PRESENT STATE OF WIRELESS CARD RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND STANDARDIZATION ACTIVITIES IN JAPAN

It is expected that wireless card systems will be applied in many fields, including automation of highway toll gates and season-ticket gates on railways. These card systems are being studied by many organizations. In Japan, government discussion of the technical requirements of radio equipment for wireless cards in the Telecommunications Technology Council (TTC) for the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) began in October 1994 to settle on the technical requirements of wireless card systems. The Ministry of Construction is working on the research and development of nonstop automatic toll collection systems in collaboration with private enterprise. Private research, development, and standardization of wireless cards and other related work is being done by a nonprofit corporation called the Research and Development Center for Radio Systems (RCR) in cooperation with related organizations and manufacturers and other associations. In addition, the Association for Promotion of Practical Use of Wireless Cards was organized in December 1994 with the purpose of expediting the development and exploitation of wireless card systems. This paper provides an overview of ongoing research, development, and standardization of wireless cards in Japan.
