Catchphrase for Exhibiting Item
Pioneering the future with a Soft-actuator and Artificial muscle!!
Selling point of Exhibiting Item
Peristaltic mixer for solid-propellant !!
Can inspect a pipe with earthworm motion!
Assisting human with artificial muscle!
Our laboratory is making innovative robots based on soft-robotics and bio-robotics for research and development. Using a pneumatic artificial muscle whose output is 4 times higher than previous one as a core technology, we are conducting various applied research. We exhibit and demonstrate the following: a wearable assist suit which is friendly to human, a peristaltic pump that can convey high-viscosity fluids and powder which are previously difficult to convey, etc.
Actuators: Straight-fiber-type artificial muscle, Peristaltic pump (JAXA). Assist suit: Waist assist: AB-Wear, Lower limb assist: Airsist (NEDO), Upper arm assist: TasKi. Robots: Earthworm robot for sewer pipe inspection, Earthworm robot for rare earth extraction under the ocean floor (JAMSTEC)
