As one of the leading cities of the automotive industry, Shanghai has the unique advantage of developing intelligent connected vehicles. By 2021, Shanghai had opened up a total of 615 testing roads spanning 1,289.83km, with 12,000 testing scenarios. The city has issued road test and demonstration application qualifications to 25 enterprises’ 295 vehicles, leading the country by example.

Currently, Baidu’s Apollo Moon ARCFOX version autonomous vehicle has started fully unmanned tests at Shanghai Auto Expo Park.
