Wildlife Detection System

The device is installed in a field where a black bear is likely to appear, and the AI recognizes whether it is a black bear or not. If it determines that it is a black bear, the device uses strong lights and sirens to scare it away, and sends out information about its appearance via e-mail. The project aims for coexistence between nature and the community.

Automatic ECG measurement when bathing

Automatically conducts an electrocardiogram test when bathing, detecting in real time abnormalities that can lead to cardiac problems such as myocardial infarction and arrhythmia. The system aims to prevent sudden death during bathing and to properly manage health conditions.

Bridge Inspection Testing Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Utilizing the Fukushima Robot Test Field test bridges, the cameras mounted on unmanned aerial vehicles will read scratches and cracks placed for testing purposes. This will improve the efficiency and quality of infrastructure maintenance and management operations.

Robot Technology Exercise for Young Human Resources, Python Programming Exercise

Robot Technology Exercise for Young Human Resources was held at Fukushima Robot Test Field, attended by 15 students and pupils from Odaka Industrial Technology High School and Techno Academy Hama. Explanation of the robot simulator (Choreonoid), exercise of robot operation techniques on the simulator, and operation training using actual robots were conducted. In addition, UAV operation training using the Standard Test Methods for sUAS (STM) was conducted at an airfield with a buffer net. We train young engineers and contribute to the SDGs through the development of technology.

IT Career Development School for Women

The "Women Programmer Training School" (2017-2019) and "IT Career Upgrade School for Women" (2020-) are held as IT (information technology) education courses for working women. Recurrent education is provided for women who are currently unemployed, working as non-regular employees, or seeking re-employment after retirement due to childbirth or childcare, etc. After completing the course, the program supports employment in high-value-added digital work while adapting to each individual's life stage, such as employment at companies in the prefecture, starting a business, or working at home. The program promotes women's activities and contributes to Goal 5 of the SDGs in particular.

Cyber Security Human Resource Development

To develop professional personnel who can respond to information security threats, we offer "Cyber Attack Countermeasure Exercise Course - Practical Security Training to Learn from 'Attack Methods'". This is one of the most sought-after technologies both domestically and internationally for stable, safe and secure ICT utilization.

Off-grid energy storage solar carport demonstration study

(A new demonstration test of a completely off-grid solar carport equipped with storage batteries, conducted through an industry-academia collaboration between the Aizu Institute of Computer Science, Vampu Japan Inc. and the University of Aizu Public University Corporation. The results of this joint demonstration test will be installed and deployed mainly in Aizu Wakamatsu City as a module that connects distributed power sources, mainly renewable energy, and electric mobility.

Creativity Development Program and Creativity Development Studio

As part of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's "Project for the Formation of Information Technology Human Resource Development Centers to Support Growing Fields (enPiT)," a one-year learning program is conducted in collaboration with various companies and local governments to hone creativity through system development based on design thinking. Students learn about the real world by working on actual projects involving industry-government-academia collaboration.
