BOLDLY Inc., a subsidiary of SoftBank Corp. (TOKYO: 9434) that develops operation systems and provides services for autonomous driving mobility previously featured in SoftBank News, continues to make great progress. From December 15 to 19, 2021, BOLDLY operated its autonomous bus on the winter roads of Kamishihoro, a town in Hokkaido, the northernmost prefecture of Japan. The test operation was conducted to examine how snow affects the bus’s sensors, as well as how icy roads impact performance. This two-minute video features highlights from this winter test operation.

In collaboration with governments, BOLDLY will continue to work to bring self-driving shuttles to public roads and give people more mobility options.
