Autonomous Driving in China

    View Authors July 2018

    Introduction 

    China is at the forefront of autonomous driving technology. Its dynamic and successful car manufacturers are scurrying to develop the technologies that will make “robocars” a reality on its roads and the roads of the rest of the world. China is focused on seizing leadership in this industry not only because the country is the largest car market in the world and determined to take the lead in a crucial and game-changing technology, but also because of its under-publicized objective to cut road accidents. Every day, more than 700 people die on China’s roads.
