Research Interest

Our group is working on cyber-physical & human systems, interconnected systems of mutually interacting cyber, physical and human components, for a variety of large-scale systems. In particular, we study in an effort to work out fundamental principles to coordinate human/society and highly-networked control systems to ensure optimality and robustness via distributed decision-makings. The main target application fields include smart agriculture, smart sky/ocean, and energy management. Beyond theory-oriented work, we are also addressing social implementation of networked robotics and human-robot collaborations through interdisciplinary collaborative research projects.
