Guangzhou, China-based self-driving startup Pony.ai is joining an exclusive club of companies that have launched autonomous ride-hailing programs. At this year’s Shanghai Auto Show, it took the wraps off of PonyPilot, a test project for “product-ready” driverless cars within a geofenced area in Guangzhou. It’s currently available to Pony.ai employees and “select affiliates” by invitation only, and CEO James Peng says it’s the culmination of years of continuous testing in the city’s Nansha district.

They copied Waymo’s test by using a geofenced area combined with a very limited rider pool. I expect China will eventually force their citizens to use SDCs in some cities. They might even ban human drivers in a few places in the future simply because dictatorships can do that.
