Mitsubishi Electric Tests Autonomous Driving System via Quasi-Zenith Satellite System

September 26, 2017 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it began field testing the world's first autonomous driving technology on highways to use a centimeter-level augmentation service (CLAS) broadcast from the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) on September 19. Driving tests will be conducted to verify the possibility of infrastructural driving, utilizing CLAS signals and high-precision 3D maps combined with Mitsubishi Electric's intelligent driving technology, including sensing technologies such as millimeter-wave radar and cameras. CLAS is a positioning-augmentation service for high-precision positioning, distributed free of charge in Japan from the QZSS, which operates under the auspices of the Cabinet Office. CLAS is scheduled to begin operating in April 2018 and is currently in the final stages of verification. It is expected to be used for practical applications such as safe-driving assistance and automated driving.
