Co-Mobility Society Research Project and Automated -Vehicles

Keio UniversityProfessor EmeritusHironao Kawashima(21 October 2012)


Children usingremote control.Ordesr from theShopping Mall.Delivery by automaticvehicle from the Shopping Mall.Ease of movement.Easier for people to gather.Concept of the Co-Mobility SocietyPropose creating a social and technological platform.Announce the vision and methodologies worldwide.Safe, secure. Low environmental & energy load. Enhanced social activities.112Special Definition of Mobility in Co-Mobility ResearchMobilityRevealed and potential mobility by using car, taxi, bus and rail road. Long distance travel by rail road, ship and airplane is not directly treated in this researchVirtual MobilityCommunication can be accomplished without actually traveling to meet each otherTelemedicine system has been very successful. (blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure)Remote MobilityThe travel is accomplished by remotely controlled transport means. The operator can be users family or friendsAutomated MobilityThe travel is accomplished by fully automated transport means23
