Project Description

In this research, we will explore the manipulation of deformable linear objects such as cables, cords, and tubes. Based on linear object modeling, we will establish control strategy to perform the manipulation of linear objects.

Deformable linear objects such as cables, cords, and tubes are widely used in various products. These objects deform easily, making their manipulation difficult. The aim of this research is to realize linear object manipulation performed by robotic systems. Based on the research on linear object modeling, we will explore manipulation strategy that utilizes object deformation.
