题目Title: The Research of Soft Robotics and Human-Care Robotics in Control Engineering Lab, Kyushu University
Time：上午 9：30 ~ 11：00
Recently the research on soft robotics has attracted a lot of attention. The Control Engineer Lab, Kyushu University, has been focusing on the research of soft robotics. It has developed two kinds of soft robots. One is deformable robotic hand, which is tried to apply for food pick and place in food processing and restaurant industry. This work is one part of a big joint research project in Japan. Another is a lightweight wearable robotics suite for assisting elder people walking and rehabilitation.
