The Challenge Finding a solution for conducting assembly and repair operations in hazardous and dangerous environments where humans cannot operate. The Solution We designed and developed a special mobile robot, which can sense, navigate and monitor its surroundings and conduct repairs and assembly tasks in inhospitable areas. and National Defense Academy (Japan). His research interests range from modelling, design and control of mechatronic transmissions to robotics and virtual engineering. He has published about 250 international scientific papers and supervised around 20 D.Sc theses. He has held several positions of trust in American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He has led several important domestic and international research projects. Founded in 1969, Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) is a pioneering institution in Finland, that brings together the fields of science and business. The LUT international community is composed of approximately 6,000 students and experts engaged in scientific research and academic education. The Intelligent Machines group at LUT carries out research on mechatronic machine design, especially using virtual technologies and simulators, and demanding industrial robotics. The group has participated in significant international research projects and has collaborated extensively with industrial partners. We have a long tradition of harnessing student assignments to create solutions for new, leading-edge industry areas. These new areas offer many opportunities to discover and trial innovative techniques and systems, while the end-users are not that committed to the existing ones. Example applications include virtual racing and horse riding simulators, providing genuine motion feedback. These mechatronic systems develop innovative techniques, which can easily be applied to more conventional industrial applications."); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: 29px 36px; height: 36px; width: 29px;">
