A driverless truck has been unveiled to the public at the 2017 World Autonomous Vehicle Ecosystem Conference in Shanghai, reports

Minister of Industry and Information Technology, Miao Wei, was the first to test drive the vehicle.

The "Shaanxi Auto X6000," installed with driverless technology developed by TuSimple Technology, is a Level 4 driverless vehicle.

This means it can navigate an increased number of environments, and is considered the 'gold-standard' for self-driving vehicles.

It's been outfitted with ten separate cameras and positional radar which allows the truck to run upto speeds of 100-kilometers per hour without a driver.

TuSimple Technology had already completed a 656 kilometer test from Californian to Arizona in the United States.

It has been co-working with Shaanxi Automotive, as well as Chinese firm Sinotruck, to introduce driverless trucks in the Chinese market as early as in 2019.
