Computer Aided Design for Future Product

In our laboratory, we study next generation computer aided design system that implements geometric modeling, conceptual design support, decision making support, various optimizations and lifecycle assessment for improving the designers’ ability.

Research Themes

High-quality subdivision surfaces based on boundary conditions
Conceptual design CAD including lifecycle assessment and optimization technigue
Decision making support, compliant mechanism and robot path planning based on optimization techniques
Collaborative work between a humanoid robot and a human


Compliant vehicle suspension

Integrated optimization of functional structure and components layout
