Demonstrations

Hot activities – Do remember to sign-up early for these demonstrations and be the first to experience new technologies on the road in Singapore, held at the nearby Float @ Marina Bay – the world’s largest floating stage, accompanied by an impressive skyline view of Singapore.

The demonstrations at the ITSWC 2019 will bring together companies and organisations that are showcasing their developmental vehicles, systems and concepts, some of which are already on trial or are being test-bedded in Singapore. They include:

  • Autonomous Vehicles (AV) Demonstrations and Rides – AV rides on closed circuits within the Demonstration site.
  • ITS Vendor Demonstrations – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution for cargo deliveries, V2X demonstrations, etc.
  • Static Showcase – Next generation smart bus, passenger drone display and concept mock-ups, etc.

General Guidelines

  • Demonstration booking: via Congress Mobile App (launched closer to the event) or at the Demonstration desk @ Suntec
  • Demonstration hours: Tuesday, 22 – Thursday, 24 October: 09:00 – 17:30 and Friday, 25 October: 09:00 – 14:00
AI ROBOTICS – TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMING VEHICLES TO ROBOTS ON WHEELS
Brought to you by: Ai Robotics

Ai Robotics will exhibit our cutting-edge technology, which transforms any vehicle into an autonomous robot. Mimicking the actions of human beings, our computer vision software uses cameras to localise and manuvere itself. By presenting the retrofitted vehicle with various obstacle scenarios, we will showcase our technology’s ability to effortlessly and safely avoid hazards.
COMFORTDELGRO – EZ10: THE SMART SHUTTLE FOR FUTURE MOBILITY

The future is now! Singapore-based ComfortDelGro, one of the world’s largest land transport companies, and its partners Inchcape Singapore and EasyMile, will be showcasing the EasyMile EZ10 Autonomous Shuttle at the 26th Intelligent Transport System World Congress 2019. Visitors will get to board and experience first-hand what it feels like to be ferried around in one of the most widely deployed autonomous vehicles in the world.
MOOVITA, PIONEER & SMRT – URBAN TOWN SHUTTLE SERVICE
Brought to you by: MooVita, Pioneer & SMRT

Experience one of Singapore’s first autonomous shuttle solutions by MooVita and ride through with a first-hand view of how the shuttles navigate a fixed route, responding to scenarios such as point to point navigation (Bus Stops), obstacle detection and avoidance, traffic light adherence and automated parking/docking. The MooShuttle product range is designed for last mile mobility, suitable for moving people in urban areas, allowing short distance ferrying tasks to be easily automated. Both the RDM PoD (4 seater) and Buggy (12 seater) were developed in 2018 and run on MooVita’s latest version of vehicle agnostic Autonomy software. It is modularised and configurable to specific scenarios within an urban environment.
LAND TRANSPORT AUTHORITY, SINGAPORE – SMART PUBLIC BUS OF THE FUTURE (A CONCEPT)
Brought to you by: Land Transport Authority (LTA)

This demonstration aims to:

  1. Highlight some of the features that youths think the smart bus of the future could have.
    In 2017, LTA organised the Smart Bus Challenge where youths were invited to play a part in rethinking and co-creating concepts that can change the way commuters travel on public buses. After the conclusion of the Challenge, selected ideas from the submissions were chosen to be integrated into a single bus to showcase what the public bus of the future could look like through the lenses of the youths.
  2. Share some proof of concept features that LTA is co-creating with the industry.
    LTA regularly works with the industry collaborate and co-create improvements to our public buses. Some of these improvement and features will also be shared in this demonstration.
ST ENGINEERING LAND SYSTEMS – COME ABOARD THE NAVYA AUTONOM SHUTTLE, THE ELECTRIC AND AUTONOMOUS MOBILITY SERVICE
Brought to you by: ST Engineering

Come aboard the AUTONOM SHUTTLE and discover an autonomous and fluid travel, with neither a steering wheel nor pedals. AUTONOM SHUTTLE fleets improve private sites, ease road congestion in urban centres and guarantee autonomous transport performance for the first and last mile. Discover through this service an application of our shuttles and enjoy a pleasant trip while making the most of your travel time.
QUANTUM INVENTIONS / CONTINENTAL – IMPROVING ROAD SAFETY FOR FLEETS AND DRIVERS THROUGH CONNECTED, ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS USING V2X
Brought to you by: Quantum Inventions, subsidiary of Continental

Crash-free driving will be the norm in the future. At the demonstration site, the company will showcase the use of V2X technologies for improved communication and safety on the road. The demonstration leverages V2X to form ad-hoc networks of connected vehicles that alert other road users about collision risks. It also detects driver fatigue events and communicates this to nearby vehicles to increase awareness and minimize accidents. Visual interfaces dedicated to communicating blind spots can also be disseminated to further enhance road safety.
NTU-VOLVO-SMRT – WORLD'S FIRST ELECTRIC AUTONOMOUS BUS
Brought to you by: Energy Research Institute @ Nanyang Technological University Singapore

The first organisation to trial an autonomous vehicle on Singapore roads, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) is at the forefront of autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies since 2013. Apart from test-bedding autonomous buggies and utility vehicles, NTU is also developing the world’s first full-size 12-meter electric and autonomous bus on its Smart Campus.

NTU researchers have designed and developed the AV software controller stack necessary for localisation, navigation and object detection, and classification using different sensor-based hardware that include, 3D LIDARs, RADARs, cameras, GPS and IMUs. This is also available in the form of AV kits which incorporate hardware and software implementations that convert manually-driven vehicles into complete level 4 and level 5 fully-autonomous vehicles.

A unique controller algorithm is required to mimic the normal manual driving capabilities of a human driver, enabling autonomous or driverless vehicle operation along any specific routes. Cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) systems are integrated in the AV Bus platform to facilitate autonomous object detection and classification, ensuring a seamless and reliable ride.

VOLOPORT BY VOLOCOPTER IN COLLABORATION WITH SKYPORTS - SHOWCASE OF WORLD'S FIRST FULL-SCALE AIR TAXI VERTIPORT PROTOTYPE
Brought to you by: Volocopter & Skyports

VoloPorts are the physical landing pads for so-called eVTOL (electric take-off and landing) aircraft or air taxis. This ground-based infrastructure is critical to the success of future Urban Air Mobility (UAM), particularly air taxi operations in congested cities. Vertiports are the only physical infrastructure required for air taxis to commence operations in cities in the near future. This VoloPort prototype allows the two partners, UK-based global vertiport owner and operator Skyports, and air taxi pioneer Volocopter to perform real-life testing of the customer journey and showcase operational processes. VoloPorts are designed to provide passengers with a seamless air taxi experience that is safe, secure, and relaxing. They will merge with their surroundings, allowing passengers and passers-by to see through the whole structure. VoloPorts are a crucial step in making UAM a reality. A full-scale model of the Volocopter 2X air taxi will be on display in the VoloPort prototype.
