No driver, no driver cabin or a driving wheel - a 5G autopilot bus completed road trials in Southwest China's Chongqing, marking the city's first driverless bus trial in a 5G network environment.

The tests were carried out in a 5G network-covered area, where the network helps the bus adjust speed, and detect obstacles and traffic lights. Powered by electricity, the bus can hold 12 passengers and run at a maximum of 20 km per hour.

The technology was developed by Chongqing Mobile, Huawei, Southeast University and French company EasyMile, and will be applied in various areas, such as campuses, airports and scenic spots.
