MOBILITY STORIES FROM 2035
In 2035, the introduction of the 6G network in Japan will redefine movements of people and goods in ways that we couldn’t have predicted.
The network will bring about major changes in transport, communication, and lifestyle; ultimately altering the way we interact with places and services.

6G is expected to allow a data rate of 1TBps.
50x faster than 5G
6G will have a communication delay below 10ms.
10x lower than 5G
The physical location of a connected device can be detected to a cm-level precision in 3D space.
Only within 10 cm and 2D in 5G
6G will be able to host 10 million device connections per square kilometer.
10x denser than 5G

Wireless Information and Energy Transfer
6G Networks will rely on high-energy waves which have the capability of simultaneously transmitting information and powering low-energy devices.
Novel to 6G.
Network as a sensor
By analysing transmission noise, antennas can deduce shapes, location and velocity of objects in their surrounding environment.
Novel to 6G
The 6G network protocol will be able to reconfigure itself to adapt to different data sources or even predict and heal network anomalies.
Novel to 6G.
6G is aiming at 100% land coverage, with limited availability underwater, in the sky and space.
Become a global driver, without leaving your desk.
Navigation beyond your phone screen.
A new network to cope with a changing climate.
Public transport. At your doorstep.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The University of Tokyo’s DLX Design Lab, Kashiwa team focuses on imagining the applications and impacts in mobility. Our current research envisions mobility experiences in the domain of 6G technology and telecommunication in Japan. Our method is based on creating physical and digital artefacts that promote and inspire conversation about the societal implications of technology.
The outcomes of our research will help shape the development of technology in a way which prioritises societal values.
The project is funded by the National Institute Of Information And Communications Technology, Govt. of Japan.
NICT is Japan’s National Research and Development Agency specializing in the field of information and communications technology. It is charged with promoting ICT sector as well as research and development in ICT, which drives economic growth and creates an
affluent, safe and secure society.
