Yudo to build island for driverless vehicles

Shanghai (Gasgoo)- It is reported that the municipal government of Putian City, Fujian Province and Yudo New Energy Automobile Co.,Ltd (Yudo) plan to build Meizhou Island into an islet for driverless vehicles.

Meizhou Island is a small island close to the shores of Putian in Fujian Province. It is known for being the birthplace of the goddess Mazu. With a dispersed population and a relatively isolated geographic location, it is endowed with many natural advantages to develop driverless vehicle business.

Besides, Yudo’s R&D of driverless vehicles provides preconditions for this project. As a new energy vehicle startup that firstly achieved mass production and sales of vehicles in China, Yudo has completed the tests of two driverless vehicles, according to Liu Xinwen, general-manager of Yudo.

Liu Xinwen also stated that it may take nearly 3 years to build this driverless-vehicle islet. The project has already been initiated and will be processed step by step from vehicle electrification to driverless stage. Meanwhile, Yudo will cooperate with China Mobile (a Chinese state-owned telecommunication corporation) in particular areas to build base stations using China Mobile’s 5G technology. According to Liu Xinwen, the utilization of 5G will help reduce the cost of LiDAR and achieve high definition for vehicle sensors at the same time.
