A research group led by Associate Professor Maeda and Professor Iwasaki received the IEEJ Industry Applications Society Distinguished Transaction Paper Award for its paper published in the IEEJ Journal of Industry Applications (an English journal published by the Industry Applications Society, the Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan). This award was given to the authors of papers published in the journal in 2021 that have made a significant contribution to the academic sphere or technology related to industrial applications.
This paper relates to control technology that supports the high productivity and high-quality manufacturing and processing of industrial mechatronics. At present, control design is generally carried out manually by skilled engineers, requiring a great deal of time and effort. To address this issue, the paper proposes an autonomous parameter design that can achieve both high performance and dramatic control-design efficiency based on original technology called the cooperative optimization method. The paper describes the findings of research conducted at NITech project laboratory (Via Mechanics Advanced Motion System Laboratory). Some of the findings have been applied to the research and development process, contributing greatly to the creation of products that boast the world's top market share.
