Tokyo airport offers the unmanned transport during 2020 Olympics

Arriving at Haneda airport in the Japanese capital next year will be able to ride from the plane to the terminal at a special unmanned Shuttle, but not on a regular Shuttle bus. On the eve of the Olympic games-2020 in Tokyo tested unmanned "minibuses". Six Japanese companies, including the national carrier ANA last week began a joint 10-day experiment using the prototype of an unmanned mini-bus, according to the portal Techxplore.com.

Last Tuesday, journalists were allowed to observe the first Autonomous unmanned mini-bus journey held in "safe mode" — on the driver's seat was the driver, ready at any moment to seize control for themselves. The first trip is an unmanned public transport was successful. The driver did not intervene in the automation during the trip.

"We hope that by the Olympics in Tokyo 2020 will be able to prepare and offer the services of unmanned buses", – said the head of the ANA Tadakatsu Yamaguchi.

The Vehicle is able to take on Board a maximum of 10 people and runs on a route between two terminals with speeds up to 30 kilometers per hour, using a GPS navigation system, and magnetic sensors installed along the route. About the cost of the project and the expected number of passengers the head of the project in the course of communication with journalists is not reported.

Japan hopes that the Olympic Games 2020 will allow the country to demonstrate the many technological advances. For example, not so long ago that the NEC (one of the largest manufacturers of electronic, computer and telecommunications equipment in the world) has developed a system of facial recognition that will mass be used in the course of the summer 2020 Olympic games and Paralympic games in Tokyo. Even previously talked about the desire to be held in Tokyo "". The opportunity to show their technological superiority can also provide unmanned transport, the importance of which may be very large in the background of labor shortage in the country, obuslavlivaet shrinking and aging population.

"the population Decline puts us at risk of failing to carry out the operation and that is why we are now seeking to introduce new technologies, Autonomous mobility, is able to guarantee us the opportunity of performing the same amount of work, but involving a smaller number of people" — added Yamaguchi.
