Introduction to Courses

Driver assistance sensing technologies


Comprehensive Practicum


Intensive course of two-week period (from latter half of August to former half of September)


Prof. Matsunami (Univ. of Kitakyushu)


Students study the concept of applied measurement engineering, sensors, their structures and interfaces, and signal processing. Especially, a systematic study is carried out by the use of various sensors: radar, laser radar, infrared cameras, optical sensors and imaging sensors, which play a central role in intelligent cars and robots. Also, they can construct high performance and functionality sensor fusion systems with an FPGA and a signal processor. On the final day, a competition evaluating their achievements is held using the developed driver assistance sensor systems.
