Overview of research

Research on Active Coordination Technology for Human Symbiotic Robot

  • Development of Human symbiotic robots that can work with humans or support them in daily life, public and medical and welfare services.
  • Study on Safety and work-efficiency that are required for Human symbiotic robots sharing a place at the same time with humans.
  • Two major subjects: Modeling the interaction between humans and robots both from a psychological and physiological viewpoint, Developing novel control theory and intelligence based on these models.

Flexible object-handling and drawing learning by humanoid robot with deep learning

  • Our research interest is on a machine intelligence which interacts with the dynamic environment. We are challenging this theme by taking constructivist approaches with robot systems and neural network model (deep learning). The approach includes imitation learning, linguistic-behavioral integration, human-machine cooperation, and multi-modal active sensing.

Research on Human-Robot Communication

  • Study on the role of body expressions on conversational protocols.
  • Study on the use of robots for group communication activation.
  • Study on conversation-based entertainments.

Adaptive Assisting Device for Practicing Golf Swing Using Control Moment Gyroscopes

  • We develop a wearable device to adaptively control golf swing.
  • Control Moment Gyroscopes assist a user to achieve a desired orbit of patter swing by providing force feedback.
