Takehisa Yaegashi, Shoichi Sasaki and Shinichi Abe
For pioneering contributions to the development and market penetration of hybrid
electric vehicles (HEVs) through the establishment of innovative architectures and
control technologies
and battery. His algorithm has been applied to all Toyota
hybrid vehicles. Mr. Abe was responsible for ensuring low
emissions and drivability of the vehicle. He implemented a
variable valve-timing mechanism to reduce the shock that
was instrumental in THS and THS II system efficiency
exceeding that of hydrogen fuel-cell hybrids at that time as
well as of conventional ICE vehicles.

The combined contributions of Takehisa Yaegashi, Shoichi
Sasaki and Shinichi Abe enabled the development and
commercialization of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) that
have revolutionized the automotive industry. They created
the "Toyota Hybrid System" (THS), resulting in the 1997
Toyota Prius and impacting future versions of HEV technology. The world's first mass-produced HEV, the Prius
obtained revolutionary fuel efficiency using the THS. Dr.
Yaegashi directed the establishment of the integrated
vehicle energy management system. He then improved the
first-generation technology to create THS II, featured in
the 2004 Prius, which significantly improved fuel efficiency,
performance and cost reduction. Professor Sasaki
developed a unified control algorithm that achieved
optimal fuel efficiency and control of the engine, motor

Dr. Yaegashi, Professor Sasaki and Mr. Abe are IEEE Members.
Dr. Yaegashi is president of Cordia Corporation, Ltd., Shizuoka,
Japan. Mr. Sasaki is currently a Professor at Keio University
Graduate School of System Design and Management,
Yokohama, Japan. Mr. Abe is general manager of Toyota Motor
Corporation's
Hybrid
Vehicle
Management
System
Development Division, Aichi, Japan.

Ivan Paul Kaminow

Nancy Lynch

For seminal contributions to electro-optic modulation,
integrated optics and semiconductor lasers, and
leadership in optical telecommunications

For contributions to foundations of distributed
and concurrent computing

Considered a luminary in the field of photonics, Ivan Paul Kaminow's
contributions to lightwave technology have revolutionized telecommunications. Dr. Kaminow explored electro-optic materials for
high-speed modulation of optical signals and developed a titaniumdiffused waveguide for lightwave communications at microwave
frequencies up to 100 GHz. This modulator is the technology of
choice for today's long-distance broadband lightwave systems. He
also demonstrated the distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser and the
ridge-waveguide structure for semiconductor lasers at telecommunications wavelengths. These devices are found in many of today's
commercial lightwave systems. As a research manager at Bell Labs,
Dr. Kaminow led the research in wavelength division multiplexed
(WDM) optical communications. Its low cost and huge information
capacity has made the commercial Internet a reality. An IEEE Life
Fellow, Dr. Kaminow is currently a professor in the Electrical Engineering
and Computer Science Department at the University of California,
Berkeley, where he mentors graduate students in the field.

Nancy Lynch helped define the theoretical underpinnings of distributed computing and has continued to impact all facets of the
field. Among her many contributions, Dr. Lynch is best known for
her work on impossibility results. With colleagues Michael Fischer
and Michael Paterson in 1982, she proved that reaching a
consensus is impossible in distributed computing systems if there
may be even just one faulty process. Known as "FLP," this has
important implications for limitations on the power of distributed
systems since no component has knowledge of what the rest of
the system is doing. Dr. Lynch has proven impossibility results for
many other situations, developing algorithms proving that much
can actually be done in applications ranging from clock synchronization to resource allocation to data management to robot motion
coordination. She also pioneered the "input-output automata"
approach to verifying the correctness of algorithms. Dr. Lynch is
currently the NEC Professor of Software Science and Engineering
at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge.
