Japan 3D Printing Industorial Technology Association
Mr. Tsukasa Matsuoka
Graduated from the Department of Control Engineering, Faculty of Engineering Science, Osaka University in 1984. After joining Ricoh Co., Ltd. in 1990, participated in the development of Solid Modeler DESIGN BASE. Participated in research and development of free-form surfaces such as NURBS. After that, he was in charge of developing various systems such as the high-speed and lightweight 3D viewer Twister. In 2018, he passed the SME Examination and started his career as a diagnostician. In 2019, he participated in the Japan 3D Printing Industrial Technology Association and is engaged in overseas trend surveys and seminar planning.
In recent years, the use of 3D printing technology in robotics has become remarkable. For example, by using parts that have a shape unique to 3D printers, it is possible to achieve movements that could not be achieved with parts created by conventional methods. Another example is that in the process of developing a robot, which previously required a long development period, a rapid prototype using a 3D printer was used to speed up the design, evaluation, and modification cycles to shorten the development period. On the other hand, in the recent situation of corona sickness, there are many situations where contactless is required from the viewpoint of preventing infectious diseases. In many cases, such as catering services, physical delivery of goods and contact with people occur, and solutions by applying robotics are required.
Therefore, we will invite experts to introduce the relationship between robot technology and 3D printing, and examples of its use in non-contact services.
Mobile robot technologies and era with-corona to AM

University of Tsukuba
Faculty of System and Information Engineering
Prof. Takashi TSUBOUCHI
Autonomous mobile robot technology mainly supports wheel-type robots that have the ability to move autonomously in indoor and outdoor environment. While preventing human-to-human contact as much as possible against spread of infectious diseases, it is also used as an alternative to human-to-human interaction and for disinfection work in public places. This leads attracting attention now. The speaker has been involved in the development of mobile robot technology for many years, and has a track record of industrial application of this technology. In this lecture, the speaker will focus on the self-position estimation and map creation, which are the core technologies related to mobile robots. Also he will describe the needs and prospects for technological applications. In addition, the current state of mobile robot technology and examples of research that the speaker has conducted so far with videos will be presented. Expectations for future technology will also be presented.
