Preface

  • With the increasing application of human–robot interaction, collision detection between robot and unknown environments, along with further distinction from the intentional contact between human ... Read More

  • Machine-vision-based reading and sorting devices have been used to measure and classify items. Here, we extend their application to the sorting and assembling of items identified by their geometr ... Read More

  • Food consumption is increasing as the world population increases. While the eating of fish is spreading worldwide, the depletion of fishery resources has become a problem owing to overfishing, an ... Read More

  • In this paper, how to obtain motor speed signals for multirotor flight states to avoid a crash in the case of complete motor failures based on the Euler angle state variable approach is explained ... Read More

  • In this study, we have developed a device with the aim of understanding the relationship between the force exerted by a surgeon on the handles/grips of laparoscopic forceps and the force transmit ... Read More

  • Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is commonly used and is essential for diagnosing thyroid diseases. Despite its widespread use, it presents a significant barrier for doctors who lack experi ... Read More

  • In this paper, we propose the concept of underwater docking of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for power supply and data transfer to conduct the continuous operation of the AUV without lau ... Read More

  • An autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) is a small autonomous boat that is expected to be used for automated investigations in radiation-contaminated areas or for unattended fishing, which will help ... Read More

  • We present the concept of an experimental method for the determination of the inertia matrix with an added mass effect. This experimental method can be applied to any size and type of object. In ... Read More
