From IT infrastructure to application technology: make, connect, use

The rapid growth of devices (smartphone, tablets, robots, wearables, etc.) and the Internet has increased the amount of information that is being produced and accessed by society. In order to better utilize the data produced from millions of devices and systems, we are conducting research and development in a wide range of fields at the interface between information technologies and human factors. Our mission is to engage and enrich the public through the research and development of intelligent systems combining computational and physical capabilities for human use. A key component of our mission is making new discoveries in the hardware and software that interacts with physical devices to sense and change the state of the real world. Our discoveries will lead to industry innovations and contribute to the advancement of society by facilitating the interaction of humans with cyber-physical systems.

Towards realization of intelligent systems that robustly work in various environments

The mission of Intelligent Systems Research Institute is to promote fundamental long-term research whose outcomes for the society have been examined be thorough investigations. The institute studies intelligent systems technologies that are defined by smart information processing and robotics to assist human behaviors, and seeks their basic principles, elemental technologies and system architectures to contribute the realization of the sustainable society and the creation of novel industries.
Recently, we focus on R&D of technologies of sensing and recognition of 3D environments, motion and grasp planning, and locomotion in unstructured environments. R&D of applications of intelligent systems collaborating with companies are highly encouraged, including, but not limited to, in manufacturing, service, maintenance of infrastructure and executing complex tasks in dangerous, degraded, human-engineered environments.
