Image Processingand Robotics Laboratory
Innovative technologies to realize people’s happiness with image processing and robots
Our laboratory is conducting research to make the lives of disaster victims, those in need of nursing care and those requiring help comfortable and enriched using robots and imaging-processing technologies. Specifically, we study ways to rapidly search for victims in a disaster-hit area with the use of flying robots, to automatically identify abnormal behaviors of people living at nursing care facilities with the use of image recognition processing and to ensure the comfortable and automated driving of wheelchairs. Our students are enjoying pursuing their research while also using freewheeling thinking.

For SocietyOur laboratory mainly aims at technological innovation related to the support of disaster victims, the handicapped and elderly through the use of robots and image-processing technologies. We put our efforts into research, believing that all of our studies will benefit society.
- Conducting a study on the automatic search of victims in a disaster-hit area by an unmanned aerial vehicle mounted with image and vocal analysis systems
- Conducting a study on allowing wheelchairs to run autonomously and comfortably inside facilities with the use of visible light communication
- Conduct a study on a system to support the operation of nursing care facilities with the use of Kinect
