ITS R&D includes wide variety of research area such as mechanical engineering, road engineering, traffic engineering, information and communication engineering, and electrical engineering. In spite of initiatives across the variety of engineering is essential to solve the problems of practical social systems, it is difficult to collaborate among engineering. Based on the joint research of the Japan Society of Civil Engineers and the Institute of Electrical Engineers held at the Great East Japan Earthquake, this paper discusses about necessity of collaboration among academies on ITS R&D. International collaboration is also important for ITS R&D. Asian countries could share the same problems and solutions, since many of mega cities exist in Asia region and they suffers from heavy traffics. Therefore, we need to discuss the common solution to our problems.
