The research purpose of this unit is to develop a simulation system evaluates mutual behavioral safety in “Mixed Mobility Urban space.”
The smart city development plan will be steadily promoted by MaaS and AI of vehicles.
But at the same time, such an urban space will induce many accidents due to the mixture of pedestrians, cars, PVs and logistic drones, etc. Moreover, the existing pedestrian space safety evaluation method cannot simultaneously evaluate crowd flow and vehicle behavior. This background gives us an opportunity to holistically consider urban space design and vehicle mechanical engineering. Some remarkable achievements outcoming from individual studies shown below will be presented in the process of system construction.
The individual research themes and their characteristics are as follows.
Study of the Most Suitable Work Environment at Home in the Future City that Pandemic and Reform of How to Work was Emphasized
In this research, we study the most suitable work environment at home in the future city that pandemic and reform of how to work was emphasized. We will propose the work environment at home and contribute to SDGs with continuation possibility suitable for Japanese future cities. In this project, we emphasize the points of view of Universal Design, human-centered design, housing manufacturing technique, environmental harmony, and city disaster prevention.
All over the world, Covid-19 came into fashion. And attention is collected in the work style for which IT was utilized effectively. In particular, a work at home is watched by the angle of the utilization in time and the lifework balance of the people. By a social background above-mentioned, we study the most suitable work environment at home in the future city that pandemic and reform of how to work was emphasized. We will propose the best work environment at home and contribute to SDGs with continuation possibility suitable for Japanese future cities. In this research project, we promote interdisciplinarity and emphasize the points of view of Universal Design, human-centered design, housing manufacturing technique, environmental harmony, and disaster prevention, and so on.
We're studying urban life system that everyone tends to live a lot while effectively using IT like IoT, AI, Big Data technique. Especially, we emphasize IoT technique like full color and highest security level QR code.
Both laboratories are jointly developing a construction method for a trailer house-type housing unit that can be moved to any location and can be attached to and reused in existing houses. It can also be used as a remote work space in the corona disaster.
The research project has been conducted aiming at environmental-friendly neighborhood space design in consideration of surrounding microclimate in neighborhood scale. The results can be expected to apply for a further study on well-ventilated surrounding spaces under the new norm in the COVID-19 era.
Our research theme is risk perception and evacuation behavior related to disaster and disaster mitigation management.
Nowadays natural disasters frequently occur and our working styles has changed due to COVID-19.We are investigating how these impacts influence on attitude toward disaster or residential choice behavior.
