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.
 

滴滴出行首次面向公众开放自动驾驶服务

6月27日,上海智能网联汽车规模化载人示范应用启动,滴滴出行首次面向公众开放自动驾驶服务。用户可通过滴滴APP线上报名,审核通过后,将能在上海自动驾驶测试路段,免费呼叫自动驾驶车辆进行试乘体验。
 

这是今年5月底滴滴宣布旗下自动驾驶公司完成首轮超5亿美元融资之后,相关业务的首次公开对外展示。
 

现阶段,滴滴自动驾驶载人测试范围仅限于在上海开放测试道路上,路线经过汽车会展中心、办公区、地铁站、酒店等核心区域。用户通过滴滴APP在开放道路范围内选择起终点,可免费体验自动驾驶服务。

为确保行程安全,自动驾驶测试车依相关规定配备了安全员,可随时接管车辆,应对突发情况。与此同时,滴滴设立了国内首个自动驾驶安全护航中心,能实时监控车辆、路况,并在车辆面临复杂情况时,给与协助指令,解决未来自动驾驶运营中可能出现的远程协助问题。
