In developing automatic platooning of trucks as an energy-saving technology, the reliable driving of the platooned trucks is a primary objective for public implementation and future applications. At the same time, there is also an emergency requirement to ensure the safety of the driving experiment in the automatic platooning of trucks, including the(More)
Previously ITS system or ITS technology was aiming some of new brake through technologies. It is quite important for beginning of ITS. Currently ITS engineers need to consider more mass production aspect, such as less energy consumption, cost efficiency, system's redundancy and so on. However those are kind of difficult to be succeed at the same time.(More)
Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) issued a report titled "Next-Generation Vehicle and Fuel Initiative." In the report, METI laid out the idea of Japan pursuing efforts to become the world's most environmentally friendly motorized society as one measure of the initiative, and proposed building a low-carbon emission economy(More)
This paper proposes a road surface recognition system based on a “laser radar” (LIDER), which is used to detect a lane markings for application to an automatic platooning system for trucks. To ensure the safety of automatic driving, there is a need to recognize the road surface conditions (dry, wet, etc.). This system proposes an integrated(More)
