Panasonic launches autonomous ride share service around its headquarters
Panasonic Corporation has begun offering an autonomous ride share service for its employees around its headquarters in Kadoma City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
Panasonic says its headquarters are expansive, and more than 14,200 employees often have to travel to and from the many buildings within the 468,400 mq premises. By providing the autonomous ride share service, Panasonic says it hopes to "alleviate the physical and psychological burden associated with the frequent travel and to improve employees' lives".
The service is operated by staff in the administration department rather than by developers and other internal experts.
