Baidu Begins Public Self-Driving Vehicle Testing In Wuzhen, China

“The cars switch lanes, negotiate intersections, pass slower cars and even make U-turns, achieving a max top speed of 60 km per hour (37 mph) in accordance with the local speed limit. … A display within the car shows passengers info, including traffic conditions and objects along the path.”

As it stands, Baidu is reportedly aiming for first production of commercial self-driving vehicles to begin in 2018, with a broader rollout targeted for 2021, presumably after most kinks have been worked out. Notably, Baidu recently began public self-driving vehicle testing in California as well, after receiving a permit from the California DMV.
