Volvo tests autonomous driving technology in China

Volvo’s autonomous driving experiment. A new approach to transportation?

In early 2015 the Chinese-owned company already announced a real-world autonomous driving test to take place in Sweden. But before this even occurred, Volvo now advertises a similar test within China.

The congested city centers make the ideal location for Volvo to test their new autonomous car technologies. The experiment will not only determine which new driving benefits self-driving cars will create for the consumer. The extreme testing environment in China’s traffic will also gather important data for future autopilots.

Nevertheless, the carmaker needs the support of politics to proceed with its’ great plans. Government and traffic regulations have to loosen to allow autonomous experimentations.
