Autonomous trucks are now working in China. China Post and Deppon Express, two of China’s leading delivery and logistics companies, will begin autonomous package delivery services this April with the first self-driving vehicles to be put into daily commercial use in the country. The delivery trucks will operate on autonomous driving technologies developed by Fabu Technology, an artificial intelligence (AI) company focused on intelligent driving systems.

The autonomous truck deployment comes on the heels of real-world evaluation testing that wrapped up last November. To conduct these tests, Fabu partnered with China Post and Deppon Express to run Level 4 autonomous driving trucks in China’s heavily populated Zhejiang Province. During the testing, self-driving trucks operating on Fabu autonomous driving technology averaged 40-mile daily round trips along three different routes, with one delivery route passing through 50 intersections, 26 of which were controlled by traffic lights.
