In China the taxi driver was executed for murder and rape”

The company made the announcement at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference, where CTO Zhang Bo explained that people who hail a vehicle through Didi's app will be able to choose to be picked up by a self-driving auto.

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.

China executed a man for raping and murdering a 19-year-old female passenger who reserved a ride in his vehicle from Didi Chuxing, the country's largest ride-hailing platform.

Didi earlier this month said it spun-off its autonomous driving unit into an independent company which will focus on research and aim to deepen collaboration with automakers.

China on Friday executed a man convicted of raping and killing a female passenger past year while he was working as a driver for ride-hailing service Didi Chuxing, China's omnipresent answer to Uber.

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.

The person, Zhong Yuan, was executed in Zhejiang province on Friday afternoon, Xinhua information company reported.
