Beijing to have driverless cabs

Baidu, a leading Chinese internet search and artificial intelligence company, plans to launch its driverless taxi service in Beijing. 

The Beijing-based company will put 40 Apollo Go Robo taxis onto the capital’s roads. The users can book through Baidu maps or Apollo's official website. 

The total mileage under test this time is about 700 kilometers, covering nearly 100 stations in residential and business areas of Yizhuang, Haidian, and Shunyi which makes it China’s biggest for mileage and area. 

Baidu brought Apollo Go to Guangzhou in Hebei province last month, making it the second city to have welcomed the service following Changsha in April last year. Baidu Apollo Go has since entered multi-regional operation stage.
