Self-Driving Vehicles Testing and Operation on Public Roads in Taiwan

Time / Place:

⏱️ 10/7 (Thur.) 21:10-21:35 at Online Track 1


The self-driving vehicle team at MMSL, ITRI completed all requested tests at Taiwan Car Lab in Tainan in July 2019 and obtained the first permission to test self-driving vehicles on public roads in Hsinchu, Taiwan in September 2019.

The team also obtained the permissions to test self-driving buses in Taichung in October 2020 and has completed the first stage operation verification in November 2020.

This talk will describe the experiences and lessons learned from over one year public road testing and operations of self-driving vehicles in Taiwan.
