During the Covid-19 epidemic, Beijing launched driverless vehicles supported by the BeiDou system for delivery of takeaways, food materials, and other items in some areas.
Residents near the Hualikan vegetable station on Konggang Street in Beijing's Shunyi District place orders online can choose to be delivered by a driverless car, according to CCTV.
Once the goods are loaded, the driverless car will set off on a planned route.
Cameras on the body and LIDAR on the roof are the driverless car's eyes and sensory system.
The driverless vehicle receives signals from BeiDou satellites and relies on the BeiDou system to correct its position and routes with centimeter accuracy of positioning.
Currently, two unmanned delivery vans at Hualikan vegetable station make a dozen round trips every day and deliver nearly 60 orders.
The local government is promoting map collection and expects to gradually implement unmanned delivery trucks throughout the region by the end of the year.
