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.

PI’s information is available here.
Please feel free to contact Daisuke Yamane if you would like to visit the lab.
