REIMAGINING MOBILITY FOR LOS ANGELES
Mobility is an intrinsic element of city living, with profound impact on livability, productivity, and environmental quality. New mobility technology is set to change lifestyles and urban environments around the world. As Los Angeles and Tokyo continue to be hotbeds for the development of new types of mobility, from driverless cars to robot carriers, the future is now.
On August 15, please join Japan House Los Angeles and the Petersen Museum in “Reimagining Mobility for Los Angeles”, a remarkable evening of insight into the next stages of mobility. University of Tokyo Professor, Shunji Yamanaka and UCLA Studio Professor, Greg Lynn, will share their visions for Los Angeles with a member of the City of L.A.’s urban design team, linking technology, transportation, and urban development.
This event will feature the world premiere public demonstration, direct from Tokyo, of the “ride-roid” CanguRo, created by Professor Yamanaka and members from the Chiba Institute of Technology. Professor Lynn will be showcasing the Piaggio Fast Forward project’s personal robot cargo carrier, Gita. A reception with the speakers will follow.
