Baidu’s robotaxis get Wuhan moving

Baidu Apollo has upgraded the robotaxi service Apollo Go in Wuhan. There are now 300 robotaxis in Wuhan, with a range of 95 kilometers. 

The operational area has expanded to 1,100 square kilometers and reaches a population of 4 million, making it the world's largest robotaxi operation.
