Daimler gets OK for self-driving vehicle tests in Beijing

BEIJING -- Beijing has given the green light to Daimler testing self-driving cars on public roads, making it the first international automaker to be granted such a license in the Chinese capital, the company said in a statement.

Beijing has given Daimler, owner of the Mercedes-Benz brand, a permit for level 4 road use in the capital city after extensive close-course testing, the company said in the statement.

China has issued licenses allowing self-driving vehicles to be road tested to several automakers this year in Shanghai and Beijing, including Shanghai-based SAIC, electric vehicle start-up NIO and tech giant Baidu.

To qualify for the license, the company said Mercedes vehicles equipped with additional technical applications from Baidu Apollo undertook extensive testing in Beijing and Hebei.
