Taiwan's first unmanned bus EZ10 had its first test drive in campus. This imported French bus can operate from six to eight hours after a single charge. The maximum capacity for the bus is 12 passengers. The bus is under test in National Taiwan University, researchers are collecting data for transportation in closed routes.


Taiwan's first unmanned small shuttle bus had its first test drive at National Taiwan University. This self-driving shuttle bus EZ10 has six passenger seats, it automatically stops at every stop in the campus with automated functions of door opening and closing.

==MR. CHU passenger==
When the car stops on curb, it doesn't need any sign or any guidance. It slowly stops at curb like that. I feel its positioning and control system are not bad.

==MISS CHANG passenger==
I don't know its anti-collision capability, but I personally feel the bus is stable enough.

In addition to its automation, the bus is equipped with GPS positioning system, camera, and laser radar detecting devices. The devices are able to detect 50 meters ahead of any blocking object. The bus will slow down and operate to a full stop for avoiding collision.

==TING YEN-YUN Unmanned Vehicle Developer==
The shuttle is capable of detecting anything within a radius of 50 meters. When the car detects an object ahead of it, the bus will adjust its speed according to the object's moving speed. For example, if a bicycle or motorcycle suddenly moving out from right or left side, the unmanned bus can make an emergency braking within a definite moment.

In recent years the United States and Singapore have been investing in researches for unmanned technology. The National Taiwan University has been collaborating with private enterprise in integrating software and hardware of unmanned technology. They are collecting data from the unmanned shuttle bus, aiming to develop shuttle buses for transportation on closed routes at hospital and campus.

台灣第一輛無人駕駛巴士EZ10,在今天上午,進行試營運。這輛從法國引進的無人駕駛巴士,每充電一次,可以行駛6到8小時不等,一次最多可搭載12名乘客。現階段,在台大、水源校區開放試乘,將蒐集每次運行的相關數據、繼續進行研究,未來可望能廣泛運用在「封閉式」的路線運行。

全台灣第一輛無人駕駛小巴,今天上午在台大水源校區,開放試乘。紅白外觀、看起來小巧可愛的六人座小巴EZ10,行駛在校園內,每到一站,都能「自動」把車靠路邊停、「自動」開關門。

==民眾 朱先生==
像靠邊停的時候
它不需要有任何的標示
或者是任何的指引
它就會自己慢慢的停到路邊去 這樣子
那感覺 它的定位跟它的那個
控制上 做得蠻不錯的

==民眾 張小姐==
因為我也不知道
它的防撞測試之類的
可是我自己覺得 它算是挺穩的

不只上下車能自動化,這輛無人駕駛小巴,車上設有GPS定位系統、攝影機、還有車身上的激光雷達等偵測裝置,就算前方,突然有人站在那裡、擋住路線了,在距離大約50公尺的時候,就能偵測到、進而放慢速度、停下來,防止撞擊。

==無人車業者 丁彥允==
可以整個監測
整個半徑範圍
50公尺以內所有的物體
所以它在偵測到物件的時候
可以根據它的移動速度 來調整車速
甚至如果說是有 從左邊或右邊
突然疾行出來的 腳踏車或摩托車
都可以在一定的時間內 緊急剎車


類似的無人駕駛技術,近幾年,美國、新加坡等地都陸續投入研發。台大和業者產學合作,整合硬體和台灣研發的軟體,會在試營運期間,蒐集小巴運行的相關數據,好讓技術能更加成熟,未來可望推廣到封閉式路線,像醫院、學校等運輸路線使用。
