Research

ロボットが人の身近、肌の触れ合う距離で活動を始める時代が到来しつつあります。既にロボットは市場に出ており、工場や家庭にロボットがいることが当たり前である状況において、ロボットは何をするべきか、どのような身体性や振る舞いを行い人と共在すべきかを明らかにします。人と人との間で行われている相互作用とその効果から、見た目のみのとどまらないロボットの真なる「人らしさ」は何かを研究しています。完全に人らしい見た目をしていても、人形などはどこか不気味で、親しみにくい印象を受けます。それはどこから来るのでしょうか、人間同士は見た目以外の何を見ているのでしょうか。日常における人同士の何気ない興隆の中で交わされる小さな気づかない「社会的刺激」。それらを観測、分析するシステムを構築し、実際の街中や環境においてロボットがそれを用いることで何が起こるかを明らかにします。

Theme1:The behavior which robots should have in the real environment

Overview
Field experiment in a mall

It is difficult to predict what will happen in the real environment with people in contrast to the controlled environment such as the factory or the warehouse. However, a robot in the real environment must respond to the unexpected events. To make robots do it, I research the Technogym senses behaviors of people and the robot system respond to the interaction in the real environment.

Theme2:The "Human-likeness" on the Human-robot collaboration

Overview
Go/NoGo task experiment by a person and a robot

Robots can be modified to the best shape fixed to the task. In the human-robot collaboration, what shape the robots must have? I research the "Human-likeness" that robots needs in the human-robot collaboration.

Theme3:The behavior of the robot to go Into the human community

Overview
The image of the robot in the human community

The communities such as hospitals, companies and schools wants robots to play do many tasks. How must a robot do to become not so much a tool but a member of the community. By putting robots in a community of people with same roles and using the knowledge of the ethnology, I research the mechanism that a existence become a member of a community.
