Dadios awarded best paper presentation in international confab

He was the one who pushed the Philippine soccer robot team to win the gold and silver medals in its World Cup debut in Australia in September of 2000.

Recently, the prestigious IEEE Industrial Electronics Society awarded the Best Paper Presentation to Dr. Elmer Dadios of the Manufacturing Engineering and Management Department. The ceremony was held during the 27th annual conference held in Denver, Colorado, USA.

Dadios’ winning paper, co-authored with Odon Maravillas, Jr., graduate student of the College of Computer Studies, was titled “Fuzzy Logic Controller for Micro-Robot Soccer Game.” The paper develops the applicability of using fuzzy logic controller and incorporates it with other heuristics strategy for robots to play soccer.

As in a real soccer game, fuzzy logic was used to navigate the robots in performing the tasks required such as kicking the ball and robot positioning. On the other hand, the heuristics approach is used as guiding rules for role selection, such as the attacker, defender, and goalkeeper.

Dadios is also the publicity chair in Asia and Australia of the 2002 IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control (ISIC). The event will be held on October 27-30 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
