Our group is located on the 9th floor of the Nagase Hongo Building near the Hongo Campus of the University of Tokyo access. The building is located between Akamon (red gate) and Hongo Sanchome Station on Hongo Street, and it takes about 8 minutes on foot from the engineering area, and about 3 minutes on foot from Hongo Sanchome Station.

In addition to the actual robots including robot arms, VR-related equipment and sensors such as depth cameras and motion capture devices are available at the activity site, which can be combined and used according to the purpose of your own research and development activities. We also provide tutorials on how to use the hardware and software.
