Title of Speech: Rolling Friction Modeling and Compensation in Fast and Precision Positioning for Industrial Positioning Devices
Abstract: Fast-response and high-precision motion control is one of indispensable techniques in a wide variety of high performance mechatronic systems including micro and/or nano scale motion, such as data storage devices, machine tools, manufacturing tools for electronics components, and industrial robots, from the standpoints of high productivity, high quality of products, and total cost reduction. In those applications, the required specifications in the motion performance, e.g. response/settling time, trajectory/settling accuracy, etc., should be sufficiently achieved. In addition, the robustness against disturbances and/or uncertainties, the mechanical vibration suppression, and the adaptation capability against variations in mechanisms should be essential properties to be provided in the performance.
The keynote speech presents the fast and precision motion control techniques, where a 2-degrees-of-freedom (2DOF) control framework is especially handled as one of practical and/or promising approaches to improve the motion performance. Actual issues and relevant solutions for each component in the 2DOF control structure are clarified and, then one of examples, a 2DOF controller design for fast and vibration suppression positioning, is presented as an application to industrial high precision positioning devices. In this speech, especially, a practical approach of mathematical modelling and compensation for friction in the precision positioning is discussing for typical industrial manufacturing machine, where a nonlinear stiff characteristic with hysteresis property of friction in the micro-displacement region can be mathematically modeled using a rolling friction model and, then compensated by applying the model to an initial value compensation of disturbance observer to ensure the required control specifications in the positioning.

Title of Speech: Robots: Perceiving, Acting, Collaborating
Abstract: Humans are skilled in a wide range of physical and decision-making behaviors, and also demonstrate impressive learning abilities to acquire new ones. Most artificial system today still experience challenges, especially in unstructured environments. The gap between humans and artificial systems in decision making and motor skill learning may be explained not only by the highly versatile sensing and actuating capabilities of humans, but also by the way the sensorimotor process is intertwined. In this talk, we survey our and work of others in terms of systems perspective: integrating perception, interaction and collaboration in an effective manner for the development of more capable and safe artificial systems.
