EasyMile Deploys its First Autonomous Shuttle in Korea

EasyMile has made its debut in Korea in partnership with local autonomous Mobility as a Service (MaaS) provider SpringCloud. Their deployment of an EZ10 driverless passenger shuttle, ‘Springcar’, on the Seoul National University of Science and Technology campus meets on-site mobility needs.

The first successful deployment of an EasyMile shuttle in Korea is a critical step in a market with purchasing power. The nation has been opening up for development and commercialization of driverless solutions with the goal of reaching Level 4 autonomy by 2024.  Its government is investing millions over the next seven years into its “Autonomous Driving Technology Development Innovation Project” framework.

The shuttle will cover a 1.9 kilometer route.

The EZ10 autonomous passenger shuttle is the first operation of an EasyMile solution in the nation. It provides a transport service for students, staff and visitors to the campus. With the shuttle covering a 1.9 kilometer route, it connects the main car park to a network of stops at key buildings throughout the campus.

The university site brings together all the complex elements of an urban area: road and pedestrian traffic, roundabouts, intersections and parking lots. It lends itself perfectly to testing and validating transition to an urban scale.

Various data obtained through the operation will also be collected at the control center built in the campus and used for driverless technology development.

Seoul National University of Science and Technology President, Lee Dong-hoon, said:

In many countries, including Singapore, autonomous shuttle operations are active on campus. Springcar will establish itself as a new culture.
