Applications of Motion Control Originated from Robot Technology
Tohoku University, Aoba-yama 01, Sendai 980-8579, Japan
A new research model proposed by the Science Council of Japan in 1999 [1, 2] is based on how research is conducted and culturally integrated into society. Motion control systems developed for robots as part of the robot technology (RT) has potential applications both in actual robot systems and other systems, as demonstrated in several examples showing how motion control schemes developed for robots can be used.
