LILEE Systems Instrumental in Leading the World’s First Autonomous 9-Meter Diesel Bus

San Jose, CA – October 2, 2019 ‒ LILEE Systems, the leading provider of advanced connectivity solutions with an open edge and cloud platform for the transportation industry, is among a consortium of transportation and high-tech experts using the latest in advanced technology to safely pilot Autonomous Vehicles (AV). As part of the Taichung City project, Dr. Yi-Ta Chuang of LILEE Systems was the lead in developing the technology to pilot the world’s first autonomous 9-meter diesel bus. During the 32 day program, the AV converted G-Bus transported over 7,000 passengers on a regular schedule demonstrating a Proof of Service, while driving on city streets with cross traffic while utilizing signal priority right of way. “The Taichung City project was the first step in developing the foundation for a Proof of Business concept for the new smart city initiative. The inclusion of Autonomous Rapid Transit (ART) is a huge step forward in achieving the smart city goals set back in 2017. City planners will now be able to cope with the high demand and pressure of finding and retaining qualified drivers. The ART system integrates cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Software-Defined Radio (SDR) technology to provide autonomous, connected, efficient and safe public transportation,” said Dr. Chuang of LILEE Systems. One of the key factors to the success of this AV project was enlisting the cooperation of the original part manufactures. By doing so, the consortium ensured crucial components such as the transmission, engine, steering column, throttle and breaking systems were all modified to precise factory specifications to guarantee the safety of the AV and its passengers without compromising the...

LILEE Systems – Major Advances in Autonomous Rapid Transit (ART) at Silicon Valley’s Innovation Without Borders Event

LILEE Systems – Major Advances in Autonomous Rapid Transit (ART) at Silicon Valley’s Innovation Without Borders Event

SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 13, 2019 ‒ LILEE Systems, the leading provider of advanced wired and wireless communication products, solutions and services for the transportation industry, announced today Dr. Jia-Ru Li, founder and CEO of LILEE Systems will be delivering the Keynote address at the Innovation Without Borders event in San Francisco, CA on January 15, 2019. Dr. Li’s speech, The Future of Smart Transportation: The Autonomous Bus Has Arrived, will focus on the major advances in the field of Autonomous Rapid Transit (ART). LILEE Systems is among a consortium of transportation and high-tech experts currently running the world’s first 9-meter diesel bus, carrying citizens, running on regular streets, and with signal priority enabled. The program started taking passengers on the 2.9 km autonomous bus route on December 21, 2018 in Taichung City, Taiwan and will continue until January 20, 2019. In the first 10 days of operation, the autonomous bus received an overwhelming welcome with more than 2,000 riders. Government officials, citizens and student field trips brought the curious community together to witness what was once considered science fiction. To architect a public autonomous bus program requires stringent planning. Meeting these requirements is imperative for a successful outcome. LILEE Systems adopted a concept called: ACES in Mobility, established to advance the next generation of smart transportation. ACES is an acronym developed from the four key components needed to push forward a smart transportation system: Autonomous, Connected, Efficient and Safe. The Taichung City project achieved all the necessary ACES criteria to insure consistency and reliability. Taichung experienced a population boom and now faces the same growing pains as...
