UTMS SUBSYSTEMS IN JAPAN

UTMS (universal traffic management systems), one of intelligent transportation systems (ITS)-related projects for effective traffic management in Japan, consists of integrated traffic control systems (ITCS) and five other subsystems. ITCS aims at obtaining more optimal traffic flow, using an infrared vehicle detector, which is a key infrastructure for UTMS, and plans to arrange widely over major road networks in the near future. Public transportation priority systems (PTPS), one of the six UTMS subsystems, have been designed to make the public transportation system more attractive for people by using both the new and existing information infrastructures. Regarding advanced mobile information systems (AMIS), it has a target of transmitting traffic information more broadly, rapidly, and accurately to motorists. Other than three outlined above, UTMS includes such subsystems as dynamic route guidance systems (DRGS), mobile operation control systems (MOCS), and environment protection management systems (EPMS). In this paper, the author describes an overall configuration of each subsystem, and procedures for introducing these subsystems into existing police traffic control centers, which currently prevail to every prefecture and large city nationwide. The results of experimental programs are also provided.
