Speaker: Dr. Takahiro Wada , Ritsumeikan University
Part 1: Technical seminar on “Automated Vehicles for Humans: Biological Cybernetics meets Intelligent Robot Systems”
Part 2: Exchange students scholarship program between SoICT and Ritsumeikan University
Abstract for seminar:
Automated vehicles or self-driving cars have been researched enthusiastically, and automated driving is almost technically achieved for a variety of environment according to the dramatic advances of machine learning/pattern recognition techniques as well as sophisticated control technologies. On the other hand, comfort and easy-to-use by humans in the automated driving are a kind of “final frontier”, which is not investigated well.
We, Human Robotics Laboratory, has researched biological cybernetics or human modeling to understand human characteristics such as neuroscientific, cognitive, or behavioral viewpoints, and has successfully applied them to comfortable and easy-to-use intelligent robotic systems such as rehabilitation robotics and automated vehicles. One of interesting examples that audience may be interested in, is “mathematical model of motion sickness”. In this talk, Prof. Wada will present several examples of the automated vehicles researches for humans including 1) vehicle motion control avoiding motion sickness, 2) smooth control authority transfer to human manual driving, and 3) human’s trust in automated vehicles.
