[Japanese] [back]


We are investigating the speech production mechanism, aiming for a talking robot that mimics the articulatory motions. We develop a system that simultaneously measures articulatory movements and speech and analyze their dates across many speakers. We are also studying about the relationship between articulatory and acoustic behaviors in order to synthesize a natural sounding voice. In addition, we are exploring the strategy of motor control in various force fields and in interaction with the various objects to investigate the information processing mechanisms involved in of human movement
