- "Common Platform Technology
for Next Generation Robots" (pdf)
Dr. Nobuto Matuhira (CSTP Coordination Program of Science and Technology Projects / Toshiba Corporation, Japan)
Various research and development projects for robots have been carried out by a large number of research groups. To improve the efficiency of the development is to provide the basic infrastructure technology for robots. The application-independent common technology for any kind of robots, which can be used by most robot developers is defined as "common platform technology ". We introduce information-structured environments as an environmental platform and a robot world simulator as a software platform within the framework of the common robot platform technology for any robotics applications. They have been promoted by the Coordination Program of Science and Technology Projects in Japan.

and pharmaceuticals high-speed handling robot" (pdf)
Dr. Shinsuke Sakakibara (FANUC Ltd., Japan)
Robotization has not been common in the field of foods and pharmaceuticals handling because there have been two major problems. One is the handling speed was not enough and the other is the cleanness was not secured enough. This time high speed and continuous operation were achieved by "dual drive torque tandem control" that used two servo motors for three basic axes of the robot respectively, cleanness was secured in addition by adopting resin gears and a double seal structure. Thus these problems were solved.
