Auto Taxi

ZMP is pursuing technology development and demonstration experiment aiming at realization of unmanned autonomous travelling taxi "Auto Taxi" in 2020.

The Auto Taxi is equipped with sensors such as cameras and lasers and an autonomous driving computer IZAC (Isaac) on an automated driving vehicle RoboCar MiniVan based on a commercially available hybrid minivan, always keeping the situation of other surrounding cars and pedestrians. It can grasp and run safely and smoothly even in complex environment of public roads.
We started demonstration experiment of autonomous driving in the state of Aichi prefecture's public road in 2014, afterwards, traffic volume is extremely high toward Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, where our office is located, and now to 2020.We develop and verify functions such as lane change and intersection ,right turn and turn in many traffic environment of Odaiba etc.
