The race for driver-less cars in Southeast Asia gets intense as its autonomous pioneer FPT has planned to kick off a new autonomous project next Thursday in Hanoi. It seems that the global IT firm has kept itself busy since its made-in-Vietnam autonomous solutions were introduced for the first time in 2017.
FPT Global Automotive (FGA) – a strategic unit specializing on automotive technology solutions, has doubled the number of technology experts over the past two years. Some 2,000 employees have worked round the clock to make autonomous vehicles a reality. In October 2017, its first driver-less car hit the road, traveling at a speed of 20 km per hour and using various techniques such as artificial intelligence, radar, GPS, and computer vision to self-navigate, monitor their surroundings, automatically break, re-direct at the intersections and avoid obstacles. Japan’s Vice Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr. Masahiko Tominaga, was one of the distinguished guests who experienced the vehicle on its early days.
