Taiwan conducts more road tests of self-driving bus
- October 25, 2017

A self-driving bus, EZ10, undergoes road tests in Changhua County, western Taiwan, 25 October 2017. The tests on a closed-off road will run for five days to let local people ride the bus and to allow the vehicle's computer to do mapping of the road and get familiar with road conditions and react to incidents. EZ10 can hold 12 passengers and runs on battery. With one charge, it can run at maximum 40 km per hour for 14 hours. The bus is made by French Easymile company and uses US-made light sensors and Taiwan-made computer system. Taiwan's 7Starlake Co plans to launch the driverless bus in enclosed areas like industrial park, school campus or cultural center to serve as community bus or shuttle bus.
