Individuals contribute to the society on our own initiatives and help each other. This is the foundation of the inclusive society TRON Project aims to realize. Now that only three years remain before Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the demand for “volunteers” in a broad sense, that is, individuals supporting the society, has become very high.
TRON Project has been working on some projects which encourage “Volunteers in the IoT Age.” TEPS 30th this year introduces the application of “IoT Omotenashi (Hospitality) Cloud” to volunteer activities, for us to manage our own attribute information and example approach of “Open Mobility Guide Platform” promoted by Faculty of Information Networking for Innovation and Design (INIAD), Toyo University. With the application examples, we will conduct the discussion on how social contribution should be in the IoT Age.
