Our goal is to accelerate innovation
by eliminating trial and error in R&D process.

Qualitative sensory expressions are used widely in the R&D, evaluation, education, and training in the development of devices for humans, and significant trial and error is involved. The result is that it takes time for seeds for innovative technology to reach society. This program proposes to use “elaborate fakes equipped with sensors” to quantitatively understand qualitative sensory expressions and quickly deliver technology seeds to society by eliminating trial and error. The first target application is the medical field, and we will develop a bionic humanoid, an elaborate human model equipped with sensors to serve as a substitute for humans and test animals. This program will also achieve a medical revolution by developing a smart arm using robotic technology seeds to conduct precision surgeries from small openings. Expanding these results to other industries will lead to a new industrial revolution.
