Smart Science, Design & Technology represents the proceedings of the 5thInternational Conference on Applied System Innovation (ICASI 2019), which was held in Fukuoka, Japan, April 12-18, 2019. The conference received more than 1000 submitted papers from at least 20 different countries, whereby one third of these papers was selected by the committees and invited to present at ICASI 2019. The resulting book aims to provide an integrated communication platform for researchers active in a wide range of fields including information technology, communication science, applied mathematics, computer science, advanced material science, and engineering. Major breakthroughs are being made by interdisciplinary collaborations between science and engineering technologists in academia and industry within this unique international network. Smart Science has emerged as a separate discipline, involving innovative practices, methodologies and processes.

About the Editors

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 drone, 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. His team won the DARPA UAVForge competition in 2012, and he continues to lead teams to success in the annual IMechE UAS Challenge event. He is on the editorial board for the International Journal of Micro Air Vehicles & Unmanned Systems and has published widely on the subject. During the last few years he co-founded a Tethered UAS company developing a persistent stare capability.

Siu-Tsen Shen has studied widely, gaining her Masters degree in Industrial Design Research from the Design Academy of Eindhoven, and her PhD in Design from Goldsmiths College, University of London. She has been a visiting professor at UCL and Middlesex University, UK and is currently a Professor in Multimedia Design at the National Formosa University, Taiwan. Her research interests lie in the areas of HCI, User-Centred Design, Cross-Cultural Research, User Interface Design, and Design Team Formation using Personality Type. She has taught on a number of different programmes including Introduction to Multimedia Design, Creative Thinking & Design Methods, Cognitive Psychology and Emerging Technology. She is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cultural and Creative Industries Research (ISSN 2221-6170) since 2018. She leads a technical committee for Innovation in Design, Communication and Engineering (ICICE) since 2012 and International Conference on Applied System Innovation (ICASI) since 2015.

About the Series

Smart Science, Design & Technology

This is a series to bring together researchers from different fields of multidisciplinary investigation to find common ground to increase the dialogue among the Science, Design and Technology community.

The main goal of this series is to publish research papers in "Smart Science, Design & Technology". The ultimate aim is to discover new scientific knowledge relevant to IT-based intelligent electromechanical Systems, Mechanics and Design Innovations. We would like to invite investigators who are interested in mechatronics and information technology and contribute their original research articles to these books.

Mechatronics and Information Technologies are both academic and practical engineering fields that involve mechanical technological materialization through scientific principles and Information Technology. Technological innovation by mechanical engineering includes IT-based intelligent mechanical systems, mechanics and design innovations. IT-based intelligent mechanical systems, which implant intelligence to machine systems, are in an interdisciplinary area combining conventional mechanical technology and new information technology.

Aeronautics, Advanced Material Science & Engineering, Communication Science & Engineering, Computer Science & Information Technology, Computational Science & Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mechanical & Automation Engineering, Green Technology & Architecture Engineering, Innovation Design & Creative Design, Industrial Design & Design Theory, Cultural & Creative Research, Applied Mathematics, Internet & IOT technology, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Human-Computer Inteaction, User Experience and Usability, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
