We study human centered robot systems which are used near human or with touching human. Medical robots and human care robots are typical examples of the robot systems. For such robot system, human friendly and safe properties are strongly demanded. Aiming practical applications, we study basic ideas, mechanisms, theories, and control methods for the human centered robot systems. We are also conducting collaborative research projects to meet the growing needs in the industries and the real world.
