DENSO Signs an MOU with Thai ITS Association to Ease Traffic Congestion and
Reduce CO2 Emissions
Kariya, Japan, July 2, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corporation and DENSO
International Asia Co. Ltd. (DIAT), a DENSO group company in Thailand, has
signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in February 2014, with Thai
Intelligent Transport System (ITS). This collaboration launched in March 2014
and will continue until March 2015. Its goal is to ease traffic congestion
through the use of Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X)
In large cities like Bangkok, the number of vehicles has increased
dramatically, which has also resulted in an increase in traffic congestion and
accidents. There have been growing expectations for the use of V2X
communications among governments and car users to help alleviate traffic
congestion and prevent accidents within Thailand.
DENSO Corporation, DIAT and Thai ITS will collaborate their research efforts
to gather wireless data on urban streets, as well as evaluate and analyze
information systems that are commercialized in Japan to determine its
adaptability to the traffic conditions of Thailand. The results of the project
will be used in formulating future ITS policies in Thailand.
DENSO began developing wireless communication devices in 2003, which are the
main components of V2X communications. Performance of V2X has been tested using
vehicles on simulated urban streets. DENSO has supplied in-vehicle units, which
represent the development results of joint demonstration experiments, by
automakers and governmental organizations in Japan, the U.S. and Europe. DENSO
remains committed to introducing V2X communications, helping to reduce CO2
emissions, reducing traffic congestion and minimizing traffic accidents.

leading global automotive supplier of advanced technology, systems and
