In a significant move to bolster innovation in smart driving, China, the world's largest auto market, is intensifying its focus on intelligent connected vehicles (ICVs). This initiative, which was first set in motion in July, forms a pivotal long-term strategic goal for the nation in its pursuit of global dominance within this emerging industry. The plan involves providing substantial support to companies within the smart vehicle supply chain, encouraging them to forge innovation consortia.


China Accelerates Towards Autonomous Driving Excellence

In a significant move to bolster innovation in smart driving, China, the world's largest auto market, is intensifying its focus on intelligent connected vehicles (ICVs). This initiative, which was first set in motion in July, forms a pivotal long-term strategic goal for the nation in its pursuit of global dominance within this emerging industry. The plan involves providing substantial support to companies within the smart vehicle supply chain, encouraging them to forge innovation consortia.

According to reports from state media on Monday, China is actively working towards establishing standards for assisted and autonomous driving functions by the year 2025. The objective is to facilitate knowledge-sharing among firms, allowing them to leverage each other's strengths to achieve groundbreaking technological advancements. Xin Guobin, the vice minister of industry and information technology, emphasized China's commitment to expediting the formulation and revision of key industry standards.

Notably, in the first half of 2023, over 42% of the new passenger vehicles in China had already achieved Level 2 autonomy, marking a significant milestone in the country's smart driving journey. These vehicles possess the capability to manage driving functions, though the driver must remain prepared to take control in the event of changing road conditions. As China forges ahead with Level 3 automation, Baidu's Apollo Go emerges as a frontrunner, securing a license in June to operate its driverless ride-hailing service in parts of Shenzhen.

This achievement positions Shenzhen as the fourth Chinese city to offer such a service, following Wuhan, Chongqing, and the capital city, Beijing. China's overarching ambition is to master the core technologies underpinning advanced autonomous driving and ultimately introduce driverless vehicles onto its roads, solidifying its status as a global industry leader. However, formidable challenges lie ahead, including geopolitical tensions impacting technology exports and fierce competition from Western counterparts like Tesla in the race to enhance smart driving technology.
