Unmanned vehicle hub

Shanghai wants to build an industrial cluster for producers of unmanned vehicles.

Hu Weiguo, head of the city’s Jinshan District, said on Saturday at the opening of the 2017 World Unmanned System Conference that the district government had planned to foster such a production base.

He said the government would encourage research, production, testing and system integration of drones, self-driving vehicles and vessels, as well as intelligence robots in the industrial base.

China’s unmanned system industry is still in its infancy, said Sun Baiyuan, secretary-general of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems of China.

He said the industry needed strategic development, network safety protection and research on market applications.

The event showed off drones used for firefighting and automated delivery, unmanned vehicles for digging and demolition, as well as self-driving boats for testing water quality.

Industry officials from the United States, Britain and Germany attended the meeting.
