Self-driving Busses in China's Cities

"Bulbous" blue bus could soon become a regular fixture on China’s roads. One hundred of the self-driving buses have so far trundled off a production facility in Xiamen, in southeast China’s Fujian province, and production is set to ramp up. The “Apolong” was developed by China’s second largest bus manufacturer, King Long, in partnership with Baidu, the Chinese internet company. The buses have no steering wheel, pedals or driver, but use Baidu’s Apollo 3.0 autonomous driving open platform technology. It’s China’s first commercially deployed fully autonomous bus and will initially cover last-mile travel, for example as shuttle buses in airports and tourist spots. The buses will be put into commercial operation in several Chinese cities including Beijing, Shenzhen, Xiongan, Wuhan and Pingtan
