Title: Mathematical Modeling of Comfort in Human Location and Its Application to Human Machine Systems
Abstract: Comfort is important to increase usability of human machine systems.It is, however, difficult to quantify the comfort due to its ambiguity.
In our laboratory, the Human Robotics Lab., conducts researches on cybernetic modeling of humans including sensory processing regarding our motions
and applys it to design and control problems of human machine systems.
In this lecture, Prof. Wada will introduce mathematical modeling of motion sickness and its application to comfort motion control of the automated vehicles. He will also talk a control method of transfemoral prostheses with high comfort.
