      ABSTRACT
      This article aims to bring together representative applications of
      mobile research in Japan from various perspectives including engineering,
      cognitive science, and education. First an infrastructure for mobile phones
      utilizing GPS (Global Positioning System) is developed in the first section,
      which is applicable to the following sections. A support system for disaster
      victims in unfamiliar environments and a driver support system considering
      spatial cognitive ability and its application to human navigation are
      detailed in the second and third sections. Finally in the fourth section,
      mobile-assisted English as a Foreign Language education is presented in terms
      of podcasting. These diverse applications have mobility in common, which in
      turn makes m-learning possible, extending a mobile infrastructure into new
      domains for ubiquitous learning. For future research the writers, who
      represent various disciplines and institutions in different areas of Japan,
      plan to collaborate further on the convergence of these technologies for m-learning.
