|ITS sensing infrastructure Investigating R&D Committee|
|This report summarizes the investigative action in ITS sensing infrastructure Investigating R&D Committee organized under the Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan CIndustrial applications society¤ ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems:) technical committee.
The sensing technology in connection with ITS is spreading steadily. Automation is also following a cycle until various sensors including an imaging sensor are deeply included in a traffic system and are shown through the information gathering from a sensor, and processing and accumulation.
It is going to bear big progress also to research and development of the sensor network which treats the sensor connected by network in such a situation.
Based on such a situation, the investigative action was performed over about three years in the committee from October, 2007.
Specifically positioning sensing technology as a road traffic infrastructure, the committee research ITS sensing how to contribute efficiency, safety, comfort in the whole road.
