Self-driving Shuttle in Public Transportation System

8 June 2017

Time        : 0900- 1630

Venue      : In Our Time, B10 Warehouse, Kaohsiung Pier-2 Art Center

Organizer: Kaohsiung City Government; ICLEI; 7Starlake

Self-driving shuttle bus will operate in an urban enclosed area during the EcoMobility World Festival 2017 in Kaohsiung. Arrival of such autonomous and futuristic vehicles is revolutionary for Kaohsiung. However, legal issues, use area, urban planning environment and systems need to be tackled before the full potential of autonomous vehicles can be realized. This Forum will address this issues as many cities are testing the use of autonomous vehicles.
