We conduct a wide range of research on human-assistive technologies, including "human augmentation" which assimilates with humans to complement, maintain, and improve their physical and mental functions and abilities, and "assistive robotics" which supports human life as a function independent of humans. Currently, as "human augmentation" technology, we are working on a full-dive VR interface named Motion-Less VR and various remote assistance systems using VR/AR/MR technologies. We are also working on autonomous navigation of mobile robots as a key "assistive robotics" technology. Furthermore, we are also working on integrated research of wireless power transfer and robotics technologies in order to completely eliminate power cables from our living space, which will strongly encourage the development of human-assistive technologies.
