  • VRIC – Modelling simple human-robot collaborative manufacturing tasks in interactive virtual environments
    Proceedings of the 2016 Virtual Reality International Conference on – VRIC '16, 2016
    Co-Authors: Elias Matsas, George-christopher Vosniakos, Dimitrios Batras

    Abstract:

    This paper presents in brief a novel interactive Virtual Environment (VE) that simulates in real-time collaborative manufacturing tasks between a human and an industrial robotic manipulator, working in close proximity, while sharing their workspaces. The use case scenario is highly collaborative and incorporates a wide variety of interaction tasks, such as: collaborative handling, manipulation, removal, placement and laying of carbon fabric composite parts. A Kinect sensor and a Head Mounted Display (Oculus Rift) are employed as 3D User Interfaces for interaction, immersion and skeletal tracking of the user motion. In this paper, particular emphasis is given to the various interaction techniques used to facilitate implementation of virtual Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC). The collaborative tasks are principally executed with contactless, natural and direct interaction. In addition, two novel interaction metaphors were developed. The real fabric laying task and the Backing Film removal task are reproduced in the VE with the implementation of the “follow-my-hand” technique; the user has to follow with his hand a virtual hand-like index (guide) that moves along a predefined pattern. Preliminary findings concerning the effectiveness of HRC modelling tasks are positive, and are briefly discussed.

  • QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF BIO-MEDICAL SAMPLES OF VERY SMALL QUANTITIES BY THE STANDARD-FREE METHOD
    International Journal of PIXE, 2011
    Co-Authors: K. Sera, S. Futatsugawa, S. Hatakeyama, Y. Saitoh, K. Matsuda

    Abstract:

    A standard-free method developed by ourselves has been applied to bio-medical samples of less than 1 mg or less than 1 μl, to which an ordinary internal standard method can not be accurately applied. As the result, correct values of potassium concentration in NIST-Bovine liver samples of nearly 0.5 mg were obtained. Furthermore, the standard-free method has been applied to small quantity of serum and whole-blood samples, and satisfactory results were obtained. For samples which easily peel off from a Backing Film, such as serum and whole blood, a carbon tape with an adhesive agent was also used as a Backing Film, and it is found that this method is also applicable. Moreover, the standard-free method was confirmed to be effective for a case where a specially designed x-ray absorber is used.

  • PIXE QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS AT NMCC
    International Journal of PIXE, 2011
    Co-Authors: S. Futatsugawa, S. Hatakeyama, Y. Saitoh, K. Sera

    Abstract:

    The facilities of the NMCC have been opened to other scientists and researchers of universities and institutes in Japan for their academic contribution since 1993. A lot of study subjects of PIXE are accepted every year. We tried to confirm that elemental concentrations in a sample were determined exactly at the quantitative analysis using PIXE facilities at NMCC. The known quantity of a standard liquid sample was dropped and dried on a polycarbonate membrane filter that was used ordinarily as a Backing Film for an aerosol sample collection. The determined values of elements in targets agree with the values evaluated from the added quantities of the standard liquid samples.

  • ANALYSIS OF LIQUID WASTE USING PIXE
    International Journal of PIXE, 2011
    Co-Authors: S. Futatsugawa, S. Hatakeyama, Y. Saitoh, M. Matsushita, H. Inoue, K. Sera

    Abstract:

    Non-radioactive liquid waste generated in the Kaya Memorial Takizawa Laboratory was analyzed using the PIXE system established at the Nishina Memorial Cyclotron Center. Samples of the liquid waste were collected at several stages of the non-radioactive liquid waste purifying process. A simple sample preparation method for liquid sample was adopted. Liquid sample was dropped and dried directly on the Backing Film after adding the internal standard element, which produced appropriate targets to be analyzed by PIXE. Sodium, silicon, sulfur, chlorine, potassium, calcium, iron and so on in the liquid sample were detected. The PIXE method used in this study showed outstanding properties for analyzing the liquid sample.
