This is a report on the latest SIP-adus activities. SIP-adus is a five-year research program on connected and automated driving led by the Japanese government that began in 2014. Beginning in 2016, the project prioritized five themes (Dynamic Map, human-machine interfaces (HMI), cyber security, pedestrian collision reduction, and next-generation transport). Large-scale field operational tests started in October 2017 around Tokyo area in order to integrate and evaluate achievements. The tests are open to global entities, and more than 20 entities have participated to date.
