ZMP has been developing numerous robots since its establishment in 2001. In its history, what is currently the foundation of ZMP is the " Autonomous Driving Platform " which has been developing since 2008.
We have been working on "Autonomous Driving Platform" as core product and ZMP as our own pioneer of efforts toward practical application of Autonomous Driving.
This page introduces the progress of ZMP 's Autonomous Driving technology, as well as demonstrations conducted in the past and cases and initiatives that Autonomous Driving technology is introduced for commercialization.
The three main strengths that support "ZMP Autonomous Driving technology"
ZMP which has the background of the development of Autonomous Driving technology, began the development of Autonomous Driving in 2008 and has been developing Autonomous Driving technology for more than 10 years. Along with developing technology, we have been focusing on promoting environmental improvement aiming at a society where technological improvement and Autonomous Driving are accepted by performing many public road demonstration experiments.
Today, we are constantly doing automated driving technology development not only for hardware that enables autonomous operation for commercial operation but also for software to handle that machine.
Below, we will introduce the three main strengths mentioned above through past achievements and examples.
Autonomous Driving development for more than 10 years
History of ZMP in Autonomous Driving development
Autonomous Driving development of ZMP has over 10 years experience since 2008, the first Autonomous Driving venture in Japan.
As a platform to develop Autonomous Driving, we have offered RoboCar series which can be used properly according to the application, such as radio controlled car size RoboCar 1/10 and minivan type test vehicle RoboCar MiniVan.
Demonstration experiment on Autonomous Driving - Approach for driving test
ZMP has conducted various demonstration experiments aiming at practical application of Autonomous Driving.
On the other hand, we are offering vehicles as a base vehicle for demonstration experiments conducted in Japan.
Below is an introduction of the initiatives.
Achievement record of Autonomous Driving technology
As an introduction record of the past automatic operation development platform,
It has been utilized in various fields as a development tool to support accelerated development of Autonomous Driving / ADAS technology.
And now we are developing not only as a tool to support development but also for commercialization (service conversion) using Autonomous Driving.
Introduction to Autonomous Driving development platform RoboCar series use case
Finally, as an introduction to the use case we will introduce examples of actually introducing and utilizing ZMP's Autonomous Driving vehicle platform.
Introduction to Autonomous Driving software platform IZAC use case
The only company that consistently develops hardware and software development for Autonomous Driving
In order to realize the commercialization of Autonomous Driving, not only the hardware of the vehicle but also the software to handle the recognition and judgment of Autonomous Driving is important.
ZMP accumulates the four technologies necessary for performing Autonomous Driving service as a platform, provides multiple integrated technologies and is the only company that can consistently carry out comprehensive development including Autonomous Driving hardware and software on its own.
Four technologies and configurations that realize Autonomous Driving will be explained below.
Product group that realizes Autonomous Driving technology
The following product groups are core products that make up ZMP Autonomous Driving technology. We are aiming at providing Autonomous Driving technology and service realization in accordance with the customers.
At ZMP, we offer new products and services that make use of these achievements and know-how and utilizing Autonomous Driving techniques.
Services that make full use of synchronous measurement and data analysis of multiple sensors
As a service utilizing synchronous data measurement and analysis technology of multiple sensors in the development of Autonomous Driving, we provide RoboTest serving as a running data acquisition solution.
Travel data measurement service RoboTest
Supports system construction & measurement of running data required for ADAS / Autonomous Driving development
