FPT leading IT system development in Vietnam, Yamaha Motor, a leading manufacturer and marketer of motorcycles, Urban development company Ecopark, We signed a memorandum on demonstration experiments aimed at joint development of an automated driving system for small vehicles.

Through this joint development, FPT will develop automated driving software with artificial intelligence (AI) and LiDAR technology. Yamaha Motor co-develops and consults with autonomous driving technology in ECOPARK, and Ecopark provides infrastructure and facilities necessary for demonstration and development. Through this collaboration, the three companies will accelerate development of autonomous driving technology and aim to realize Vietnam's smart public transport vision.

In this experiment, we advance development and verification of items such as operation to a predetermined point, identification of lanes on the route, stop / parking / disembarkation according to the passenger's request, detection / avoidance of obstacles during travel By the end of 2019, we aim to realize a deceleration that detects vehicles and obstacles on the road, an automatic parking function without a driver, and a reservation function by a user through a mobile application.
