  • Patent number: 10773399
    Abstract: A control device controls the arm such that a first contacting operation of setting an object to a first orientation and bringing the object into contact with an inserted object is performed, and an inserting operation of setting the object to a second orientation different from the first orientation and inserting the object by moving the object in a first direction is performed. Between the first contacting operation and the inserting operation, the control device performs a second contacting operation of bringing the object and the inserted object into contact in a portion different from a contact portion in the first contacting operation by performing force control such that a component of a target force in a second direction orthogonal to the first direction is set to a value greater than 0 based on an output from the force sensor at an orientation at which the object is tilted.

  • Publication number: 20190339161
    Abstract: A failure diagnosis device for a reduction gear is a failure diagnosis device for a reduction gear provided to a mechanical apparatus driven by a motor so that the reduction gear slows down rotation power of the motor and transmits the power to an operating part of the mechanical apparatus. The device identifies an acceleration/deceleration period during which operation of the mechanical apparatus accelerates and/or decelerates, and determines whether the reduction gear indicates a sign of failure based on a change in frequency spectrum of motor current with respect to a change in a rotation speed of the motor during the acceleration/deceleration period.

  • Publication number: 20190137999
    Abstract: An autonomous running vehicle transmits a camera image around the vehicle photographed by a camera to a remote monitoring center. An obstacle is detected on the basis of information obtained from autonomous sensors including the camera. When an obstacle is detected, the autonomous running vehicle is automatically stopped. The remote monitoring center determines, when the autonomous running vehicle automatically stops, whether or not the run of the autonomous running vehicle is permitted to restart on the basis of the received camera video. When it is determined that the autonomous running vehicle can be restarted, a departure signal is transmitted to the autonomous running vehicle. When the departure signal is received from the remote monitoring center, the autonomous running vehicle restarts running.
