Professor / Tomohiro YENDO
Prof.Yendo is very friendly to students. He always gives us advices for research and other matters. On the other hand, in situation other than research, he is close to students and often makes small talks.

Research Content

We research on three main areas below.
・Three-dimensional (3D) display
We study on glasses-free 3D displays and 3D head-up displays. Transparency for augmented reality (AR) display and multi-person use are especially considered.
・Visible light communication (VLC)
We study on camera-based wireless communications by using visible light. Our target includes road-to-vehicle communications from traffic lights and on-board cameras, and smartphone-based system transmitting from electronic message boards or illuminations.
We research on special functional cameras, for example, telephoto camera shooting direction changes instantly, and plate-shaped camera whose viewpoint is distant from the physical camera position.

This is an innovative spherical 3D display.
You can study based on your own ideas, build an actual prototype, and demonstrate it.

A Day in the Lab

Our laboratory doesn't adopt a core time system, so you can do research at any time you want. The seminar is divided into two groups, 3Ddisplay and VLC. In addition, there is a seminar in which papers are read, introduced, and discussed. When we get stuck in researches, we often have discussions with students and the professor. In addition, our relationships are very good in this laboratory, such as going out for dinner after the seminar.

This is a state of our laboratory. They are discussing on a research theme.
