Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program (SIP)/Large-scale Field Operational Test for Automated Driving Systems

Strategic Innovation Promotion Program (SIP) logo

Portal site for “Large-scale Field Operational Test for Automated Driving Systems” led by the Cabinet Office of the Government of Japan in collaboration with related ministries and organizations.


Since FY2014, SIP-adus have conducted research and development on the common challenges that require a joint industry-academia-government undertaking (cooperative area) under the SIP Automated Driving System with the aim of reducing traffic accidents and traffic congestion, realizing the next-generation urban transport system, and so on through the early rollout and widespread adoption of an automated driving system.

From FY2016, SIP-adus have been deliberating and conducting development with a focus on five particularly important technological fields (dynamic map, HMI (human machine interface), information security, pedestrian accidents reduction, and next-generation urban transportation) that have been identified.

- Five Particularly Important Technological Fields

  1. Dynamic Map
  2. HMI (Human Machine Interface)
  3. Information Security
  4. Pedestrian Accidents Reduction
  5. Next-generation Urban Transportation

Message from Organizer

"In Pursuit of a Transport Society That Brings Smiles to Everyone"
Undertaking activities with the goal of reducing traffic congestion, reducing traffic accident fatalities, and realizing, popularizing and deploying the automated driving system, as a result of utilizing automated driving technologies.

To accelerate the integration and realization of research and development and identify concrete issues for the realization of automated driving systems as well as to foster social acceptance, it was decided to implement a large-scale field operational test on public roads such as expressways and general roads beginning in the fall of 2017.
