Welcome to Yamane Group (PI: Daisuke Yamane) at Ritsumeikan University.

For the future cyber-physical system era where people, things, and society are seamlessly connected, we use MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) technology to research and develop microsensors / actuators / energy harvesters with “smart” functions that can autonomously respond to changes in the environment.
