Mathematical Science Research Project for Realization of the Future Mobility Society
Collaboration with the Advanced Mathematical Science for Mobility Society Research Unit, Kyoto University
The Frontier Research Center of Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) is further accelerating research through co-creation with research institutes in Japan and overseas. We are working with, the Advanced Mathematical Science for Mobility Society Research Unit of Kyoto University on a mathematical science research project for realizing the future mobility society. You can read about the thoughts of professors from Kyoto University and members from Toyota here (You will forward to the Kyoto Uni. site. Japanese only. The site is to open on April 2, 2022).
Messages from the members
Toyota positions mathematical and data sciences as fundamental research fields, and is actively engaged in its researches. In this project, we are co-creating with many professors mainly from Kyoto University from the perspectives of analysis of people, material, and information flows, tensor data and graph networks, and algorithm theory. The main goal is to develop new mathematics to support the future mobility society. Our research results are actively reported at international conferences1,2.
