Story up to Autonomous Development
ZMP Corporation is a pioneer of autonomous driving technology development platform for cars.
We combine robot technology and automobile technology and contribute to safety, environment and labor saving of next-generation mobility.

2004: As robot specialized company , we ZMP began selling nuvo , a biped robot for home use.
2007:Began selling miuro,motorcycle autonomous mobile music robot. miuro includes sensing technology such as radar, camera and gyroscope.
    LiDARを用いたSLAM技術を使用しており、周囲の環境を認識して移動する技術を開発。
    上記の技術を新しい分野に生かすために、自動車運転の開発プラットフォームの開発を開始。
2009: Same size as miuro,successful automatic operation with 1/10 size RoboCar ® 1/10 of passenger cars,
    自動運転技術開発プラットフォームRoboCarシリーズ製品の販売を開始いたしました。

2011: With the development of autonomous driving technology development platform,
    人が搭乗して走行可能な、一人乗り EV トヨタ コムスをベース車両とした RoboCar ® MVを販売開始。
2012: In addition, we sell RoboCar ® HV with passenger car Toyota Prius as the base vehicle.
    2013年10月のITS世界会議、11月の第43回東京モーターショー2013で自動運転のデモを一般公開、一般市民の試乗体験を実施。
Even then, the automation level 4 (※ fully automated operation defined by the Japanese government in 2020 and the Road Traffic Safety Authority (NHTSA) of the US Department of Transportation, * All of the acceleration, steering and braking are performed by drivers, drivers are involved. We will continue to develop autonomous operation control at our company aiming to run in a state that does not do so and entrust safety operation and surrounding monitoring all to the system and outside.
Starting demonstration experiment of autonomous driving in public road since 2014. As an important step towards demonstration experiments by level 4, we conduct running tests in urban areas with high traffic volume in Tokyo.
From 2018 to 2019, we extend the level 4 demonstration area and aim to start autonomous operation service in 2020.

In ZMP, while drawing the "society in which autonomous operation has been put to practical use in the future" toward realization of autonomous driving taxi service in 2020.
We are working on the development of autonomous driving technology, taxi dispatch application and so on.
In addition, we are engaged in business development through service development,through our own autonomous driving control development and applying technology developed through technological development to products, which enables us to use it as a development tool for ADAS / autonomous operation.


RoboCar MiniVan public road experiment support package

 RoboCarとは、外部プログラムから車両のステアリング・アクセル・ブレーキが制御可能な加工がされた実験車両で、自動運転やADAS開発において車両のセットアップやプログラムから制御可能な車両製作の期間を削減し、開発期間の短縮にご活用いただける製品となっております。
 その中でもRoboCar MiniVanは、現在提供している最新の自動運転開発プラットフォームとして市販ハイブリッドミニバン トヨタエスティマハイブリッドをベース車両とし、車載ネットワークCAN(Control Area Network)を介してベース車両に搭載されているセンサ情報を取得でき、かつZMP独自のコントローラによって制御可能な研究開発向けの実験プラットフォーム車両です。
 昨今では、自社での自動運転開発技術を応用し自動運転走行による試験効率化や自動化へのカスタマイズ支援サービスなども行っております。
In addition, we are releasing the "RoboCar MiniVan Highway Experiment Support Package" for customers who are considering experiments on mobility services on public roads as a new service. This package integrates sensor data that senses the surroundings to RoboCar® MiniVan, an autonomous driving technology development platform based on a commercial vehicle hybrid minivan. There is also a service that allows you to run a designated course by using an experimental vehicle that performs autonomous driving.
自律移動・自動運転の技術を活用して様々なニーズにお応えいたします。

ZMPでは、2014年に「ホタル」という新しい社会システムのコンセプトを創出。現在は自動運転制御技術開発・サービスモデルの検討など、2020年の無人の自動走行タクシー「自動タクシー」の実現を目指し、技術開発と実証実験を進めています。
Autonomous DrivingTranslate​ ​Demonstration at Odaiba public road video
In ZMP, we are conducting a public highway driving experiment from January 2017 using RoboCar MiniVan, an autonomous driving vehicle development platform.
Today, for the realization of autonomous driving taxi service, it is also the area of ​​the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020 and the traffic volume is very high
We use the traffic environment of Odaiba to conduct driving tests including development and verification of functions such as lane change and intersection right / left turn.
