Approach interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary researches, in addition to these three areas
♦Outline of each Laboratory
Brain Information Communication Research Laboratory Group
- Computational Neuroscience Laboratories
- Cognitive Mechanisms Laboratories
- Neural Information Analysis Laboratories
We aim to understand the function of the brain through computational neuroscience and to develop a Brain Machine Interface (BMI) as a basic technology for IT that realizes ICT technology accessible to all and futuristic communication by applying our obtained knowledge.
We aim to understand the brain function through computational neuroscience and to develop a Brain Machine Interface (BMI) for recovery of motor functions in humans as technology for IT and clinical applications.
We investigate the mechanisms for high-order brain functions by utilizing advanced technologies for the measurement and the analysis of brain activity as well as simulations of brain functions based on robots and computers. Our results enhance human communications and the development of natural human-machine interfaces.
The goal of our research is to develop analysis tools to clarify human brain functions and communication techniques based on brain activities.
Social Media Research Laboratory Group
- Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories
- Hiroshi Ishiguro Laboratory
- Adaptive Communications Research Laboratories
- Wave Engineering Laboratories
Creating innovative concepts and core technologies, and developing innovative systems for different kinds of social communication.
Our research and development is to create robots and intelligent environments for life care robotics. Our research on “knowing people activities” is promoted by both science and technology.
Where does the feeling of human presence come from? Can we convey human presence or build a mechanism for recording it? To explore about these questions, we conduct research by developing various kinds of androids.
Research and development work is being carried out on new wireless communication systems towards a sustainable society. Such systems include cognitive radio networks which achieve more efficient use of precious radio spectrum resources, a wake-up receiver which reduces electric power consumption of ICT devices, and a GPS-based relative positioning method between vehicles.
Wireless devices and services, ranging from smartphones to satellite communications, are essential in realizing a wealthy and secure society. We are engaged in R&D on innovative techniques and applications that achieve efficient and user-friendly wireless services that wholly utilize the limited radiowave resources.
