Prof. Dr. Masayuki Inaba

Masayuki Inaba is a Professor in the Information Science and
Technology, Graduate School at the University of Tokyo.  He graduated
from the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of
Tokyo in 1981, and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the graduate
school of Information Engineering at The University of Tokyo in 1983
and 1986 respectively.  He was appointed as a lecturer in the
Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Tokyo in
1986, an associate professor in 1989, and a professor in the
Department of Mechano-Informatics in 2000, and also a professor in new
Department of Creative Informatics from 2005. He is directing the
Robotics Lab, JSK at The University of Tokyo.


His research interests include key technologies of robotic systems and
software architectures to advance robotics research.  His research
projects have included hand-eye coordination in rope handling,
vision-based robotic server system, remote-brained robot approach,
whole-body behaviors in humanoids, robot sensor suit with electrically
conductive fabric, flexible spined humanoid and developmental JSK
mother projects with the remote-brained system environment, life-size
assistive humanoids, musculoskeletal spined humanoid series,
whole-body soft sensor tissues, IRT home assitance with personal
mobility, open-source robotics middlewares, high speed-and-powered
legs for the next generation, on the budget from MEXT and MITI, such
as ongoing Grant-in-Aid Scientific Research(S) entitled "Developmental
Approach in Configuring Body and Behavior of Life-size Humanoids with
Whole-body Passivity and Attention Inductivity".


He received several awards including outstanding Paper Awards in 1987,
1998 and 1999 from the Robotics Society of Japan, JIRA Awards in 1994,
ROBOMECH Awards in 1994 and 1996 from the division of Robotics and
Mechatronics of Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, and Best Paper
Awards of International Conference on Humanoids in 2000 and 2006 with
JSK Robotics Lab members.
