Chinese ride-hailing company tests robotaxi service in Shanghai

Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing launched a robotaxi service test in a Shanghai suburb on Saturday after installing V2X (Vehicle to Everything) hardware throughout the area. Under the test, users will be able to get a free trial ride using Didi's autonomous vehicles after making the reservation via their app, the company said. At the current stage, the service, equipped with safety drivers, is only available within a designated area in Shanghai, which will travel through exhibition centers, office areas, subway stations and hotels.
