Alibaba Eyes Self Driving Vehicles
- Apr 18, 2018-
According to earlier media reports, Alibaba has been conducting regular road tests of self-driving vehicles and has the capability to perform open road trials. It is also looking to hire an additional 50 experts on self-driving vehicles.
The research aims to reach Level 4, which means the self-driving car is able to fully drive itself without human intervention in certain circumstances.
The move is also part of China's broader efforts in accelerating development of autonomous driving technology as the country released a national guideline on road tests for self-driving vehicles last week to step up commercializing such vehicles.
