CEO of Didi Chuxing, Cheng Wei, announced at the roundtable forum of the World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC) 2019 that his company will expedite the manned Didi autopilot tests in Shanghai and will invite ordinary users to participate in the experience.

According to Reuters, the cars will have a human driver present, and will be realised in 30 different auto models geared up with Level 4 autonomy.

"Technology only has worth when it brings value to people's lives". Level four self-driving cars have a high degree of autonomy but a driver can still manually take control. Trips will reportedly be able to exceed 6.21 miles (10 kilometres). Exact dates for launch have not been revealed.

Plans for self-driving taxi services have been wheeled out in multiple countries over the last few years from Dubai to Japan. The company's pilot program will employ both autonomous vehicles as well as human drivers and will eventually expand beyond China. In August 2016, then-Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said he would sell Uber's Chinese business to Didi for a 17.7 percent stake in Didi and a seat on the company's board.

In June, Waymo announced plans to launch its self-driving cars outside the USA - specifically, to France and Japan, in partnership with Renault and Nissan.
