The RoboCar® Mini EV Bus is based on a small electric bus.
This is a vehicle device for Autonomous Driving that incorporates the control device of ZMP so that control can be performed by the user inputting control signals from an external device (PC or dedicated device).
The RoboCar® Mini EV Bus can take advantage of the features of the bus and transport more people automatically while keeping the features of the RoboCar® series.
Like the RoboCar® MiniVan / SUV, RoboCar® Mini EV Bus can acquire sensor information installed in the base vehicle via the in-vehicle network CAN (Control Area Network), and ZMP's unique controller enables steering, acceleration and braking.
Normally, the vehicle controlled by the driver's operation (accelerator / brake, turning the steering wheel) can be controlled from the user's computer or special equipment. It can be used as a vehicle platform at the service site.
