3. Previous Research
*Planar SCARA Robo
A planar SCARA robot for the purpose of precise CP control has been developed, with a synthetic design of mechanism, controller, etc. For details, please refer to the following paper.
A. Ming, T. Ito and H. Makino: Development of high-accuracy and high speed SCARA robot for CP control, Journal of JSPE, Vol.59 No.11, pp.1865-1870(1993.11) (in Japanese)

*Spherical SCARA Robot
As an extension of planar SCARA robot to 3-D space, spherical SCARA robot has been developed. As an application of the robot, a 3-D robotic machining system for industrial art objects has been developed also.
This robot and robotic machining system are commercially available.

*Wire Parallel Mechanism
A general description on the design and control of wire parallel mechanism is given and two kinds of wire parallel mechanisms have been developed.
For details, please refer to following papers.
