TOKYO -- The Japanese government and the European Union plan to connect their global positioning systems to speed up the development of autonomous driving technology.
If all goes as planned, Japan's Quasi-Zenith Satellite System and the EU's Galileo will be linked as early as 2018. The link will be a common digital language that the systems will use to transmit information. This will allow driverless cars and autoparts developed for the Japanese market to be shipped and used outside Japan.
