China tests driverless cars in the traffic
In China, security is traditionally very important. With the concern that millions of cities may find an accident on the road, a number of restrictions are imposed on the vehicles, primarily the 40 km speed limit.
Tests of a driverless car that is supposed to be your vehicle for the future may have been braked up to this point probably because of this concern. So computer-oriented “robot automobiles” have been tested in a testing area in Shanghai to this day.
But in Beijing, the Ministry of Industry and Transport, economic magazine Caixin wrote, that soon these cars will be released into the traffic of big cities. The Ministry is working with the Internet Company Baidu on testing tools.
In July, such a car was put to the test in Beijing, but the steering wheel was still guarded by the founder of Baidu, Robin Li. It was then even questioned whether it was a violation of the law. Now, trialing on the traffic must also be legalized. In fact, if you look at Caixin, these vehicles already have nearly 5,000 km of test drive on trafficked roads.
