DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–“China Autonomous Retail Vehicle Industry Report, 2022” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
Reduced costs accelerate mass production with increasingly prevalent retail scenarios
Autonomous retail vehicles incorporate technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, big data, mobile internet and autonomous driving. They can move with changes in surrounding traffic autonomously. Users can hail these vehicles directly through APPs, then they will arrive at the designated location accurately to provide convenient services.
At present, the digital economy has become the key driver of China’s economic development. According to information from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China has built 1.615 million 5G base stations so far, serving more than 400 million 5G users. China is a world leader in 5G infrastructure, mobile internet ecology and e-commerce.
Smartphones have become the preferred terminals of the digital economy, smart cars will become the second-tier terminals, and autonomous retail vehicles act not only as important terminals connecting e-commerce services and smartphones, but also as basic intelligent terminals that achieve the transition from ‘people seeking services’ to ‘people seeking services’ (or ‘people seeking goods’).
Autonomous retail vehicles are widely used in intelligent scenic spots, AI parks, commercial streets, areas, plazas and other places selling high-demand products such as drinks, breakfast, food, etc. fast food, fresh produce and even shoes. The new mobile retail allows goods to search for people. Users can stop the self-driving vending vehicles by scanning the QR codes, waving and touching the screens, and pay what they choose by scanning the QR code. This mode is fast, convenient and easy.
For merchants, presenting products in front of customers in high traffic areas (subway entrances, business districts, areas, etc.) during peak hours and lunch break when demand peaks can significantly increase volume of transactions. Merchant service radius increased from 1-2 kilometers to 5 kilometers.
Policies for low-speed autonomous vehicles have been gradually improved
As low-speed autonomous vehicles, self-driving retail vehicles are used in more manageable freight transport scenarios. On May 25, 2021, the Beijing High-Level Autonomous Driving Demonstration Zone released the “Implementation Rules for the Management of Autonomous Delivery Vehicles” and issued vehicle numbers for JD’s Autonomous Delivery Vehicles .com, Meituan and Neolix. Since then, L4 self-driving technology has been verified by large-scale testing and on-road operation, which has promoted the vigorous development of China’s self-driving delivery industry.
Neolix launched nearly 1,000 autonomous vehicles in 2021 and plans to deploy another 2,000 autonomous delivery vehicles in 2022. Meituan plans to deploy 1,000 autonomous delivery vehicles in Shunyi District within three years and put into service a total of 10,000 such vehicles nationwide to achieve multi-city, multi-scenario and all-weather coverage.
So far, the Beijing High-Level Autonomous Driving Demonstration Zone has granted a total of 225 trial licenses, including 86 body codes for self-driving delivery vehicles. So far, the demonstration area has started the third phase of the construction project. In the demonstration area, 332 digital smart intersections were fully covered by the infrastructure within a radius of 60 square kilometers. Scenarios such as autonomous retail, autonomous police patrols, and micro-traffic shuttle have approached citizens.
In early March 2022, the Shanghai Municipal Transport Commission announced that a total of 13 solutions for the Shanghai Intelligent Connected Vehicle Demonstration Application Innovation Project had been confirmed after the companies’ voluntary application, evaluation site and solution review in accordance with “Implementation Plan for Expanding Shanghai Smart Connected Vehicle Demonstration Application Scenarios (2021-2023)”. Among them, 2 solutions were for the “smart retail”, requiring “no less than 20 smart retail vehicles” in operation.
