This paper presents the effectiveness of a time-delay compensation method based on the concept of network disturbance and communication disturbance observer for bilateral teleoperation systems under time-varying delay. The most efficient feature of the compensation method is that it works without time-delay models (model-based time-delay compensation(More)
In a research area of bilateral teleoperation systems, time delay generated in communication line is one of very serious problems. Time delay in control systems induces severe phase delay. Then the phase delay possibly destabilizes the system and deteriorates performance of the system. Therefore many studies about time delay in bilateral teleoperation(More)
Several flowers of Tulipa gesneriana exhibit a blue color in the bottom segments of the inner perianth. We have previously reported the inner-bottom tissue-specific iron accumulation and expression of the vacuolar iron transporter, TgVit1, in tulip cv. Murasakizuisho. To clarify whether the TgVit1-dependent iron accumulation and blue-color development in(More)
This paper focuses on realization of high performance motion control based on acceleration control. A high sampling frequency is known to be effective for improving the performance. Characteristics of acceleration control are investigated and the relationship between the performance and the sampling frequency of the system is discussed. Based on these(More)
Robots are expected to expand their range of activities to human environment. Robots in human environment need redundancy for environmental adaptation. Furthermore, they have to automatically modify their controllers in response to varying conditions of the environment. Therefore, the authors have proposed a method to design a hyper-DOF control system(More)
Haptic sense is indispensable for skillful operation in a telerobotic system. Bilateral control attracts considerable interest because it transfers the haptic sense to a remote place. Although it is simply composed of two manipulators, its design is complicated. This study proposes an idea that provides a new framework on design of a bilateral control(More)
This paper describes a collision avoidance method of the biped robot with the upper body. We propose the method that the robot stops in front of an obstacle by generating arm force. When the robot detects the obstacle by the arm tip, it should stop short of the obstacle in order to avoid crush. Hence, in this paper , we propose the method of trajectory(More)
Android robots that have a human-like appearance have been developed recently. The purpose of android robots is to realize realistic communication between human and robot by implementation of human-like behaviors. Then knowledge and techniques for generating human-like natural motions and behaviors with android robot are required. In face-to-face(More)
This paper discusses velocity measurement for motor drives with optical encoders. Although many methods on velocity measurement have been proposed, accurate measurement was not achieved in a high-speed range. This paper therefore proposes “synchronous-measurement method (S method)” that measures the velocity synchronized with alteration of pulse numbers in(More)
This paper proposes a tactile-sensing mechanism for a robot. The mechanism is composed of a force-sensor device and an end-effector of shell shape. Since the end-effector plays the role of an outer shell, a force can be sensed at any position on the body. Due to the aspect of its intrinsic contact sensing, position of the single contact point is calculable(More)
