Digital Map-linked Driving Support Services, a type of service which will realize Smartway, is anintelligent transportation systems ( IT)S project of the Government of Japan. Digital map data which contributes to safe driving is stored in on-board car navigation systems, and based on these data, the system provides curve entry speed alerts and accident-prone points information to drivers according to their vehicle traveling speed. This paper provides an overview and the results of proving tests and on-road tests conducted on the Metropolitan Expressway in 2007 to verify the effectiveness of this service, and a report on challenges which must be overcome to deploy this service on expressways in Japan.
