Intelligent Mechanical Systems Laboratory

Human-centric robotics friendly to people

We research mainly robots, a classic intelligent machine, with the aim of developing technologies useful to society by producing novel concepts and making them reality. We are dedicated to making machines used in daily life highly functional with the use of robot technologies. It is important to nurture the concept of robot systems in society and raise awareness about how such robots can be useful. We proactively collaborate with companies and other universities to meet the needs of society.

For Society

In a graying society with a low birthrate, technologies for human-friendly, safe robots that can accompany and assist people are becoming more important than powerful, fast-moving robots. Demand for new robots based on novel ideas will continue to grow.
