Mitsubishi Electric Field Testing xAUTO Autonomous-driving Test Vehicle

Autonomous driving offering high safety and convenience

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it has been conducting expressway-based field testing of its xAUTO vehicle and related autonomous-driving technologies for self-sensing and network-based driving, since May 2016. The xAUTO will be exhibited during 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition complex in Tokyo, Japan from October 27 to November 5.

Mitsubishi Electric named its autonomous driving technologies, Diamond Safety, which have been developed under the concept of "Thinking of people at any time". Mitsubishi Electric's self-sensing driving technology combines various peripheral-sensing technologies, including a forward-monitoring millimeter-wave radar with wide viewing angle, a forward-monitoring camera and a backward side-monitoring millimeter-wave radar. Its infrastructural driving technology uses high-accuracy 3D mapping in combination with a centimeter-level augmentation service (CLAS) broadcast from the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). Together, Mitsubishi Electric's self-sensing and network-based driving technologies enable autonomous driving with high levels of safety and convenience.
