<About awarded research>
Robot system has recently been studied in real-world situation such as space exploration, underwater inspection and disaster response. In extreme environment, robot system has the probability of fault, therefore considering of fault tolerance is important for success of missions.
In the awarded presentation, we proposed distributed cooperative fault diagnosis method for internal components of robot system. This method consists of some diagnosis devices called diagnoser, and diagnoser observes state of a electrical component. Some diagnoser executes the diagnosis in independent and parallel, and we assume that they are connected using wireless communication. We confirmed that the diagnosers can detect the fault of component in three types of fault situations by conducting computer simulations.
It is our pleasure to have this honorable award. We would like to continue this research for the development of robot technology.
