In Pursuit of Robots that Act Autonomously to Support Human Activities

Miura Jun

Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering


Professor Jun Miura seeks to create service robots that recognize their surrounding circumstances, allowing them to act autonomously to support people's lives. They are not humanoid robots that walk on two legs, whose development was led by Japan, nor are they communication robots that talk with a charming voice and have charming facial expressions. The robot that his research team has so far developed moves on wheels and is not designed for looks. This is the result of prioritizing the function of autonomous operation in the complexity of the real world. Professor Miura was interviewed about his research approach and the application of the robot in the agricultural sector.
