W&P – Successful of Indonesia’s First Autonomous Electric Vehicle

Heartiest congratulations to Mitsubishi Corporation and Sinar Mas Land on the inauguration of the PoC of Indonesia’s first autonomous electric vehicle at Q-Big BSD City!

The inauguration event — which was attended by the Indonesian Transportation Minister Mr. Budi Karya Sumadi as well as Mr. Bambang Susantono, the head of the National Capital Authority of Nusantara, and Mr. Masami Tamura, Japanese Embassy’s Chargé d’Affaires ad interimmarked the launch of Indonesia’s first intelligent transportation system of the French-made shuttle bus Navya Arma. The 15-passenger self-driving electric vehicle has a battery capacity of 33 kWh and is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) and Light Radar (LIDAR) sensor.

Mitsubishi Corporation and Sinar Mas Land are pioneering the use of digital technology to cater to smart city features, and have been putting constant effort to embed digital technology to leverage the quality of life, as well as boost the social economy sector, particularly in BSD City. The technology-based facilities are intended to support their integrated Transit-Oriented Developments (TODs) in BSD, South Tangerang, which are by far the biggest (and first-of-its-kind) smart and sustainable TOD project in Indonesia.

Walalangi & Partners feels very proud to be a part of the prestigious development project, not only for the parties involved but also for the future development of Indonesia, which is expected by the Indonesian government to be the pilot project that can be adopted in other areas in Indonesia, including the new capital city of Indonesia (Nusantara). This goes in parallel with the vision of G20, i.e., to go towards smart green cities, more low-carbon mobility, and less traffic congestion.

Walalangi & Partners team was led by Mr. Luky I. Walalangi and Mr. Hans Adiputra Kurniawan, partners of the firm, with the full support of Mr. Andhika Indrapraja, Ms. Sinta Dwi Cestakarani, Dr. Prisca Octavia Rumokoy, Ms. Friliantari Putri, Ms. Yuki Tresnaningtyas, Ms. Kathleen Cateliya, and Ms. Raissa Richka Jonah, all associates of the firm.
