NAC2022 NARLabs & NSTDA Conference on Research: Application for Autonomous Vehicles


Taiwan’s first closed proving ground for self-driving cars “Taiwan CAR Lab” was inaugurated in Tainan’s Salun Green Energy Technology Demonstration Site in February 2019.

It can provide autonomous cars or medium-sized buses to test their obstacle detection or avoidance capabilities in this enclosed area for mixed traffic flow and pedestrian crossroads, which are common traffic accident scenarios in Taiwan.
National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA)through EECi ARIPOLIS has been systematically working with local and international companies to explore various means and platforms to assist the connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) industry in Thailand. In recognition of the background and mutual interests, CAR Lab, EECi with Department of Science Service (DSS)’s support work together to promote CAV research and development in Thailand. The invited speakers for today’s event are from academics and industry, to share their results for HD MAP application, autonomous simulation, operation experience, and local traffic scenarios.
