ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) wireless communications system has been developing based on the leading edge ICT (Information Communication Technologies) in Japan. The comfort driving systems for example VICS (Vehicular Information Communication system), ETC (Electronic Toll Collection), Telematics has already become popular and the safety driving support systems, such as ASV (Advanced Safety Vehicle) and SMARTWAY have been scheduled for introduction in the near future. However, there are many residual issues in the comfort driving system because of the existence of the traffic jam and the interest of the economical cars in the world. Moreover, the acceleration of the development of the Smart Grid and EV (Electric Vehicle) would affect the future development of the ITS wireless communications system. In this paper, it is clarified that the future development should be advanced considering the one of the basic business rule of 'market-in and product-out'.
