A driverless minibus will undergo a trial run in Taipei in the early hours of the morning
from August 1st to 5th.
Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je said Thursday that members of the public should not be worried if they see the driverless EZ10 bus between 1 and 4 am. He said the test will take place on a short bus lane section of one of the city’s main thoroughfares.
Ko said, “This time we’re taking [the bus] onto the road for a test in real conditions. We will be using the bus lane on Xinyi Road to test the driverless bus between 1 and 4 in the morning. So if city residents see a bus moving about without a driver on Xinyi Road between 1 and 4 in the morning, don’t worry, don’t be scared.”
The early hours of the morning have been chosen for the test run as no regular buses will be operating during that time. [FULL STORY]
