Human science covers a wide range of fields and many kinds of sensors are used in the area. The application field for the sensor will also expand in future. A research committee of Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan for the field was constituted in 2006. The name is "Research committee of sensing technology on human science." This study was summarized on June 2009 due to the committee members. Sensing technology on human science field is divided into three fields, namely "health technology," "medical technology" and "assistive technology." The three fields are summarized from the sides of "sensorium" and "body." A portion of the physical sensors related with human science is also investigated in this study. As the result, the main goal of investigation and development in this field is to create an emulating robot for human, the robot can emulate human five senses, and also to build up the transmission technology of the five sense information. The technology is called "Five-sense communication." It is necessary to construct the technology that information obtained from human five-senses can be transmitted to a remote location. Various kinds of the applications are available according to the transmitting technology for the information felt by humans. It becomes obvious that the fusion between sensor, robot and transmission technology is the major theme for the next generation. Copyright © 2011 American Scientific Publishers. Source

Alcohol concentration in the expiration of a subjective person after drinking was examined. Beer, Japanese sake, red wine and shochu were adopted as the alcoholic subjects. The sensor outputs after 1 hour and 2 hours of drinking were adopted in the technique. The concentration grade was indicated using three metal-oxide odor sensors. It became obvious that the alcoholic component in the expiration could remain over 3 hours after drinking. Japanese elderly people mostly prefer beer and sake according to a questionnaire survey which was carried out for the aged, and the number of people was 68. The survey was carried out by a mail correspondence method. The number of males was 37 and the female number was 31. Many persons who received the questionnaire preferred beer and sake to whiskey and wine. In this study, the sensor-output characteristic as a function of passage of time after drinking sake was investigated and the suitable amount could be indicated by a developed technique. This means an amount of alcohol from which the subject feels refreshment of mind and body. In the questionnaire, it became obvious that 61% of aged men habitually drunk and 18% of females drunk. Women also preferred wine, plum liquor and shochu cocktails. This system was developed to survey the aged life style and identify whether they drunk moderately or not. And it can be also applicable to health monitoring for the elderly person. © 2011 WIT Press. Source

Plants have various kinds of functions. One of them is a purifying function to gaseous contaminants including carbon dioxide. It is a noticeable function from the standpoint of protection of the global environment. Plants can purify not only carbon dioxide but also nitrogen oxide and sulfur oxide, and the chemicals are used as a source of energy after having been broken down in the plants. In addition, plants put out a bioelectric potential which changes depending on the environment and growing conditions. In this study, the relationship between the potential and purification capability of a plant is examined using an LED lighting system. Broccoli is adopted as a subjective plant and the experiment is carried out with five kinds of LED light frequencies including darkness. The summation value is adopted as the potential value, namely the total amount of the bioelectric potential for a minute (vm1). As a result, the capability increases and the potential also becomes greater in blue light. A positive correlation is recognized in the relationship between the potential and the capability. A specific gaseous chemical could be purified in a particular light-frequency by applying the results of this study. © 2013 WIT Press. Source

Some prefectural governments introduce a prefectural original tax̶the forest tax̶to preserve a high common value of forests. On the basis of this point, this paper analyzes the prefectural forest tax as an example of environmental policies. According to the analysis, in the prefectures where the forest tax is levied, the main purpose for the introduction of the tax is considered to be the importance of the symbolic value of cooperation among citizens for preservation of the forest, rather than the prefectural government’s financial support to preserve the prefectural forest area. As a result, the reason for the introduction of a tax does not burden citizens with total responsibility for the deterioration of the forest environment caused by economic activity, the “Polluter Pays Principle”. Instead it includes both the effect of the announcement of protection of the forest on the society and the purpose of awareness-raising activities for the forest, based on assumptions that protection of the forest increases the social benefits for the population as a whole. © 2015, Japan Section of the Regional Science Association International.
