Mobility Culture Research Center
It is inevitable to provide mobility for the enhancement of the community which is the core element of local society. The concept of Mobility Culture Society which is now called MaaS (Mobility as a Service), is a background notion to support the realizations of mobility needs of local society in conjunction with harmonized utilizations of EVs, public transport systems and private cars by applications of information and communication network. R&D of automated driving is getting very active in Europe and U.S.A. In our project, an introduction of automated arriving system which will activate mobility services in a sparsely populated area is investigated.
