Utsunomiya City and NEC Start Demonstration Experiment Using Face Recognition for Realization of Smart City
Utsunomiya City has established the "U Smart Promotion Council", which is organized by various universities and businesses, and works with the public and private sectors to solve social issues and create new businesses using ICT (Information and Communication Technology). I'm going at. Specifically, the four themes of "Renaissance Otani Realization," "Smart Mobility Services," "Smart Energy Management," and "Smart Hospitality" are aimed at realizing a smart city that can develop sustainably in the future. We are working on it.

Recently, Utsunomiya City and NEC Corporation (NEC), which are members of the U Smart Promotion Council, will start demonstration experiments using ICT such as face recognition toward the realization of smart cities.

In the demonstration experiment, it is convenient while giving due consideration to measures against infectious diseases, such as promoting migration around the city by providing information through a smartphone app, and smooth and non-contact facility entry / exit and shopping (payment) using face recognition. We will verify the efforts of "smart hospitality" that will lead to the formation of a comfortable central city area.

Demonstration experiment using smartphone app
The smartphone app "Profitable and Fun Utsunomiya" that helps you walk around Utsunomiya City will be released. In addition to distributing information on events, sightseeing, and restaurants in the city, coupons that can be used locally and lottery tickets that win goods from the basketball team "Utsunomiya Brex" will be distributed to those who have registered as members through the app.

In addition, a mission to encourage city tours will be presented on the app, and gourmet coupons for nearby stores will be provided to those who have cleared it. Furthermore, we will analyze data such as visitor behavior / attribute estimation and consider effective measures to attract customers. The verification period of the demonstration experiment is from March 16, 2021 to April 25, 2021.
