Throwing and Batting Robot System


General intelligent robots cannot achieve fast and dexterous movement such as human motion. On the other hand industrial robots can repeat preplanned motion quickly, however its variation of motion is limited only to a certain specific task. In addition these robots cannot respond quickly to changing objects due to insufficient motor performance and recognition performance.

In this research we aim at the realization of the robot which can manipulate dynamic changing objects. As a first step, we have developed a Throwing and Batting robot system and achieved the high-speed continuous motion.
