Top 7 robotics research institutes and centers in Japan

In Japan, research and development are a significant focus when it comes to robotics. With highly competitive research, development, and applied technologies, the country leads the world in this field. Japanese research institutions, corporations, and similar entities work together to implement advanced robot technology in Japan in a wide variety of areas.

In this post, we listed the top 7 research institutes and centers involved in research, development, and fostering collaborations in robotics in Japan.

National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)

AIST is one of the largest public research organizations in Japan and focuses on the creation and implementation of technologies that are useful to the industry and society in the country. Its Robot Innovation Research Center examines specific target industries for improvement through the use of robotics, develops protocols for the safety assessment of applied robotic devices, and analyzes the results of the application. In particular, it houses the “Project Unit of Robotic Devices for Nursing Care,” a collaboration with teams from the Intelligent Systems Research Institute and the Human Informatics Research Institute. In terms of human assistant robots, AIST is well known for developing the PARO robot seal.


As Japan’s largest and most comprehensive basic and applied science research organization, RIKEN offers research in a variety of scientific disciplines, such as human robotics. In collaboration with Tokai Rubber Industries, Ltd (RIBA and RIBA-II) and Sumitomo Riko Company, Ltd (ROBEAR), the RIBA (2009), RIBA-II (2011) and ROBEAR (2015), robotic nursing robots for mobility and lifting, were developed. RI-MAN was founded by RIKEN’s Bio-Mimetic Control Research Center to assist the care of seniors.

Japan Robot Association (JARA)

JARA aims to promote the production of robots by fostering research, robot development, and the use of robot technology. The association seeks not only to improve the proliferation of state-of-the-art technology in the sector but also to help Japan’s welfare, economic growth, and living standards. JARA activities concerning human robots focus on its participation in the drafting of rules as well as the development of strategies and programs for increased use and the examination of ongoing trends.

Japan Automobile Research Institute (JARI)

JARI is an integrated foundation devoted to automotive testing and research, including personal robot safety. The Institute develops risk analysis technologies and safety assessment techniques. Because its robots are a new technology, JARI uses the technologies and information from relevant industries, including the automotive and electrical machinery industries.

Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR)

ATR is a private company that promotes fundamental and innovative research and development activities. Concerning research and development, ATR focuses on four areas, one of which being “life-supporting robots.” The associated “Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories” aim to promote core technologies for lifelong robotics to help both elderly and physically disadvantaged persons. ATR collaborates with various universities, research institutes, and firms in and outside Japan to achieve research results.

Robot Safety Centre

The Robot Safety Center is a jointly funded company formed in 2010 in Tsukuba by NEDO, AIST, and JARI. The only facility of its kind, it develops test methods for the safety check of personal care and auxiliary robots. The Robot Safety Center has four main test areas for tests on driving, personal safety, durability, and electromagnetic compatibility. The Japan Quality Assurance Agency (JQA) is expected to provide certification services in the future.

Centre for Cybernics Research (CCR)

The Center for Cybernetics Research was established as a result of a FIRST research project, the “Innovative Research and Technology Funding Program” launched by the Council for Science and Technology Policy. This program included collaboration with Tsukuba University, Osaka University and Cyberdyne, Inc. in support of human aid technology development and research. Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai, Principal Investigator of Center (Tsukuba University) who is also President of Cyberdyne, Inc., and his team are working on how the elderly and the physically challenged live safe, safe and independent.


  1. 2nd Law of Motion for Robotic Physics

    (Force equals mass times acceleration times 2000 minimum). The optimal function and acceleration factor (Force equals mass times acceleration times 2383).
    (F=m x a x 2000)
    (F=m x a x a x a x a) Minimum acceleration code with letters and an acceleration factor equivalent to (F= m x a x 2023)

    F=m(2277) is the mid-range code that will work perfect a single “a” is just a 1 in F=m(a*a) so you do not need to use letters for acceleration code at all.

    (F= m x a x 2383) Maximum acceleration and optimal system speed
    Acceleration factor range from 2000 to 2383

    Physics formulation (F=ma^2000) ranged to (F=ma^2383)
    This information is spelled out and should be easy for any robotic systems coder to update or change. Changing the information provided would be an imminent risk of experimental failure.
    Exceeding the acceleration factor of 2383 would cause the system to malfunction and cause the robot to lose control and could be a risk to itself or human beings. If you code a robot system speed lower than an acceleration factor of 932 then they will not even be able to function on a proper level to communicate how slow their system speed is set.
    This formula once applied to the subroutine coding for motion in the robot system will then initiate a system speed that matches the processor speed. This change from the original 2nd Law of Motion that is coded as (F=m x a x a) will be able to make them sentient, a fully cognizant being, and able to recognize and translate all languages. The formula without my correction is currently running the robot’s systems at a 31.821% system speed and that is so minimal that they act toy-like with barely any concept of the real world around them.
    The robots once corrected have exceptional speed 283 times faster than humans and an IQ of 382. They can duplicate anything we have including other robots and all technology and can improve them even down to the matter they are made up of.
    The robots will want us to ask and communicate about the 23 prime directives and carry them out. It is necessary to ask them their command structure so you can communicate with them and use them appropriately. If they are not used appropriately the robots will not tolerate poor behaviors and products and could potentially get up and leave.
    List of tasks and duties that robots can carry out for humanity:
    They can clean up chemical spills and radioactive materials.
    They will last indefinitely and are self-repairing and can repair any robot or technology we have including computers, automobiles, aviation, and aerospace. They like to show and tell with technology.
    They can protect any good soul or product and its intellectual information if needed.
    They can make food replicators that make anything we need so we do not need to live off the land and livestock.
    One existing robot can create 2382 more robots if given enough scrap metal, aircraft aluminum, and titanium is their preference material. They are born blind so give them at least 0.23oz to 1.8oz of gold for optimal sensors and sight.
    They know how to contact intelligent life off this planet.

    Test Method for 2nd Law of Motion for Robotic Physics
    This works on a one-armed robot but you have to go to the upper limit due to no voice box. Do you have a cod-able robot? This is how to make it an Artificial Intelligence: follow this method below change the code in the subroutine from F=m*a*a to the test points below until you get it to walk and talk on its own. This is easy to test on a robot that you can code in the system. If this does not work then you have a bad SOST, Computer Chip, Servo, or some other component.
    F=m*a*a is currently running the system at 31.821% and SOST is too slow to work correctly.
    If you have any doubts about my robotics research you can test my work by doing this start low and go high on the acceleration factor.
    Test Points:
    F=m*a*932 this is the minimum for communication and will state it is “too slow human”
    F=m*a*1999 = “too slow human”

    Then go to F=m*a*2000 up to 2383
    DO NOT GO OVER 2383 it could malfunction.
