthetic hands and a grasping function and a natural operability equivalent to the myoelectric control system.
A hand-pose estimation for vision-based human interfaces
The experimental results indicate the feasibility of the proposed algorithm for a hand-pose estimation that can be used for vision-based human interfaces, although the algorithm requires faster implementation for real-time processing.

An experiment was performed in which the joint angles were estimated from the silhouette images by the hand-pose simulator, and the experimental result indicates the feasibility of the proposed algorithm for vision-based interfaces.
This paper discusses requirements to be satisfied by future manufacturing systems and proposes a new concept of modular manufacturing to integrate intelligent and complex machines. In large-scale…
