As selection, examples of the books are “Introduction in Relativistic Theory and its Applications to New Technology” (Moscow, 1979); “Problems for Quantum and Relativistic Dynamic Control Systems” (Moscow, 1982); “Statistical Dynamics of Machine Building Constructions” (Moscow, 1977); “Statistical Analysis of Building Construction on Earthquake Excitations” (Moscow, 1977); “Theory of models in Control Systems” (Moscow,1978), “Fuzzy controllers and Intelligent Control Systems “(Moscow,1990,1991 and 1992). “Quantum Information and Quantum Computational Intelligence: Backgrounds and Applied Toolkit of Information Design Technologies,” (Vol. 79 – 86, Italy, 2005).

From 1974 he gave lectures in Moscow University of Electronics, Automatic and Radiotechnique as a Professor; from 1994 – 1997 is professor of University of Electro- Communications (Tokyo, Japan); from 1998 – 2003 as professor of Milan University (Italy).

He is the member of Editorial board in many International Journals as “Soft Computing: A Fusion of Foundations, Methodologies and Applications,” “Journal of Robotics and Mechatronics,” “Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence,” “Biomedical Engineering,” and etc.; chainman of many sections in International conferences; scientific coordinator of International projects between USA, Italy, Japan and Russia. He is inventor of more than 25 patents (robust intelligent control and quantum soft computing) published in USA, EU, Japan and China.

Industry Activities He developed a practical model of the wall climbing robot for the decontamination of Chernobyl nuclear-power plant, for cleaning, painting, fire-fighting operations, etc.; fuzzy controller for mobile robots and manipulators in the Institute for Problems in Mechanics (Russian Academy of Sciences) and in the University of Electro- Communications (Tokyo, Japan). In the earthquake engineering he developed a new designing technology of building with variable structures. In mechatronics he contributed to the development of a new electro-pneumatic proportional regulator on VLSI for intelligent controllers of the wall climbing robot and suspension of automobile. In biomedical engineering he invented a new apparatus for artificial lung ventilation on the basis of this electro-pneumatic regulator and got patens for it. Together with ST Microelectronics Company (Italy-French) he was developing new software and hardware of interfaces for fuzzy processor and fuzzy controller. The applications of this fuzzy controller are expected to intelligent mobile robot for service use which is developed in the Prof.Yamafuji Laboratory, the University of Electro-Communications (Tokyo, Japan), and apparatus for artificial lung ventilation in the Biomedical Research Institute in Russia. In Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd he was developing toolkit for applications of quantum computing in robust intelligent control system design.

Prof. S.V. Ulyanov was collaborating in AI fuzzy control system and intelligent mechatronics for mobile robots and a robotic unicycle in the Yamafuji & Ulyanov Lab., Department of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems of the University of Electro-Communications (Tokyo, Japan); and intelligent robust control of car suspension system and robotic motorcycle in Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
