<Research>

I am interested in the motion generation for multi-DOF robot using multi-modal time-series data based on machine learning, especially deep learning such as deep neural networks (DNN) and recurrent neural networks (RNN). The research composed of three projects:

  1.  Manipulation of flexible objects using multi-DOFs
  2.  Dynamics motion learning for multi-DOF flexible-joint robots
  3.  Tool-body assimilation model based on motor babbling
  • April 2015 – March 2017
    •  Object manipulation and grasping
      •  Manipulation of flexible objects using multi-DOF robot with deep learning
      • Grasping operation with real robot by using convolution neural network
  • April 2014 - March 2017
    • Dynamics motion learning for multi-DOF flexible-joint robots
      • Effective motion learning using motor babbling with RNN
      • Efficient motor babbling with RNN
      • Dynamic motion learning for multi-DOF flexible-joint robots with RNN
  • April 2010 – March 2017
    • Tool use by robot
      • Handling and grasp control with dexterous manipulation
      • Deriving which part of the tool to use based on the success possibility by affordance theory
      • Tool-body assimilation model based on motor babbling with RNN and deep learning
  • April 2011 – March 2013
    • Robot moving in congested environment with safe contact
