Visit to Robotics Research Labs at Osaka

 

Nigel Crook, James Balkwill, and Matthias Rolf visited Osaka University, Japan, in order to establish collaborations in the area of robotics. The team visited the Labs of Prof. Asada (co-founder of the RoboCup soccer), Prof. Hosoda, and Prof. Ishiguro (who famously built an android version of himself, see picture). Topics of discussion included human-robot interactions, robot ethics, and actuator design.
