SHANGHAI, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing (DiDi) on Saturday launched the trial run of self-driving ride service on designated test roads in the eastern metropolis of Shanghai.

Users who have registered in advance on DiDi's mobile app can hail an autonomous vehicle for a free ride, as long as their points of departure and arrival are within the 53.6-km designated roads in Shanghai's Jiading District.

DiDi said safety personnel have been deployed on the self-driving vehicles to respond to emergencies and take over the steering wheel if needed. In addition, DiDi has set up a safety center for monitoring the vehicle's operational status and provide remote assistance when necessary.

Zhang Bo, CTO of DiDi, said the company will start by assigning orders to both human and robotic drivers as autonomous vehicles can only work in certain areas.

"Autonomous driving needs to move beyond being a novel but limited experience and become a reliable and efficient daily mobility option for the general public in a highly complex world," Zhang said.

Cheng Wei, CEO of DiDi, said the warm service of human drivers will not disappear due to the advent of self-driving technology, and new jobs will be created as the autonomous industry chain expands.

Jiading launched a pilot zone for intelligent connected vehicles in 2016. So far, it has realized full coverage of 5G signals on 53.6 km of open roads where smart vehicles are tested.

上海,6月27日(新华社)——周六,网约车巨头滴滴出行(Didi Chuxing)在东部大都市上海的指定测试道路上启动了自动驾驶服务的试运行。


在滴滴手机应用上提前注册的用户,只要他们的发车点和到站点都在上海嘉定区53.6公里的指定道路范围内,就可以叫到一辆免费的自动驾驶汽车。


滴滴表示,无人驾驶汽车上已经部署了安全人员,以应对紧急情况,并在需要时接管方向盘。此外,滴滴还设立了一个安全中心来监控车辆的运行状态,并在必要时提供远程协助。


滴滴的首席技术官张波表示,该公司将首先向人类和机器人司机分配订单,因为自动驾驶车辆只能在特定区域工作。


张说:“在这个高度复杂的世界里,自动驾驶需要超越一种新颖但有限的体验,成为普通大众可靠、高效的日常出行选择。”


滴滴首席执行官程维表示,人类司机的热情服务不会因为自动驾驶技术的出现而消失,随着自动驾驶产业链的扩大,将创造新的就业机会。


2016年,嘉定推出了智能互联汽车试验区。到目前为止,它已经在53.6公里的开放道路上实现了5G信号的全覆盖。
