In September 2017, we started SoLARIS Inc.
, the first startup company started from Chuo University. SoLARIS was founded with the goal of commercialization based on research results achieved at Chuo University. The main founding members were myself and Assistant Professor Yasuyuki Yamada, a member of the laboratory which I operate.
Normally, we would be seeking development business for innovative technological systems based on the soft robotics and soft actuation such as artificial muscles developed at our laboratory. However, for the time being, we are focusing on the commercialization of peristaltic movement mixing-transportation equipment for solid fuel rockets, which includes our technology as a core technology. Moving forward, please expect great things from Chuo University and SoLARIS.
