DeNA Company began testing its unmanned shuttles in the Nishikat area, located about a hundred kilometers from Tokyo . The developer of mobile games DeNA created a six-seat unmanned taxi to help retired people lead an active life and fulfill their daily tasks.
The population of Japan is rapidly aging, so in many provinces, villages and small towns, most residents have long retired. This means that they are far from seeing so well, their coordination of movements and the speed of reaction are also not the same, so even older car owners can not always go on their own vehicles to visit and shop.
Unmanned Robot Shuttle buses from DeNA are designed to solve this problem and are already being tested. Their speed is still limited to ten kilometers per hour, but even so, unhurried shuttles allow many pensioners to travel about their business within the district.
Testing will last until 2020. If everything goes well and unmanned buses show themselves well, the government of the country promises to allocate separate strips for them and run them across the country.
