IOI Kiyoshi

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Robotics Laboratory
Robotics, Mechatronics, Motion and Vibration Control

We conduct research on new robots and intelligent machines. We study a variety of bots, including robots that run in place, robots that travel on wall surfaces, and flying robots. We are also doing research on practical small Braille devices and on ultra-low-vibration wheels.

KOSAKA Manabu

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Control Engineering Laboratory
Control Engineering, Data driven control, System Identification

Control engineering enables air conditioners to work automatically to keep room temperature constant. We study to establish controllers that bring out ultimated performances of the control objects.

Mizutani Kimihiro

Position
Lecturer
Large scale information processing platform Large scale information processing method Virtual Network Infrastructure/Server Management

AMANO Ryo

Position
Assistant Professor
Laboratory
Digital Control Laboratory
Control Theory and its Apprication

Making something such as a robot behave as you want can be described as “control.” We are engaged in theoretical research on control. We are also conducting applied research to control actual ones using computers.

TANIMOTO Hirokazu

Position
Assistant Professor
Laboratory
Electronic Control Engineering Laboratory
Control Engineering

This lab conducts research related to methods to accurately control a diverse range of power systems that use induction motors such as in elevators and high-speed Shinkansen bullet trains. We also study microprocessors embedded in industrial products such as air conditioners.
