Automated driving demonstration
for local community(e-COM10)


In the aging society, it is difficult to support the mobility of tourists and local residents due to lack of personnel. In this demonstration, we will conduct public transportation experiences using "low speed electric community bus" aiming at social implementation of autonomous driving which are focusing "mobility in depopulated areas", "mobility to sightseeing spots", and " transportation of people and goods".

What is necessary for the automatic driving technology to spread to society in the Asia-Pacific region?
What kind of scene should be applied and what should be addressed to realize that?
Hoping for the opportunity to think about the above, we will perform level 3 automatic driving by using public roads around the venue.

This demonstration will be carried out by Gunma University, Center for Research on Adoption of NextGen Transportation Systems, which tackles research, development and advanced human resources development for "social implementation" of the next generation mobility system.

12: 30 ~ May 8th, 9: 00-18: 00 May 9, 9: 00-15: 30 May 10
(* May 10 includes citizen participation)
