Research Summary

Yasutomo Kawanishi (Ph.D.)

Our goal is to recognize surrounding environments and humans around a robot. We are focusing on signal processing and pattern recognition using sensory data in various modality.

We mainly tackle these topics.

  • Human activity recognition, Facial expression recognition, and Intention estimation.
  • Multimodal sensor fusion for more various and much detailed object recognition.
  • Detection and description of unknown events/objects.
