AWARD at the Mobility Innovation Week Japan 2023 in Tokyo

AWARD took part in the Mobility Innovation Week Japan 2023, in Tokyo, on 17 November 2023, organized jointly by Mobility Innovation Alliance Japan and ITS Japan.

Mobility Innovation Week Japan 2023, co-hosted by Mobility Innovation Alliance Japan and ITS Japan, marked a pivotal moment in the journey of the AWARD project. Building on the decade-long success of the “SIP-adus Workshop,” the event broadened its horizons to embrace the broader theme of innovation in mobility, particularly in the realm of autonomous driving. In the Tokyo area, the weeklong event featured the “Mobility Innovation Workshop,” an international platform that addressed the latest trends and innovations in autonomous mobility. This was complemented by thematic workshops and technical tours organized in collaboration with key stakeholders.
