VIDEO: China deploys self-driving cars to deliver foods; disinfect places in the streets

As a way to reduce the spread of coronavirus, China, according to Mashable, is using self-driving vans called Hercules to deliver foods and disinfect streets.

In a Tweet shared by Mashable on Saturday, June 20, it said that the vans have been doing the delivery and sanitisation works for the past two months in 16 communities in Zibo, the eastern part of China.

Hercules makes use of lidars, cameras, and complex algorithms to get itself from one place to the other.

It has the capacity to carry a cargo of up to 1,000 kilograms in its compartment.

The developer of the vehicle, UDI, has also been engaging a small fleet of the vans in other places like Suzhow and Shenzhen.

They are especially used to deliver meal boxes to workers and disinfect areas near hospitals. It should be noted that all the self-autonomous vehicles have made 2,500 trips.
