Kobayashi and Hayakawa Laboratory

Learning and Sensor Information Processing for Intelligent Robots

In this laboratory, we are conducting research on recognition, motion generation and control, and sensor information processing (image processing) for intelligent robots. The basic techniques for our research are

Recent Research

Development of a motor learning model that can explain the reuse of partially motor acquired skills in the past.

We are developing a motor learning model that explains the process of reusing partial dynamics in previously acquired controllers by introducing a mechanism, "translation estimation between mappings", into a motor learning model that estimates dependencies between various senses.

Automatic Generation of Control Rules for Musculoskeletal Arm Systems Based on the Estimation of Dependencies between Heterogeneous Sensors

We are developing a method for motion control that includes the process of identifying dependencies between different sensors and estimating "which sensor information can be used to achieve the desired control", considering a system that can perform redundant and multimodal sensing.

Robomech2024 in Utsunomiya

Mr.Kasahara and Mr.Takamori participated in Robomech2024 in Utsunomiya, Japan. They showed their research in Robomech. They said they could broaden their horizon about their research through their presentations and discussions among attendees. I believe this experience will be beneficial for them.
