Joint demonstration with Toyota Motor Corporation and Misawa Home Research Institute. Conducting demonstration experiment of seamless transfer through spatial linkage between home and mobility
~ Research on housing that provides freedom of movement for everyone ~ ……
Prime Life Technologies Co., Ltd. (Minato-ku, Tokyo/President: Ryo Kitano), together with Toyota Motor Corporation and Misawa Home Research Institute, is conducting a demonstration experiment for seamless transfer of wheelchair users through space*1 coordination between home and mobility at Toyota Home. The event will be held at ATOLIS PARK Kariya (Kariya City, Aichi Prefecture), an experiential comprehensive housing exhibition hall.

https://prtimes.jp/a/?f=d101175-7-b8a3c51e60582e50ed6e6731460fdf33.pdf This demonstration is one of Prime Life Technologies’ efforts to realize value creation through spatial collaboration between homes and mobility, and will be carried out jointly by combining the knowledge of Toyota Motor Corporation’s technology division and Misawa Home Research Institute. It is something to do. The purpose of this demonstration was to prove the hypothesis that in Japan, which has the highest aging rate in the world, the social issue of restricting the freedom of many elderly people to go out can be solved by creating a connection between commercially available mobility and housing. is. Specifically, by using commercially available mobility devices and renovating existing homes, we will eliminate gaps in distance, flow lines, and horizontal and vertical directions to make them
barrier-free, allowing wheelchair users to transfer directly from their rooms to the mobility devices, thereby increasing the freedom of wheelchair users. We will verify whether encouraging people to go out can help reduce the burden on families living together.
The model house used at the demonstration site has a flat sash to avoid creating a level difference between the living room and the wood deck, and a foldable awning is attached to the top of the wood deck to keep it dry from the rain, and side curtains can be attached so that it can be seen from the outside. You can move around without worrying about what people are looking at. Furthermore, by attaching a lift to the wooden deck for getting on and off commercially available mobility vehicles, the burden on caregivers is reduced.
Prior to this demonstration, in a demonstration experiment for medical personnel and care workers conducted in January 2024, transfer to a commercially available mobility vehicle could be completed in the shortest distance from the living room and by moving straight ahead, making it possible to transfer to a commercially available mobility vehicle regardless of the weather or climatic conditions. Wheelchair users are able to leave the house freely with only the support of their family without being affected by it, and because they get on and off from the side door of a passenger car, compared to welfare vehicles where they get on and off from the back door (rear door), wheelchair users can sit in the second row. It was highly praised for being able to go out with a sense of unity with the family in a space. [Scene from demonstration experiment of home/mobility space collaboration]

In order to realize Prime Life Technologies’ vision of “changing the ‘normal’ of daily life,” we aim to realize a decarbonized society by creating new value.

*1: This demonstration is a space-specific demonstration from the perspective of energy, information, and space through the fusion of home and mobility.
*2: CASE is a coined word that stands for “Connected,” “Autonomous,” “Shared & Services,” and “Electric.”
