Space Robot System Laboratory

Seeking robots that can be useful in environments where people cannot go

Robotics and dynamics are the keywords we use in our research on space robots, aeronautical robots and surgical simulators. For space robots, we plan to propose a system that takes the characteristics of space environments into account. For aeronautical robots, we are developing machines that can fly in unprecedented ways and can maneuver through narrow spaces. We are also conducting new research into a surgical simulator that uses an encounter-type haptic display.
