We aim to develop mobile robots that exceed human and biological abilities. We research not only legged robots but also mobile robots such as wheeled, flying and their hybrid type. Specifically, we are working on research subjects such as hardware development, environment recognition, path planning, robot motion generation, and controller design using various sensor information.
Disasters such as earthquakes, storms, floods, etc., are a global occurrence. Recovery work and field surveys are required at disaster sites. However, in some situations, disaster locations are not easily accessible to humans. Our robots are expected to be able to work in hazardous environments on behalf of humans.

Robot Contest by B3 Students (Seminar 1)

In graduation research, students are required to set their own problems, actively consider solutions to those problems, formulate a research plan, and carry out their research. In addition, they must communicate the results of their research to others in an easy-to-understand manner. The purpose of Seminar 1 is to experience the process required for graduation research and to cultivate the basic skills necessary for engineers through the Robot Contest presentation. The following are examples of works by seminar students (third-year undergraduate students).
