China is rapidly catching up with the West in terms of driver automation technology. Many Chinese companies, including Baidu, XPeng, Li Auto, NIO, and Huawei, are making significant progress in developing driverless taxis and driver-assistance systems for electric vehicles. These systems, comparable to Tesla's "full self-driving" software, rely on artificial intelligence rather than detailed mapping and coding. Chinese regulators have also shown openness to allowing "Level 3" automated driving on public roads, where the human driver no longer needs to pay attention under certain conditions. Analysts expect China to dominate the rollout of Level 3 vehicles in the coming years. This progress in driver automation complements China's already dominant position in electric vehicle technology. Overall, China's advancement in this area could potentially challenge the West's leadership in automation.
