This paper describes a system which uses a mobile manipulator as a teleoperated tool for accessing and manipulating remote objects, in our challenge to extend mobile robot potentials and usage in human daily life. The specific task we set up in this research is to help humans browse books located in a library from a remote location via the Internet. This(More)
In this paper, the ubiquitous mobile manipulator system, which could realize the concept of ubiquitous robotics, is proposed. The ubiquitous robot might be able to give several services in human environments, beside classical robots have many problems to realize services, because of the complexity of environments and the amount of information. The(More)
This paper describes a system which uses a mobile robot as a teleoperated tool for accessing and manipulating remote objects. The purpose of this study is to develop a robot system which helps humans to accomplish remotely a given task in their daily life, based on simple communication and mutual cooperation between them and a teleoperated mobile robot. The(More)
The purpose of this research is to develop a robot system which helps humans to remotely accomplish a daily given task such as shopping. This teleoperated system is based on simple mutual human-robot cooperation where the person remotely communicates with the mobile robot. We define the specific task of buying FRESH foods in a supermarket from a remote(More)
This paper proposes a new strategy for making a knot with a general-purpose arm. The strategy is divided into four stages: First, a human-performed knotting action is analyzed to acquire some motion primitives. Second, based on these databases, the robot is taught to tie a knot. Third, key points on the stored trajectories are extracted. These key points(More)

In the present paper, we propose a method for in-air knotting by a dual-arm, multi-finger robot. Most previous studies about knotting by robots assume that the rope is placed on a table. However, in-air knotting requires more skillful hand manipulations, such as swapping ropes between the right and left hands. Therefore, we herein focus on hand motion and(More)
