Abstract

We have been studying an air jet manipulation technology to non-contactly carry an object over a long distance using multiple 3D air jet manipulation modules consisting of a single air jet nozzle and a pan-tilt actuator. Here we challenge long distant transportation through object pitching-and-catching between a pair of air jet. In this report, we propose a control algorithm to determine each air jet angle and its flow rate, for both pitching side and catching side. First we try to observe human behaviour in a real catch-ball as a hint to create the algorithm. Next, as a preliminary experiment, a pitching experiment and a catching experiment are independently performed to obtain an air jet output function and a control law for each. After that, we propose an integrated transporting algorithm of pitching and catching, and confirm its validity by demonstration experiment.
