Featured Research and Researchers

Staying flexible

Researchers at Chuo University invent a flexible patch containing carbon nanotubes and stretchable conductors that can fit inside a pipe to detect real-time changes in water temperature or the presence of contaminants, which may improve sanitation during industrial processes

Investigating human nature thorough the face and body / Exploring the development of the visual world

The question of what a face meant to human beings was the starting point for me as a psychologist. The face and body can consciously and unconsciously represent a person's history and current psychological state.

Creating biomaterials for human health and medicine

My specialty is "Chemistry", which is a science closely related to people's lives and nature. Advanced technologies, such as biotechnology and electronics, are also supported by chemistry.

Bring solutions to the problems associated with AI and robotics regulations

Now, engaging in research on laws and regulations in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics from the perspective of both products liability law and cyber law.

Establishing a circular economy in the Asian region through industry–academia–government collaboration

"Why don't they segregate their garbage?" I began researching the economy through resource recycling (circular economy) because of the discomfort I felt while backpacking during my years as a student.

I would like to apply statistical methods to human behavior data and solve social problems.

Statistics help us analyze the causes and trends of all kinds of events in the world. The reason I decided to pursue statistics in earnest was when I was in junior high school, I won a prize in the Nagano Prefecture Statistics Graph Contest.

Creating Innovation with Biological Soft Robots

I have loved insects since I was a child, and since becoming a robotics researcher, I have been working on "biological robots" inspired by living things such as worms, water striders, and snails.

Make your everyday life more enjoyable and fruitful with robot technology!

The research theme is “supporting human activities using robotics technology.” Although a robot looks like a single object, it is actually a system consisting of multiple elements, such as sensors, actuators, and computers.
