Cruise resumes tests: Are driverless taxis close?


In recent years, the concepts of new energy and smart cars have been heating up. Accompanying the rise of smart cars are various intelligent systems, among which autonomous driving is the most significant.

Autonomous driving has always been a controversial feature. Although most people see the merits and advantages of autonomous driving, they are simultaneously concerned about its safety. Hence, extensive and thorough testing and debugging are indispensable.

Previously, General Motors' (GM.US) autonomous driving subsidiary Cruise had announced plans to launch autonomous taxi services in nearly ten cities in the United States. However, due to various reasons, the company later laid off more than 900 people, nearly a quarter of its workforce. Several top executives, including the CEO, resigned, and the company faced investigations from relevant departments and institutions due to safety incidents, resulting in the project's indefinite pause.

Just when many thought the company might switch industries or dissolve, a turn of events hinted otherwise. Recently, rumors have suggested that Cruise has been negotiating with officials in several major cities, with the most progress being made with Phoenix. Before, Cruise had vehicles in the Phoenix area, and the city's officials seemed very open to Cruise's return.

According to insiders, Cruise may officially announce the resumption of testing in Phoenix as early as April 9th local time, though this date is not certain. A spokesperson for Cruise said the company has not set a specific timetable, and matters are still under discussion. The focus is currently on gathering information, sharing intelligence, and rebuilding trust.

Undoubtedly, autonomous driving is a hot topic for the future. Tesla has invested over ten billion dollars in developing and promoting its autonomous driving services, and General Motors, as a traditional car manufacturer, does not want to miss this opportunity.
