Taiwan's first driverless minibus has hit the road on July 14, in a trial run in Changhua County, the local government said.
Dubbed "WinBus," the autonomous minibus will drive along a 7.5-kilometer route in Changhua Coastal Industrial Park in Lugang Township, the county government said.
Along the way, it will go past prominent landmarks such as Brand's Health Museum and Ribbon Museum, the Changhua County government said.
With all parts and components made in Taiwan, the WinBus was built by a chain of local industries, under the auspices of the Automotive Research and Testing Center (ARTC), Taiwan's leading transportation-vehicle testing and R&D institute. Financial and technological support was provided by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).
