Human Technology Opens a
Let us see the world that exceeds human capability -
Center Of Excellence (COE) program of Hyper Human
Technologies has started with two seed technologies at
: One is the high speed vision with the frame rate of 1kHz and the
other one is the high speed actuation with a maximum acceleration of 100G,
where G is the gravitational acceleration. We are going to explore the field
using two different approaches: One is to pursue a further progress in each
fundamental technology and to apply various fields, such as robotics,
bio-mining, circuit diagnosis, and human health care. It should be noted that
we have recently succeeded in developing the high speed vision with the frame
rate of 10kHz. The other is to combine the knowledge
in the fields of high speed vision and high speed actuation to develop a high
speed dynamic sensing system, and apply it to both robotics and biomedical
engineering. As an example, we could develop a sensor system which can obtain
eye stiffness of human eye within 40msec. Recent results will be shown with
video tape demonstration.
