Kohei Hosono



My name is Kohei Hosono. I am a master’s student majoring in computer science, and in Network Information Systems Laboratory (Sato Lab). My research interests include networking for automated vehicles, especially dynamic map and edge computing.

Until last year, I worked part-time as a web developer at WEB KYOTO, and I still develop web applications as an intern or as a hobby. Currently, I am working as a research assistant in Dependable Dynamic Map 2.0 Consortium, a joint research project with several companies.

Dynamic Map Platform for Cooperative Automated Vehicles with Edge Servers


In recent years, connected autonomous vehicles have been significantly studied. Connected vehicles use a variety of sensors, capable of sensing their environment. The dynamic map is a common integration platform, thus, incorporates the real-time traffic information into high accuracy 3D map. Due to this unique mechanism, a dynamic map attracts remarkable attention to some applications. However, the increase in traffic volume using a dynamic map platform, in case of overload in the client requests and responding by a single cloud, triggered to increase in the communication time and mislaid the data packets. Therefore, there is a need for a sustainable communication network. as a solution to this problem, in this study, we proposed the multiple interconnected distributed edge, geographically. Also, it is a problem to relate the moving vehicles to the edge servers and to coordinate between the edge servers. Therefore, I am researching a dynamic map that divides an area on the roadway into Lane Sections and assigns edge servers using the IDs based on these sections.

Open Lab Special Application

As COVID-19, we developed our laboratory open labs fully reservation-based and developed and released a reservation application. [GitHub]

Laboratory Monitoring App

We developed an application that can monitor the presence information of a laboratory in real time. For the front-end, we created a PWA-compatible application in nuxt.js, and for the back-end, we created a Node.js function on AWS Lambda to create a REST API server. [GitHub]
