  • Rolling resistance and sinkage analysis by comparing FEM andexperimental data for a grape transporting vehicle

    Journal of Terramechanics    97   59 - 70   2021.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In this study a 2D FEM model was developed to analyze ruts formation, rolling resistance, and power loss for a grape transporting cart aimed to replace the use of heavy tractors while harvesting grape. The model was supported by experiments in a vineyard in South Italy. Cone penetration tests were conducted to estimate frictional and cohesive properties in three soil conditions: firm, soft, and wet saturated. A tractor pulled test rig for a single wheel was developed to measure rolling resistance and sinkage, and complete the selection of the soil parameters. Completed the model, the analysis was conducted for a range of different wheel dimensions, and the outputs analyzed through response surfaces. The results showed the different impacts that width and diameter have on ruts formation and rolling resistance for different soil conditions. Wider wheels determined a main reduction of the sinkage, while the width contribution to the rolling resistance was affected by the total soil volume deformed. Larger diameters led to lower rolling resistance, with a higher impact on more deformable soils. Contact stress was compared with the thresholds recommended in the literature to determine the acceptable designs. This analysis represents a tool to select the running gear dimensions.

     View Summary

    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.

     View Summary

    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.

    2021.01  -  2021.01

     View Summary

    In agriculture, the aging and depopulation of farmers cause the shortages of farmers and manpower. Most of commercialized robots are industrial robots for factory automation, and most of robots for the first industry, agriculture, forestry and fisheries are still under developing. The reasons are cost-efficiency of the robotization, safety of the works using robots, difficulty of outdoor operations, and knowledge transfer problem from farmers to computer, etc. As one of solutions for the problems, robot technology into the agriculture is expected to contribute to the laborsaving, improvement of production, production line automation, and also the management toward smart-agriculture. We organize the Tomato-harvesting-robot competition to offer the research field and welcome researchers into agricultural robotics.

  • Safety of Marine Transport, Marine Navigation and Safety of Sea Transportation

    K. Watanabe, K. Ishii, K, Takashima ( Contributor ,  Experimental Study for the Development of Ship Hull Cleaning Robot )

    CRC Press  2015.06 ISBN: 978-1-138-02859-3

     View Summary

    Recent trend towards increased cost of fuel will continue further, so the reduction of fuel consumption will be required more severely as well as the severe requirement of reduction of C02 emissions. To achieve these requirements, the reduction of resistance is essential for efficient ship navigation. As there has been made many technological challenges to improve fuel efficiency, we believe the prevention of marine biofouling is one of the promising options. Anti-fouling paint is effective to prevent biofouling to the ship hulls like barnacles, however, even the painted hull acquires slime-like biofouling caused by marine alga on its surface easily. The cleaning of the ship hull is generally carried out during inspection in dockyard once a year. Frequent cleaning while the ship is berthing is desirable to keep good fuel efficiency. If frequent ship hull cleaning is possible while ships dock at berth with ease, ships can keep good fuel efficiency that makes the transportation costs and C02 production less. Cleaning by divers costs much and is a high risk task. One possible solution for this issue is to introduce underwater robots for ship hull cleaning.
