General Description of the Research Project This project aims to reduce the amount of energy consumed and to conduct research and development towards the realization of low-carbon smart cities, and to develop related adaptive strategic approaches in India, where there is a dramatic increase in the amount of traffic. Specially, it focuses modal-shift by analysis of traffic big-data collected traffic-amount-sensing through proper network real time and establish optimal transport system by real time traffic information deliveries, proper traffic light control, and optimal transport choice selection with personal devices towards reducing energy consumption. The research results will be utilized in the construction of models of overall urban low-carbon benefits, and in feedback for developing adaptive strategic methods, through systemization of the transport platform to be established at the India Institutes of Technology Hyderabad, and through verification experiments on two transport routes in Ahmadabad City. We will enable the use of these results as smart city guidelines for standardization not only in Indian society, but also in emerging countries, especially in Asia. The multimodal system implementation will be driven by regional consortia, which link industry, government, and academia under this program. This framework will be expanded into other newly emerging countries, as aiming for expansion of the subject area. By the completion of the research period, we will also utilize the results in the increasing use of multi-modalities in Japan’s aging society (linking human friendly transport).
