报告题目：Research and Development of Articulated Body Mobile Robots
内容简介：Research and development of mobile robots for maintaining a sustainable society in high demand in many areas, including robotic systems for environmental monitoring and resource investigation work, robots for disaster prevention, rescue, infrastructure maintenance, agriculture, medical and welfare supporting robots and other service robots, among others.
In this talk, the focus will be mechanical design and control of long articulated body mobile robots, but I will also address some common theory related to snake-robots control.
