• 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: It's the end of the road for taxi operator Smart Cab. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said that it will not renew the company's taxi service operator licence when it expires at the end of September. LTA cited two main reasons for this. First - that taxi operator Smart had multiple failures in its Quality of Service performance over the past two and a half years, such as not meeting the minimum rate for successfully matching call bookings with taxis. It also failed other standards such as the accident rate and first-inspection passing rate. Second, that the operator showed a lack of commitment in meeting regulatory conditions. This includes gaining the capability to locate taxis within the vicinity of a commuter making a call booking for quicker and more efficient assignin...

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

SINGAPORE: Four more taxi companies have informed the Public Transport Council that they will be revising their fare structures. Among them is Singapore's second largest taxi operator, TransCab, which announced on Tuesday that it will be raising fares from 3 January. TransCab's flag-down fares will cost 20 cents to 70 cents more, depending on the taxi type. For Toyota Crown, the flag-down fare will be S$3 instead of the current S$2.80. For Toyota Wish, it will be S$3.20 instead of the current S$3, while the start fare for Chevrolet will be S$3.40 instead of S$3.20. For Mercedes Benz, it will cost S$3.90, up 70 cents. Currently, the flag-down fare for the Chevrolet is the same as that for the Mercedes Benz. Every 400 metres after the flag-down distance will cost 22 cents for distances up to 10 kilometres. Currently, it is 20 cents for every 385 metres. After 10 kilometres, it will be 22 cents for every 350 metres, compared to 20 cents for every 330 metres. Every 45 seconds of waiting will cost 22 cents instead of the current 20 cents. TransCab, which has a fleet of 4,300 taxis, will also adjust the fees for cab bookings. It will be 20 cents cheaper to book the Toyota Wish, Toyota Crown and Chevrolet cabs. Currently, the fee is S$3.50 during peak hours and S$2.50 during off-peak hours. However, the booking fee for Mercedes Benz taxi will go up to S$10, from the current $8. The advanced booking fee will go up for all types of cabs. For Toyota Wish, Toyota Crown and Chevrolet, it will be S$6.50 instead of the current S$5.20. For Mercedes Benz cab, it will be S$18, compared with the current S$16. Peak-hour charges will be lowered to 25 per cent of meter fare from the current 35 per cent of meter fare. But the peak-hour charges will cover a longer period. They will kick in an hour earlier, from 6am to 9.30am from Mondays to Fridays, compared with the current 7am to 9.30am. As for the evening peak-hour charges, they will be from 6pm to midnight throughout the week including public holidays. Currently, the evening peak-hour surcharge applies to fares from 5pm to 8pm between Mondays and Saturdays. TransCab is the third taxi operator to announce fare changes, after ComfortDelGro and SMRT Taxis. When contacted, the Public Transport Council told Channel NewsAsia that three other smaller taxi operators - Premier, SMART Cab and Yellow Top - have informed it that they will also be revising their fares. Details are not available. SMART Cab told Channel NewsAsia that it may make an announcement as early as next week. The remaining operator, Prime Taxi, said it is still looking into the revision and will make a decision soon. TransCab drivers have mixed feelings about the fare adjustments. One TransCab driver said he fears that business "will be a bit less" after the fare hikes. Another said that business during "day shift should be ok" because "everybody (is) going to work, rushing to work". But in the evening, commuters "have plenty of time, they can take their time (to go home)...they won't take taxi, they'll take the MRT or bus." ComfortDelGro was the first operator to increase taxi fares, on December 12. A ComfortDelGro cab driver said: "In the city, it is ok, anytime, I can get passengers. But (in the) outskirts, remote areas, it is difficult to get passengers."

In the accident last Saturday morning (12 May 2012 @ 4am), Mr Ma's million-dollar sports car collided with a taxi, which then hit a motorcycle. Mr Ma died at the scene. Cabby Cheng Teck Hock and his passenger Shigemi Ito died in hospital. Eye Witnesses say The Ferrari Driver was reeking of Alcohol, State Media says he wasnt.. So Shurgs... The Driver in this Video says " Wa Wa Wa Lucky Man " its the Singlish way of saying "OMG, Lucky Not Me!!" Update: The police found no evidence that PRC Ferrari driver Ma Chi (马驰) has consumed any alcohol in the night before the fatal accident in Bugis, said a police spokesperson to the media. Ma was suspected of drink-driving and crashing his Ferrari into a Comfort Delgro taxi at a junction between Rochor Road and Victoria Street in the early hours of last Saturday morning, killing him on the spot. The Singaporean cabby 52 year old Cheng Teck Hock and his Japanese passenger Shigemi Ito died later of their injuries in hospital. The police claimed it ran blood tests on Ma Chi's blood taken at the scene of the accident and confirm that it did not contain any substances which can cause him to become drunk. The findings seem to contradict an earlier report by The New Paper claiming that Ma Chi reeked of alcohol when his body was extricated from his wrecked Ferrari. Friends of Ma Chi had earlier told the media that Ma Chi was not a 'heavy drinker' and he preferred tea to alcoholic drinks. Meanwhile, a key witness of the accident, the female passenger in Ma Chi's Ferrari Miss Wu Weiwei (吴薇薇) is currently recuperating in Tan Tock Seng Hospital. She just graduated from the East Institute of Management with a degree in 'Hospitality' and is reportedly working in a KTV lounge.

SINGAPORE: It's the end of the road for taxi operator Smart Cab. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said that it will not renew the company's taxi service operator licence when it expires at the end of September. LTA cited two main reasons for this. First - that taxi operator Smart had multiple failures in its Quality of Service performance over the past two and a half years, such as not meeting the minimum rate for successfully matching call bookings with taxis. It also failed other standards such as the accident rate and first-inspection passing rate. Second, that the operator showed a lack of commitment in meeting regulatory conditions. This includes gaining the capability to locate taxis within the vicinity of a commuter making a call booking for quicker and more efficient assigning of taxis, and achieving a minimum fleet size of 800 taxis. Smart Cab also did not make substantial progress towards meeting licence renewal conditions, such as equipping at least 40 per cent of its taxi fleet with a centrally-controlled "on-call" booking display sign by the end of this year, and 100 per cent by end 2015. LTA said there were already indicators that Smart Taxi would exit the market. One example, the company had begun downsizing its fleet from some 700 taxis in January last year to the 268 it has today. Smart Cab shrank its taxi fleet from 701 taxis in January 2012 to 517 taxis in August 2012, and further to 268 in June 2013, instead of increasing it to meet the minimum fleet size requirement of 800 taxis. Mr Chew Hock Yong, chief executive of LTA, said: "We also know that they had approached other companies, other taxi companies, to talk about whether the taxi companies are interested in buying their taxi fleet. So on their own accord, they have been taking that action. "Whenever a taxi operator starts to field some of these indicators, we are very concerned on behalf of the commuters. So we've on multiple occasions engaged Smart to try and find out what's happening, whether they can buck up and improve. Its performance has been deteriorating, they have been struggling." LTA said it had engaged Smart Cab on numerous occasions to discuss its Quality of Service performance, and to understand the reasons for its non-compliance, but there's been no notable improvement. Therefore, LTA's assessment is that Smart Cab will not be able to meet the conditions for the Taxi Service Operator Licence renewal, given its past performance and its lack of demonstrable commitment to improving its current performance. Smart Cab's exit brings the total number of taxi operators in Singapore to six. LTA said it will work with Smart Cab to minimise impact on commuters. It notes that Smart Cab's fleet accounts for less than 1 per cent of Singapore's total taxi fleet. Mr Chew added: "We don't think it will be a major impact. I mean, it's just one per cent. In fact, we do note that the taxi companies try very hard to raise their availability. For a commuter on the road trying to hail a taxi, we don't think they will feel a big difference. Particularly, if the transition is managed well, and the 268 taxis translate into 268 taxis under another company, then there's no difference at all." As at June 30, Smart has 268 registered taxis, and 164 deregistered taxis, whose six-month period for replacement has yet to expire. In addition to the 268 registered taxis, Smart will be allowed to transfer the 164 deregistered taxi quota to the buying taxi operator. The taxis taken over from Smart will not be counted towards the annual 2 per cent cap on the growth of each taxi company's fleet. LTA will also facilitate the transfer of Smart's eligible taxi licences to other operators, and work with Smart to help it fulfil its obligations to its taxi drivers. ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺ Content had been truncated due to text limit, pls visit below link for full content: www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/taxi-firm-smart-cab/741204.html
