Satoshi Miura, Associate Professor(Lecturer), received the 37th Young Investigation Excellence Award from the Robotics Society of Japan.
The Award is one of the many awards of the Robotics Society of Japan with the longest history. To encourage research and technological development and to actively train young researchers and engineers.
In addition to the certificate, medals are awarded.
I am very honored to receive this prestigious award. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the collaborated professors, staff members, and students involved in the joint research.
I am engaged in research on robots and AI that are useful for society using human biometric information. Regarding the content of this award, we are conducting research to evaluate the intuitive operability of medical and welfare support robots using analysis of human brain activity and reflect it in design and control. For example, it is used in the development of surgical support robots and mobility support equipment. In addition, by utilizing these technologies, we are developing interfaces with unique structures and building intelligent controls for them.
Encouraged by this award, I will continue to work even harder.
