At the Saitama Institute of Technology we celebrated the 40th anniversary of our foundation in 2016 and have been building a manufacturing research center and promoting R & D on Autonomous Driving as a next-generation automobile project. From October 2017, it was the only private university to participate in the SIP (Strategic Innovation Creation Program) of the Cabinet Office and we are carrying out demonstration experiments on Autonomous Driving by public roads in Odaiba.
Starting in December 2017 Saitama Prefecture in Fukaya city, Saitama prefecture's first public road demonstration experiment is started for the purpose of training autonomous driving related industries useful for human resource development and town planning.This demonstration experiment will be continued until March 2019.

Please refer to the press release of Saitama Institute of Technology for details of the demonstration experiment.

The experimental vehicle in this demonstration experiment is utilized by RoboCar® HV which is ZMP's Autonomous Driving development platform. RoboCar ® HV is an Autonomous Driving development platform modified on the basis of a commercially available hybrid car so that the vehicle can be controlled from an external computer. The user can easily control the vehicle with the sample program installed on the attached PC. Users can also control vehicles from their own computers using information on CAN (Control Area Network) provided for communication with RoboCar®, and many of them involve Autonomous Driving and ADAS (advanced driving support system).

In addition to RoboCar ® HV introduced at Saitama Institute of Technology, ZMP offers RoboCar® MiniVan, a minivan based hybrid vehicle that has a large number of passengers and load capacity, and can mount a lot of passengers and experimental equipment during the experiment. For customers who wish to start the experiment at Autonomous Driving cheaply and quickly, We also offer "RoboCar® MiniVan Autoware package" with Autoware which is Autonomous Driving open source software".

We also offer RoboCar MiniVan public road travel package, RoboCar MiniVan public road experiment support package, ZMP's own Autonomous Driving computing platform "IZAC®", etc. We have been supporting many research institutions and companies promoting research and development of Autonomous Driving, such as demonstration experiments.We will continue to contribute to the improvement of Autonomous Driving technology through provision of Autonomous Driving development platform and support of demonstration experiment
