LRT in Toyama City

Transportation infrastructure and Transportation system supply our mobility which is one of essential activities for our life. They are also tools of urban planning and fundamental technologies which decide the shape of city. It is really diverse what we ask for such Transportation infrastructure and Transportation system: economic rationality, accommodation to environment, and so on. Therefore, at present and future, as environment and resource are limited and society is changed, it must be necessary to reform their performances. At our laboratory, we study about the demand prediction of public transport, the human behavioral science on transportation, transportation system and transport facilities planning, and so on to realize the transportation sysytem which balances sustainable city and wealth of urban life.
