Research Interests
Our group is working on cooperative control and shared autonomy in human-robotic network teaming, and learning-based control and safe autonomy from pixels to torques (Fujita-Yamauchi Lab) and distributed energy management for energy efficient society (Hatanaka Lab). We are developing distributed optimization and learning algorithms for a variety of Cyber-Physical & Human Systems (Ref. [1, Sec. 4.7], [2]). In particular, we study in an effort to work out fundamental principles to render highly-networked control systems totally optimal and/or robust state via distributed decision-makings.
