Next-generation Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperative Service


As of March 2012, we have been conducting public road tests to verify the benefits of a new innovative service that will provide support for safe and environmentally-friendly driving by utilizing the ability of radio waves to pass around sight obstructions such as buildings and large-size trucks.

Roadside-Vehicle Communication

Traffic conditions which cannot be detected by on-board sensors, e.g. due to poor visibility, are detected by sensors installed at the roadside, which pass the information on to the vehicle.

Vehicle-Vehicle Communication

Vehicles exchange information on position and speed in order to detect the presence and behavior of surrounding vehicles.
