We are CMS Group!

Welcome to Computational Multiphysics Systems Laboratory. As one of the world's two computational multiphysics systems laboratory, our group led by Professor Tomonari Furukawa investigate the analysis and synthesis of computational multiphysics systems which range from deformable bodies studied in computational and experimental mechanics to rigid bodies studied in robotics. Enjoy exploring our webpage!

Our Team


  • We have been successful in teleoperating a robot using SLAM (no vision) and allowing the robot to autonomously return to the base station in case of communication loss. Visit Monitoring page for details (May 2011)
  • We have developed SLAM algorithms which can achieve the world's highest resolution (5cm/1deg). Visit SLAM page for details (February 2011)
  • We have developed a new defect identification system which can identify defect locations with respect to a structural frame using a network of fixed and mobile sensors. (December 2010)
  • We were successful in developing the world's first Platform- and Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulator (PHILS). (July 2010)
  • We became Top 10 Finalist in Multi-Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge (MAGIC) 2010. (January 2010)
