Kazuaki SAWADA
Director Head of Actuation and Sensing Devices group

Kazuaki SAWADA

The Integrated Circuit Group (ICG) at Toyohashi University of Technology deals with the study of integrated circuits (ICs) and sensor devices using new materials and structures. Our ultimate goal is to realize high-performance integrated

Shigeki NAKAUCHI
Deputy Director Head of Human brain information group

Shigeki NAKAUCHI

We can see and recognize things, and act without feeling any difficulties. Our mission is to explore visual function and the mechanisms of the brain which allow us to do so, and to develop new technology, including color universal design, spectral imaging, for visual information processing based on the fundamental vision research.

Takayuki SHIBATA
Director of Venture Business Laboratory

Takayuki SHIBATA

Establishment of interdisciplinary Monodzukuri (manufacturing) basic technology in micro- and nano-scale. Novel micro- and nano-structuring techniques for manufacturing MEMS/NEMS devices, and MEMS-based platform for in vitro manipulation and analysis of living cells for supporting the creation of innovation in life science and biotechnology.

Kotaro TAKAYAMA
Professor Leader of advanced agricultural engineering

Kotaro TAKAYAMA

Advanced Agricultural Engineering Laboratory is focusing on the development of sensor-based plant diagnosis techniques (Chlorophyll fluorescence imaging, volatile organic compound measurement,photosynthesis and transpiration measurement etc.) for agricultural production under environmental control such as intelligent greenhouse and plant factory.

Atsuchi NAKABACHI
Associate Professor

Atsuchi NAKABACHI

Our research interests focus on the molecular basis for the symbiosis between multicellular organisms and microbes, which has not only been playing key roles in evolutionary history of life, but is also important for agricultural and medical biotechnologies.

Seiichiro ARIYOSHI
Associate Professor

Seiichiro ARIYOSHI

Terahertz-waves, located in the gap between radio-waves and light-waves, are called as the “frontier of light”. Our research interests focus on the development on highly sensitive terahertz-wave detectors using low-temperature and high-temperature superconductors, two-dimensional spectroscopic technologies and their new applications. I concurrently serve as the department of applied chemistry and life science.

The research aims to understand the cognitive neuroscience behind high-engagement tasks. In these tasks, two brain states may emerge; a “flow state” marked by effortless super performance and enjoyment, or a “choking state” characterized by sudden failure and anxiety. Under social conditions, team flow emerges as in sports teams, and music bands. We use this knowledge to create neurofeedback mechanisms to enhance flow and prevent choking.

My research interest includes Human–Robot/Agent Interaction (HRI/HAI), which focuses on the interactions between humans and robots or software agents. For developing robots and media that interact with humans, we engage in a study of “Constructive understanding of communication through HRI/HAI,” elucidating the nature of human communication and human behavior mechanisms.
