Electro-Mechanical Systems Laboratory
Using sounds for the betterment of society
Sounds and vibrations are used not only to transmit information but also in a wide range of areas such as measuring underwater distances to pinpoint the location of moving objects using vibrations and friction. Our laboratory conducts research on devices and systems that can be applied to communication through sounds and vibrations, their measurements and their use for dynamic force. We design and produce circuits, software programs and systems and conduct simulations with them with the aim of contributing to society.
