Secret Weapons are Here to Guard the Safety of Taipei Universiade 2017 Vehicles

There will be more than 200 VIP cars and 150 athletes’ shuttle buses used during Taipei Universiade 2017 to transport important foreign guests and talented athletes to the venues and the village. How to ensure the safety of both passengers and vehicles will be one of the security enforcement challenges in the event.
On April, 28th, the security department of the Universiade with Pan German Universal Motors’ held a joint press conference to display the “escorting police car” exclusively for the event as well as “counter IED (Improvised Explosive Device) system car”.
All relevant departments will dispatch police cars to escort foreign VIPs’ and sport teams’ vehicles to the venues timely and safely. In addition, “counter IED system car”, developed by the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, will also be deployed. This type of car is capable of jamming the signal from remote IED bombs, which are frequently seen in international terrorist attacks. By means of counter IED system cars while event vehicles are in transit will enhance protection and ensure the safety of both passengers and vehicles.
