The 2019 Taipei International Automobile Electronics Show, or Autotronics Taipei, is under way. The four-day event kicked off Thursday. It features the first Taiwan-made self-driving car and other smart vehicle-related devices.

The first Taiwan-made self-driving car can do more than just operate automatically. It is also able to go to a designated location to pick up passengers.

Economics Ministry official Lo Ta-sheng says Taiwan is ready for self-driving vehicles, with the necessary technology, rules, and regulations all in place.

The Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium introduced 23 vehicle-related research projects at the event. These include a smart road monitoring system. Among other things, this system helps drivers find available parking spaces. The system is already in place on a trial basis in six municipalities across Taiwan.

Another device on display is able to monitor drivers’ behavior. Engineer Huang Kai-yu says it monitors drivers’ face to judge whether they are tired. The purpose of the device is to reduce the number of road accidents.    [FULL  STORY]
