Award Paper's Name "Converting Motion Between Different Types of Humanoid Robots Using Genetic Algorithms"(Award date: 2014/05/30) 
In this research, we proposed a new method to create imitation motion between different kinds of robots. We evolved a conversion matrix, which converts joint angle data of a teacher robot into joint angle data of a student robot by using Genetic Algorithms that evaluated both the similarity and stability of imitation motions. As a result, we succeeded to generate the conversion matrix that converted motion not only imitating motion of the teacher robot, but also keeping the balance depending on the structure of the student robot.

It's my great pleasure to receive such an award. I'm really appreciate leading professors, who have supervised me kindly. I would like to keep devoting myself to study.
