To investigate intranasal (i.n.) immunization efficacy of Schistosoma japonicum 97-kDa myofibrillar protein paramyosin (PM), a vaccine candidate for Asian schistosomiasis, BALB/c mice were i.n. immunized with Escherichia coli-expressed recombinant PM (rPM). I.n. immunization using rPM mixed with cholera toxin (CT) was more potent than subcutaneous (s.c.)(More)
In this paper, we describe the concept, design and implementation of a series of autonomous mobile soccer robots, named "Musashi" robot, which have a mechatronics modular architecture, to participate in the RoboCup middle-size league. In this design methodology, we show that the selection of a proper moving mechanism, a suitable vision system and a(More)
One of important subjects for mobile robots is the vision based decision making system, where the color constancy is big problem for robots which use color property to recognize environments. We have been working on color constancy vision algorithms using bio-inspired information processing as creatures can recognize color and shape of objects even if there(More)
In this paper, we describe the concept, design and implementation of a series of autonomous mobile soccer robots, named ldquoMusashirdquo robot, which have safety design which is based on ISO and a mechatronics modular architecture, to participate in the RoboCup middle-size league. In modularity design methodology, we show that the selection of a proper(More)
Underwater robots and underwater machines are counted on helping the salvage procedure, escaping prevention of pollution, lifesaving at sea, scientific exploration in the ocean and so on. In the underwater robot, therefore, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) have been developed actively during recent year. However, AUVs have various problems which should(More)
Tomato is one of important fruit vegetables and most tomatoes are produced in the greenhouses, or large-scale farms, where the high temperature and humidity, and long harvest age force the farmers heavy works. With an aim to promote the automation of tomato harvesting, we have organized the tomato harvesting robot competition. In this paper, we report on(More)
