  • Proposal of an ultrasonic sensor array with flexible and scalable
    • Abstract: In measuring on ultrasonic sensor array, measured objects have different shapes and sizes. Therefore, we have to move sensor array mechanically according to the shape and size of the measured objects. This problem would cause to need much time for measuring. To solve this problem, we propose the organizing method of the ultrasonic sensor array, whose sensors can be flexibility and scalability applied to arbitrary objects with different shapes and sizes, respectively. In this proposed structure, several ultrasonic sensors compose a module. The modules are connected by serial communication with flexible connectors and can be bending. In this paper, we develop a test bed hardware of the single module and verify the operation.

  • Heterogeneous recurrent neural networks for natural language model
    • Abstract: Neural networks for language model are proposed and their performances are explored. The proposed network consists of two recurrent networks of which structures are different to each other. Both networks accept words as their inputs, translate their distributed representation, and produce the probabilities of words to occur from their sequence of input words. Performances for the proposed network are investigated through constructions for language models, as compared with a single recurrent neural and a long short-term memory network.

  • Method to analyze a local community as a complex adaptive system for
           resident-centered local community vitalization
    • Abstract: A community is a system that cannot exist without the involvement of self-motivated people, and it is composed of humans, “Mono,” “Koto”, and their relationality. “Mono” in Japanese denotes a physically perceived entity (tangible), while “Koto” denotes a cognitively conceived entity (intangible). In other words, a local community is a typical example of a complex adaptive system, and it can be simulated by a suitable model such as multi-agent systems approach; this implies that it is possible to develop a local community as a complex adaptive system using appropriate design and analysis. In this paper, we investigated the methods to analyze a local community. We visualized the day-wise relationships among the experimental participants using the passing-each-other data collected from them. As a result, we confirmed that each participant formed clusters that varied day-wise. We could also confirm several features which helped establish that a local community is a complex adaptive system. Furthermore, the results were strikingly different for a weekday compared to a holiday.

  • A deep unified framework for suspicious action recognition
    • Abstract: As action recognition undergoes change as a field under influence of the recent deep learning trend, and while research in areas such as background subtraction, object segmentation and action classification is steadily progressing, experiments devoted to evaluate a combination of the aforementioned fields, be it from a speed or a performance perspective, are far and few between. In this paper, we propose a deep, unified framework targeted towards suspicious action recognition that takes advantage of recent discoveries, fully leverages the power of convolutional neural networks and strikes a balance between speed and accuracy not accounted for in most research. We carry out performance evaluation on the KTH dataset and attain a 95.4% accuracy in 200 ms computational time, which compares favorably to other state-of-the-art methods. We also apply our framework to a video surveillance dataset and obtain 91.9% accuracy for suspicious actions in 205 ms computational time.

  • An exoskeletal motion instruction with active/passive hybrid movement:
           effect of stiffness of haptic-device force-feedback system
    • Abstract: Haptic devices have been studied as a useful tool for motion instruction. In this paper, we take up the method in which the device momentarily instructs the learners to reduce errors of their reproduced movements by giving force. Subjects trained two-stroke hand motions on a horizontal plane. The subjects learned lengths, angles, and velocities of each of the two strokes. The device-exerted force was calculated by multiplying a stiffness to the momentary joint angular errors. The servomotor stiffness with respect to a geared-motor rotation was chosen from 0.5, 1.5, 4.5, 13.5, and 40.5 N cm/deg. The experiment constituted of the training stage and the short-term recall stage. In the instruction trials, subjects were asked to “actively” conduct their recognized movement and to modify their momentary movements, perceiving the device-forced passive movement and/or device-exerted force. The experimental results showed that the reproduction errors in the short-term recall stage under the larger stiffness conditions were approximately smaller. However, the error reduction of the length tended to converge for 4.5 N cm/deg or more condition, and the error reductions of the angle and average velocity tended to converge for 13.5 N cm/deg or more condition. In addition, maximum device forces given in the instruction trials tended to increase as the stiffness increased.

  • Time series analysis of body sway caused by several matrix-shaped tactile
           stimuli on body trunk
    • Abstract: Postural control is an essential function of the human body that uses several senses and information from the body as input, processes the input and then provides output to the muscles for control. In this study, we examine a method wherein several matrix-shaped tactile stimuli (MSTS) located on the skin of the trunk are used to away subjects’ bodies. To clarify the relationship between body sway and the MSTS, the subjects were tracked using a high-speed camera, a foot pressure distribution measuring instrument, and two acceleration sensors. Owing to the nature of using human subjects, the resulting data had high variance; therefore, each trial data set exhibits different features. The effects of each MSTS on body sway and the dynamics of body sway are discussed and evaluated here. Additionally, we propose a single trial analysis method based on the clustering based Gaussian mixture model and smoothing filtering.

Unfortunately, some of pages are created for malicious intention. Therefore, detecting and identifying malicious Facebook pages is a challenging task. To achieve the task, features extracted from four parts of pages, i.e., page details, product/service details, user responses and post behavior of administrator are examined for the detection. The extracted features are investigated to detect reliable and unreliable pages based on supervised machine learning. First, Facebook pages are randomly collected and then they are labeled by five users. Facebook pages with agreement of five users are selected and their information are retrieved using the Facebook Graph API. Next, features are extracted from the information and investigated in the experiments. The experimental results indicate that the classification prediction is improved to 91.37% of accuracy. Finally, the significant features are analyzed to distinguish between unreliable and reliable pages.

  • Dynamically evolving algorithm for minimizing the energy consumption of a
    • Abstract: Global warming and environmental destruction are caused, in part by the mass consumption of energy by industries that use robotic manipulators. Many trajectories planning of the manipulators are determined by giving priority to the operation efficiency such as the operating time and controllability. And it may not be taking the consumption energy into consideration in the trajectory planning. The minimization of the energy under the equation of motion of the manipulator can be reduced to a two-point boundary value problem. This problem can be solved analytically if the equation of motion is linear. However, the equation of motion of a two-links manipulator is non-linear. This paper describes an application of the genetic algorithm based evolution strategy to solve minimizing the consumption energy of a manipulator with non-linear friction at the joints. When applying the genetic algorithm, it is necessary to define the relation between trajectory functions and genes. Fourier cosine series with Mth order are used in this paper. In this minimization problem of the consumption energy, there are many local minimum points due to the non-linearity. A major topic of this paper is to discuss the number of M to increase the accuracy of the solution without falling into the local minimum point. This paper has proposed to change M in the progress of evolution.

  • Investigation of multi-layer neural network performance evolved by genetic
    • Abstract: This paper presents a study on the investigation of multi-layer neural networks (MLNNs) performance evolved with genetic algorithm (GA) for multi-logic training patterns applied to various network functions. Specifically, we have concentrated on the Sigmoid, Step and ReLU functions to evaluate and simulate their performances in the network. We have revealed that GA training gives good training results in evolutionary computation by changing of Sigmoid, ReLU and Step as the activity functions in MLNN performance. Sigmoid function has proved to train all patterns for all outputs without any challenge as compared to ReLU function and Step in this study. We are still trying to see how a ReLU function could be trained with GA for MLNNs performance for the two input and four output training patterns termed as the multi-logic pattern training about multiple training parameters.

  • 3D measurement of a moving target using multiple slits with a random-dot
    • Abstract: A measurement system for moving objects using a multiple-slit projection method with random dots is introduced. In measuring moving objects, proper detection of moving objects from a single image is required considering the unique image of the slits with random dots pattern. A robust technique to extract a moving object from an image is introduced in the present paper to reduce the inappropriate influence of random dots. Generally, the cumbersome calibration required must be performed manually using a scale. Therefore, in the present paper, a semi-automatic calibration method is introduced. Using this technique, the calibration process is greatly simplified without reducing the accuracy.

  • Mono-camera based vehicle localization using lidar intensity map for
           automated driving
    • Abstract: This paper reports an image-based localization for automated vehicle. The proposed method utilizes a mono-camera and an inertial measurement unit to estimate the vehicle pose. Self-localization is implemented by a map matching technique between the reference digital map and sensor observations. In general, the same types of sensors are used for map data and observations. However, this study is focused on the mono-camera based method using Lidar-based map for the purpose of a low-cost implementation. Image template matching is applied to provide a correlation distribution between the captured image and the predefined orthogonal map. A probability of the vehicle pose is then updated using the obtained correlation. The experiments were carried out for real driving data on an urban road. The results have verified that the proposed method estimates the vehicle position in 0.11[m] positioning errors on real-time.

  • The degree of robustness based on hierarchical DEA
    • Abstract: Data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a method that is used to evaluate the efficiency values of decision-making units (DMUs), and several methods to evaluate the robustness of efficiency against the changes in specific input or output items has been developed. Although, it is difficult to figure out how robust efficiency values of DMUs are quantitatively considering all input and output items. To overcome this problem, we propose a degree of robustness, τ, based on a hierarchical DEA model. The proposed degree is formulated based on the efficiency value of each combination of input and output items, the number of input and output items of each combination, and parameter p. This parameter p represents the degree of importance on non-characteristic nodes relative to that of the characteristic nodes. The robustness of efficiency considering all input and output items can be evaluated by the proposed degree.

  • A method of character input for the user interface with a low degree of
    • Abstract: In recent times, smart devices equipped with small touch panels have become very popular. Many such smart devices use a software keyboard for character input. Unfortunately, software keyboards have a limitation: the number of buttons and the input degrees of freedom remain the same, because a button and an input value correspond one-to-one. Thus, if we reduce the screen size while the button size remains the same, the number of buttons must decrease. Alternatively, if we maintain the number of buttons and reduce the screen size, the size of the button decreases, making input increasingly difficult. In this study, we investigate a new character input method that is specifically adapted for use on small screens. The proposed input interface has 4 × 2 operational degrees of freedom and consists of four buttons and two actions. By handling two operations as one input, 64 input options are secured. Additionally, we experimentally evaluate the proposed character input user interface deployed on a smart device. The proposed method enables an input of approximately 25 characters per minute, and it shows robust input performance on a small screen compared to previous software methods. Thus, the proposed method is better suited to small screens than were previous methods.

  • Stable pulling out motion for a dual-arm robot
    • Abstract: Many disaster response robots have been studied and developed to reduce the risk of secondary disaster. These robots are expected to improve efficiency and safety. In this paper, we consider a task that a dual-arm disaster response robot pulls a bar whose length and mass are unknown out of a wall as debris removal. Safe working is important in the disaster site to remove debris. Therefore, our objective is to develop a stable pulling out motion. To achieve pulling a target bar out stably, we need to know the physical parameter of the bar. Therefore, the robot uses force/torque sensors attached to the wrists of the robot to estimate the mass and center of gravity position of the bar. Then, the robot controls the bar attitude with the estimated parameters after the bar is pulled out of the wall. Experimental results for verification show the effectiveness of the proposed motion.

  • Quantitative Evaluation of Streaming Image Quality for Robot
    • Abstract: To develop a measure of streaming video quality for remotely operated robots, we need to know the critical factors for the quality of control. Controlling robots remotely is crucial for disaster response, and many attempts have been made to create such systems. Wireless communication, which is used in remote-control systems for unmanned vehicles, changes dynamically and the streaming quality also changes with the quality of the network. However, wireless conditions are not typically measured in conventional robot systems. In this paper, to develop a quality measure for remote control using video properties, we investigate critical factors such as delay and the degradation of image quality. We also introduce the concept of a quality-of-control measure using delay and degradation of image-quality curves from simulation environments, and we discuss the impacts of changing communication delay and degrading image quality on remote-control robots.

  • Affective computing to help recognizing mistaken pedal-pressing during
           accidental braking
    • Abstract: Affective computing has been used to improve computer usability and user interface, by considering user’s emotion. One aspect of affective computing is emotion recognition. There have been many researches regarding emotion recognition, yet there is still room for exploration in applying affective computing into a driver assistance system. On driving assistance, one aspect is about emergency braking. Several researches have been analyzing emergency braking and proposed approaches to detect them. A more focused but significant (especially for elderly and beginner driver) case is mistakenly pressing accelerator instead of brake pedal during emergency braking, which often leads to accidents. This paper investigates researches on affective computing, affective sensors, emergency braking, and mistaken pedal pressing. It is also investigating on a possible approach to realize the objective of improving the existing driving assistance system using affective computing, on the case of mistaken pedal-pressing during emergency braking. For preliminary experiment, driving simulator’s brake pedal is manipulated to act as accelerator pedal during emergency braking, while observing driver’s change of expression, and measuring time approximation.

  • Study on interface for screen operation to reduce tiredness at practical
           training using ICT in elementary and secondary education
    • Abstract: In the practical training using ICT to learn the basics of industry in elementary and secondary education, it is difficult to operate the screen of the computer while working with both hands using the conventional interface device which operates while holding it in one hand. In response to these problems, we have designed and implemented a prototype of the interface for screen operation which is possible to wear on the back of the hand in our existing study. However, we have found out the problem which is accompanied by the feeling of physical and mental tiredness by becoming conscious of the conventional interface. In this paper, to solve these problems, we proposed and designed the new interface for screen operation that wears one hand and reduces the tiredness despite the use for a long time. Moreover, we conducted comparative evaluation with other interface devices on the reduction of tiredness to use the proposed interface for screen operation by the teachers of industrial education in high school. From the evaluation results, we showed that the proposed interface for screen operation has a high possibility of reducing tiredness in the practical training including work such as the manufacturing compared to other interface devices.

  • Bus stop setting problem based on cellular automaton traffic model
    • Abstract: Nowadays, traffic jam becomes a big problem for cities with large population. Bus is a main component of public transportation, and then the design of bus stop position and size should improve efficiency of public transportation. This research focuses on a certain bus stop between two intersections. The target of this research is to work out a best plan for the bus stop type, position and size. To solve the problem of bus stop setting, a mixed traffic flow model including buses, cars and trucks is established by CA (cellular automaton) model.

  • Three-dimensional dynamic bipedal walking based on passive dynamic walking
           mechanism using telescopic knee via phase oscillator with ground reaction
    • Abstract: This study aims to generate 3-D dynamic bipedal walking using two oscillators of a CPG approach based on its body dynamics. First, a 3-D biped, which inherited the aspect of the previous passive dynamic walker, was developed that contained flat feet with pressure sensors, ankle joints composed of ball joints surrounded by coil springs, telescopic knees, and actuated hip joints using a direct drive (DD) motor. The torso was controlled by the DD motors using a PD control scheme. Next, the Owaki–Ishiguro method was used with ground contact information in the phase oscillator to the knee joint. Finally, experimental tests were conducted to elucidate the effectiveness of the biped. A 3-D dynamic bipedal gait of RW06 was developed using knee oscillation based on the phase oscillator. Bipedal walking was excited only by the knee oscillation; therefore, the gait was strongly affected by the body dynamics.
