Main topic is Fuzzy theory and the machine learning system research for implement SoC. SoC is Integrated Circuit (IC)technology accumulating all components of a computer and other electronic systems for an IC chip. Normally, software programs are used, but SoC is a technology that implements electric circuits without using software programs or processors.Saving spaces, low power and high-speed calculation can be expected.
The soft computing is a research field the empirical knowledge processing like the human being, is based on Fuzzy theory. These are implemented a lots in industrial equipment. In the laboratory, the conventional theory and system is researched as a system toward SoC. The application to a more complicated system is expected.
Current research topics Multi-Agent System Intelligent Image Processing Intelligent Control System Robo Cup Soccer Simulation League AI system (Intelligent system/Soft computing system) Real-time image processing system Decision support system Soft Intelligent SoC
