I would like improve daily-life by analyzing huge data collected from sensors available in urban environments such as car navigation systems, smartphones and so on. For Intelligent Transport Systems, in order to realize a safer and more comfortable traffic environment, I have been working to develop not only the computational infrastructure for huge driving data collected by probe cars, but also the techniques to analyze when and where car jams and accidents occur. On the other hand, I have been also developing several technologies to estimate surrounding environments by wearable sensors, which usually monitor human activities. For example, one of the technologies can detect slopes on roads by sensing foot movements, and I am planing to extend this technology so that it can automatically generate indoor and outdoor maps. I believe that these technologies can figure out the surrounding environment in disaster situations to support safe and efficient evacuation.

The four-digit phone numbers are extensions at Osaka University. To call directly from outside Osaka University, dial a phone number marked S after (area code 06) 6850 or a phone number marked T after (area code 06) 6879. For a phone number marked S (extension), however, first dial the main phone number (06) 6879-5111.
