Volva is to launch China’s most advanced autonomous driving experiment in which local drivers will test autonomous vehicles on public roads in everyday driving conditions.

Volvo expects the experiment to involve up to 100 cars, and the company will in coming months begin negotiations with interested cities in China to see which is able to provide the necessary permissions, regulations and infrastructure to allow the experiment to take place.

“Autonomous driving can make a significant contribution to road safety. The sooner AD cars are on the roads, the sooner lives will start being saved,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo.
