Preface

  • We have developed a tailless, two-winged flapping drone with a full span length of 180 mm and a total weight of 20.5 g. The developed flapping drone is characterized by three biomimetic technique ... Read More

  • The increasing presence of coastal debris is problematic in many parts of the world. Coastal cleanups are very time-consuming and expensive. Part of this cost involves the monitoring of debris wa ... Read More

  • Currently, autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) are being actively studied. In particular, there are high expectations for their use in aquaculture and research in coastal areas and by the fishing ... Read More

  • Transferring between a ship and an offshore platform is potentially dangerous owing to excessive motion caused by rough conditions. In this paper, we focus on a small vessel with consideration of ... Read More

  • In this paper, we propose a method of position control for an underwater vehicle using a monocular camera. The proposed method does not require an expensive inertial measurement unit (IMU) and us ... Read More

  • To meet a surgeon’s need to compare the physical properties of conventional surgical spring forceps (tweezers), a hydraulic-driven system (HDS) based on syringes and syringe pumps is used for d ... Read More

  • The edge of the contour of a stamping part is burred because of the shearing phenomenon when punching or blanking. To detect burrs, manual visual inspection is often used, which is time-consuming ... Read More

  • We propose a method for detecting slug flow generated in horizontal pipes as a basic study for detecting slug flow generated in production facilities in oil and gas mining areas offshore. General ... Read More

  • We are currently developing a mobile scaffolding device that can dodge the piers of bridges without dismantling the scaffold when moving between spans to improve efficiency and safety in bridge i ... Read More

  • Endoscopic submucosa dissection (ESD) procedures, used to remove cancerous tissue from thin-walled organs such as the duodenum, often result in compromising the organ’s functionality, resulting ... Read More

  • A deformable mirror (DM) can be used as a dynamically variable wavefront corrector in optical paths for robotic vision and surveillance cameras because its surface shape can be changed and contro ... Read More
