Driverless robot taxis are now available for public journeys in China

Must read


AutoX is eager to tout its robotaxis’ ability to handle real world conditions after months of stress testing. In a demo video (below), the driverless van knows how to safely ‘push’ a parked vehicle and handle a scooter at a red light. The vehicles use a combination of LiDAR, radar and blind spot detection to get a feel for their surroundings.

Fully driverless robotaxis are still very rare around the world, and it will take a combination of refined technology and up-to-date regulations before they are relatively mainstream. It is, however, an important step in this direction. They could however benefit from a boost in the current climate. The COVID-19 pandemic has additional risk to conventional driving for drivers and passengers, and removing drivers could make it one of the safest travel options for people without a car.
