Driverless cars in long-distance test
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
