With the aim of augmenting people's functioning, and improving QOL and service efficiency in an aged society, we will research and develop robotic technologies (assistive robotics, assistive technologies) that assist people in their daily lives, and aim to commercialize next-generation robotic devices that contribute to society. In addition to the development of sensors, measurement technologies, and technologies for physiological intervention, we are also developing technologies to assist for analyzing user's daily life to design devices, and to evaluate the safety and benefit of devices. We collaborate with companies in verification experiments and industrialization of technologies.
