• Driverless taxi: Singapore gets world’s first self-driving taxi cab service - TomoNews

    SINGAPORE — A Singaporean company has launched the world’s first self-driving taxi in the island nation, beating out Uber and other giants. The public run comes days after Uber announced plans for a new driverless service in Pittsburgh. The ride-sharing giant had been set to launch the service using Volvo SUVs fitted with an autonomous driving system by the end of August. The Straits Times reports that on Thursday, startup nuTonomy started a trial run using two electric vehicles: a Mitsubishi i-Miev, and a Renault Zoe. Both are equipped with Lidar technology that uses lasers to map out its environment. Inside the vehicle are two mounted cameras that are meant to detect obstacles on the road and traffic lights. The service currently runs within a 6-kilometer route in Singapore’s On...

  • The first Singapore-developed driverless car for public roads

    The Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) will be launching Singapore's very first locally-developed driverless car that is designed to operate on public roads. A collaborative project between SMART and the National University of Singapore (NUS), this driverless car aims to resolve the "first-and last-mile problem", which is especially pertinent in view of Singapore's ageing society. It also aims to help promote car-sharing as the driverless car is able to resolve the 'rebalancing' issue (i.e. getting the car to the next car-sharing customer once the previous customer drops off the car) when cars are shared.

    SINGAPORE: Singapore commuters have expressed confusion at the variety of taxi fares being charged in the country. For example, there are as many as five different flagdown rates for at least one company. That is not including the raft of surcharges that could be applicable for peak periods and busy locations. The current fare structures were discussed in Parliament on Tuesday. And the government has said it will explore ways to make the costs simpler and easier to digest. But experts said another solution could lie in the use of technology. Commuters in Singapore used to have a much clearer idea about how much they would pay when they flagged down a taxi.

SINGAPORE — A Singaporean company has launched the world’s first self-driving taxi in the island nation, beating out Uber and other giants. The public run comes days after Uber announced plans for a new driverless service in Pittsburgh. The ride-sharing giant had been set to launch the service using Volvo SUVs fitted with an autonomous driving system by the end of August. The Straits Times reports that on Thursday, startup nuTonomy started a trial run using two electric vehicles: a Mitsubishi i-Miev, and a Renault Zoe. Both are equipped with Lidar technology that uses lasers to map out its environment. Inside the vehicle are two mounted cameras that are meant to detect obstacles on the road and traffic lights. The service currently runs within a 6-kilometer route in Singapore’s One-North Business Park. Users need be invited to be part of the trial program, and then register to a phone app which they will then use to request rides. Though only open to about a dozen people so far, the trial program is expected to expand to accommodate thousands within a few months. Rides are free during the trial run, and a driver will be in the vehicle with the passenger to serve as backup in case of any emergencies. The company, founded by two Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers, is hoping to expand the fleet to about a hundred by 2018, and believes the driverless taxis could reduce cars on the road from 900,000 to 300,000. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

SINGAPORE: Singapore commuters have expressed confusion at the variety of taxi fares being charged in the country. For example, there are as many as five different flagdown rates for at least one company. That is not including the raft of surcharges that could be applicable for peak periods and busy locations. The current fare structures were discussed in Parliament on Tuesday. And the government has said it will explore ways to make the costs simpler and easier to digest. But experts said another solution could lie in the use of technology. Commuters in Singapore used to have a much clearer idea about how much they would pay when they flagged down a taxi. Lim Biow Chuan, member of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport, said: "For commuters who are price sensitive, what they do is they don't flag down a Mercedes Benz (taxi) and (they) just flag a normal taxi. (That way, they) know exactly how much (they) need to pay." But with the various fare structures now in place, commuters sometimes end up paying much more than they expect. And this runs counter to the aim of the taxi deregulation implemented in 1998. Mr Lim said: "We do not see competitive fares whereby consumers will benefit. To average consumers, do (they) have a choice? Now, if (they) don't have a choice, then that's pretty unfair." Comfort Delgro, the largest taxi operator in Singapore, did not respond to Channel NewsAsia's queries, while SMRT Taxi declined to be interviewed. A spokesman for Trans Cab, Singapore's second-largest operator, said its fare structures are largely driven by Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices. Flagdown rates for its taxis range from S$3 to nearly S$4, depending on the cab type. Trans Cab also said that if standardised rates are put in place for greater transparency, it could result to higher costs, and this is likely to be passed on to consumers. Associate Professor Anthony Chin, who teaches Transport Economics at the National University of Singapore, believes empowering commuters with information will solve the problem. For instance, a smartphone app that shows available cabs in the area, and contains details of the make and model of the taxi could be used. This would help consumers, especially if it showed how much trips would cost. Assoc Prof Chin elaborated: "Then it's up to (the consumers) whether (they) want to contact the premium taxi which is 500 metres (away), or the normal taxi away which is maybe 600 metres away. The taxi can then respond directly by calling (the consumers) up." It is unclear how long the government's review of taxi fare structures will take, but Mr Lim said the result must meet the needs of commuters, cabbies and taxi companies. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/technology-could-help/885270.html
