报告题目：Introduction to Fuzzy Logic & JSPS Activities
内容简介：The lecture is mainly for the graduate students majoring in intelligence control. Fuzzy logic is an extension of the computer logic, i.e., two-valued Boolean logic, and is the basis for the fuzzy control in the framework of intelligence control. After the brief survey of two-valued Boolean logic, the concept of 3 basic fuzzy logical operations are introduced, i.e., fuzzy negation, t-norm, and s-norm. The examples of each fuzzy logical operations are mentioned and their mathematical properties are discussed. Finally, (1-, min, max) is mentioned to be used as the most popular fuzzy logical operation system, and is shown that it constitutes a pseudo complemented distributive lattice, i.e., pseudo Boolean algebra. It is also introduced that how this (1- , min, max) system is used to the fuzzy inference operation in various, practical fuzzy control systems.
Then, as a director of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Beijing office, a brief introduction to various JSPS programs for the Chinese researchers’ convenience is presented.

报告题目：Motion Analysis of a Walking Assist Device to Human Manipulation
内容简介：A self-supporting walking aid device called Raku-WALK has been developed by Kikuchi Mfg., and this can reduce the amount of force needed to walk for the user. By adding electrical elements, an electric type of Raku-WALK has been also developed, which can reduce the burden on the foot. Even if there is no effort given from the foot, users who cannot walk by themselves can still move forward.
In this talk, we will present the relation between human maneuverability and the motion of the cart, non-electric 'Raku-WALK'. Some contact sensors for hands and pressure sensors for feet are used as human inputs, and 9-axis motion sensor and encoders are used to measure the motion of the cart as related outputs. The experimental results show that the acceleration of the machine becomes large by running and sudden rotation of the caster which worsens user's comfort, and when the acceleration gets bigger, the grip towards the handle got much more firm. We are going to derive a model from human action to the cart motion.
