Micware and Odakyu Electric Railway to Expand Collaboration on Open Common Data Infrastructure "MaaS Japan"

~"Be There Be Now" To the world where you want to go out voluntarily~

Micware Co., Ltd. (Head office: Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture; President and Chairman: Kenji Narushima; "Micware") and Odakyu Electric Railway Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Koji Hoshino; "Odakyu") agreed to consider services to expand the collaboration of the open common data platform "MaaS Japan".

Micware will link its cloud-based point of interest (POI) data, etc., using artificial intelligence (AI), which has been independently developed, to the open common data platform "MaaS Japan" provided by Odakyu. We are considering the development of a tourism support MaaS (Mobility as a Service) application that provides information on spots of interest such as tourist spots, stations, stores, and hotels in various places in Japan.

Through the development of this tourism support MaaS, local governments have been able to realize “whenever they want, to any place they want” and “transport services that are conveniently connected”, perform “local revitalization” throughout Japan, and promote the tourism industry. We will contribute to.
