  • Leg-circle transformable wheel for improved runnability of a lunar rover

    Ayako Torisaka, Kohei Eguchi, Satoshi Miura, Victor Parque, Tomoyuki Miyashita

    Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures     1045389X2095254 - 1045389X2095254  2020.09

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a wheel with a deployable leg that can change the apparent wheel radius to improve the runnability of a rover traversing a lunar surface covered with regolith. The driving force of the wheel was formulated according to terramechanics, and relations for the changing driving force with the different configurations were clarified. The simulated driving forces with the original wheel configuration and extended leg configuration were compared in a single-wheel experiment, and the results confirmed that the proposed extendable leg system exhibited a higher driving force than the original circular wheel. With this system, the rover can use the original wheel state for flat ground surfaces that do not require a high driving force and then switch to the proposed extendable leg system when a high driving force is required, such as escaping from local concave ground or climbing on steep slope. The proposed system is potentially applicable to efficiently traversing irregular surfaces not only on the Moon but also on other planets.

  • Enhanced frequency analysis on a vibrated tumor with a compression cylinder

    © 2019, The Author(s). Breast cancer diagnosis has been mostly accomplished through imaging. These methods have great advantages in being able to detect the presence and location of breast cancer. However, it is difficult to distinguish between a benign and malignant tumor located in a deep position because both tumor types look similar. In this paper, tissue including the tumor from skin was vibrated using a compression cylinder, to analyze the frequency difference for distinguishing tissue type. Before distinguishing between a benign and malignant tumor, it is necessary to validate that the difference between normal tissue and tumor can be distinguished. The objective of the study is to validate the feasibility to emphasize the frequency differences in a 10.0 mm or greater deep tumors during vibration by pushing a cylinder towards the deep tumor. A phantom model and finite element analysis model were constructed to simulate the breast. In the experiment, air was injected into the phantom and the displacement was measured. The frequency response for distinction of tissue types was analyzed and it was found that the displacement difference rate was over 50% at a frequency of 130 Hz when the cylinder was pushed into the sample as opposed to when not pushed in. Changes in displacement were measured according to the distance between the tumor and vibration point using finite element analysis. When the measurement and vibration points were on the center of the tumor, the difference in the resonance point was at its largest (5.5 Hz). Results show that the position of a tumor could be easily and rapidly detected by vibrations from a cylinder pushed into the diagnostic site.

  • Comparison of Schemes for Numerical Representation of Graph Structures

    Parque Victor, Miyashita Tomoyuki

    Proceedings of JSPE Semestrial Meeting   2019 ( 0 ) 71 - 72  2019

     View Summary

    <p>The numerical representation of graphs is useful to visualize, sample, and evaluate the design space of graph-based architectures. Although, the concept of representing graphs by numbers has attracted the attention in recent years, the through computational comparison has been elusive. To fill this gap, in this paper we describe our insights when comparing the computational complexity when converting numbers into graphs and vice versa. We show that the optimization-based approach is efficient and advantageous to scale to large graphs.</p>

     View Summary

    <p>Minimal trees on polygonal maps bring potential applications to enable the efficient coordination of systems ubiquitously. In this paper, we propose the concept of Euclidean Steiner Trees avoiding obstacles with modularity concepts to bias the formation of clustered minimal trees in polygonal maps with arbitrary obstacles. Our computational experiments show the feasibility and efficiency of our proposed approach in polygonal maps with arbitrary geometry.</p>

  • A Study on the Intuitive Operation of the Catheter Extension System

    HAMASHIMA Motoi, MIURA Satoshi, Parque Victor, MIYASHITA Tomoyuki

    The Proceedings of JSME annual Conference on Robotics and Mechatronics (Robomec)   2018 ( 0 ) 1P1 - E03  2018

     View Summary

    <p>Catheter ablation is a method to treat arrhythmias which is an abnormal contractile movement of the myocardial. While this treatment is minimally invasive, it may lead to complications such as vascular injury, cardiac puncture and cardiac tamponade. The cause of this problem is considered as the difficulty for the surgeon to intuitively operate the catheter tip. To improve accuracy of catheter ablation treatment, we developed a master-slave system that considers the structure of a human wrist for surgeons to operate a catheter remotely. A master and a slave robot made it possible to operate the catheter in 2 DoF which is the inserting and the twisting operation. Two experiments were carried out, which is to determine the insertion displacement of the slave robot and to obtain the correspondent relationship between the master and the slave robot.</p>
