Title Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems
Abstract With the rapid progress of industrialization and civilization, intelligent systems are drawing attention as a concept where every sensor, device, equipment, and machine can be effectively connected to realize comfortable social. It aims to improve both human life and environment smartly by the repetition of the process of sensing, data mining, and understanding. In all above, smart sensing and intelligent systems can give rise to a richer live with a wide variety of systems. This session widely welcomes the devices, methods and systems.

Title Bioinstrumentation, Affective Computing and Humanware Engineering
Abstract We have proposed a new research concept “BACH” (Bioinstrumentation, Affective Computing and Humanware Engineering) and organized a research group. Main purpose of our research group is to improve QOL using methods such as biological measurements, Kansei information processing and so on. In this session, we introduce our recent research activities, “Effects of listening to Ultrasonic Sounds with 1/f Fluctuation for the Autonomic Nervous Activity”, “Heart Rate Variability Analysis and the Subjective Evaluation by Visual Analog Scale for Subjects Listening 1/f Fluctuation Sounds”, “Research on Effect of Conversation with a Communication Robot” and “Development of an Unintended Needle Dislodgement Detection System Using Electrodes Without Contacting Blood”. As mentioned above, our research targets focus widely medical, affective and humanware fields.
