Welcom to Umeda laboratory's website!

  UMEDA Laboratory's official English appellation is "Intelligent Sensing System Laboratory". This laboratory was launched in 1994. The main research theme is in realizing "Intelligent Sensing" systems for the robotics. The laboratory conducts a wide range of research on topics including, but not limited to, sensing systems for robotics, novel sensors for 3D measurement, Human-Machine Interfaces using gesture recognition, Image Processing, and more recently, deep neural network-based sensing.

Research system

  In UMEDA Lab., each student works on their own research theme. The outlines of research themes of undergraduate students are determined by discussing with the students themselves, under guidance from Professor Kazunori Umeda, Assistant Professor Sarthak Pathak, and senior graduate students. Graduate students usually determine their research themes theselves.
  In engineering, collaborative research is important. For this reason, the laboratory is divided into several graduate student-centered groups in which the students support each other to learn and enjoy research.
