Driverless Electric Buses to Debut in Kaohsiung, 2017




Driverless electric buses will ply a route around Kaohsiung’s Hamaxing District in October 2017, when Kaohsiung City hosts EcoMobility World Festival 2017.

The district will be closed to private vehicles for the month of October, as Kaohsiung City, and exhibitors from around the world showcase environmental and people-friendly forms of urban transportation.

The French-made NAVYA ARMA is a driverless electric vehicle that can accommodate up to 15 passengers and travel up to 45 kilometers per hour, while avoiding obstacles and pedestrians.

Hamaxing, also known as Hamasen, is a historic port district of Kaohsiung City which gained importance during the Japanese colonial era. It is adjacent to Ape Hill, and a pedestrian/cycling tunnel connects it to Sun Yat-sen University.

The buses will make an approximately 2 kilometer circuit of the district.

高雄無人駕駛小巴 上路測試

〔記者葛祐豪/高雄報導〕高雄市率先全台引進無人駕駛小巴,今天下午在駁二特區上路測試,引起許多民眾圍觀,高市交通局表示將在10月哈瑪星的生態交通全球盛典,開放民眾試乘。
這台Easymile無人小巴,是由科技業者喜門史塔雷克(7starlake)、無人車製造商Easymile製造,據了解,連同關稅算在內,1台要價超過台幣千萬元。
無人駕駛小巴今天運抵高雄,下午在駁二藝術特區進行測試,緩緩開了不到1公里路程,引起路人驚嘆,好奇無人駕駛車輛是如何操控?
業者表示,每台無人駕駛小巴配置8顆LIDAR(光達),也可稱為雷射測距儀,並有2具攝影機、GPS定位系統等,行駛途中一旦感測到障礙物,就會立即自動減速或暫停。
無人駕駛小巴車內共有6個座位,加上站位共可載客16人,採用鋰離子電池充電,速度最高每小時20公里。
高雄市交通局指出,今年10月,「生態交通全球盛典」在哈瑪星舉行1個月,無人小巴將擔任社區巡迴接駁車,行駛距離約2.5公里。
由於道路交通管理條例並沒有無人駕駛車輛的規範,因此這台無人駕駛小巴無法行駛混合車道,只能走專用車道,高雄市交通局也呼籲中央趕緊修法,讓無人駕駛車輛能實際上路。
