TOKAI UNIVERSITY Researchers Guide 2020

Our group have been focusing to develop the blood collection device as a part of wearable health care monitoring systems research. Idea was inspired from the blood suction mechanism of female mosquitoes, which can collect blood from human body almost painlessly. Above all, the "world's smallest metal injection needle" created by ultra-fine tube creation technology has been developed with the aim of reducing the burden of daily blood tests for diabetic patients, including the number of reserves. Since it is a wearable device, the device should be mounted in the limited size within the whilst watch type device, so sensors and actuators based on functional materials, have been used.ResearchAreasEngineeringKeywords■Bio engineering■Sensor & actuator■Smart material thin lm■Energy harvesting■Bio medical measuring deviceRelatedresearchSDGEnvironmental and biological sensing by micro region sensor using thin lm technologyProfessorKazuyoshi TsuchiyaUndergraduate School of EngineeringDepartment of Precision EngineeringThe research on plastic forming, wire drawing of shape memory alloy, titanium and titanium alloy, magnesium alloy was being carried out. Production research of orthodontic wires, guide wire in medical, easy-release screw for recycling, super fine bonding wire was done. A typical research title is shown below.1 )Surface aws on drawn wire and wire breaks2 )Drawing of superconductive wires3 )Drawing of super ne wire for bonding wire   4 )Drawing of shape-memory alloy wires and tubes5 )FE-Analysis of surface crack in rolling and forging 6 )Development of Easy-Release Screw for resource-recycling7 )Development of medical stent by using drawn magnesium wire and tubeResearchAreasEngineeringKeywords■Plastic working■Drawing■Forging■Metal forming■Shape-memory alloyRelatedresearchSDGDevelopment of medical stent by using drawn magnesium wire and tubeProfessorKazunari YoshidaUndergraduate School of EngineeringDepartment of Precision EngineeringFull autonomy of a robot is dicult to achieve and maybe we don't want such highly autonomous robots. Our laboratory aims to build semi-autonomous robots which are able to make contributions for a better Quality of Life of humankind. A robot should be human-friendly and safe in nature, and its motion and interactions with humans should be natural and intuitive. At our laboratory, we mainly deal with mobile robot, humanoid robot and UAV. Our main research interest is concerned with adding values to the robots from the viewpoints of intelligence and communication skills. Such semi-autonomous robots should be able to help and ease human's every-day life.
