The members of the Smart Network Project – NTT DOCOMO, INC., NEC Corporation, Sekisui House, Ltd., NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. and other participating companies – announced today plans to test and demonstrate communication standards for networked home electronics and electric vehicles (EVs), ultimately aiming to achieve global communication standards that will serve as key building blocks for sustainable low-carbon societies of the future.
The tests and demonstrations will take place in Yokohama city’s Minato Mirai 21 district between November 2010 and March 2011. Initial test facilities are planned to be completed by November 4 in time for inspections by the media and participants in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings, which will be held in Yokohama from November 7 to 14. The facilities are expected to be further expanded and eventually opened to the public. Details Here.
