Welcome !

For advance microrobots that perform power-needed tasks in narrow spaces, we have been developing advanced MEMS/micro systems. A fluid power drive has a potential to realize an advanced powerful component for the microrobots. In addition, functional or smart fluids such as ERF (electro-rheological fluid), MRF (magneto-rheological fluid), magnetic fluid, ECF (electro-conjugate fluid), etc. are advanced materials that can realize simple and miniaturizable control components. We have been developing microactuators, microvalves, micropumps, and microrobots by using advanced and MEMS technologies.
