This research was an attempt to make a constructivists'
approach to the intelligence and its information processing of the humans
for the scientific and technological foundation. It includes an application
to functional simulation of the human information, which eventually opens
the way to natural communication between the human and the humanoid robot.
The outcomes of this research are not only technical publications, but also
nine patents filed in Japan and their applications in foreign nations. The
developed software for the measurements and computations of the humans is
also an important intellectual property. A portion of the software for dynamics
computation was integrated into a humanoid robot simulator and has been
used by approximately 300 researchers worldwide. The kinematic motion generation
algorithm was also adopted in the software that supports animators in the
film and game industries for higher productivity. The musculoskeletal model
and its dynamics computation will find direct applications in medicine.
Also developed are sensors and electronics circuit boards for the humanoid
We will continue and extend the research with the current momentum which
we have earned through five years of the project. It would be our pleasure
if the current and future results of research can find various fields of
contribution in our society.
