Title: Autonomous driving at 227 km/h without racing driver, KAIST team in 4th.

 

A self-driving car built by EE Professor Hyunchul Shim’s research team heated up the Las Vegas Motor Speedway at a speed of 227 km.

 

The team alone made an impression both at home and abroad by competing against the winning team in an international competition using the 5th stage of autonomous driving.

 

KAIST Team win and proceed semifinal game by passing ahead the Auburn university team from USA with 210 km/h speed. With narrow margin KAIST team failed by Polymove team (final match winner) from Italy.

 

This competition league is competed on 5th grade technology, the highest level of autonomous driving technology. Prof. Shim’s team displayed 225 km/h automotive driving technology, integrated technology of highly advanced control and navigation for racing.

 

The excellent movement by Professor Hyunchul Shim’s research team deeply moved KAIST spirit in many CES 2022 participants and promoted Korea’s future mobility technology to the world.

The 3rd unmanned automotive racing game is planned to be hold in September 2022 and CES next year.

EE Professor Seong-Ook, Park elected as the 24th president of The Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science (KIEES).

Founded in 1989, KIEES is celebrating its 33rd anniversary this year.

Currently having over 10,000 members, KIEES manages multiple specialized research groups including SCI international academic journals (JEES), Korean papers (registered journals), and academic journal ‘Electromagnetic Technology’.

It is one of the four major academic organizations in the field of communication technology.

 

The new president, Seong-Ook Park, is one of the top authorities in the field of artificial satellites, who recently served as the director of the KAIST Satellite Research Center, which plays the key role for Korean satellite launch projects such as NEXTSat-1.

In a media interview after taking office, he commented that “students who majored in international relations and business started to change majors to science” as the UAE recently succeeded in Mars exploration. “I think it should happen in Korea academia as well,” he said.

He remarked “I hope for your care and support for the KIEES society to gain more internationally prominent honor.”

 

With the new president, KIEES this tiger’s year is expected to make a black tiger’s leap forward.

 

Additionally, I would like to share his colum on 6G  Satellite by government project.

Title: KAIST Prof. Sung-Yool Choi recognized with the Prime Minister’s Commendation Award for Industrial Contribution in 2021

 

[Prof. Sung-Yool Choi]

 

KAIST EE Professor Sung-Yool Choi has received the Prime Minister’s Commendation Award for Industrial Contributions on material components/equipments. The commendation was given at the award ceremony for the Materials, Components, Equipments and Basic(Root) Industry Tech Inside Show which was held 13th ~ 15th Oct. at KINTEX in Ilsan. 

 

The Industrial Contribution Merit Award for Material Equipment is given to those who have contributed to the development and innovation of material components / equipments (abbreviated as MCE from here on), and have played a significant role in the establishment, implementation, and resolution of pending issues on fostering MCE policies. 

 

Appointed as the head of the technical advisor team from KAIST in 2019, Professor Sung-Yool Choi has been striving to establish the corporate support cooperation system and create policies to strengthen the industrial competitiveness of MCE. 

 

The technical advisor team, comprised of 155 faculty members of KAIST with Prof. Sung-Yool Choi as the leader, has been providing preemptive, omnidirectional, and full-cycle technical advice on technical difficulties faced by MCE corporations. The team was launched as the first advisory organization dedicated to industrial technology in Korea to provide a means of direct, active response small businesses affected by Japan’s export regulations and whitelist exclusion policies. Since its inception, the team has provided more than 100 advice sessions to 75 companies.

 

Prof. Sung-Yool Choi remarks “I consider this award not as a symbol of personal achievement, but rather a culmination of efforts made possible by various faculty and members of KAIST who have actively participated in the technical advisor team. I give my sincere thanks and make more efforts to help small Korean businesses to become industry-leading global companies,”

Prof. Yoon, Young-Gyu ‘s team from the School of Electrical Engineering has been selected as the recipient of the Young Scientist Award from the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI), 2021.

The Young Scientist Award is an award given to the most excellent paper published at the MICCAI conference, a renowned international academic conference in the field of medical image processing, written by a lead author who is either a student or within two years of receiving a doctorate. This is the first time in Korea to receive this award.

 

Changyeop Shin (current M.S. student) and Hyun Ryu (current B.S. student) are co-lead authors, and Eun-Seo Cho (current Ph.D. student) is co-author, the following paper won the award: “RLP-Net: A Recursive Light Propagation Network for 3-D Virtual Refocusing,” International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI), 2021.

This paper is about a virtual refocusing technique that restores a three-dimensional image using only two microscope images. The research has shown that accurate virtual refocusing is possible by approximating the light propagation function using a recursive neural network, paying attention to the fact that the light propagation process has spatial invariance.

The award ceremony was held at the 2021 MICCAI Conference, which was held virtually due to the COVID-19 situation. The list of winners will be permanently posted on the MICCAI conference website.

EE Prof. Seunghyup Yoo, wins the Merck Award at the 2021 International Meeting on Information Display (IMID 2021)

 

Professor Seunghyup Yoo of our EE Faculty was honored with the Merck Award at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) 2021 held at COEX, Seoul from August 25 to 27.

 

The Merck Awards have been given at IMID hosted by the Korean Information Display Society (KIDS) since 2004, the 100th anniversary of Merck’s liquid crystal research. To encourage innovative and excellent research and development in the display field, this award has been given to selected researchers with outstanding achievements in display technology.

 

Professor Seunghyup Yoo has achieved excellent research results with academic depth and industrial impact in the fields of displays and lighting devices based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) as well as flexible and wearable electronics. In particular, he conducted systematic research to achieve the ultimate efficiency of OLEDs, which includes the result such as bringing the efficiency of OLED to the level of state-of-the-art inorganic LEDs. Recently, he is pioneering a new field in which wearable IT, optical technology, and medical technology are converged to expand the application fields of OLEDs and organic electronic devices to healthcare. He has also been contributing to the international societies such as the Korea Information Display Society (KIDS) and the Optical Society of America (OSA) for advance and spread of display technologies. 

 

Meanwhile, Merck held an online meeting called Merck Science Connect in line with IMID 2021, and “The power of displaying, as an interface” can be viewed at the following link, in which Professor Seunghyup Yoo participated as a panel.
