Professor Toshio Fukuda of the University of Nagoya, Japan will receive the IEEE Robotics and Automation Technical Field Award for leadership and pioneering contributions to Intelligent Robotic Systems and Micro and Nano Robotic Systems.

Fukuda has been working in the area of intelligent robotic systems for over 30 years. He and colleagues and students working under his direction at his University of Nagoya laboratory are recognized for their intelligent robotics systems including brachiation robots, cellular robotic systems and in particular, micro-nano robotic systems. His pioneer work in the micro and nano world include 3D manipulation of the Carbon Nano Tubes (CNT) for nano sensors and actuators.

Fukuda will be presented with the Robotics and Automation Field Award at the Awards Ceremony during ICRA 2010.
