Volvo plans to start self-driving vehicle experiments in China - with u to 100 cars
According to a report from the Reuters news agency, Swedish carmaker Volvo has said it plans to launch a self-driving experiment in China involving up to 100 cars.
"I think people probably don't realise quite how much China's putting into advanced technology in cars," Prof David Bailey of Aston Business School told the BBC.


"Google has had a far smaller number of cars in tests as far as I can work out, so it is significant."
Volvo is owned by a Chinese firm, Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co.
Autonomous driving can make a significant contribution to road safety," said Hakan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo.
