Connected and autonomous vehicles are being actively developed around the world in hopes of creating vehicles that can instantly make the safest and most appropriate responses to ever-changing road environments and realizing the dream of self-driving cars. In Shalun, Tainan, the Ministry of Science and Technology built the Taiwan CAR (connected, autonomous, road-test) Lab, a closed testing ground and the first of its kind to incorporate the complex traffic environments often seen in the Asia-Pacific region. President Tsai Ing-Wen presided over the opening ceremony on February 25. A dynamic test of a self-driving car developed by NCKU at the ceremony presented perfect performance: stopping at red lights, moving forward at green lights, making turns smoothly, and going around or stopping before obstacles. The results give rise to more imagination and expectations for smart transportation in the future.
