We have been developing dexterous two finger micro hands and a total micro manipulation system. Our aim is to handle and to manipulate micro object whose size ranges from one to hundreds micrometers.
In the field of medical science and biology, analysis of cells is significant and one of the analyses is stiffness measurement of various cells.
We have developed two micro manipulation systems. The first one has multi-scale manipulation ability which means, this micro hand can manipulate the objects which are in the scale of sub-micrometer to a few hundred micrometers.
We have designed and built an automated single cell loading and supply system that can be used with complex microfluidic applications requiring single cell loading such as the current nuclear transplantation method.
We have developed a new Limb Mechanism Robot named "ASTERISK". ASTERISK has 6 limbs which each has 4DOF. By radially arranging limbs in six directions from the center of the body, ASTERISK achieves both even work space and mobility in every direction.
New dynamic rolling-walk motion for multi-legged robot with Sensory Compensation is proposed. The motion is realized by using the isotropic leg arrangement and the dynamic center of mass control inspired by bipedal robots.
