Smart Future City Laboratory
Date of establishment: November 1, 2016
It is said that tens of billions of IoT (Internet of Things) devices will exist over the course of several years. This laboratory aims to resolve the various issues present in human society with the use of these devices. We will promote the development of various technologies needed to accomplish this task, and make efforts to promote the practical use of these technologies through industry-government-academia cooperation. There is a need to efficiently circulate data streams generated by an enormous amount, and wide variety of, IoT devices, and to intellectually integrate and analyze multiple data streams in order to obtain information from people, things, and space, process large quantities of information and produce information with high added value, and reflect that to real space to improve the convenience, safety, enjoyment, etc. of human life. There is also a need to create various fine-grained services including smart homes, smart mobility, and smart cities, and to operate them in a coordinated fashion.
This laboratory will make the objectives listed above possible by conducting research regarding: (1) IoT systems, (2) people and IoT, (3) vehicles and IoT, and (4) IoT data analysis, etc. Results from this research will always be given as feedback to local governments, etc., and will be implemented towards society.
