As a center of mobile multimedia of the 21st century, it is very much looking forward to explosion of R&D and business of the next generation of mobile communication systems and the ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) because ITS will enable information-oriented in the field of the road, traffic and vehicles, by using the most advanced technologies of mobile communications and devices, for the various purposes such as decrease of the traffic accident, the reduction of traffic jam, the increase in efficiency of the logistics and the harmony with the earth environment. This invited paper will first briefly introduce evolution of mobile communications and ITS in ministries, industries and academia in Japan. Then core communication technologies for ITS will be overviewed such as spread spectrum CDMA, adaptive antenna array, and software radio or software defined radio. Demands of SoC (System on a Chip) to carry out the core technologies will be addressed.
