Abstract

This is a report on case studies for the postal service vehicles equipped with connected technology during the social experiment for a safe and secure urban development project run by Kakogawa City, Hyogo, which utilized ICT developed through a public-private partnership. Improvements on safety and security were sought by linking the information logged in the in-vehicle cameras on postal service vehicles during deliveries and BLE beacon detection terminals so that dynamic monitoring is also enabled on residential roads where the installation of fixed surveillance cameras is limited. In addition, locations on residential roads that potentially need repair were estimated and identified using the data obtained from in-vehicle sensors during deliveries, which indicated issues and potential developments toward creating safe and secure communities reveal ed through the social experiment, together with introducing the attempts of road administrators in reducing the man-hours required for field surveys.
