In Japan, as well as in America and Europe, Intelligent Vehicle Roadway Systems (IVRS) have been discussed in recent years in pursuit of effective and efficient ways to improve automobile traffic/transportation issues such as for safety, congestion or environmental protection. Particularly, Advance Vehicle Control Systems (AVCS) which provide headway or lateral control for collision avoidance have been focused on. Furthermore, Automated Vehicle/Highway Systems (AVHS) which will enable the realization of automated driving at over 100 km/h on an intelligent highway have been anticipated to solve traffic/transportation issues in the 21st century, even though considerably greater investment will be required for the construction of an intelligent infrastructure. A few more AVHS concepts have been already proposed by automotive makers and the governmental authorities. Toyota has been developing a prototype AVHS in order to accomplish fundamental technologies and system architectures.
