We are developing technologies which enable vehicles, robots, and infrastructures to work efficiently and reliably in the ocean space.

We are developing marine technology devices and integrated systems to form smart structures, in order for autonomous systems and decarbonization in marine transportation. A smart structure with sensor networks, processors and actuators has an ability to know the conditions of itself and around it, and to adapt them in real time for more efficient and safe operation, as a human being with nerve networks and a brain does. In addition, lightweight and strong structures/actuators enhance the ability. We are studying on fiber-optic sensor networks with high accuracy and resolution, diagnosis/prognosis techniques based on inverse analysis or artificial intelligence, and lightweight materials/structures made from carbon fibers to apply them to not only offshore structures and marine vessels but also aircrafts, space vehicles, infrastructures, and robots. Our goal is to create novel technologies for ocean exploration based on smart structures.
