Shenzhen May Allow Citywide Unmanned Driving Trials

Southern China tech hub Shenzhen plans to open all its main roads for self-driving cars, becoming the first Chinese city to move toward such a large-scale test of the new technology.

Shenzhen, one of China’s wealthiest cities with more than 17 million people, will allow citywide tests of unmanned driving, including main roads, highways, ports and railway logistics facilities, according to a guideline issued Wednesday by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and the Ministry of Commerce.

A number of Chinese cities have opened roads for autonomous driving tests, but limited to certain areas, according to Gu Dasong, a transport expert at Southeast University in Nanjing.
