This page is the top page of my final project showing an overview of the project.
My final project is a mobile robot for research activities in the railway industry. Due to the aging society in Japan, decreasing the number of workers is expecting in the Japanese railway industry. If this issue is kept letting lie, stable and safe operations in the railway industry cannot be kept. Then, as one of the solutions, the industry is planning to introduce robotics devices into operational fields for both customers and our workers.
The below figure shows the future railway industry we are aiming to. As a researcher in the R&D center of JRE, I am working to introduce robots into the railway industry. However, unfortunately, there is no robot to experiment in the R&D center. Then, I decided to create a prototype of robots to accelerate my research. As the above figure shows, mobile robots are one of the important technologies, so I would like to create a prototype of a mobile robot.

- An arm robot would be mounted tp grasp something
- Add some sensors to make this robot run automatically
