Deployment Strategy for Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems in Japan: Toward ETC 2.0

For widespread deployment of intelligent transport systems (ITS), the key is integration of various ITS services including existing legacy services. In 2011, ITS Spot Service was launched in Japan. A driver who installs an ITS Spot-compatible on-board unit can enjoy several mobility services, safe driving assistance services, and the conventional ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) service. In three years, the number of ITS Spot Service users has exceeded 500,000. In September 2014, the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism announced its new vision for evolving ITS Spot Service to "ETC 2.0." This paper describes the deployment strategy, practical approach, and achievements of the Cooperative ITS service in Japan.
