Motion Control Laboratory

Producing motion-controlled technologies that can save the world!

Developing theories and putting them into practice is important for science and technology. Missing either of these elements will prevent us from developing top technologies. At Motion Control Laboratory, we learn computer-aided controlling systems and conduct control experiments on many robots. Our goal is to develop robots with motion capability to assist people as industrial, medical, and welfare machines. The research experience that students gain in this laboratory will help them become world-class engineers.

Study Fields

For Society

The basic technologies our laboratory studies are motion control. With the control technologies, we can develop safe high-speed mobility machines such as robots searching for victims in disaster-hit regions and rescue robots. This can spark innovation in various areas, including industries, medical care, and households.
