Driver­less cars in long-dis­tance test

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Nan­chang: Two self-driv­ing cars on Satur­day af­ter­noon wrapped up a 2000-km (1240 miles) jour­ney in China’s first long-dis­tance road test for au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles. The ve­hi­cles, pro­duced by Chang’an Au­to­mo­bile, left the south­west­ern me­trop­o­lis of Chongqing last Tues­day and ar­rived at Bei­jing at about 5pm on Satur­day.

The cars suc­cess­fully drove dis­tance from other ve­hi­cles, changed lanes, over­took and per­formed other ma­neu­vers in­clud­ing three­p­oint turns au­to­mat­i­cally but still need the help of a driver in cer­tain road sec­tions and gas sta­tions, the de­sign­ers said. Xinhua
