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)
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)
In the soccer games, the player’s behavior changes depending on the game situation such as winning or losing, score gap, remaining time. The players act more offensive when their team is losing, or more defensive when their team is winning with minimum score difference. Currently most of robot teams keep the same strategy during the game so that the result(More)
The sphere kinematics has been discussed in the research field of multi-fingers grasping, mobile robot motion control driven by a sphere, ball handling, etc. In the multi-fingers grasping problem, a sphere and a plane correspond to a spherical finger and a cuboid object are used and the contact points of the sphere are analyzed. The mobile robot driven by a(More)
