5GAA Workshop Explores Future of Next-Generation ITS in Japan

The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) is pleased to announce its upcoming workshop, ‘Enabling New Services with Next Generation ITS in Japan,’ scheduled for February 1st in Tokyo. The event will take place at the Hilton Tokyo from 9 AM (JST).

In response to the recent release of Japan’s Frequency Reorganisation Plan by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, assigning the 5.9 GHz spectrum to V2X for next-generation ITS, this workshop aims to explore the potential implications and opportunities. 5GAA welcomes the decision, which aligns with global spectrum allocation.

The workshop will delve beyond technicalities, offering insights into recent government activities, ongoing development efforts, and expectations for new ITS in Japan. It will also serve as a convergence point for local stakeholders and global industry players, encouraging collaboration and setting the stage for a fruitful discussion Japan’s future in this domain.

The workshop will take place in the context of 5GAA’s 29th Meeting Week, a periodic opportunity for members to meet face-to-face and participate in working sessions and diverse side activities – this time taking place in Tokyo.

Invitations for this collaborative dialogue will be distributed individually. For further information or general inquiries, please contact liaison@5gaa.org.
