Laboratory Overview
Research and development for automated driving
Although automobiles are convenient and a must in these days, they also have downsides such as wasteful fuel consumption, driving operation from traffic congestion and occurrence of traffic accidents. In our laboratory, we are aiming to make driving more efficient, more comfortable and safer by analyzing various characteristics of human being during the operation of driving and find the optimal support for it by driving simulator and our experimental car. And we are developing autonomous mini electric vehicle equipped with computer vision (deep learning) and lidar.
Laboratory Character We are working on automated driving technologies, which are vehicle revolution once in a hundred years. We can interact with related companies and touch the technologies of state-of-the-art.
