Designing Fukuoka Smart East
Fukuoka Smart East is poised to be the smart city of the future where innovation and comfortable living meet. Fukuoka City, while compact, is rich with natural elements and bustling urban spaces. The city is appealing for many reasons, including being heralded as "The Startup City" and one of the most livable cities in the world.

However, as with many areas in Japan, the declining birthrate, aging society, decreasing population, and environmental issues are at the forefront of many peoples’ minds. Taking a proactive approach to these issues, Fukuoka Smart East aims to create a futuristic city where comfortable living and innovation intersect to make a sustainable city. As smart city initiatives are launching both in Japan and overseas,
Fukuoka City is ready to take on the challenge and develop the future of urban redevelopment.

Building the Future of Fukuoka
Just as the community needed innovative startups to turn Fukuoka into a startup city,
Fukuoka Smart East's community development requires input. To succeed, the project needs contributions from local community members, field experts, and those who are passionate about cutting-edge technology that will solve social issues.

PoC (Proof of Concept) of a drone flying beyond visual range in an urban area.
As part of the Fukuoka Smart East initiative, Fukuoka City and the Fukuoka Directive Council held an event in which people in the community could see advanced technology. Outline of the PoC: The drone takes off automatically from the delivery robot that carries on its top and lands on the designated spot and releases the package. In the urban area, various radio waves fly around, but in that situation, we verified whether it was possible to take off and land safely.

Demonstration of automated package delivery robot successfully carried out
Fukuoka City and the Fukuoka Directive Council held an event where local residents could see advanced technologies as part of the "Fukuoka Smart East" initiative. Delivery robot outline: A small package carrier that travels automatically, can avoid people and obstacles, and travel safely along narrow passages. It can also track leading people, such as delivery workers. If this vehicle is put into practical use, it will be possible to deliver packages on a narrow aisle or a busy street without relying on trucks and others, and it will also be possible for elderly people and children who have difficulty carrying heavy packages. We expect that it is also useful for parents with children in their arms.

Evacuation PoC using automatic translation tools
As part of the Fukuoka Smart East initiative, Fukuoka City, Fukuoka Directive Council, and other organizations conducted a demonstration experiment to show this advanced technology to the community. Demonstration Summary: The demonstration began with an imaginary disaster scenario that required residents to evacuate. Both foreign and local residents used an automatic translation tool called Kotozna Chat on their smartphones to receive and send communications about the evacuation. Kotozna Chat is the first translation tool in Japan that connects with SNS platforms. Participants at the Hakozaki Community Center were sent messages about the disaster and evacuation orders in Japanese. There were 31 non-native Japanese speaking participants from 16 countries who each received the evacuation message in their native language. They evacuated to a public hall that was the designated shelter area. Then, participants were able to use the automatic translation chat tool to communicate with one another about exchanging evacuation supplies.
