Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar® MV 2
for the research and development of Autonomous Driving technology at Doshisha University Mobility Research Center

Below, we introduce examples of introduction of the Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar® MV 2.
RoboCar® MV 2 introduced to Doshisha University
The Doshisha University Mobility Research Center has developed a paradigm shift in mobility in the advanced countries that have entered an aging society, and in developing countries where traffic obstacles and environmental deterioration have progressed due to the spread of motorization. Therefore, it is necessary to integrate sensing, automatic control and robot technology based on information and communication technology. On the other hand, it is also essential to release the system to society and consider the system taking into consideration, the construction of complementary relations between conventional transportation means such as cars and future mobility. The Research Center will closely collaborate and integrate information systems, control systems, and social systems, and consider bio-information, and research and develop new technologies to realize mobility transformation for the future and disseminate them to society.
A running experiment
In 2014, it was adopted as "Evolutionary Adaptive Motor Driver System Driver - In-the-Loop Research Base" for the Private University Strategic Research Base Formation Support Project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and "Software Agent Architecture "Active safety sensing and control technology supporting elderly drivers", "Human biological information multidimensional analysis technology for constructing driving behavior models of elderly people", "Sensor information communication platform considering reliability and safety". We conduct research, field trials, and industry, government and academia collaboration.

Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar® MV2

The RoboCar® MV2 is based on the "COMS", an ultra-compact electric vehicle manufactured by Toyota Auto Body. This is an experimental ultra-compact electric vehicle that can control steering, accelerator and brake by computer.
A library that can control vehicle speed, brakes, steering wheel operations, etc. is available, so users can smoothly research and develop applications such as obstacle avoidance, Autonomous Driving, and remote control.
It is used for research and development of driving support technology and preventive safety technology, and evaluation of in-house products and technology at research institutions such as automobile and parts manufacturers and universities.

· Control of steering, accelerator and brake
· User program can be executed by ZMP proprietary controller
· Switchable between Automatic control mode and Manual mode
