Robotics System Design Laboratory
Designing smart spaces with robotics and information technology
What is a robot? Various kinds of robots are currently being researched and developed. Their common functions include the observation of surrounding situations, judgment-making based on the observations, and actions to impact the surrounding environment to attain the established objectives. From this viewpoint, we are conducting research on making a space itself intelligent by fusing robotics and information technology, irrespective of robot shapes — humanoid or animal types.

For SocietyIf we have spaces that watch over people, we will be able to realize the concept of safe towns, which can bring peace of mind to people. If transportation systems become intelligent spaces, they can make car navigations more effective and alleviate traffic jams.
- Observation of spaces by using the sensors placed in the spaces
- Research on human interface in intelligent spaces
- Research on the integration of robot systems using robot technology middleware
