Abstract

This study aims to develop human symbiotic robots, which have the abilities of carrying out physical, informational, and psychological interaction with human, and support daily work in human's living space. In this paper, mechanism design methodologies, specifications, and control strategies of humanoid type human-symbiotic-robot systems, Hadaly-2 and WENDY are described. In order to develop WENDY (Waseda ENgineering Designed sYmbiont), mobility and dexterity of the humanoid robot Hadaly-2, which was developed in 1997, were improved on. The performances of WENDY were evaluated by experiments of safety motion, object manipulation and egg breaking, which require high revel integration of whole body system for human-robot closely interaction.
