Sustaining and Maintaining the Functions and Capabilities of the Human Mind & Body
Augmented Human technology leading to optimal conditions
Sustaining and maintaining human capabilities and functions is essential for a full life. To realize this, we need to precisely value the mutual interactions between humans and the environment. Our research concentrates on sustaining the human body and mind by developing “suitable connections” for humans.
We are aiming to realize a system which adapts to the surrounding environment and humans in it from the perspective of an ‘Intelligent Space’. By collecting data from sensors and actuators scattered over the entire living space, we will learn the behavior of the user and adapt the surroundings to their characteristics.
There are many ways to apply this technology. Examples include the daily monitoring of the physiological condition of the body for improving daily life, understanding respiration rhythms to solve insomnia and improve the quality of sleep, or introducing therapy robots which can provide enjoyment or relief.
