Robots for tasks humans are unable to
and 24 hour human care
University of Tokyo
4:00pm, Adamson Wing, Baker Hall
This talk will address robot implementations for two tasks that
humans are unable to perform well. First, a micromanipulator
robot is presented that is able to handle objects that are normally
viewed under a Scanning Electron Microscope. Second, a robot which
takes care of humans 24 hours a day will be presented. Our "Robotic
Room" is not a room filled with robots, rather, the room itself is the
Tomomasa Sato graduated from mechanical engineering at the
University of Tokyo, then
obtained his Ph.D. from the Univesrsity of Tokyo in 1976.
His thesis was on underwater imaging utilizing acoustical holography.
Tomomasa then entered Electrotechnical Laboratory, performing research
in telerobotics and hand-eye systems.
He later moved to the Recearch Center for Advanced Science and Technology
(RCAST) of the University of Tokyo in 1991 and was invloved in
research on micromanipulation and human robot symbiosis systems.
He currently occupies the posision of Professor of RCAST and
Mechano Informatics of the Mechanical Engineering simultanieously.
