|A street car and a vehicle in Hiroshima|
In addition to the direct communications between a vehicle and a street car, a vehicle will load a system that detects independently the moves of surrounding vehicles and street cars with the help of built-in sensors. The university will present the experiment results in the world conference of intelligent transport systems scheduled for coming October in Tokyo. In Hiroshima, about 150,000 people use the street car daily. Street cars are increasing the presence in the planning of urban development, and the necessity of a technology to prevent a collision between a vehicle and a street car is growing.
