Description/Abstract

This paper summarizes a report on Japanese transport telematics written as a result of a contract between the authors and DG XIII of the Commission of the European Union. The assignment principally covered freight transport and urban traffic management, but the work extended in other fields as well. As part of this work, we organized a technical tour in Japan during which we had meetings and visited a number of key Japanese establishments and experts who informed us about the state-of-the-art and current thinking. Previous missions had established a fairly good knowledge of the state of affairs in Japan in other areas. Freight transport (and to a certain extent public transport) were the main areas where information was scarce. Any comments or recommendations in this report are those of the authors themselves and do not express official EC views.
