Inspecting mud on surfaces in product manufacturing: Impact of dust on inspection surfaces on the accuracy of visible inspection
To produce high-quality merchandise to the market, visible inspection by human senses is carried out in lots of manufacturing industries. It’s typically really useful that visible inspection for a high-quality product be carried out in a clear room.

Polymer-based optical fiber for visualization of stress
Fiber-optic pressure sensing is understood for its capacity to watch giant areas. Nevertheless, most sorts of fiber-optic pressure sensors require spectrum evaluation devices, which drastically will increase the general value of sensor techniques. In distinction, fiber-optic pressure sensors akin to Bragg-grating or Brillouin optical time area reflectometers, have dependable constructions which are commercially accessible. Nevertheless, they don’t seem to be broadly used to help employees in high-risk development websites.

Algorithms for enhancing safety of IoT industrial management techniques
Kenji Sawada is utilizing his experience in management engineering to develop algorithms for freely transferring objects for functions together with vehicles, robots, and safety and vitality, utilizing mathematical idea for optimization and sign processing.

Sakura Science Plan Visiting College students Pay a Courtesy Go to to Mr. Hagiuda Koichi, the Minister of Training, Tradition, Sports activities, Science and Expertise (MEXT) throughout Their UEC Go to
With the implementation of the Sakura Science Plan supported by the Japan Science and Expertise Company, a bunch of ten visiting college students and one supervisor from King Mongkut’s College of Expertise North Bangkok (KMUTNB) in Thailand, one in every of our prestigious associate universities, was invited to our campus for 7 days between October 20 and October 26 to conduct analysis exchanges, tour laboratories, interact in scholar interplay, give a presentation on the symposium, and discover the Japanese tradition.
UEC holds The first ECTI – UEC Workshop and The sixth UEC Seminar in ASEAN, 2019
On September 6-7, 2019, “The first ECTI – UEC Workshop on AI and Purposes” (Sep 6) and “The sixth UEC Seminar in ASEAN, 2019” (Sep 7) befell at Rajamangala College of Expertise Krungthep in Bangkok, Thailand. Eminent researchers, government officers and staffs of UEC associate universities, governmental companies and business from Thailand and different ASEAN international locations got here collectively for the workshop and the seminar.
UEC indicators normal settlement with Nationwide Taipei College
As of 7 August, 2019, the College of Electro-Communications (UEC) has singed normal settlement with Nationwide Taipei College, Taiwan, to advertise additional worldwide collaboration between the 2 universities.
third Worldwide Union of Radio Science, Japan Radio Science Assembly 2019 (URSI) held at UEC Tokyo
The third Worldwide Union of Radio Science, Japan Radio Science Assembly 2019 (URSI) was held on the College of Electro-Communications campus from 5-6 September 2019. This convention will additional revitalize Japan’s URSI-related actions underneath URSI, a world group that actively engages in actions to contribute to the event of radio science, and can encourage younger researchers to taken an curiosity in radio science. The variety of registered registrants was ~ 200, and lots of papers have been offered. Prof. Yagitani (URSI-JRSM 2019 Convention Chair), Prof. Shibata (President, IEICE Electronics Society), Prof. Ando (President, URSI), and President Fukuda (President of the College of Electro-Communications) and others gave opening speeches.
Irago Convention 2019 is held at UEC campus
The Irago Convention 2019 was held on 29 October 2019 on the UEC Tokyo campus. The convention was organized by College of Electro-Communications, Toyohashi College of Expertise, and Tokai College. This was ninth on this sequence of conferences offering a platform for networking between scientists, graduate college students, and coverage makers to work together and share concepts to seek out options for some the most important problems with the 21st century.
In regards to the College of Electro-Communications
The College of Electro-Communications (UEC) in Tokyo is a small, luminous college on the forefront of pure and utilized sciences, engineering, and know-how analysis. Its roots return to the Technical Institute for Wi-fi Commutations, which was established in 1918 by the Wi-fi Affiliation to coach so-called wi-fi engineers in maritime communications in response to the Titanic catastrophe in 1912. In 1949, the UEC was established as a nationwide college by the Japanese Ministry of Training and moved in 1957 from Meguro to its present Chofu campus Tokyo.
With roughly four,000 college students and 350 school members, UEC is thought to be a small college, however with experience in wi-fi communications, laser science, robotics, informatics, and materials science, to call only a few areas of analysis.
The UEC was chosen for the Ministry of Training, Tradition, Sports activities, Science and Expertise (MEXT) Program for Selling the Enhancement of Analysis Universities on account of its strengths in three foremost areas: optics and photonics analysis, the place we’re primary for the variety of joint publications with international researchers; wi-fi communications, which displays our roots; and materials-based analysis, significantly on gasoline cells.
