TOKYO – May 20, 2022 – NTT DATA, a global digital business and IT services leader, announces the release of the beta version of Mobicomma™, a MaaS (Mobility as a Service) solution for Tourists, on June 15 in Okinawa1.
Mobicomma is a MaaS environment for Tourists, a solution beyond daily mobility for the future where autonomous driving is realized. The several tablets installed in the vehicle allow passengers to share their travel itinerary, and suggestions for tourist spots based on their location and destination.

ORIX Auto Corporation will provide this service at their car rental shops around the Naha Airport from June to September1. Tourism companies and local governments will also be able to use this system for their sightseeing services.
NTT DATA aims to commercialize Mobicomma in FY2023 and expand the number of the car rental and car-sharing operators applying this system in the tourism industry. NTT DATA will also engage with Automotive Company to develop the service for private vehicles and self-driving vehicles.
NTT DATA's corporate philosophy is using information technology to create new paradigms and values, which help contribute to a more affluent and harmonious society.
