ZMP, public road demonstration experiment of remote autonomous operation system in Tokyo for realizing unmanned taxi in 2020
ZMP, for the realization of an unmanned taxi in 2020
Conduct public road demonstration experiment of remote type Autonomous Driving system in Tokyo
- Public public event held jointly with Nippon Kayaku Miraikan -
ZMP Co., Ltd. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo: CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi, hereinafter referred to as ZMP)
We will conduct public road demonstration experiment of remote type Autonomous Driving system in Tokyo.
We started a demonstration experiment of Autonomous Driving in the state of the driver riding in Aichi prefecture public road in 2014, and then there is a very large traffic volume towards Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo office where our office is located, and 2020 We have developed and verified functions such as lane change and intersection right / left turn in the traffic environment of Odaiba etc. Based on the criteria of handling application for road use permission related to public road demonstration experiment of remote Autonomous Driving system released from the National Police Agency in June this year, We will conduct a public road demonstration experiment with no driver riding in the seat. At the same time, in collaboration with the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, we will hold an event for the general public listening to the voice of citizens about unmanned Autonomous Driving passenger service.
In June this year, we started collaborating with Hinomaru Traffic Co., Ltd. to realize autonomous taxi, we are developing development and demonstration of services along with development of autonomous driving technology. Utilizing the findings obtained from this demonstration experiment, we will aim to realize an unmanned taxi in 2020 by further technical development and improvement of safety.
