'Driverless Taxi' Era Begins in Two Cities in China

Chinese tech giant Baidu has received permission to run fully driverless taxis for commercial purposes on public roads in the cities of Wuhan and Chongqing.

Baidu will offer self-driving commercial “robotaxis” in some areas of the two cities through its company-affiliated autonomous ride-hailing platform, Apollo Go.

Baidu stated that backup monitoring and parallel driving will be implemented to ensure the safety of passengers.

Baidu had launched a pilot service with Apollo Go in cities as diverse as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen.

China has introduced a number of policies in recent years to promote the development and commercialization of autonomous driving technology.
