Driverless vehicles edge closer to reality in Shanghai

Driverless cars are the best-known example of artificial intelligence's huge impact on life today in the country. Specifically, many cases in the global transport hub of Shanghai demonstrate this point. In March, a new metro line with driverless trains, equipped with intercoms, emergency alerts, smoke detectors and emergency brakes, was tested in the city. The Automated People Mover system on the Pujiang Line, which stretches for 6.7 kilometers and links Huizhen Road with Shendu Highway Station, will allow passengers to transfer to metro line 8. At Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a trial run of a driverless minibus service has been in operation since April for on-campus commuting. Three eight-seat vehicles, guided by a map stored in a big data-based cloud platform, can pick up passengers and take them to the stop they select by scanning a QR code.
