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.

OHTSUBO Yoshikazu

Position
Associate Professor
Laboratory
Mechatronics Laboratory
Mechatronics, Robotics, Rescue Engineering

We have developed rescue robots to search for victims in underground shopping centers in the event of a disaster. We integrate a number of conventional robots having various features in order to develop a group robot system that can be remotely manipulated.
