2. Vision Sensing for Human Assistive Systems

Prof. Sota SHIMIZU,

Prof. Satoshi KOMADA,,

Prof. Toshiyuki MURAKAMI,

Prof. Hiroshi IGARASHI,

This session focuses on recent vision sensing (such as image processing) for human assistive system.  As well-known, a recent drastic progress of computation power is extending this traditional field of study towards remarkable applications.  For example, SLAM is one of representative applications, i.e., originally vision-based localization and vision-based mapping were independent.  New 3D data processing on a fusion between point clouds and photometric color information have also been supported by this progress.  In addition, a concept of super pixel has been introduced to studies on image processing due to the similar background.  This session would like authors to submit papers of such vision sensing fundamentals and applications for human assistive system filled with rich ideas and originalities.  We would like to give audience an opportunity to introduce and discuss new trends of vision-based sensing and its applications for emerging system functions, mobility and robotics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1) Innovative Vision Sensing Instruments
2) Vision-based Assistive Control for Robotic Systems
3) Vision-based Human Assistive Applications/Devices
4) Vision Sensing using Point Cloud
5) Signal Processing for Vision Sensing
6) Human-Machine Interactions


3. Multi-physics models for energy conversion

Prof. Vincent Lanfranchi (LEC – UTC, FR),

Ass. Prof. Laurent Daniel (GEEPS – Supelec, FR),

Energy conversion in mechatronic is mainly based on electromechanical conversion but other physics are also involved in mechatronic systems.  This special session will examine a range of topics around models including several physics at material or system scale.

Applications and experimental validations of the following list are welcome, but not limited to: actuators, motors, sensors, energy harvesters, generators…
