Autonomous driving gains traction

By Xing Yi in Shanghai | China Daily | Updated: 2020-09-16 00:00

Agreements and cooperation projects inked during the 2020 World Autonomous Vehicle Ecosystem Conference in Shanghai on Monday and Tuesday are expected to put the Yangtze River Delta region at the forefront of China's autonomous driving industry efforts.

Prominent among the agreements signed was the one between the authorities of Shanghai and the three provinces in the region-Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui, to set up a national pilot zone for intelligent connected vehicles.

Since the application of autonomous vehicles relies not only on the promotion of the self-driving technology for single cars but also on the building of smart roads, the agreements are crucial for the construction of roadside infrastructure and large-scale testing in the future, experts said.
