Intelligent Machines

The Intelligent Machines Area integrates mechatronics with control and information theories and investigates advanced intelligent systems able to adapt to complex and dynamic environments.
Subareas
Bio Medical Wet Robotics
Morishima Lab.
We have demonstrated an environmentally robust biotic-abiotic robotic system that uses living components, called "Cellular Build Up Wet Nano Robotics". To utilize robust biological components as a functional systems and self assembly process and their emergent functionality, and to build up such a soft and wet machines will lead us an innovative fundamental change and produce a new principle and design to future man-made systems.
Dynamical Systems Control
Osuka & Sugimoto Lab.
We are trying to understand the essence of control principle of dynamics-based-control for wide variety of dynamical systems. Then, we construct a new design principle of control system for artificial or natural controlled object (From robotics as science to robotics as practical business).
Hyper Human Engineering
Kaneko, Higashimori & Takayama Lab.
The limitation of dynamic eye sight of human often blocks out from seeing a high speed motion. By combining both a high speed vision and a high speed actuator, we are developing a new dynamic sensing system, by which we can observe a dynamic behavior of human body. This dynamic information can be utilized for medical diagnosis.
Spacecraft Dynamics and Control
Yamada Lab.
Based on the orbit and attitude dynamics of spacecraft, we are making research on dynamical behavior and stability analysis of spacecraft. We are also developing a new technology for future spacecraft missions, such as efficient orbit transfer and maintenance and high-speed attitude maneuver.
