An unmanned delivery vehicle developed by White Rhino made a test run on March 15 in the Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone, marking Hefei city's first public road test for unmanned delivery vehicles.
In the first phase of the test, the vehicle will deliver fresh food and goods to customers in a three-to-five-kilometer radius around the supermarkets on the test roads.
Customers will be able to order hourly deliveries by placing orders through retail platforms, and have their goods delivered by White Rhino's autonomous vehicles.
The road test focuses on testing the comprehensive performance of the White Rhino unmanned delivery vehicles in terms of their response to obstacles, pedestrians, non-motor vehicles, motor vehicles, and traffic signals.
White Rhino is a L4 autonomous delivery vehicle developer. In 2020, the company launched commercial operations for supermarket deliveries. Its delivery fleet has undergone testing in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Shenzhen, among other cities.
