Toyota develops onboard DSRC unit

Toyota plans to offer the DSRC unit in Japan on a new vehicle model to be launched soon.

The nav system-linked DSRC unit, through the use of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies (including Japan's electronic toll collection framework) receives a wide range of traffic data via vehicle-infrastructure communications and provides the information to highway drivers in visual and audio formats.

It alerts drivers to obstacles they cannot see on the road ahead around curves, such as stopped vehicles and traffic congestion, as well as merging vehicles.

It also provides information on the driver's current location, highway on- and off-ramps and depicts simplified highway signs.
