Leading the World! Taichung’s MIT Self-Driving Bus Upgraded the Smart Transportation
This test drive project was assisted by the Taichung Government that provided the field between December 21, 2018 and January 21, 2019. Domestic self-driving car manufacturers jointly launched the test ride service for the public. The Taichung City Government not only provided the test field for trials, but also invited domestic solution providers related to self-driving car and integrated those offer operations, equipment, technology services to form the Taichung flagship team. Taiwan Optical Platform set up the optical fiber network and Wistron developed the cloud platform of self-driving cars while Startrii., LILEE Systems and National Taiwan University (NTU) jointly developed the Motion Control Platform. The self-driving M-Bus developed by Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) has been made possible with the cooperation of ITRI, Mobiletron, RAC Electric Vehicles Inc., and NTU. M-Bus was equipped with the Surrounding Sensing Subsystem (S3), Taiwan’s first environment sensing subsystem developed for self-driving vehicles, providing unique riding experience to the public with the emerging technology.

Innovation Service - "4D_ BIM Smart Building Facilities and Equipment Cloud Management Platform"
BIM technology facilitates the life-cycle service information required for a building, from planning, design, construction, completion, occupancy, maintenance, demolition and reconstruction, and other circulation functions. With ICT, the concept of the Internet of Things (IOT) is one of the most effective tools for obtaining this related information. Therefore, BIM + IOT is one of the main development technology trends for future building facility management (FM). This project combines BIM and IOT technology to build a high-efficiency operating system, and uses information and related data to help with calculation for program systems related to FM, so that these programs can quickly calculate based on the real-time data and provide accurate information that users need. These value-added applications based on this information, can maximize the overall performance of the building.

The Magneto Project (Road side parking spaces real-time information service)
Magneto Project provides 7,000 road side parking spaces real-time information service in Taichung, covering 100% parking hotspots. Taichung City Government works in cooperation with Magneto Project, which organized by FarEasTone Telecommunications Co., Ltd. (FET), installed parking sensor in each high demand parking spaces. The parking sensor will send detection results to the platform by NB-IoT network, people can find the empty parking space via the official LINE ID “Parking Go”. Magneto project has made parking more convenient. The service accumulated more than 70,000 online users and more than 1,260,000 times of service requests, and successfully assisted 75% users to find parking space in 10 minutes.
