About MPR group

The Machine Perception and Robotics Group (MPRG) is a research group in the College of Engineering, Chubu University that is formed from the Fujiyoshi Laboratory of the Department of Robotic Science and Technology and the Yamashita Laboratory of the Department of Computer Scinece, to study “Machine Perception and Robotics”. This group enables the most suitable members to freely work on research without constraints of affiliation, and started operation in April, 2014.

Treating a robot in the broadest sense as a “system that assimilates data from the outside world (sensing), comprehends its meaning (recognition), judges what it should do (decision), and operates in the outside world in a manner to benefit humans (behavior)”, this research group tackles research with the target of implementing in robots a visual field function that creates the process of sensing → recognition → decision.

Our research field is the whole range of image recognition, centered on object detection and people image analysis that uses machine learning technologies. Our aim is to perform useful research, while switching between fundamental and applied research.
