Born in 1988, Jiang Ruhai is the founder, president and general manager of Hefei-based driverless technology company Juche.
Jiang joined the Hefei Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2011 after receiving a master's degree in control engineering from the Department of Automation of the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei.
Jiang arrived in Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone in 2017 and led his team in conquering key technologies in the industrialization of unmanned driving systems, with the goal of creating China's leading unmanned driving enterprise.
Four of Jiang's entrepreneurial team members are graduates of China's University of Science and Technology.
In August 2018, Jiang initiated the establishment of Juche with the Hefei Institute of Technology Innovation and Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Jiang led a technical team to construct an unmanned shuttle bus in April 2019, keeping the cost under 100,000 yuan ($15,753.61). It offers a significant cost advantage over other unmanned vehicles on the market, breaking the industrial bottleneck of autonomous driving from high-cost R&D to low-cost mass production. It is also the first low-cost driverless shuttle bus that can be mass-produced in China, according to Jiang.
To date, the company has developed a series of unmanned vehicles with low-cost unmanned systems for transportation, logistics and security sectors. The company has obtained more than 20 intellectual property authorizations in the field of driverless vehicle technology.
