Division of Intelligent Mechanical Systems

Features of our Division


Today our society faces challenges such as environmental issues, aging population, declining birthrate, and diminishing global competitiveness in manufacturing. These complex issues cannot be solved by conventional approaches. The Division of Intelligent Mechanical Systems aims to promote research and education in order to address these challenges focusing on the following two points.
One is a human-centered perspective. Innovation can be created by a thorough understanding of what people need when they need it.
The other is an integrated perspective. We seek to create solutions in order to make a positive difference to society by a multidisciplinary approach, integrating software and hardware technologies.
