On July 3, the nation’s first batch of urban microcirculation unmanned minibuses were unveiled at Suzhou HSR New Town.

Among them, the unmanned minibuses were deployed by the domestic self-driving company Qingzhou Zhihang (QCraft.ai).

It can cope with various urban complex traffic scenarios, with a running speed of 20km/h-50km/h. It aims to open the era of intelligent urban “microcirculation” traffic and solve the “last three kilometers” traffic problem in cities.

The unmanned minibus deployed by QCraft.ai this time has 9 seats, while retaining the driver’s seat, making it the first unmanned minibus in China to run on a public road in the cities.

The unmanned minibus unveiled this time is the world’s first practical application of the “Driven-by-QCraft” L4 autonomous driving solution.

“Driven-by-QCraft” is an autonomous driving solution launched by QCraft.ai that focuses on complex urban traffic scenarios. It focuses on low- and medium-speed applications on fixed routes, and aims to help partners build urban unmanned mobile spaces and build micro-circulation systems on urban roads.

According to the plan, QCraft.ai’s unmanned minibuses will be demonstrated in Suzhou HSR New Town. After being put into operation, it is expected to benefit hundreds of thousands of people around for transportation.
