Advanced Smart Mobility sought positioning technology for vehicular localization.

Japan has recently faced a severe driver shortage in their public mass transportation systems. To solve this challenge, they are looking to create a smart public transportation system, including a significant component of autonomous buses and trucks.

To meet this challenge, Advanced Smart Mobility, in collaboration with the University of Tokyo, is conducting research on autonomous driving and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) geared toward large trucks and buses.
