About Satoshi Takahashi

S.Takahashi Satoshi Takahshi, Ph.D
Associate Professor, Hiroshima City University 3-4-1 Ozuka-Higashi, Asa-Minami, Hiroshima 731-3194 Japan

Profile

I am interested in radiowave applications such as wireless communications and radar systems, and conducting related experiments and computer simulations. Wireless communications are familiar to us as smartphones, but here it refers to data transmission in free space. So far, I have been engaged in research on radio propagation analysis methods, inter-vehicle communication methods, signal processing methods for high-speed mobile wireless, and methods for detecting weak radio waves. I would like to achieve results conducting research on both practice and theory.

Short Biography

  • July 1999-March 2002 Hitachi, Ltd., Japan.
  • Apr. 1997-June 1999 Researcher, YRP Mobile Communications Key Technology Research Laboratory, Co., Ltd., Japan.
  • Apr. 1992-Apr. 1997 Engineer, Hitachi, Ltd., Japan.

Research Activity

  • I have proposed the “Evaluation Point Culling Method” that calculates radio wave propagation in a shorter time and the “Random Phase Ray Tracing” that calculates radio wave propagation more precisely. I implemented these proposed methods using the programming language C++ and put it into practical use for cell designing tool of indicating optimum locations of base stations. The achievements were published in the Nikkan Kogyo Newspaper on October 14, 1994.
  • While in YRP Key Tech Labs, we developed a delay profile measurement equipment that precisely measures the space in which radiowaves travel. It had a 100-MHz bandwidth in the 3 GHz, 8 GHz, and 16 GHz bands. We obtained radio experiment station license from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, and conducted experiments in the Tokyo areas. The results were the world’s first delay profile (radiowave path) that propagates over 1 km (September 1998). The proposed radiowave propagation models based on these measurements were approved as a revised proposal of the international standard recommendation ITU-R P.1411 (Method of estimating radio wave propagation). While in National Institute of Communication Technology, we developed a high-speed communication system between automobiles using 60 GHz charged waves, and showed the possibility of application to safety information transmission and automatic brake assistance from the measured data (October 2003).
  • At Hiroshima City University, I have carried out analyzing characteristics of MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) mobile wireless communications, cognitive radios that recognize the surrounding radiowave environment and set up communication parameters themselves, collision avoidance car-borne radars, and emergency wake-up receivers.
  • In mobile radio communications, there is often a gap between theory and practice, and my life work is to fill that gap.
