Mr. Seki INOUE (Student Member)
He received the B.E. degree in Information Physics from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan in 2013 and is currently working toward the M.E. degree at the University of Tokyo. His main research interests include ultrasonic and electromagnetic phased array synthesis and its application to human computer interfaces.
受賞論文「Producing Airborne Ultrasonic 3D Tactile Image by Time Reversal Field Rendering」
A method to render ultrasound pressure distribution in an inhomogeneous field by surrounding phased array is proposed in this paper. Ultrasonic stationary radiation force can invoke tactile sensation for human skins but disturbance of an acoustic wave field by user's hand was the problem. The proposed method renders the pressure field and reconstructs it with considering obstacles explicitly by finite element method and time reversal method. This method can be applied to inhomogeneous field with the presence of fingers or palms and can create complicated images.
Prof. Guang-Ren DUAN (Member)
He received his BSc. degree in Applied Mathematics, and both his MSc and PhD degrees in Control Systems Theory. From 1989 to 1991, he was a post-doctoral researcher at Harbin Institute of Technology, where he became full professor of control systems theory in 1991. He is the founder and currently the Director of the Center for Control Theory and Guidance Technology at Harbin Institute of Technology. Prof. Duan visited the University of Hull, UK, and the University of Sheffield, UK from December 1996 to October 1998, and worked as lecturer at the Queen's University of Belfast, UK from October 1998 to October 2002.
He won the 4th Chinese National Youth Award of Science and Technology in 1994, and the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars by NSFC (Natural Science Foundation of China) in 1999. In August 2000 he was selected by the Cheung Kong Scholars Program of the Chinese government, and in 2001 he became Fellow of IEE (IET) and an IET Chartered Engineer. His main research interests include parametric robust control systems design, LMI-based control systems, descriptor systems, spacecraft control and magnetic bearing control. He is the author and co-author of 5 books and over 260 SCI indexed publications. Particularly, he has published two books with CRC, Taylor & Francis Group, and one with Springer, and has also published over 50 papers in IEEE Transactions.
受賞論文「Parametric Solutions to Rectangular High-order Sylvester Equations—Case of F Jordan」
In an recent paper, we have proposed a general complete parametric solution in a simple and neat analytical closed form to a type of rectangular high-order Sylvester matrix equations with the parameter matrix F being an arbitrary matrix. Based on this result, in this paper we are presenting, for a type of rectangular high-order Sylvester matrix equations with the parameter matrix F being in a Jordan matrix form, a complete parametric solution which is expressed in terms of a free parameter matrix Z representing the degrees of freedom. The primary feature of this solution is that the matrix F, together with the parameter matrix R, does not need to be even known a priori, and thus may be set undetermined and used as degrees of freedom beyond the completely free parameter matrix Z. The results provide great convenience to the computation and analysis of the solutions to this class of equations, and can perform important functions in many control systems analysis and design problems involving high-order dynamical systems.
