METI and MIIT decided to jointly hold the First Japan-China Joint Public-Private Seminar on Autonomous Driving on October 12 (Fri.), 2018, in Tokyo.

At this test ride, ZMP and three domestic car manufacturers participated. ZMP used a proprietary Autonomous Driving vehicle RoboCar® MiniVan and tried on the route of approximately 4 kilometers, starting from Odaiba's Grand Nikko Tokyo Daiba with Luo Wen's deputy general manager and staff of the same department.We explained them about the advanced Autonomous Driving technology and the world's first Autonomous Driving service demonstration efforts on public roads of taxis.

ZMP aims to put into practical use of Autonomous Driving taxis in 2020. We along with Hinomaru Kotsu conducted public road demonstration experiments of the world's first Autonomous Driving taxi from August 27, 2018 to September 8, 2018.Based on these efforts,who want to utilize autonomous operation for MaaS (Mobility as a Service) combining mobility and service,we provide autonomous operation system for service development and verification as "autonomous operation platform".

ZMP aims to commercialize an Autonomous Driving taxi by demonstrating service on public roads and by contributing an Autonomous Driving platform, we will contribute to customer's Autonomous Driving related technology and service development.
