  1. Cities Without Litter Through Artificial Intelligence
    - Littering Investigation and Analysis
    “Takanome” is an artificial intelligence-based program that maps litter and measures the severity thereof
    using visual recognition technology. We aim to contribute to creating litter-free cities by evaluating anti-litter
    efforts through our cutting-edge research and providing other consulting services related to urban
    development.
    Issues in Beautification to Date and Takanome
    To date, there have been various beautification projects across Japan (e.g.,
    enactment of ordinances, volunteer cleanup projects and awareness
    campaigns). Many financial and human resources have been expended to
    these efforts. But because there has been no method or standard for
    measuring the severity of littering, we have not been able to measure the
    effects of cleanup efforts and generally understand the litter problem.
    “Takanome,” a litter investigation system, makes it possible for users to
    investigate and analyze litter in a wide area with high accuracy at a low price.
    Many municipalities have already adopted “Takanome” and are using it to
    understand the litter problem and measure the effects of cleanup efforts –
    they use the collected data for following purposes:
    Investigation Process Using Takanome
    1. Develop
    Investigation Plan
    2. Capture Street
    Surfaces
    3. Analyze Video 4. Check Quality/
    Calibrate
    Depending on the
    purpose of the
    research, design
    research area and
    frequency
    Capture
    sidewalks in
    research area
    with special app
    Use visual
    recognition
    technology to
    analyze types and
    quantity of litter
    Final checks by
    trained staff
    5. Prepare Report
    Use heat maps to
    better understand
    results
    Evaluate Locations for Trash Cans and
    Smoking Areas
    Reduce Costs of Beautification, Cleanup
    and Awareness Projects
    Sync with Regional Cleanup Efforts
    Evaluate Litter “Patrol” Routes
    Compare Against Other Regions
    Research Designs to Prevent Littering

    Takanome Stats Thus Far
    Case Study 2
    • Scope: Litter research in identified area (500m x
    500m)
    • Research: Analysis of effect of litter “patrols”
    for 1 month
    • Time: 1 month –2 investigations to production
    of report
    • Cost: Approx. USD 3K
    Steps to Installation
    Case Study 1
    • Scope: Litter research near approx. 30 stations
    • Research: Analysis of interplay between litter
    and factors that may impact litter (e.g., smoking
    areas, trash cans)
    • Time: 3 months – for investigation to
    production of report
    • Cost: Approx. USD 30K

    Steps
    We confirm the client’s needs
    through a number of meetings and
    thereafter, we will make a proposal
    and provide estimates.
    As soon as specs are agreed
    upon, we will prepare a detailed
    investigation plan and proceed
    to investigation and analysis.
    Research/Analysis
    Meetings
    We will prepare a report
    based on the research
    results and propose next
    steps.
