Hyper Human Vision and Its Applications
Most of the conventional image recognition technologies involving video signals (NTSC 30fps) are designed based on the characteristics of the human eye. Similarly, the processing speed is limited to the same or a lower level as compared to the human eye. In various application fields, there is a growing demand for image-processing technology, which facilitates the real-time recognition of high-speed phenomena that cannot be recognized by the human eye.
In this presentation, we introduce a high-speed vision system as one of hyper human technologies for real-time video processing and recording at a high-speed frame rate such as 1000 fps. The core technology of the ultra fast hyper human technology initiative is introduced together with the applications of this system in the fields of robotic control, multimedia, biomedicine, etc.

Towards Unified Design Methodology for Assurance Networks and Its Application to Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Assurance in autonomous decentralized networks is defined as capability of guaranteeing functional and nonfunctional system properties such as dependability, security, timeliness and adaptivity to heterogeneous and changing requirements. Technologies supporting assurance including integration of various technologies such as real time, fault tolerance, autonomy, mobility and intelligence will have to be incorporated in complex autonomous decentralized networks. This keynote speech will introduce the concept of assurance networks and show a framework of the unified design methodology for assurance networks and its application to mobile ad hoc networks. As a case sudy, a methodology for real-time self-organizing autonomous clustering in mobile ad hoc networks is explained.
