Organizer Themed Project (SMART MOBILITY CITY 2011)

This project is to showcase "next-generation automobiles and the social systems with which they interact" to highlight the roles and responsibilities of the automotive industry amidst growing concern over the global environment and resources. The aim of "SMART MOBILITY CITY 2011" is to look at the big-picture implications of what the realization of Japan's "Next Generation Auto Strategy" will bring about and how the automobile will be changed in response to and contribute to such fields as smart communities from which low-carbon societies will emerge through solar power generation, regional energy control and so forth, as well as telematics, which will be improving automobile "safety" and "convenience." The exhibition is open to a broad range of industrial sectors and will also be an opportunity for participating companies to network and explore the potentials for developing new industries and markets.

This project will provide an easy to understand core technology guide to technology systems and how they relate, and will exhibit next generation vehicles. In addition, there will be a core exhibition featuring a thematic video regarding the future of automobiles, people, and cities, next generation vehicle test rides and automatic driving demonstrations, and international symposiums with the themes of ITS and smart communities.
