Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Chinese megacity Shanghai has so far launched the roads for autonomous vehicle tests in Jiading, Lingang and Fengxian districts, spanning 131 kilometers in total and embracing 1500 plus testing scenarios, according to the information delivered at the 2020 World Autonomous Vehicle Ecosystem Conference (WAVE).
As of today, Shanghai government has issued 119 license plates for autonomous car testing and pilot application to 20 enterprises, topping Chinese cities in terms of both the license number and the number of the companies granted the licenses.
Currently, the valid testing range has already exceeded 440,000 kilometers in Shanghai.
By the end of 2020, Jiading district plans to launch 315km-long road with around 100 ICVs deployed in passenger-carrying pilot application. Besides, it will strive to have the ICV testing and applications fully cover the entire district with the range exceeding 1,300km by 2022.
Going forward, Shanghai will continue pivoting on building autonomous driving testing scenarios and bolster relevant pilot applications. As part of efforts, local authorities will push ahead with the ICV (intelligent-connected vehicle) road testing across the 463- km² Jiading district, and simultaneously boost the ICV’s pilot applications in public transportation and sanitation fields by carrying out the projects of the passenger-carrying autonomous cars in Jiading, the intelligent bus and smart logistics in Lingang, the automated parking in Fengxian and the urban autonomous driving in Jinqiao of Pudong district.
Shanghai’s authorities will expedite the ICV pilot operation to make
breakthroughs in business model. To achieve this goal, autonomous
vehicles will be put into trial operation to ferry cargos first, and the
container transportation by autonomous heavy-duty trucks will be
promoted at Yangshan Port.
Furthermore, Shanghai will explore the pilot programs of conducting ICV tests on highways and overpasses at designated regions, the road testing without safety drivers, the data collection for making HD maps and the cross-border data transmission.
