    ITRI to roll out self-driving vehicle by year’s end (2018/07/02)

    Soon it could get a lot easier to build a driverless car. After three-and-a-half years, Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute, or ITRI, has produced a sensor system that can be installed on a vehicle, allowing it to drive itself. This sophisticated sensor system uses a range of technologies to accurately navigate through bad weather and geographic obstacles. It can even read traffic signals, allowing a bus to find its own way to the bus lane. The first vehicle to use this system will debut at the end of the year.

    All by itself, this car slows to a complete stop when it detects a pedestrian up ahead. This marvel of engineering is Taiwan’s first and only self-driving car, brought to you by ITRI.

    The self-driving car is possible thanks to a sensor system installed on its roof and four sides. The system integrates radar, light detection and ranging, camera, and GPS technologies to create a road-worthy ride capable of handling all sorts of weather and traffic conditions.

    Light detection and ranging is good in that it lets car see farther, but it’s very easily affected by the weather. Radar is good in that weather is not an issue, but it’s not that accurate. So it’s about how to combine the different data from different sensors for different conditions.

    ITRI is also working on buses and commercial vehicles that can read traffic signals. On the road, these vehicles would be able to identify bus lanes and traffic signals. In heavy traffic, they would be able to precisely pinpoint the location of other cars and maintain a safe distance.

    ITRI President
    Our sensor system is definitely our strong suit. It enables the handling of chaotic traffic, including cars and scooters that break traffic rules.

    ITRI plans to roll out its self-driving mini bus by the end of the year, to coincide with the 2018 Taichung Flora Exposition. In the future, ITRI wants to adapt its sensor technology to a vast range of vehicles, both foreign and domestic, and drive growth in Taiwan’s industrial supply chain for driverless cars.
