Ryogo Kubo received his B.E. degree in system design engineering and his M.E. and Ph.D. degrees in integrated design engineering from Keio University, Japan, in 2005, 2007 and 2009, respectively. In 2007, he joined the NTT Access Network Service Systems Laboratories, NTT Corporation, Japan. Since 2010, he has been with Keio University, Japan, where he is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. His research interests include system control, optical communications, networking, sensor-actuator networks, smart grid and mechatronics.
Dr. Kubo is a Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Optical Society (OSA), the Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan (IEEJ), the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), and the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE). He received the Best Paper Award from the IEICE Communications Society in 2011, the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC ’12) Best Paper Award in 2012, and the Leonard G. Abraham Prize from the IEEE Communications Society in 2013.
Integrated Communications and Control Technologies for Smart Infrastructure and Applications
Smart infrastructure integrating currently independent systems has a great potential to improve our quality of life (QoL). Smart applications on the smart infrastructure will provide emerging services over the Internet. The smart infrastructure and applications include the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, networked control systems (NCS), and cyber-physical systems (CPS). In the development towards the smart infrastructure and applications, we must consider how to manage the quality of services (QoS) of networks, diversity, interoperability, energy efficiency, and cybersecurity as system-level requirements. The integration of communications and control technologies can play an important role in guaranteeing the various requirements. This talk introduces our ongoing research relating to integrated communications and control technologies, and discuss future Internet services provided by the smart infrastructure and applications from the viewpoints of both communications engineering and control engineering.
