Today very early in the morning a couple of voluntary Taiwan Observer reporters went to central Taipei to check an autonomous mini city bus that is currently being tested there. The test took place on a short stretch bus lane protected from both sides by concrete barriers on Xinyi rd. (信義路) between Fuxing South rd. (復興南路) and Dunhua South rd. (敦化南路).
After successfully ‘hunting down’ the Ghost bus(driverless bus) in question, which wasn’t difficult at all by the way, our reporters proceeded to broadcasting two Live streams from the scene at the same time:
‘Ghost Bus’ Stream #1
‘Ghost Bus’ Stream #2
And below there are few stills from another video:
These buses should soon be implemented as a part of public transportation in bigger cities. The company which develops the technology is 7StarLake Co., which hopes to continue testing the bus in Taipei, and have an even larger stretch of road to test the bus on.
