Intelligent highway test base launched in Jinan
A highway test base equipped with intelligent technology was launched on Jan 6 in Jinan, Shandong province.
The base, which is supported by Shandong Hi-Speed Group, is located at the interchange of the Baoshan-Miaoshan section of the former Binzhou-Laiwu Expressway.
After the reconstruction and expansion of the Binzhou-Laiwu Expressway, the section is no longer used for public vehicles, but serves as a closed test base instead.
The 26-kilometer-long base provides professional testing services for intelligent and autonomous driving vehicles and aims to develop into an international testing, research and service center for autonomous driving vehicles.
The base has established cooperation with more than 10 enterprises such as Sinotruk, Dongfeng Trucks and Baidu to promote the D&R of self-driving technologies.
