Key Features

"Humanware" is the core concept of this laboratory. It essentially extends the abilities of humans and supports better human life by the combination of sensor data and knowledge processing. It aims to achieve human-like intelligent information processing, five-sense communication, and soft-flexible robotics/mechatronics. The basis of information and communication technologies are artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, biosensing, etc. Our laboratory explores new research areas concerning smart houses and care support technology combined with human, social, and physical sciences.
