Creating cities where people can live comfortably through
the study of urban and transportation systems.

MINAMI Masaaki (Professor)

We carry out research related to the planning and design of urban and transportation systems, from the point of view of the important role of these systems in making people’s lives comfortable. Our research covers many areas vital to the planning of a safe and secure city including support for disaster prevention and evacuation planning, barrier-free access and route information for an aging society, proposals for sustainable urban and transportation systems in provincial areas, long-term plans for the maintenance and management of urban and transportation facilities, and development of a support system for urban and transportation planning.
