Research Interests

Fumiya Iida works at the intersection of robotics and biology. Through abstraction of the design principles of biological systems, his group develops core competences which are

  • the rapid prototyping of
    • dynamic mechatronics systems
    • bionic sensors
    • motor technologies
  • computational control optimization techniques

His main goals are to contribute to a deeper understanding of adaptivity and autonomy of animals, and to engineer novel robotic applications which are more adaptive, resilient, and energy efficient.

Specific research topics include

  • legged robot locomotion
  • evolutionary robotics
  • human-robot interactions
  • embodied artificial intelligence
