Alibaba boosts startup DeepRoute.ai as new investor

Shenzen, Aug. 30, 2021

Alibaba is now an investor in self-driving startup DeepRoute.ai. The e-commerce giant owns a 19.68% stake in DeepRoute, which launched an autonomous robot cab service in Shenzen, China, last month.

DeepRoute specializes in Level 4 self-driving vehicles for OEM Tier 1 suppliers, ride-hailing and logistics companies. It was the first company to conduct tests with robotaxis in Shenzen. Its 20 self-driving cabs with safety drivers now carry adult passengers in the central business district.

Alibaba also has a stake in Chinese autonomous startup AutoX. The company is working with Cainiao to develop self-driving trucks and with China’s SAIC Motor on Internet-enabled cars.

 

Die Regierung von Shenzen prüft derzeit den Entwurf von Vorschriften für den Betrieb intelligenter und vernetzter Fahrzeuge, was die Stadt zu einem bevorzugten Standort für die Kommerzialisierung autonomer Autos in China macht.

Die Regeln werden “Chinas Gesetzgebung im Bereich der autonomen Autos direkt beeinflussen”, sagt die Anwaltskanzlei King & Wood Mallesons voraus.
