Special Interest Group of
Intelligent Transport Systems (SIGITS)

on Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ)

The automobile engineering has a history of more than 100 years. Nowadays, vehicles play more important roles from the viewpoint of our life style and transportation systems. In this situation, the increase of automobile traffic causes many problems such as the traffic congestion, the accident and the environment hazard. To solve these various traffic problems, the promotion of ITS(Intelligent Transport Systems) is greatly expected. The primary focus of SIGITS is to provide such a new traffic system to be created by utilizing state-of-the-art information and telecommunications technologies.
