- Dr. Hisashi Ishihara became the Assistant Professor (Tenure-track) at the Frontier Research Base for Global Young Researchers (Feb. 9, 2014).
- Our JoiTech team (Osaka Univ. and Osaka Institute of Technology) won
the 1st prize in the Humanoid AdultSize League in
RoboCup 2013 Eindhoven
and got the Louis Vuitton Cup that is awarded to the most valuable team in the Humanoid League.
Prof. Asada is famous as one of founders of RoboCup whose final goal
is to build a team of eleven humanoids who can get a win against the
human world cup champion team, and the adult size class in the
humanoid league is the closest one to the final goal. The winning in
this class at RoboCup 2013 consisting of various leagues with about
400 teams and 3000 participants may indicate Japanese big potential in
science and technology.

Since 1992, we have been focusing the emergent robotics that seeks for
the design principle of robot behaviors through the interaction between
the robot and its environment.
We take the cognitive
developmental robotics approach through which we try to understand the
development of increasingly complex cognitive processes in natural and
artificial systems and how such processes emerge through physical/
