With the enforcement of the new standard Safety Specifications for
Commercial Bus, the commercial vehicle ADAS market in China springs up,
and start-ups such as Roadefend, Maxieye, Minieye and INVO have earned
the revenue of tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of yuan.

In terms of autonomous commercial vehicle, solution providers such as
Westwell Lab, TrunkTech, PlusAI, TuSimple and FABU Technology have
arisen. Most of them are committed to unmanned port trucks with
autonomous container truck solutions. In China, there are more than
20,000 container trucks at ports, and each driver is paid about
RMB300,000 per year, an opportunity for autonomous driving replacement.

There are many challenges for the access of autonomous driving to any
particular scenario. For instance, driverless container trucks need to
be in line with the production logic and dock management system of ports
and interact with bridge cranes, tire cranes and other equipment. It
sounds like autonomous driving along fixed routes. In fact, a new
driving environment will be created in less than half a day after the
containers stacked at ports are hoisted back and forth.

Autonomous commercial vehicles are first seen as port container trucks,
which is quite similar to low-speed automated vehicle applied for
driverless delivery. Closed areas, low-speed driving, the rising labor
costs as well as the developed e-commerce and logistics in China are all
driving factors.

Commercial vehicle automated driving solution providers often partner
with commercial vehicle manufacturers to enter a target market.

After the first-kilometers and last-kilometers unmanned freight market
starts, the much larger freeway autonomous truck market will grow in a
progressive way. Initially, autonomous trucks will be realized through
platooning -- the first truck is manipulated by a driver while the
following trucks are not.

Platooning will go through CACC, Platooning, Connected Platooning and
other stages.

Europe is a leader in platooning. Individual carmakers conduct
Platooning tests, and multiple automakers organize cross-brand trucks
for driving tests and even hold European Truck Platooning Challenge.
There is an urgent need for Chinese companies to catch up in this field.

The amazingly huge autonomous driving market is full of difficulties and
challenges to ground, and the commercialization process is slower than
expected. Fortunately, the Chinese market has witnessed the world's
largest number of autonomous driving start-ups that work closely with
traditional automakers to step into various segments and solve all
technical problems around the clock. Like Chinese electric vehicle
market which is the largest in the world, China's autonomous driving
market is bound to be the biggest one around the globe.
