Advanced Integrated Sensing Technologies

Research Supervisor
Kiyoshi Itao
Professor, Tokyo University of Science
Year Started


This research area concerns the fast and accurate detection of dangers and threats which can jeopardize safety and peace in society, such as natural disasters and human-induced effects, as well as the creation of integrated sensing technology which can promptly communicate such information. Specifically, emphasis is placed on sensing dangerous objects and harmful substances, deterioration and abnormalities in buildings, bridges and other artificial structures, the vital signs of humans, and so on. In addition, this research also targets novel highly sensitive, wireless and small-scale sensor technologies for examining artificial and natural environments, network technologies which can ensure the transmission of data even when there are abnormalities or damages in the network, and information processing technologies which can sense, locate and respond to abnormalities by interpreting various types of data provided by sensors. Finally, this field also includes technologies which can dramatically improve the sensitivity, resolution and selectivity of sensing by combining individual elemental technologies, sensing network systems which can yield breakthroughs in information processing and network technologies, and technologies related to the realization of integrated systems.
