“It felt like a regular car and was very stable,” said Mr. Huang, one of the test volunteers.


EZ10 is a Level 4 self-driving bus belonging to the A.I. driverless vehicle R&D team, which was established by NTU in collaboration with 7Starlake (喜門史塔雷克) late in May.

The automation of cars can be classified into six levels, ranging from level 0 to 5, according to SAE International. Level 4 is high automation, meaning that the driver does not need to attend to the car while it is moving.

From Saturday to July 13, EZ10 will undergo the first stage of test driving in a small-scale enclosed area at NTU in order to measure its stability and adaptability.    [FULL  STORY]
