/Class Outline
This lecture will be divided into two main parts.
[1] Model-based development (MBD) in the application of control technology to products.
[2] Basic concepts and industrial applications of artificial intelligence. 
Class Schedule [1] (7.5 frames)
Although the automotive industry is increasingly trying to develop in line with the MBSE (Model-Based Systems Engineering) approach, the more mature components are lagging behind when it comes to the introduction of control technology. On the other hand, as with other products such as smartphones, upgrading the control technology that forms the backbone is considered essential to improve performance through software upgrades.
In this lecture.
(1) Problems in the introduction of control technology into vehicle development.
(2) 'Functional distribution' utilised to overcome this.
(3) Examples of improved control technology.
The lecture will cover the following topics.
[2] (7.5 frames)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a discipline that is currently advancing at an ever-increasing pace. Although today's computers have very high processing speeds, they are not as flexible as humans. Artificial Intelligence aims to turn them into "great wits". One of the directions in this direction is to realize computers that can recognise and understand events in the external world, understand natural language and respond to them, just like humans, without the need to create computers and program that can respond flexibly.
The aim of this lecture is to introduce the basic concepts of artificial intelligence, pattern understanding systems and problem solving systems for the realization of intelligent robots, with the aim of acquiring basic knowledge of the fundamentals of neurocomputers and the realization of autonomous driving of cars and intelligent robots.

Evaluation is mainly based on reports.
