Message from the person in charge (Koji Sato)

Accidents caused by aging drivers have become a major social issue. How can we reduce such accidents? This research adopts an approach from the perspective of ‘human characteristics’ in order to realize our desire. In the demonstration experiment utilizing the results of our research, many participants were actually able to experience safer changes in their driving behaviors. We are confident that the results will contribute toward the realization of a safe and secure mobility society in the future. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to all the participants, the researchers and the related parties for their cooperation and collaboration. We will continue to pursue our wish “realization of a society where anyone can move freely and forever!”
