Autonomous Driving taxi public road service demonstration

Autonomous Driving Taxi public road service trial video released on March 15, 2019

Promotional Movie released on September 4, 2018


Hinomaru Kotsu as a taxi operator and ZMP of Autonomous Driving technology jointly carried out public road service trials using the world's first Autonomous Driving taxi in Central Tokyo. By receiving a series of experiences such as Autonomous Driving taxi reservation, riding, and settlement using the user's own smartphone. It aims to give users a wide range of practical use images of commercial services of Autonomous Driving taxi in the near future.

About hardware that supports Autonomous Driving

· Autonomous Driving vehicle platform RoboCar® SUV
RoboCar® SUV is a product modified by program so that steering, accelerator and brake can be operated. It is based on SUV vehicles popular in taxis and hire services. With an additional option, it also supports emergency brakes and surround cameras.
· Autonomous Driving vehicle platform RoboCar® MiniVan
RoboCar® MiniVan is also a product that can handle steering, accelerator and brake by program in the same way. This product is utilized as the base vehicle of the demonstration experiment of Autonomous Driving carried out all over the country and it is a product which can be arbitrarily moved by the control algorithm developed.

RoboCar® MiniVan
Commercially available hybrid minivan based Autonomous Driving vehicle development platform

About software that supports Autonomous Driving

· Autonomous Driving control software IZAC®
IZAC® is a software platform for Autonomous Driving. By connecting and recognizing the sensor to a computer (PC) equipped with IZAC®, it becomes possible to control any machine by making decisions and controlling through the control components of IZAC®. Through IZAC® you can do all the cognition, judgment and operation necessary to move the machine.

About the Sensing system supporting Autonomous Driving

· Super high sensitivity stereo camera system RoboVision®2s
RoboVision®2s is a stereo camera that can easily acquire images in development-Image processing technology. It is introduced to more than 100 companies and universities, we also have software environment (sample software, software development kit) and contribute to the development using stereo camera
· Stereo camera system for Autonomous Driving RoboVision®3
RoboVision®3 is a camera which is equipped with the latest Sony COMS image sensor IMX390, two telephoto and wide angle stereo cameras, maximum measuring distance of 150 m, horizontal viewing angle of 100°. It can be used for the detection of oncoming vehicles from a distance when turning right at the intersection which was difficult in the past and for wide detection of pedestrians and vehicles at the intersection right turn.
· 360° surrounding image measurement Surround RoboVision®
"Surround RoboVision®" consists of 4 stereo cameras of 2 eyes. Utilizing this product, you can acquire images synchronized on time with 4 stereo cameras at maximum 30 fps. This is a product that can be applied to distance measurement of peripheral objects using parallax from the measured stereo camera image and development of object detection algorithm.
