“The is extensive research on autonomous robots and androids that look and behave like humans”, says Yoshihiro Nakata, an associate professor at the School of Informatics and Engineering, UEC Tokyo. “Ultimately, in order for robots to become an integral and functional part of modern society, they must be able to move freely within everyday social settings alongside humans, without danger or concern. The key to realizing such a society is for robots to be able to “gently interact” with humans without the unnatural rigid movements associated with conventional robots. To achieve a society of “gentle robots” it is necessary to develop new generations of actuator technology. This is the goal of my research. Namely, to develop actuators for powering “gentle and socially acceptable robots.”
