The regulation issued by China's Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Ministry of Communications will be taking effect on 1st of May.
The new regulation came in after Baidu boss Robin Li test drove an autonomous vehicle of the company on Beijing's public roads last July 2017, causing controversy as there were no rules regarding that matter.
