The Lulin Widefield Telescope (LWT), which is an Officina Stellare's 0.4m RiFast 400 telescope, was installed at the Lulin Observatory on October 17th, 2017. The telescope was equipped with a FLI ProLine PL16803 monochrome CCD camera to reach a field of view up to about 2 square degrees and the limiting magnitude approaches to 19. We are still working on making the follow-ups of Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) with LWT a daily routine, as well as the complete procedures from observation, image calibration and reduction to analysis be totally automatic. We also show some successful observations, and those cases were a crucial step for LWT to track the NEOs to be confirmed. At the last part, we describe the prospect of LWT.
