    Emergent Robotics Laboratory

    Professor ASADA Minoru   Assistant Professor ISHIHARA Hisashi
    Cognitive Developmental Robotics (hereafter, CDR) aims at providing a new way of understanding ourselves and a new design theory of humanoids through mutual feedback between the design of human-like robots and human-related science. CDR consists of the design of self-developing structures inside the robot’s brain, and the environmental design: how to set up the environment so that the robots embedded with therein can gradually adapt themselves to more complex tasks in more dynamic situations.

    Microdynamics Laboratory

    Professor NAKATANI Akihiro
    Establishment of computational theory and methodology of multiscale dynamics for microscopic open systems, which incorporates surrounding environmental effects to isolated systems.

    Functional Materials Laboratory

    Professor MINAMINO Yoritosi
    The purpose of Functional Materials Area is to develop new materials with high functional performance by methods of control of microstructures from nano to micro size and desgin of alloys composition. Now, the target of our laboratory is to produce of high performance materials such as high damping materikas, metals with fine grains, high strength-high hardness-high toughness steels and so on.

    Intelligent Actuators and Sensors Laboratory

    Professor HIRATA Katsuhiro   Associate Professor MIYASAKA Fumikazu   Assistant Professor NIGUCHI Noboru
    We are conducting research on next generation actuators and sensor devices such as multi-degree-of-freedom actuators, linear resonant actuators, magnetic gears, nano ion devices that use new operating principles and new materials. Our research is a comprehensive process from the beginning until the end; starting with the proposal of an idea, to the development of an analysis method, to the optimization of a design, all the way to the verification of a prototype through experiments.

    Motor Intelligence Laboratory

    Associate Professor SUGIHARA Tomomichi
    Bidirectional study of human motion and humanoid robots to understand the human intelligence with a background of mechano-informatics.

    Computational Materials Designing and Creation Laboratory

    Associate Professor YOSHIYA Masato
    The third approach as computation is known enables us to meet with the needs from our society which is more demanding than ever and to provide the seeds which provide further opportunities in our society. In this group, by fully using wide spectrum of computational methods of materials science that ranges from atomistic simulations to macroscopic continuum matter modeling, we are exploring emerging advanced materials and searching for better materials design for them, not confined by existing theories but go beyond them, in conjuction with extensive collaboration with groups doing experiments.

    Symbiotic Media Laboratory

    Associate Professor NAKANISHI Hideyuki
    To create human-media symbiosis, we are working on the development and analysis of user interfaces that eliminate the gap between media and humans.

    Creation of Highly-functional Structural Materials Laboratory

    Associate Professor HAGIHARA Koji
    We have tried to create and develop a new class of structural metallic materials which support our social life.
    We have develop the materials based on the strategy that “Clarifying the correlation between the crystal structure, phase–stability and the mechanical properties.”
    We have investigated the next-generation “multi-functional structural materials” which posses many superior properties simultaneously, such as light-weight, high heat resistance, high strength, high corrosion resistance, good biocompatibility , etc.

    Nonlinear Discrete Dynamics Laboratory

    Associate Professor DOI Yusuke
    We are interested in nonlinear dynamics in discrete/periodic structures such as micro scale dynamics in materials. Nonlinear vibration and nonlinear energy localization are investigated theoretically and numerically based on theory of dynamical system. Our purpose is to propose a new theoretical approach based on nonlinear dynamics in order to solve various problems in mechanical engineering and material engineering.

    Thermal Electromagnetic Fluid Analysis Laboratory

    Associate Professor MIYASAKA Fumikazu
    Design of new devices and development of manufacturing processes through the analysis of behavior of fluid that interacting with external environments such as themal and electromagnetic fields.
