DALIAN -- JD.com has taken its self-driving delivery vehicles to more than 10 Chinese cities as it scrambles to cope with worsening labor shortages.
The country's No. 2 e-tailer began making deliveries with artificial intelligence-guided autonomous vehicles in 2018. The service is now available in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chongqing and elsewhere. The robot vehicles rely on cameras and sensors to monitor their surroundings and reach their destinations without hitting obstacles.
