    Improving the efficiency of fish feeding contributes to achieving sustainable expansion of the aquaculture industry. However, expert knowledge on feeding remains reliant on experience. This paper presents a new approach of applying digital transformation (DX) on such knowledge by measuring underwater currents induced by fishes as indicator of their hunger. A prototype sensor suite consisting of current sensors, cameras, and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) was constructed to measure the currents around the fish cage, measure the motion of the suite, and record fish activity, particularly during feeding. An initial experiment was performed in two fish cages during feeding activity. Current measurements were collected and analyzed together with the recorded videos to relate the changes in current to the feeding activities. Results suggest that the currents increase around when feeding was started continuously and decline to zero around when it was stopped. However, more data needs to be collected and analyzed for a better understanding of the relationship between the changes in current and fish activities so it can be used to optimize the feeding decisions of fish farmers.

    Agriculture is one of the most important primary industries, however the agricultural workforce in Japan has been decreasing due to the aging, shortage of successors and their heavy work. Smart agriculture and farms, which aim to automate farm work, have been attracting attention for the future sustainable society. We have been organizing the Tomato-Harvesting-Robot Competitions since 2014 to introduce robotic technology and AI into agriculture and promote agricultural technology. The competition consists of a Junior League for young students and a Senior League for general competitors. In this paper, we report the results of the 6th Tomato-Harvesting-Robot Competition and the regulation changes toward practical applications.

    In food industry, shortage of workers is a serious problem. Automation of food handling is a critical nowadays. To alleviate the damage during food picking by robotic hand, we propose non-contact acoustic impedance estimation with ultrasonic wave. We have the assumption of the correlation between hardness and acoustic impedance, and, built up ultrasonic transmission model considering attenuation by reflection and absorption, then, made an experiment to estimate the impedance. As the result, we succeeded in detecting acoustic impedance without contact.

    In the future estimation of 2050, the food demand increases 70% and the production decreases 15% caused by global warming, and farmer population be 1/5 of current workers. Until 2050, we need an agricultural system of twice production with the same farmland area and 5 times effective operations. To realize the sustainable society, smart agriculture including robot technology, AI, IoT is one of the solutions for food issues. We have been working for a greenhouse project under enPiT-everi for implementation of robotic, AI and IoT technologies to agriculture. In this paper, we introduce the project and robotic applications.

    <p>Marine resource survey by an underwater vehicle is expected. To realize cheap self-positioning for the underwater vehicle, we have been developing on the acoustic positioning system which is low cost and easy to maintain. The acoustic positioning system has four hydrophones which consists of molding commercially available MEMS micro phones with pressure-resistant resin, an audio device, and a micro controller. To evaluate the system, positioning experiments was performed in the small tank. In the experiments, the system detected delay time among four hydrophones, however its positioning was not good accuracy. In the future, we will improve the accuracy of positioning by interpolating data and considering the effect of baseline.</p>

    <p>Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) observe a wide area by using mounted camera and LED lights and is used for bio-resource survey. However, AUVs is difficult to capture the sample useful for scientists. Previous AUVs can capture only specific benthos that its developer decided the target before resource survey, but scientists for fisheries resource can't chose sampling target during observation by AUVs. To realize an efficient bio-resources survey, the authors developed AUV that can capture the target instructed by the operator during observation. Because the slurp gun installed on the AUV has no canister, the AUV catches only one sample in one dive. This paper explains developed AUV and slurp gun with the canisters, and reports on sea trials using them.</p>

    Acquiring flexible and agile behaviors as seen in biological systems, the robot can achieve acrobatic movements such as jumping and throwing. These acrobatic movements are expected to extend the range of robot activity. In this research, we propose a special mechanism using a pair of motors, springs and cams, which has three functions: normal operation, instantaneous operation and variable rigidity. Then, we derived a mathematical model of the mechanism and discussed the input-output characteristics of the mechanism by changing the design parameters, and analyzed the difference between the theoretical and measured results.

    Inspection of underwater infrastructure of bridge pier is important for bridge maintenance, however, the underwater environment is dangerous and their observation is one of difficult problems. We have been developing the underwater inspection system which consists of an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) and a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The concepts of the system are (1) Operation is executable with a small number of persons, (2) USV and ROV are controllable from land or bridge, (3) Build 3D model and images for crack detection. The ROV observes the status of whole infrastructure using cameras and control its posture using a depth sensor and IMU sensor. The USV vertically lifts up and down ROV by winch and carries ROV to the infrastructure. USV has GPS, LRF and IMU for horizontal positioning and pan-tilt control of the camera. In this paper, we discuss the results of the inspection operation test by the robot.

    <p>In this paper, we propose a new formula to accurately estimate the output value on the real machine of the proposed mechanism as a part of the development concerning the high power joint mechanism. The previously proposed formula did not consider the energy loss when the slider translated. Considering the mass of the slider, we derived an expression that can estimate the angular velocity of the output link from the energy conservation law and the geometrical relationship. As a result of comparing the theoretical value and measured value, the performance of real machine could be more accurately estimated by using the proposed mathematical formula.</p>

    Underwater imaging is an important part to seafloor observation by underwater robot. Underwater robots provide many images, which contain seafloor environment, and theses images contribute to various fields such as marine biology, marine geology and fishery science. However, underwater images has different properties, such as uneven illumination and light attenuation, compared to images which taken in air, and these properties impede image checking by researchers. In this paper we propose an image enhancement based on scale-gain Retinex, and the proposed method is experimented on the Suruga-bay in Japan.

    Underwater robot is one of the important research tools to explore deep-sea. Especially, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) attract attentions as new tools because they are un-tethered and suitable for wide area observation. As the next generation AUV, we have been developing a Sampling-AUV that can dive into deep-sea and bring back marine creatures using a mounted manipulator. In the mission, the AUV transmits the deep-sea floor images to the support ship using acoustic communication, and the operator selects the marine creatures to sample and bring back them. In this talk, we introduce the new AUV, the underwater manipulator and image processing techniques for sampling.

For an achievement of the above mission, proposed image sensing system comprises software modules of image acquisition, image enhancement, object detection and image selection, and object tracking. The camera in proposed system acquires an image by intervals of five seconds during OP and RP and of a second during TP. The system completes all processing within image acquisition times by employing high-speed algorithms. We checked operations of proposed system in a pool.</p>

    <p>Many mechanisms with Impulse Force Generator is generally operated at high speed and strong force. We have been working on high power joint mechanism imitating locust hind-leg in order to realize a mechanism capable of not only rapid motion but also normal motion. However, they have some problems as following. In rapid motion, The developed mechanism has energy loss due to the viscous resistance of the reduction gear of the actuator. And the direction of rotation during rapid motion is restricted. In this paper, we propose a high power joint mechanism with higher performance which solves this problem. The mechanism proposed by us can perform rapid motion and normal motion at clockwise and counterclockwise. And the mechanism can change of the articular compliance. The mechanism consist two motors with cams, two wires, one spring and some links. Our verification experiment of rapid motion showed that the proposed mechanism can realize rapid motion without viscous drag.</p>

    <p>The autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are developed to contribute various science filed such as oceans biology, geology by deep-sea observation. The deep-sea observation by AUV provides various information such as lifestyle of deep-sea creature, volcano of deep-sea bottom, etc. by photographing image. Next mission using AUVs is required to sample targets such as creature, mud or stone in deep-sea floor. For success of this mission, AUV needs supports by researcher in support ship. However, underwater communication based on acoustic has less density compared to electronic. In this research, we proposed a method of image compression and reconstruction for acoustic communication. And we evaluated reconstruction image by Structural similarity.</p>

    <p>Underwater robots are employed to marine organisms' research in ultimate environments. In this study, we aim to do automation of marine organisms sampling by autonomous underwater vehicle with a manipulator. We developed a manipulator to pick up deep-sea benthic organisms. The developed manipulator is driven by a master-slave cylinder type hydraulic driven system. Moreover, the manipulator's joints are actuated by hydraulic cylinder, and linear motion of the cylinder is converted to rotational motion by a motion conversion cam-mechanism. This control system was integrated by MATLAB/Simulink. So we adopted Stateflow (this is a toolbox for Simulink) in the high level control layer.</p>

    <p>In order to effectively investigate the distribution and amount of CRC (Cobalt-Rich manganese Crust) an AUV BOSS-A equipped with visual and acoustic instruments were developed. The AUV observes CRC on the seafloor along preset waypoints at a constant speed and altitude. Detailed 3D seafloor image is created based on navigation data from the AUV and images from visual instrument. In addition, an acoustic instrument measures the CRC thickness. We surveyed the CRC at Katayama seamount in February 2015. The results visually presented distribution of the CRC in this site. In the future, we will develop a reliable, accurate measurement method for CRC thickness by combining visual and acoustic instruments.</p>

    Today, we tend to waste considerable amount of things and energy and produce a large amount of garbage in our daily lives. We are now forced to use a lot of expenditures and time to dispose of a lot of waste materials. Under such circumstances, reusable bottles, one of familiar waste materials, are recycled more frequently than before. In addition, the washing process of collected bottles has been automated. However, caps of collected reusable bottles are sometimes replaced although there are some regional differences about the treatment of caps. One possible problem is that such caps have to be detached by hand. Therefore, with the commercialization of product in mind, this research made an attempt to develop a machine that automatically unscrews caps. As a result of this research, a decapping machine was successfully developed. Caps of reusable bottles are automatically unscrewed with a minimum failing rate.
