Hiroshima University Biological System Engineering Laboratory


Living organisms, such as a human being, have remarkably skillful and advanced capabilities of motion control/information processing, which are highly sophisticated beyond the current engineering technology.
Our laboratory seeks to understand such exquisite biological functions from a viewpoint of the system and control theory, and investigates physiological characteristics of their mechanisms for the purpose of evolving a new theory/methodology inspired from the biological system.
Biologically inspired techniques are, then, applied to the robot and welfare fields to develop man-machine interface systems.
Our laboratory is composed of four research groups:
