Textbook  
Pre-requirement  
Course Description At the beginning of this class, they learn how to make and describe optimum algorithms using PAD(Problem Analysis Diagram). Their final goal is to make good programs based on these algorithms. For this purpose they study syntax of C language, data expression, function, how to input and output, data structure, and so on. After the brief lecture (in Japanese), in which the topics in each lesson are explained, they do some exercises according to the instruction on the home page using the UNIX Workstation(SUN Solaris 2.6).
Some home task(reports) are set after every lesson. Two midterm and the final examinations are given.

Since the brief lecture is only in Japanese, we gave the special explanation in English for four Chinese students. A Chinese tutor translated the contents of home pages into Chinese, and took care them during the class.

Course Description The lecture MECHATRONICS has been focused on computer control of an autonomous mobile robot. Its content has been half theoretical, half practical. In the theoretical part of the lecture, Bang-Bang control theory for non-holonomic robotic system applied to two-driven-wheel mobile-robot has been reviewed. Also theory relating to microcontrollers, rotary encoders, DC servo drives has been outlined. In the practical part of the lecture, the real small-size mobile robot has been built by students in the department's workshop and the Bang-Bang control has been applied. Finally, the achieved practical results have been compared to the results obtained by computer simulation using MATLAB. The students also took part in a robotic competition organized by the department.

Course Description Speech recognition by machine, which has long been a dream of the human being, is now becoming a reality. Owing to the development of statistical recognition techniques and large speech databases, as well as the advancement of computer technology, the last two decades witnessed a dramatic progress in the field. The aim of this lecture is to give beginners basic ideas of fundamental techniques which have made such innovation possible. 
After introductory remarks on speech technology and the history of speech recognition, the main body of the lecture started with section ``Acoustical Properties of Speech Signal'', where explanations were given how speech signals are produced in the vocal organ, and how the vocal tract shape gives influences on the properties of speech signals. In the next section ``Speech Analysis'', various spectral analysis methods were introduced, which allow us to extract from the speech signal important acoustic features for speech recognition. The next section was devoted to ``Dynamic Time Warping'', which enables non-linear time alignment of speech patterns produced with different speaking rates. Its historical importance together with limitations were explanined. This was followed by section ``Principle of Statistical Speech Recognition'', where the importance of statistical techniques was emphasized and the Bayes decision rule was explained. Also, the concepts of acoustic model and language model were introduced. In the next section ``Hidden Markov Models'', the definition of hidden Markov models (HMMs) were given, and key problems on HMMs were stated. Then came section ``Statistical Language Models'', where the role of a language model in HMM-based speech recognition was explained, and the use of N-gram language models was 
introduced. In the last section ``Continuous Speech Recogniton by HMMs'', the students learned how hidden Markov models and statistical 
language models are applied to speech recognition, with a demonstration of a speech dictation system that runs on a personal computer. Students tried how their Japanese speech was recognized or misrecognized by the system. The lecture was based on a handoutprepared specially for this course. One week before the lecture finished, the enrolled students were given an assignment to write a paper on the following problems. Two weeks were allowed before submission. 

1. What acoustic features are used for speech recognition? How are they related to the vocal tract shape? 2. What is dynamic time warping (DTW)? Why is it important in the history of speech recognition technology? 3. What are hidden Markov models (HMMs)? How are they applied to speech recognition? 4. What role does a language model play in HMM-based continuous speech recognition? What kind of language models are generally used in the state-of-the-art speech recognition technology?

Course Description Fundamentals of electromagnetic waves were taught in this semester. 

Initially, Maxwell's equations were taught, but the main emphasis was placed on the complete understanding of the physical meaning of araday's law, Ampere's law and others. Then, we moved on to the general description of energy and power, boundary conditions, and finally we reached the wave equations. Important characteristics of the plane waves were stressed. Then, we move on to the "Reflection and Refraction" at the boundary of two media especially for TM and TE incidence. The meaning of TM and TE is strongly focus attention for the key study. Finally, we move on to the wave polarization, (linear, circular, elliptical), and Poynting vector in order to estimate the energy power flow. 

 Every week a few homework is given to each student.
