The 2015 International Conference on Applied System Innovation (ICASI 2015) was held May 22-27, 2015 in Osaka, Japan and provided a unified communication platform for researchers active in a wide range of research fields. Professionals from industry, academia and government were encouraged to discourse on research and development, professional practice, business and management in the information, innovation, communication and engineering fields.

This conference enabled interdisciplinary collaboration between science and engineering technologists in the academic and industry fields as well as networking internationally. The conference received 1063 submitted papers, whereby 421 papers were selected by the committees to be presented at the ICASI 2015 conference. These papers were divided into 13 Regular Sessions and 13 Invited Sessions, and presented in several parallel sessions. The ICASI 2015 committees selected 226 excellent papers for publication in this proceedings volume, covering topics ranging from information technology, innovation design, communication science and engineering, industrial design, creative design, applied mathematics, computer science, design theory and cultural and creative research to electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical and automation engineering, green technology and architecture engineering and material science, among others.

He was the chairman of the Department of Electronic Engineering from 2005 to 2011 in National Formosa University, Yunlin, Taiwan. He got the excellent research award of National Formosa University in 2008 and 2014. Currently, he is a professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering, National Formosa University, Yunlin, Taiwan. Since 2011, he is the president of Taiwanese Institute of Knowledge Innovation. He has published more than 100 SCI and EI papers in recent years.

Dr. Stephen D. Prior has been working in the area of Field Robotics for the past 25 years. His research interest in autonomous systems relates to a shortlisted entry to the MoD Grand Challenge event in August 2008, where he led a team to design, make and test a novel unmanned aerial vehicle, which consisted of a patented Y6 arrangement. On the basis of this, he founded the Autonomous Systems Lab and has been researching with a small team of staff/students working on defence-related robotic technologies. He is on the editorial board for the International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles and has published widely on the subject. Recent work involved the design and development of a series of Nanotechnology platforms, which were demonstrated and flownat the DSEi exhibition at the Excel Centre in London (September 2011), as well as developing the winning entry to the DARPA UAVForge challenge 2012. During the last year he has been building a Tethered UAS solution for persistent stare capability.
