Joint research with Kyoto University
Optimum Design is what Yushin calls its use of CAE (Computer—Aided Engineering) to determine the theoretically best configuration of a robot based on its mechanisms and movements. This approach has been used in recent years to make aircraft and automobiles lighter and more reliable. Through joint research conducted with Kyoto University, Yushin first tested and applied CAE to an EOAT. Following the good results, this Optimum Design approach was employed with take-out robots of the HSA, TSXA, YC and HST series.
