Robotics technology will bring new value beyond automation. Panasonic established “Aug Lab” in April 2019 for research and development of self-extension.
Our mission is to explore the conditions for achieving Well-being through co-creation and prototyping with designers and creators in addition to perspectives other than engineering.
1. Scientific Approach
The scientific approach helps us understand elements like the mechanisms of human senses, emotions and behavior, as well as actions and transformation resulting from each external stimulus.
・Mechanism of Sense
Haptic feedback and any form of interaction involving touch.
・Mechanism of Emotion
Emotion recognition by image processing
・Mechanism of Behavior
Robotics to expand a person’s abilities
2. Open innovation
Creating an “Aug Lab” community with research partners possessing the latest knowledge (researchers, artists, etc.)
3. Development process design
Design, systematize, and promote human-centered development processes.
