Kyoto Marathon – Vehicle Location Management by “VasMap”

The 2015 Kyoto Marathon is one of the major citizen marathon events in Japan, with 16,000 runners participating. In citizen marathons, which involve the closing off of roads within large cities, strict security measures and careful traffic management are essential. In particular, in order to ensure that the reopening of streets proceeds smoothly, it is necessary to be able to check the progress of the race in real time.

VasMap is adopted as a position management system for the lead cars, police motorbikes and clean-up vehicles that move along with the runners, and it is utilized at the race control center.

VasMap is installed in a total of 6 vehicles consisting of police motorbikes at the head of the race, lead cars and clean-up vehicles, and used to manage vehicle positioning.

Position data from the vehicles is sent to Akasakatec’s cloud server, allowing the positions of all vehicles to be checked in real time with a web browser at the race control center (at the finish line), as well as at police and fire department control centers.
