China’s Guangzhou to Open Six Bus Routes Running 50 Driverless Vehicles
China’s Guangzhou to Open Six Bus Routes Running 50 Driverless Vehicles

(Yicai Global) Sept. 2 -- China’s largest project to demonstrate the use of smart connected vehicles will be launched in Guangzhou, with plans to put 50 self-driving buses into operation on the city’s roads.

The move comes after the capital of southern Guangdong province announced a hybrid pilot scheme in July wherein autonomous vehicles would run on the same roads alongside manned cars, local tabloid Southern Metropolis Daily reported today. The city’s government adopted the plan yesterday.

According to the plan, Guangzhou will roll out six public transport routes featuring 50 driverless buses and one vehicle remote management platform. State-owned Guangzhou Public Transport Group will buy all the equipment from the winners of a public tender.

Guangzhou Public Transport will also be in charge of drawing up the stops, departure times, charging standards and so forth of the routes, the municipal government said. Setups and operating plans will be adjusted and refined according to the actual situation, it added.

The plan also requires that the accident rate on the six routes should be lower than 90 percent of the rate among traditional buses.

Guangzhou launched an autonomous vehicle pilot scheme in July, planning to run five testing phases by 2025. The trials require vehicles from autonomous driving firms to complete tests in mixed traffic flow environments while operating various services.

Guangzhou has issued autonomous driving test licenses to a large number of firms, including WeRide, Poni.ai, GAC Group, Baidu and Didi Chuxing. As of July, license holders logged 2.55 million kilometers of safe mileage, per local government data.

Good luck. I'm sure data collection will be open and honest. And with no tort system, there's nothing to worry about. I can hardly wait to catch a ride!

Chainah is already totally Orwellian with Social Credit Score that basic allows the government to deny you the ability to travel outside your gulag for dangerous speech. They force Churches to take down Crosses and Images religious images, Temples to take down Budha and replace them with Xi and Mao.

Koran and Xi Must be studied at the Mosque. You could or possibly ride this geo fenced bus to anywhere without the correct social score.

At least, you can take control of your Escalade and refuse to get your recommended ‘vaccine passport’ here in the United States, but for how long Before GM locks the doors and your Escalade drives you to the vaccinators by force?
I am vaccinated FYI

If whatever happens ends up for the worse we will never hear much about it. People will disappear or show up with missing appendages.

Busses are a good early use case for autonomous vehicles. The route is fixed, any disruptions (e.g., road maintenance) can be pre-planned and fed into the routing etc. It's a lot more predictable than, say, ride-hailing where the vehicle has to go to some new place every time. For example, University of Michigan ran an autonomous shuttle for a while a couple of years ago.

Not to mention they hit a lot harder than a mere Tesla going 70 with a passed-out "driver" safely belted in.
