Improvement of the work efficiency is demanded by aging and reducing of the working population in the construction field, so that some automation technologies are applied to construction equipment, such as bulldozers and excavators. However, not only the automation technologies but also expert skills...

In the construction field, the improvement of the work efficiency is one of important problems. However, the work efficiency using construction equipment depends on their operation skills. Thus, in order to increase the work efficiency, the operation skill is required to be quantitatively evaluated....

In this study, the aim is to construct a "teacher-student model" for optimal skill acquisition. To support the optimal skill acquisition, modeling and estimation of an individual learning process are very important. The first-order system with time delay is introduced as an individual learning process...

Several studies have proposed a concept called "informational narratology" or "information narratology." In this paper, we integrate narratological studies, including narratology and various literary theories, into information technologies, such as artificial intelligence and cognitive science, in order...

In this paper, we present our modification experience of making a UAV watertight and floatable. Then we present several experiments on taking pictures considering ocean monitoring in the sea near our campus. The watertight experiments are done from our school’s pier. In these experiments, we repeated...

A piston finger technique (PFT) was developed for restoring the motor function of chronic plegic fingers, with good treatment outcomes, including reduced spasticity and improved muscle shortening. Before developing a piston finger device (PFD) simulating the PFT, we analyzed the PFT by using a motion...

RoboCup is a competition designed to promote the research related to Artificial Intelligence (AI). We have also organized a RoboCup soccer team "Hibikino-Musashi" and work on one of AI research topics, co-operated behavior control system using multiple autonomous mobile robots. In order to realize co-operated...

Enhancing efficiency is a critical objective of corporate management. While numerous approaches to measure efficiency have been devised, this manuscript suggests a new method referred to as dynamic network-based Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) as a more advanced procedure for examining transaction priorities...
