Mobility demonstration at Wakayama Castle (multiple reports from several media)

From December 2nd to December 4th and from December 8th to December 11th, multiple mobility-related demonstration experiments were conducted at Wakayama Castle Park in Wakayama City, Wakayama Prefecture.

Furthermore, this demonstration experiment was covered in the news from Sankei Shimbun, Yomiuri Shimbun, Mainichi Shimbun, and Wakayama TV.
This experiment was organised in cooperation with Wakayama City and hosted by our laboratory and HULIX Corporation.

In Wakayama Castle Park, various types of mobility operations and circulation measures have been implemented, along with the measurement of visitors' movement and behaviour data in a privacy-conscious manner. The collected data was processed in a digital twin platform to be used for mobility management, traffic risk investigation, and other purposes. Potential applications include verifying circulation measures and considering the introduction of mobility for the future urban development of Wakayama City.

Multi-person green slow mobility (Green Slow), two types of personal mobility vehicles for movement, and four types of new mobility, including electric kickboards, were provided for running and experiencing between the southern car park of Wakayama Castle Park and Wakayama City Hall in the north. In addition, LiDAR and GPS logs were used to measure the movement and behaviour of people in and around Wakayama Castle Park.
