■ Biography

Dr. Harumi Watanabe received Doctor of Engineering from School of Computing, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan. She is currently a full professor and the Head of Department of Embedded Software (2014-), Tokai University. Her research interests are mainly in the areas of IoT, cyber-physical, and embedded system developments methods and their education. She is a chair of the Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems (SIG-EMB), Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) (2016-). She has organized and managed several robot contests since 2004. Her students have participated in many robot contests and have received awards every year. She was the chair of the board of NHK robot contest, Tokai region (2006). NHK robot contest is broadcasting in NHK and is the most major contest related to robot developments. In inter-high school championships on electronics manufacturing Japan, she was the chair of the board of the award of Ministers of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (2007), and the chair of the board of the award of Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Japan (2018). She is a steering committee of Asia Pacific Conference on Robot IoT System Development and Platform (APRIS) (2018-). This conference organizes a robot contest for providing education of IoT system development.

■Interested Field

Object-Oriented Modeling, Context-Oriented Programming, Programming and Simulation; Real-Time System Development; Petri-Nets; Software Product Line; Computer Education by Robot Development

■Research Theme

1. IoT System Development methodology

Towards the digital transformation era, we challenge the work to clarify how to develop IoT systems.

2. IoT Education

For IoT education, we have been organizing ESS-RC(Embedded System Symposium – Robot Challenge) since 2004. Currently, ESS-RC is supported by enPiT and SIG-EMB. Since 2012, ESS-RC has been supported by enPiT which has been promoted by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. Since 2004, Embedded System Symposium has been organized by the Special Interest Group on Embedded systems within the Information Processing Society of Japan.
