What AIF aims to achieve

A smart city project and regional revitalization

Since August 2011, Accenture has been working with Aizuwakamatsu city in its efforts for disaster recovery and regional revitalization.

Pilots on advanced digital technologies

Collaborate with partners which provide advanced technologies and ideas to pilot a scheme, helping them realize innovation.

Examples of smart city projects


Launched the local portal site “Aizuwakamatsu+" to promote two-way communications between the city and its citizens.

The digital disaster prevention system

A system that when a local government issues an evacuation order in the event of a disaster, GPS is activated to acquire each citizen's location information and display the route from the current location to the nearest evacuation center.​

Visualization of energy use

HEMS devices have been installed across the city to monitor electricity use, which is posted to Aizuwakamatsu+ for citizens to access.

"Snowplow Navigation"

Users can obtain real-time information on where snowplows equipped with GPS are located and which roads have been cleared of snow.

Promoting inbound sightseeing "VISIT + AIZU"

Launched a digital promotion which offer attractive sightseeing spots depending on their nationalities’ travel preferences.

Mobile payment services

Tourists can make payments via mobile device. Citizenz registered at Aizuwakamatsu+ can also use the services.

Digital medicine

Doctors will be able to input data into the electronic medical record system and retrieve patient data by voice input by AI.

Developing analytics talent

The Univ. of Aizu offers endowed courses to develop analytics talent capable of using open data and making suggestions to the city and local business.

Three strengths of AIF

Future city life that uses advanced technologies is being piloted in 8 areas—energy, tourism, preventive medicine, education, agriculture, manufacturing, finance and transportation.

We have implemented citizen-oriented projects that have served to make citizens aware that data and technologies are used to solve local issues and improve the quality of their daily life.

Accenture’s "Smart City Platform" enables a variety of data possessed by the city’s administrative bodies, business community and citizens to be collected conducting analysis and experiments.
