Using three-dimensional coordinate data provided by Shizuoka Prefectural Government, we construct a super accurate 3D map for electric vehicle use. We aim to conduct proof-of-concept tests of autonomous driving technology based on the surrounding areas of ECOPA (Ogasayama Park) in Fukuroi City including public roads. With ECOPA Dream Project, we will utilize the same field to conduct UAV and multi media experiments.
