Welcome

Welcome to the home page of Ohtsuka Laboratory, Department of Systems Science, Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University.

We work on the theory and practice of modeling, analysis, design, and control of a wide variety of dynamical systems. We investigate theory to solve universal and fundamental problems as well as find solutions to practical problems of social importance. We deal with systems in various fields: automobiles, robots, satellites, waste water processes, and people's electricity consumption behavior in electric power systems. We are actively collaborating with domestic and overseas research organizations and companies.

Faculty members of our lab teach courses in the Department of Systems Science as well as Mechanical and Systems Engineering Course in the Undergraduate School of Engineering Science, Faculty of Engineering. Students in our lab belong to those departments or courses.
