Abstract

Under JST RISTEX S3FIRE program, we are trying to implement Smart Access Vehicle (SAV) Service in Hakodate. The project adopts the method of service science loop – the repeated cycle of observation, design and implementation. In this paper we report the completion of its first cycle, and discuss how the cycle improved our initial design. We first conducted person trip research in Hakodate. We chose 20 candidates of various age and occupation, and recorded their everyday movements for 4 months. We then analyzed the result and made a person trip model. The model was then fed into our multi-agent simulator for Hakodate public transportation system. We conducted a small field test with five vehicles for 1 week. The most significant achievement is that we confirmed that our design of SAV system works. We succeeded in automatically dispatching five vehicles for 11 h without any significant trouble or human supervision.
