PlusAI obtains license to conduct road tests for driverless trucks in Changzhou
Font:〖L M S

In November 2018, PlusAI and Manbang announced they would collaborate on a Level 4 truck fleet by partnering with FAW Group, a leading Chinese heavy truck equipment manufacturer, and the United States-based chipmaker Nvidia Corp.

PlusAI, a startup focusing on driverless cargo vehicles, obtained a license to conduct road tests for self-driving commercial freight trucks in Changzhou, Jiangsu province in the same month.

The test mimicked a fairly typical scenario: A Level 4 autonomous truck, loaded with 40 metric tons of cargo, drove from one warehouse to another.

Equipped with artificial intelligence, deep learning, and light detection and ranging equipment, the driverless truck remained safe at speeds of 80 kilometers per hour on the highway, detecting moving objects 300 meters away.

Manbang Group, China's largest truck-hailing company, is expanding into the sector of self-driving truck fleets by leveraging its huge transportation data and investing in PlusAI Inc.
