Development and Implementation of Sensor-Rich Soft End-Effector System (SSES) for Cyber Physical System (CPS) Construction

This project is aiming at improving the automation of industries with low labor productivity, such as food industries, small and medium enterprises, agriculture, forestry and fisheries industries, by utilizing cyber physical system (CPS). A common problem in such industries is the handling of various objects with irregular geometrical and material properties. The bottleneck for achieving successful handling is the end-effector. Therefore, in this project, we will develop sensor-rich soft end-effector systems (SSES) and construct an IoT platform to collect the interaction information happening in physical space and transfer it to cyber space.

During 2018, we investigated the specific needs in above-mentioned industries and clarified our goals. An experimental field is under-construction in Ritsumeikan University to evaluate the performance of the SSES. To develop desired SSES for the industries’ needs, project members are dedicating their efforts in material selection, sensor selection, sensor development, sensor integration, actuator development, end-effector development, systematization, prototype production, onsite experiments, etc. In the future, we plan to finish performance tests and commercialize SSES by 2020, and expand the commercialization to the entire country by 2022.

This project was proposed jointly by Ritsumeikan University, Yamagata University, CHITOSE ROBOTICS, Inc. and Man-Machine Synergy Effectors, Inc., and directed by Prof. Kawamura from Ritsumeikan University. In addition, there are researchers from eight universities around Japan working together towards the final goals.

This annual report summarizes main research activities during 2018 from all project members as follows:
1. Construction of an experimental field (Ritsumeikan Univ.)
2. Development of soft/flexible robotic hands (Ritsumeikan Univ., Kanazawa Univ.)
3. Development of soft/flexible sensors (Ritsumeikan Univ., Kansai Univ.)
4. Establishment of mechanism and control principles (Meiji Univ., Kyushu Univ.)
5. Systematization study of SSES (Ritsumeikan Univ., Kyushu Univ., Osaka Inst. of Tech.)
6. Datalization of physical space interactions (Ritsumeikan Univ., Nara Inst. of Sci. and Tech., Osaka Univ.)
7. Commercialization of SSES (Tachibana Eletech Co., Ltd., Ritsumeikan Univ./ Ganko Food Service Co, Ltd.)
8. Development of gel 3D printing (Yamagata Univ.)
9. Development of printed electronics (Yamagata Univ.)
10. Development and commercialization of SSES for dish washing industry (CHITOSE ROBOTICS, Inc.)
11. Development and commercialization of soft/flexible joint drive technology (Man-Machine Synergy Effectors, Inc.)
