It is well known that fluid-powered systems are used practically in almost all industrial fields, including construction, manufacturing, transportation, and others. Nowadays, the rapid growth in the development of mechanical elements in fluid power systems, such as control valves, actuators, and sensors, as well as control strategies has given rise to pioneering in some novel application fields, in ways that were thought to be impossible a decade ago. High-precision positioning control using the compressible fluid of pneumatic driving systems and multi-legged robots equipped with standalone hydraulic components are simple examples. Moreover, soft robotics based on fluid-powered technologies have attracted attention not only in academia but also in human support fields that will become more important as Japan’s society ages. This special issue focuses on the state of the art in development of mechanical elements, total drive systems, motion control theory, as well as of concrete applications that use fluid-powered systems.
