The 1992 Study Tour of Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) in Japan provided 15 transportation professionals with the opportunity to not only view specific advanced technologies applied to the surface transportation problems in some of the key metropolitan areas of Japan, but also to get a sense of how individual IVHS concepts "fit" in the social and economic fabric of Japan. The diversity of the group, in spite of the relatively small size, further enhanced the experience; the participants came from three countries (United States, France and the Netherlands), federal, regional, state and local governments, the private sector and academia. The tour participants visited 15 organizations in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. This report describes each visit, paying particular attention to the type of technology presented, highlights of the presentation, and key observations concerning the data presented. The names and contact information for each visit's host are also listed.
