Japan to implement autonomous driving system in 2023

Tokyo, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) Starting April 2023, Japan will implement a new level four autonomous driving system incorporated this year into the Traffic Law, the National Police Agency (NPA) announced.

The measure will allow the movement of unmanned vehicles on public roads throughout the country, under certain conditions such as remote monitoring, the national press reported.

Incidentally, the NPA requires commercial operators to install monitoring devices and assign supervisory personnel to prevent accidents.

These monitoring mechanisms will allow the transmission and audiovisual recording of what happens inside the car, as well as verifying the location and the adoption of security measures against cyber-attacks.

Before obtaining the permits, the companies in charge of the autonomous cars will have to submit to the public safety commission of each Japanese prefecture an application describing their operation plans.

The driverless autonomous vehicles are initially expected to be used as delivery robots and tour buses on specific routes within sparsely populated areas.

The autonomous cars operate thanks to a modern system based on artificial intelligence algorithms.

Some of these vehicles are already in use in Japan, but they are level-three vehicles that require direct human participation in emergency situations.
