Towards a robot nearer to human

Our study are mainly targetting vast subjects of robotics including (but not limited to): flexible body, lithe and natural motions, sensing technologies (hardware and software) to sense various phenomena, intelligent software that can sense, decide and act autonomously, and so on. Those who join us will learn mechanical design, mechatronics, control, software, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, etc., and will create new robots.

Making Robots that We -Humans- Like

The research conducted at GV Lab is rooted in human body dynamics and tries to design robot behavior to achieve personalized human robot interaction. We study artificial emotions, behavior, machine learning and robot control. The research work in this lab is highly interdisciplinary and we collaborate with psychologists, physiologists, philosophers, neuro-scientists, designers, ergonomists, bio-mechanists…

Towards Mechanical Systems with Robot Technologies (RT) Working in Real World

Electric motors controlled by computer systems enables robots and mechatronic systems move faster and more powerful than human. Such systems with the control technologies support human activities in working, moving, etc. However, it might harm humans if the system made wrong decisions or the system became un-stable. Wheeled mobile robots, motion control of electric vehicles, and human-machine interface of mechatronics systems are researched and developed in WADA lab. which covered wide area of engineering technology includes machine design, electric circuit design, programming, and control theories,

Making robots intelligent through international collaboration

We are conducting international collaboration to pursue the means of increasing robot's functional autonomy, using a humanoid robot as a main platform. The main research subjects include: task and motion planning and control, reproduction of human motion and device evaluation using a humanoid robot, and human-robot cooperation through multimodal interface integrating difference sensing inputs. The laboratory is located in CNRS-AIST JRL (Joint Robotics Laboratory), UMI3218/CRT, in Tsukuba, which is a joint laboratory established between AIST and a French public organization CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) or Artificial Intelligence Research Center (AIRC) in Odaiba.
