Title: 4D Geospatial Service Infrastructure for Human and Machine Collaboration
Prof. Ryosuke Shibasaki, Center for Spatial Information Science, University of Tokyo
Date & Time: January 28, 2010 15:30
Venue: Conference Room, 01st floor, 'C' Block, Kanwal Rekhi Bldg.
For the next 10 years, technical environment of tracking people and objects will make a rapid progress. In addition to Modernized GPS program, EU, Russia and China will start global positioning services using their own satellites. India and Japan will follow by initiating regional services using IRNSS (Indian Regional Navigation Satellite Systems) and QZSS (Quasi-Zenith Satellite Systems), respectively. For high density urban area and indoor environment, wireless LAN, RFID, visible light communications, and indoor GPS will be available for seamless positioning. Combined with advances in sensor technology and pervasive computing/network technologies, we can track individuals and the other objects like vehicles and cargos wherever they move, and also monitor the changes of environment like emergence of buildings, traffic jams and resulting air pollutions. Through these technical devices and environment, we can collect and manage movement or activity records of people, that could lead to better, richer and more importantly well-coordinated or synchronized “real services” including navigation, driver-assistance, disaster forecast, evacuation support and robotics service. In this talk, I will also cover the changes and trends in legal and policy framework in Japan along with this direction and propose a research strategy integrating various “real services” through sharing 4 dimensional (hopefully real-time) geospatial information on dynamic real world.
Speaker Profile:
Dr. Ryosuke Shibasaki is Professor of Center for Spatial Information Science, the University of Tokyo. He is a project leader of ISO/TC211, an international committee to establish international standards of GIS, from 1996. His major research interests are; integration of data and models based on GIS to reconstruct spati-temporal dynamics of objects, micro-simulation modeling, 3D mapping of urban areas, and their applications.
