【戴姆勒成为首家在北京获得自动驾驶路测许可的国际企业】戴姆勒获得了在北京公路上测试自动驾驶车辆的许可证,使其成为第一家获得此类许可的国际汽车制造商。同样在德国和美国获得许可的戴姆勒表示,它现在将在北京进行道路测试。戴姆勒必须在国家试点区(北京和河北)进行智能移动测试,测试驾驶员也将接受严格的自动驾驶培训。戴姆勒还加深了与百度的关系,特别是在安全和自动驾驶方面的研发工作。戴姆勒表示,目标是了解中国自动驾驶的特殊要求,并对当地技术趋势发展早期直觉,这将对进一步完善其自动驾驶技术有重大意义。

Daimler has been granted a license to test self-driving vehicles on public roads in Beijing, making it the first international automaker to receive such permission.

The owner of the Mercedes-Benz brand was given the test permit by the Chinese government after extensive closed-course testing, the company said in a statement, adding that it marks a milestone in its research and development efforts in China.

Daimler, which also has licenses in Germany and the U.S., said it will now begin road tests in Beijing.

There are other companies testing autonomous vehicles in China, notably Baidu, which has been on public roads since at least 2016. For Daimler to qualify, the company said it had to add to its Mercedes-Benz test vehicles technical applications from Baidu’s Apollo platform. Daimler had to undergo testing at the National Pilot Zone (Beijing and Hebei) for Intelligent Mobility, with test drivers receiving rigorous automated driving training.

Daimler has also deepened its relationship with Baidu, specifically in R&D efforts focused on safety and autonomous driving. The goal is to understand the special requirements for automated driving in China, and to develop an early intuition regarding local technical trends, Daimler said.

Earlier this week, Baidu announced an update to its Apollo autonomous driving system, which is capable of Level 4 operations, a designation by automotive engineering association SAE International that means the vehicles take over all driving in certain conditions.

The Apollo program is an open-source autonomous driving platform that has been under development for years. Baidu isn’t interested in making the actual car — just the software that drives it. And it wants as many companies as possible to use its Apollo platform. Some 116 partners are now on the Apollo platform, including new partners Jaguar Land Rover, Valeo, Byton, Leopard Imaging and Suning Logistics.
