We expect to utilize robot systems not only the industrial fields but also the fields such as home, office, and hospital in cooperation with human. Our laboratory focuses on the passive robot system for supporting human being based on the physical interaction. The passive robot does not have active actuators, and its motion is controlled based on brakes and violation motors. The passive robots are intrinsically safe because they cannot move unintentionally with driving force. We also extend the passive robot concept for realizing the high-efficiency and wide-area surveillance system based on formation control of multiple passive vehicles.
