Resilient EICT Research Promotion Office

Research Activities
This office was established by the Research Organization of Electrical Communication (ROEC) to overcome the vulnerability of ICT (Information Communication Technology) in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake, with the aim of establishing disaster-resistant ICT technologies that can ensure necessary communications in the event of a disaster and their social implementation, as well as the creation of resilient ICT engineering. In order to contribute to the creation of new industries in Japan by contributing to the development of the information communication, electronics, and energy industries in the Tohoku region, we aim to conduct project-based research and development to solve social issues through industry, government, and academia, and to implement the results in society. The project will bring together researchers and engineers from Tohoku University in the fields of electrical, communication, electronics, information, medical engineering, disaster science, and social science, and through close and flexible inter-organizational collaboration, will develop a digital twin based on a network infrastructure for resilient power energy, information and communication, and other areas, and thereby to promote world-leading innovative research and development and its social implementation.
This Office organizes the Research Strategy Planning Section and the following six research groups to carry out its activities.

R&D for further advancement of the 5G
Left: Establish network control technology for green and resilient B5G networks responding to resilience to frequent and serious natural disasters and the transition to a carbon-free society.
Right: Develop IRS that can change the reflection characteristics of incident radio wave, and cooperation technology with base stations and user terminals. These techniques not only eliminate blindness zones, but also minimize the effect on adjacent frequencies.
