Assoc. Prof. Ohya won the educational contribution commendation in 2010 fiscal year, since he did a large contribution to the education in informatics and the information sciences as a research course teacher in 2009 fiscal year.
In this year, Tsukuba challenge was held at the central of the Tsukuba city in November. 65 team participated in this challenge, and five robots ran the whole distance and achieved the challenge. Assoc. Prof. Ohya with Fuji soft team is one of them.
Prof. Yuta won the Japanese robot society science lecture meeting in September. He served chairman for ten years from the foundation of the symposia.
This prize is established to become a pioneer because of the activity in robotics and the intellectual system field, and to praise Prof. Harashima of the IROS conference. IROS is abbreviation of "Intelligent Robots and Systems" and it is one of the largest international conferences in the field of the robot in the world.
A performance, applied possibility and the impact to industry of the SOKUIKI sensor series developed with cooperating in Hokuyo Electric Machinery were evaluated.
It was appraised that the writing that consisted of three work of "First robot creation design", "Robot creation design to know here" and "If it was this, design the robot creation it was possible to do" had contributed to the understanding improvement of people interested in robotics.
This research is receiving of the international rescue system research mechanism of the research consignment from the Fire and Disaster Management Agency with "Development of the up-to-date search capital machine parts group of hydraulic and air pressure " as the theme. And it develops the advanced capital machine parts group for the rescue inquiry that each laboratory of Osaka prefectural Technical College, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Okayama University, and Tsukuba University unites the study group and of each takes charge of.
It was evaluated to be engaged in the control of the mobile robot and the research of the planning, and to have contributed to the achievement of the navigation etc. that used the movement robot system and the sensor about the science achievement prize by this section. Moreover, the Robomec commendation was the one to the thesis that Dr. Takeuchi who had acquiring completed the doctor in this laboratory in March this year announced in the robotics symposia in March, 2007, and two authors of this thesis were commended.
It was appraised that the writing that consisted of three work of "First robot creation design", "Robot creation design to know here" and "If it was this, design the robot creation it was possible to do". As for these books, it was evaluated that there were a lot of textbook adoptions in the university and Technical College, it was being supported by a lot of robotics education person in charge, and specification as the reference book of creating the educational practice subject also had a lot of practicing characters as a winning reason.
The announcement, "High-speed scanning match that used making to the dimension for the environmental map generation for the mobile robot NDT three" in the robotics symposia 2006 was evaluated.
The won thesis is "Development of Autonomous Systems for Loading Operation by Wheel Loader" written by S.Sarata, N.Koyachi, T.Tsubouchi, H.Osumi, M.Kurisu and K.Sugawara
The practical use technology prize was given by "..measurement.. development of SOKUIKI sensor for the movement robot environment recognition" by Robotics Society of Japan. Prof. Yuta served as the project reader of a strategic, basic technology by the promotion of the small and medium-sized enterprise mechanism when developing. Mr. Kawada played a center role of the software development for this product.
