Mechano-Informatics Laboratory

From baby bottles to a remote-controlled robot with virtual, augmented and mixed reality functions!

Our laboratory developed an original device that can measure the nipple softness of breastfeeding mothers, and used this data to obtain a patent for a new baby bottle nipple. We are continuing to work on creating a bottle nipple that feels more like a real one. In addition, we are making a remote-controlled robot with virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) functions. The robot is capable of visualizing objects that human eyes cannot in times of poor visibility and displaying then on a screen using sensor fusion. It can also work in extremely severe conditions that are off limits to humans.
