AIRO Inc. (hereinafter “AIRO”), a joint venture of Marubeni Corporation (hereinafter “Marubeni”) and ZMP Inc. (hereinafter “ZMP”), carried out a demonstration test of Autonomous vehicle in the airport restricted area from March 18 to March 20, 2019.

Below is an overview of the demonstration test.

Outline of the demonstration test

In this demonstration test, we used RoboCar® Mini EV Bus developed by ZMP and took the route that is assumed to transport passengers by bus. The RoboCar® Mini EV Bus is a vehicle based on the ANKAI’S EV (electric car) bus that has been newly added to ZMP's Robocar lineup and this demonstration test will be the first in Japan.

AIRO Inc. carried out a demonstration test of Autonomous vehicle in the airport restricted area. We conducted the test using Autonomous driving vehicle RoboCar® Mini EV Bus developed by ZMP.

Through this demonstration test, ZMP confirms issues and collects data for practical use of Autonomous vehicles in the airport restricted area and promotes efforts for commercialization and sales of Autonomous vehicles and ancillary services.​ ​
