Current research issues@iPDFj
Our laboratory carries out applied research following the motto of Realizing next-generation computing environments through research and development of systems supporting human activities under the theme of realizing support systems for manufacturing, information & seeking lost objects, and living & elderly people, etc. We design and implement new systems focusing on these goals.
- Main research field
We are engaged in a wide range of research fields related to manufacturing, information & seeking, and living & elderly people. For example, design & manufacturing process integration support for NC machine processing, network management support, support for seeking books & movies in information space (digital library), and support for seeking lost objects in real space.
Currently, we are carrying out research on context awareness support utilizing sound, and communication formation support via cooking ingredients.
Common keywords in this research are database, information search, information visualization, information filtering, web information processing (Semantic Web), ubiquitous, and aware technologies.
- Research facilities
Basic computing environment (Apple & Windows PCs), Presentation equipment, Audio-video (AV) equipment, Special equipment (moving light system, laser measuring equipment, 3D ultrasonic position measuring device, ad hock wireless sensor network equipment, passive & active-type RFID), Awareness laboratory-AwareRium (sharing with the Kunifuji Laboratory, the Fujinami Laboratory, and the Center for Knowledge Science)
