Biography

Yudai Ashida joined the IATSL team in September 2013. His research interests include human emotional states and user adaptability of assistive technology and he has been working on the “Personal Assistive Robots to Support Aging-in-Place” project. He focuses on acceptance of assistive robots for the users and plans to measure it by physiological data such as electrocardiogram (ECG) and galvanic skin response (GSR).

Yudai holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from The University of Tokyo. For his undergraduate final year project, he focused on driving of people with dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and deepened understanding of the relationship between driving performances and cognitive functions of people with MCI and mild dementia.
