Human Assistive Robot Technology (RT)

The Iwata Lab is conducting research and development in the areas of Rehabilitation Assistive RT, Medical Care Assistive RT, Sports Learning Assistive RT, and "Third Arm": Voluntarily Operative Wearable Robot Arm by focusing on the senses, the mechanism of movement, and the dynamic characteristics of humans with human assistive robot technology (RT). Our goal is to realize commercialization of these products in conjunction with hospitals and private businesses. Additionally, we are conducting cutting-edge research in the areas of Support System for Teleoperators of Disaster Response Robots and Application of Electronic Nanosheet jointly with other research groups within the university.
