Dr. Mitsuhiro Kamezaki from the Research Institute for Science and Engineering of Waseda University, Japan visited the Department of Mechanical Engineering on 24th May 2016 to give a special invited lecture for final year undergraduates on ‘Design of Intelligent Human-Machine Systems focusing on Human- Machine Interface’.
Dr. Mitsuhiro Kamezaki received BS, MS, and Doctor of Engineering degrees from Waseda University. He was a research associate in Department of Modern Mechanical Engineering and then an assistant professor in the Research Institute for Science and Engineering, Waseda University.
Design of human-machine interfaces is of utmost importance because it largely affects the performance of human-machine systems. The presentation well explained various types of human machine-interface systems in different fields, ways of modelling human-machine systems and methodologies of recognition, learning, and adaptation. Depth of experience through years of research and specialized knowledge of Dr. Kamezaki induced enthusiasm in undergraduates towards Human-Machine Systems making the day intellectually very effective.
UoM alumnus Mr. Udara Manawadu, who is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Sugano lab, Waseda University coordinated the visit to establish an academic collaboration between two universities in near future.
