2015 ITS Congress: Toyota introduces joint ITS service

Toyota Motor Corporation will be exhibiting at the 22nd ITS World Congress 2015 in Bordeaux, France from October 5 to October 9.

In this exhibit, Toyota will be introducing their latest technology focusing on “cooperative ITS & auto driving technology” as well as the “future generation traffic system” beginning with “safety,” as they are making efforts in their aim to implement a smart mobility society that connects people, cars, and the streets.

Particularly, they will introduce a joint ITS service, which aims to implement a safe traffic society through car-to-car and road-to-vehicle communications. This joint ITS service (including Right-Turn Collision Caution, Red Light Caution, Emergency Vehicle Notification etc.) will be equipped in new cars within Japan as the ITS Connect.

Aside from that, Toyota will also introduce an automatic driving technology and sloping area driving support system: the future generation traffic system Ha:mo, which is currently being tested for verification in the host country France for this congress.

The ITS World Congress is the largest ITS-related international conference that is conducted every year in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America, alternately. With the theme “Towards Intelligent Mobility – Better Use of Space” (a future ITS through space technology), this event will dispatch new value and services that create ITS, starting from space technology like satellite measurements, connecting cars and auto driving technology, multimodal transport and the like.
