This paper focuses on innovations to extend application fields of robotic manipulators both from hardware and software aspects. An exchangeable end-effector system together with a versatile gripper mechanism increases the utility of a manipulator. An operation-teaching interface enables users to operate remote robots easily and ubiquitously via general 2D terminals. A potential market is expected to become several times larger than the present robot industry.
