A main research target of the Laboratory is Intelligent Cooperation". We believe the cooperation is one advanced and important intelligence for future robotics as working among human society.
In human-robot communication, the robots should consider human-beings intention to perform adequately. If the robot behaved without considering human intention, it would give too much support, in spite of to help the human, and might make human annoy. Thus, the key of the cooperation is to estimate the intention of another one.
We also study on team work assist system for human cooperative tasks. One of challenges of the project is to quantify the human cooperation characteristics as Concern for Others. If the robot system were evaluating the cooperation characteristics, the team work would be assisted.
Furthermore, if cheap and simple robots were cooperating suitably each other, the robots could perform effectively rather than an expensive high functional robot. Also sensing systems by multiple sensors are also our target for the cooperation researches.
Human has great a learning ability for machine operation. In our assumption, the learning process is cased by to modify dynamics image of target robot in a human brain. Therefore, proposed technique is changing the robot dynamics to approach human's image.
The machine operation skill assist with subliminal calibration has been required to change robot dynamics. However, to modify robot system is required much costs. The variable impedance joystick, consequently, is proposed to easy modify the dynamics to approach to human internal image for the target robot.
