Masahiko Miyaki, Yukihiro shinohara,
and Katsuhiko takeuchi
For development of electronic multipoint fuel-injection systems,
enabling fuel-ef´Čücient and low-emission diesel engines

The development of electronic multipoint fuel-injection technology by Masahiko Miyaki, Yukihiro Shinohara, and Katsuhiko
Takeuchi has revitalized the popularity of diesel engines by
enabling high-power operation with better fuel efficiency and
lower emissions than conventional injector technology. The
trio's concept of common rail direct fuel injection featured an
electronically controlled multi-fuel injection system (ECMFIS)
to overcome the limitations of common rail system prototypes
of the 1960s. Incorporating an electronically controlled injector and sensors for speed, cylinder identification, and pressure,
they were the first to successfully commercialize the diesel common rail system in 1995. Prior to their work, the popularity
of conventional diesel engines was waning, due to significant
black smoke emissions from poor atomization of fuel caused by

low injection pressure. Their system allowed high fuel injection
pressure, even at low engine speeds, for finer atomization resulting
in less unburned fuel and fewer particulates. The first-generation
ECMFIS reduced emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulates
by half and cut combustion noise by as much as 10 dB. Their
fourth-generation common rail system (2013) cuts emissions by
80% and further reduces combustion noise. They also developed
an innovative feedback control system that can compensate for
aging deterioration of the fuel injectors to ensure clean emissions
and high drivability throughout the lifespan of the engine.
A Fellow of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, Masahiko
Miyaki is executive vice president;Yukihiro Shinohara is executive
director of electric systems; and Katsuhiko Takeuchi is head of the
diesel business unit-all at DENSO Corporation, Kariya-shi, Japan.

Scope: For outstanding accomplishments in the application of technology in the fields of interest to IEEE that improve the environment
and/or public safety.

John p. lehoczky, ragunathan rajkumar,
and lui sha
For technical leadership and contributions to fundamental
theory, practice, and standardization for engineering real-time
systems

The groundbreaking work of John P. Lehoczky, Ragunathan Rajkumar, and Lui Sha on developing the generalized rate-monotonic scheduling (GRMS) theory has revolutionized the modern
practice of real-time system design by ensuring that critical tasks
can be guaranteed across a wide range of real-world applications.
Building upon the RMS theory introduced by Liu and Layland in
1973, the trio developed and refined GRMS theory over two decades to provide predictability, efficiency, and flexibility in scheduling complex concurrent real-time tasks that regular RMS could
not satisfy. GRMS transformed the development of real-time systems from what was traditionally a hand-crafted, error-prone process into a scientific engineering discipline for building real-time
systems that are pervasive in applications including aerospace, defense systems, transportation, process control, manufacturing, and

medical systems.Their work made it possible to compute both the
average-case and worst-case behaviors with useful mathematical
precision. Not only does GRMS contribute to keeping development costs in check, it also helps assure that expensive mission
failures do not occur. GRMS has been incorporated into IEEE
real-time software standards and hardware standards.
An IEEE Member, John P. Lehoczky is the Thomas Lord University Professor of Statistics and Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie
Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. An IEEE Fellow, Ragunathan Rajkumar is the George Westinghouse Professor with the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Carnegie
Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. An IEEE Fellow, Lui Sha
is the Donald B. Gillies Chair Professor of Computer Science,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA.

Scope: For exceptional achievement in systems engineering and systems science.
