The Development of a Narrow Road Driving Support System

In Kochi prefecture, people’s daily lives and regional activities are highly dependent on road transportation, but the road extension rate remains low and any rapid increase is difficult because of the cost. Under these circumstances, the roads in mountainous areas are so narrow that cars coming in opposite directions can't pass smoothly. Also, many unimproved sections of road still remain, and are an increased risk for the occurrence of accidents. We have recently developed a low cost and highly reliable narrow road driving support system, for driving on unimproved narrow roads in such mountainous areas.
