Auto taxi®

ZMP is pursuing technology development and demonstration test 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® on an automated driving vehicle RoboCar® MiniVan based on a commercially available hybrid minivan, always keeping track of other surrounding cars and pedestrians. It can grasp and run safely and smoothly even in complex environment of public roads.

We started demonstration test of Autonomous Driving in the state of Aichi prefecture public road in 2014. Now,we develop and verify functions such as lane change and intersection right / left turns in the traffic environment of Odaiba, Roppongi, Otemachi etc.

Through various demonstration tests and technological development, it is possible to control right and left turns at large intersections, lane change, signal detection, travel control such as stopping at a taxi pool, reservation system required for taxi / dispatch service, traveling vehicle management system.

In July 2018 Hinomaru Kotsu as a taxi operator and ZMP of Autonomous Driving technology jointly carried out public road service trials using the world's first Autonomous Driving taxi in Central Tokyo.

By receiving a series of experiences such as Autonomous Driving taxi reservation, riding, and settlement using the user's own smartphone. It aims to give users a wide range of practical use images of commercial services of Autonomous Driving taxi in the near future.

Concept movie

ZMP is pursuing technology development and demonstration test while drawing a society in which future Autonomous Driving has been put into practical use.
The following is a concept movie, 'HOTARU (Fire Fly)' of the society in which Autonomous Driving is realized.

At ZMP, we provide not only verification experiment but also service utilizing Autonomous Driving technology.

In ZMP to realize Auto taxi,we have developed a system for Autonomous Driving.
We are offering an " Autonomous Driving platform" to business operators such as taxi operators aiming to commercialize MaaS nationwide.

The service includes:
Service ① Autonomously driven vehicle RoboCarC series
Service ② Autonomous driving Computer IZAC®
Service ③ Autonomous Driving Vehicle management system (FMS)

In addition, we also handle operations such as operation and monitoring of the Autonomous Driving platform, so that service operators can smoothly conduct development and verification utilizing this.

Software supporting Autonomous Driving

Autonomous Driving control software IZAC®

IZAC® is a software platform for Autonomous driving. By connecting and recognizing the sensor to a computer (PC) equipped with IZAC®, it becomes possible to control any machine by making decisions and controlling through the control components of IZAC®.​ ​

Through IZAC®, you can do all the cognition, judgment and operation necessary to move the machine.
It is a key component that can apply Autonomous Driving to vehicles and machines other than automobiles.
