-Aiming for passenger transportation by 2020 with RoboCar® Mini EV Bus-
ZMP Inc. in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo (CEO, Hisashi Taniguchi, hereinafter ZMP) released the video of the demonstration experiment of an Autonomous vehicle within the Chubu International Airport Restricted Area carried out from March 18 to March 20, 2019.
In this demonstration experiment, 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. We conducted the test using Autonomous driving vehicle RoboCar® Mini EV Bus developed by ZMP.
The RoboCar® Mini EV Bus, an Autonomous driving vehicle developed by ZMP 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.
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.
