OUR PROJECTOMY Smart City Vision

Outline of OMY Smart City Vision

Based on the Smart City Vision formulated in 2019,OMYArea Smart City Promotion Consortium continues to work in partnership with various businesses , conducts demonstration experiments using new ecosystem-type technologies, and applies the verification results to realizing a smart city. It also contributes to developments in other smart cities throughout Japan through collaborations with area management organizations in various areas.

Updating existing urban functions and realizing the redesigning of urban spaces

Updating existing urban functions and realizing the redesigning of urban spaces

OMY Smart City Vision clearly states that we will create a “vision-oriented” smart city in order to realize “Vision of urban development goals” set forth in “Guideline for the Redevelopment of the Area”.
We see smart cities as a means to achieve our urban development goals, and by utilizing new technologies and urban data, we can update existing urban functions and realize redesigned urban spaces.

Building a digital transformation (DX) model for area management

Building Area management model by digital transformation (DX)

In OMY smart city, we will build Area management model by digital transformation (DX)that will make data-based decisions by collecting real-time urban data through a sophisticated fusion of digital and real cities. It will also make it possible to visualize, analyze, and simulate urban conditions in real time, which will dramatically improve the “creativity, comfort, and efficiency” of the city and increase its value.

Building an infrastructure for using data of the city

Building an infrastructure to use urban data

In order to realize OMY Smart City, we will build “OMY version of city OS,” “2D/3D models of the city,” “dashboard” to visualize urban data, and “simulators” to study urban redesigning, etc., as an infrastructure for utilizing urban data.

We are also working on the implementation of a “data library,” a data librarian function that will allow us to use the accumulated urban data to create new services.

Moving ahead with efforts upon making verifications through experiments and simulations

Promote efforts by verifying through experiments and simulations

In order to realize a convenient and comfortable city that can adapt to new implemented technology, we will conduct simulations based on gathered data and examine the redesigning of urban space . After presenting a concrete image of redesigning and establishing a common understanding of the hypothesis of the future of urban space, we will verify it through experiments and simulations and proceed with our efforts.

*Please see the ”OMY Smart City Vision Action Plan” for other redesigning images.

Redesigning images

We have formulated a redesigning image of the area based on the concept of “Smart and Walkable” and have presented a future vision of OMY version of MaaS. Since each street in the area has its own characteristics, we formulated a future vision according to the characteristics of each street.

(under normal conditions)

In the walkable space, we envision the introduction of mobility (green slow mobility, personal mobility, etc.) that supports and coexists with pedestrians and relaxing people.
We are also planning to use lighting devices for flexible zoning and to install multifunctional signage poles to collect and transmit a variety of information.

During MICE events, we envision the use of pallet-type mobility as a venue for after-MICE events, as well as green slow mobility to connect MICE venues scattered throughout the area.

Redesigning image at transport hubs

Redesigned image at transportation nodes
At transportation nodes (e.g., nodes between entrances and exits from stations), mobility ports and boarding/unboarding areas will be clustered to enable seamless transfers. In addition, dedicated lanes for medium-speed mobility will be provided to enable rapid movement within and outside the area.

Redesigning image at cross-sections of buildings

For the personal mobility hangars and taxi cab pools, we envision the effective use of existing stock by converting parking lots. We also envision the possibility of converting the basement floor and parking lot floor into a lively space through the use of pallet-type mobility.
