Department of Electronic Control Engineering


Electronic Control Engineering

 Computer-installed and controlled technologies, including AI (artificial intelligence) and fuzzy control systems, are increasingly contributing to the development of safer, more comfortable, and user-friendly mechanical devices.
 Innovations, such as FA and CAD/CAM systems, numerical control machine tools, industrial robots, are effectively being used to assemble computer-assisted technologies.
 Mindful of this, the Department of Electronic Control Engineering seeks to nurture students to be highly skilled engineers familiar with mechanical, electronic, and information technology. To this end, the students are urged to learn and use computers and data/information processing techniques while working on how to control mechanical and electronic devices.
 The curriculum for upper classmen, for instance, offers courses covering various engineering fields, including applied electrical engineering, control engineering, mechanical engineering, electronic computers, and CAD/CAM. Skills will be acquired through experiments hands-on practice, and graduation thesis research.

Electronic Control Engineering

Cooperative control experiment using an intelligent robot system for education

A system that imitates a production line by FA is used. A vertical articulated robot places different parts on a conveyor belt and conducts a cooperative control experiment in which parts are sorted by a horizontal articulated robot having an image recognition function.


Device control by PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)

PLC programming is performed to control equipment that imitates production equipment.

Mini Robot Contest in Creative Design

About five students devise ideas, plan, design, and manufacture robots based on a given theme, and finally hold a robot contest to evaluate the performance of their robots.

Automatic measurement using a personal computer

Automatic measurement using a personal computer

By controlling the measuring device with a personal computer, it is possible to automatically set measurement conditions, measure, and process data.
