Non-face-to-face, untact life with autonomous driving technology! The 4th Pangyo Autonomous Driving Mobility Show ends
2020-10-19, Jane Lee Reporter
- Held for three days from Oct 15-17 1st and 2nd Pangyo Technovalley areas
- Korea's major autonomous driving mobility startups like Bear Robotics, Dogugonggan, and VD Company participated to showcase non-face-to-face autonomous driving mobility technology and services
- Hosted by Gyeonggi-do and jointly organized by KINTEX and the Advanced Institute of Convergence Technology
The 4th Pangyo Autonomous Driving Mobility Show (PAMS 2020) held in the 1st and 2nd Pangyo Technovalley areas in Gyeonggi-do, hosted by Gyeonggi-do and co-organized by KINTEX and the Advanced Institute of Convergence Technology, ended its three-day journey and ended on Oct. 17.
Taking the growing importance of untact autonomous driving technology in everyday life into account in the coronavirus era, the Pangyo Autonomous Driving Mobility Show, which is celebrating its 4th year this year, had the exhibition and experience programs that can be integrated in the non-face-to-face services like autonomous vehicles, drones, and robots. For this, the name of the event had changed from Pangyo Autonomous Driving "Motor Show" to "Mobility Show."
In addition, to prevent COVID-19 infection, the event was available non-face-to-face and online through YouTube and the website, and for safety, it was prepared for the on-site visitors to view the event after online pre-application and approval, and electronic and manual access lists.
The '#UNTACT #CONNECT' event where visitors can see and experience non-face-to-face autonomous robots that can be encountered in everyday life opened at the Pangyo Autonomous Driving Plaza in front of Pangyo Station Exit 3 from the first day (Oct. 15) to the last day (Oct. 17). Here, promising autonomous driving mobility startups in Korea like ▲Bear Robotics ▲VD Company ▲Dogugonggan ▲Exarobotics ▲Twinny ▲SteamMaker ▲UVify, and ▲SWM and Gyeonggi-do autonomous driving shuttle Zero Shuttle developed by Advanced Institute of Convergence Technology participated to introduce serving robots, quarantine robots, crime prevention robots, cleaning robots, logistics robots, cooking robots, and autonomous vehicles. In particular, these robots were directly placed in restaurants and apartment complexes near the venue, providing an opportunity for visitors to see and experience autonomous driving mobility products that are attracting attention in the non-face-to-face era.
On the second day (Oct. 16), Autonomous Driving Recognition Technology Contest was held to encourage the development of autonomous driving algorithms that can contribute to establishing an autonomous driving DB suitable for the domestic road environment and overcoming accident-prone situations, and Pangyo Zero City Autonomous Driving Demonstration Challenge award ceremony was held to encourage the companies' participation in autonomous demonstration to vitalize Pangyo Zero City.
In the Autonomous Driving Recognition Technology Contest, the Sungkyunkwan University Automation Lab Team won the 1st prize in both the ① Forward environment recognition and ② Omnidirectional 3D environment recognition. In the Pangyo Zero City Autonomous Driving Demonstration Challenge, Inha University won in the ① Autonomous vehicle technology innovation category and Bitsensing won in the ② Autonomous cooperative driving technology innovation category.
On the last day, ▲ Autonomous Driving Rally, which demonstrates goods delivery services using autonomous mobility like drones, autonomous vehicles, and delivery robots ▲ Gyeonggi-do Autonomous Delivery Mobility Contest to foster future autonomous driving technology talents ▲ Gyeonggi-do Zero Shuttle Test Drive showing future autonomous driving transportation environment for general visitors were held. In particular, the autonomous driving rally, which demonstrated continuous delivery of goods by linking air delivery using drones, autonomous vehicles, and delivery mobility, was broadcast live through YouTube, and received great response from visitors on site.
In addition, the Gyeonggi Autonomous Driving Delivery Mobility Contest, which was held for university students in departments and clubs related to autonomous driving, took place on Oct. 17 for driving evaluation and functional evaluation. Kookmin University took the first place with KUUVe, Yonsei University took the second place with Sabaltongmun, and Sungkyunkwan University took the third place with HEVEN.
An official from the Pangyo Autonomous Driving Mobility Show said, "In view of the high interest in non-face-to-face technology, this Pangyo Autonomous Driving Mobility Show was held to show the future changes in life that autonomous mobility will bring by delivery, serving, cleaning, and quarantine robots that can be combined in daily life. In the future, we will continue to develop this event into something that presents the future development direction by presenting non-face-to-face autonomous mobility technologies in various fields."
