In order to establish high-speed robot senses that are much faster than human senses, we are conducting research and development of information systems and devices that can achieve real-time image processing at 1000 frames/s or greater. As well as integrated algorithms to accelerate sensor information processing, we are also studying new sensing methodologies based on vibration and flow dynamics; they are too fast for humans to sense.

Intermittent Frame-by-frame Tracking Camera System

This study proposes a camera system that can realize high-brightness video recording of fast-moving objects without motion blurs. The proposed camera system consists of a real-time high-speed vision system and a high-speed 2-DOF piezo-driven mirror. The performance of the developed motionblur free camera system is verified through video recording experiments on fast-moving objects without decreasing the exposure time of the vision system.
