Guangzhou-based L4 autonomous driving firm WeRide on Sept. 10 launched autonomous driving companies in villages in Guangzhou, which is at the moment within the street check stage.
As China’s first publicly accessible Robotaxi service, WeRide Robotaxi has run auto-driving exams for greater than 900 days, accumulating 2.8 million kilometers of mileage and serving almost 90,00zero passengers.
WeRide’s Robotaxi service opened to the general public in Huangpu District and Guangzhou Improvement District in Guangzhou for greater than 200 days with no accidents, overlaying 144.65 sq. kilometers and greater than 200 pick-up and drop-off spots, operating weekly from 8:00 am to 22:00 pm.
The launch of companies in villages in Guangzhou constructed one other pillar for WeRide.
Driving in Chinese language villages is a tricky job as a result of constructing density exceeding 70%, street width inside 4 meters and sophisticated site visitors stuffed with road distributors, bikes and passengers.
WeRide incorporates its auto-driving algorithm WeRide ONE within the Robotaxi which supplies precedence to pedestrians and passing automobiles.
With the assistance of a sensor package developed by WeRide, the Robotaxi is ready to detect all roads and simultaneous site visitors data inside a spread of as much as 250 meters and 360-degree protection of close by obstacles.
Customers can hail WeRide Robotaxi each on the WeRide Go App and on Amap, Alibaba’s mobility aggregator service platform.
Additionally on Sept. 10, Baidu launched its Apollo Go Robotaxi service in Beijing with almost 100 pick-up and drop-off stations in Yizhuang, Haidian and Shunyi districts. Each Baidu Apollo Go and WeRide Robotaxi are L4 stage.
