Yamato and DeNA reportedly set to test self-driving delivery vehicles

Japan’s Yamato Transport and DeNA are reportedly planning to work together on field tests for self-driving parcel delivery vehicles in Tokyo. According to a report published by the Nikkei Asia today (21 July), Yamato and DeNA will develop the vehicles and operate them in an area where the government has permitted self-driving to run on public roads.

According to Nikkei, DeNA’s core activity is developing its mobile portal and platform for smartphone games, but it sees self-driving vehicles as a “new business pillar”.

DeNA has previously worked with robotics specialist ZMP to test a driverless taxi on public roads.
