As part of the JEMARO curriculum, invited professors may join the program to teach bonus classes. Our second-year students, currently studying at Keio University, Japan, got to meet Prof. Guillaume CARON in this context, for a lecture on Visual Servoing and a personal tour of Tsukuba Joint Robotics Laboratory. Guillaume Caron is a French Associated Professor at Université de Picardie Jules Verne and was appointed Co-Director of this laboratory in Japan in January 2022 .

JRL was established more than 10 years ago by the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST),and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), two of the world's leading research institutions.

The major focus areas of JRL are:
  • Humanoid robots: multi-contact planning, control and model-based optimization, retargeting
  • Cognitive robots, applied neuroscience and intelligent interaction
  • Human modeling for human-centered design and human monitoring
