Taiwan CAR Lab

Taiwan CAR Lab is the first autonomous vehicle proving ground in Taiwan that encompasses the development of both the whole vehicle and automobile components. Its 1.75-hectare intelligent driving laboratory was designed to simulate road conditions in Taiwan when driving at relatively slow speeds of 0 - 30 km/h. It provides a closed space to drive, display, and demonstrate the operation of vehicles up to the size of a medium-sized bus. Besides offering domestic and foreign industrial and research organizations opportunities to use the space, providing standard testing processes, dynamic traffic scenarios, virtual simulation platforms, internet of vehicles, and cyber security testing techniques. By accelerating self-driving vehicle R&D, Taiwan CAR Lab is bringing applications closer to the market and sparking the development of related industries in Taiwan.

When supporting the development of autonomous-related technology by industrial and academic organizations, Taiwan CAR Lab integrates mixed automobile and scooter traffic, specific types of traffic accidents, and other local characteristics. It strengthens virtual simulation banks, image identification banks, and intelligent driving testing databases. These data all link to the dynamic testing situations used by the intelligent driving testing site, to strengthen the provision of verification and proof of self-driving and Internet of Vehicles functions in the virtual simulation laboratory (IV&V). The Taiwan CAR Lab test site provides comprehensive, stage-by-stage support to domestic self-driving and Internet of Vehicles R&D agencies as well as automobile components, automotive electronics, and ICT industries in their efforts to advance self-driving and Internet of Vehicles smart applications from germination to general use.

Cyber Security & Smart Technology R&D Building

Tainan’s Shalun Smart Green Energy Science City forms part of the government's “5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan”, and possesses a complete R&D environment, with data security technology, smart transportation, smart health and smart living as its main development axis. Shalun Science City will establish a training academy and collaborative base for data security, along with a control base, a smart transportation simulation platform, and the Taiwan Tech Arena SOUTH (TTA SOUTH. Other spaces will attract manufacturers of the industry for undertaking co-creation and R&D with associates and other international manufacturers, providing complete one-stop and product verification services for resident manufacturers. Such service spaces will play a major role of incubating potential projects that will shape Taiwan’s vital cyber security and smart industry clusters.

New Southbound Policy Office

The New Southbound Project Office Subsidized by NSTC (Below: Project Office) was established in October, 2016. The preliminary tasks of the Project Office were to analyze the technology policies of New Southbound partner countries, assist NSTC in formulating policy and determine research issues of regional scientific importance. Subsequently, the Project Office continued to assist NSTC in tracking the effectiveness of NSP policies and engaging in bigger-picture tasks such as adjusting policy orientation to track the implementation of various initiatives, hosting seminars and other opportunities for exchange, and establishing scientific research platforms at home and abroad. The following are the NSP’s overarching objectives: 

1. Compile and promote policy results.
2. Track the progress of NSP policies.
3. Analyze the research capabilities of NSP partner countries.
4. Perform NSTC tasks relevant to the NSP.
5. Perform administrative tasks for STICs.
