Demonstration on lunar construction works using small robotic platforms.
An “open design” mobile robot and disaster response robot experiment was implemented at Kyushu University’s experimental field.
Experimental tests on robotic mobility and construction works
An “open design” mobile robot experiment was running at Kyushu University’s experimental field.
We conducted a demonstration of the sensing equipment in a simulated environment of river channel blockage(Futase Dam).
We conducted compaction experiments using a vibratory roller in the experimental pit at SAKAI HEAVY INDUSTRIES, LTD.
We developed a method for evaluating stiffness of compacted ground using distributed sensor pod.
We implemented a retrofitted wheel loader with arm/bucket control and autonomous driving control.
We developed a method for estimating the position of construction vehicles using 3D point clouds obtained from sensor pods.
Open Platform for Earthwork with Robotics and Autonomy（OPERA） has been released by Public Works Research Institute.
