Self-driving car company announced on Wednesday that it has partnered with Chinese tech giant Meituan to build unmanned vehicles for food delivery services. This is the latest move by the Toyota-backed unicorn to license its technology and search for new revenue sources. The two companies expect that by the end of 2024, at least 10,000 delivery robots will travel on busy urban roads in Chinese first-tier cities. These robots will be equipped with Pony’s highly autonomous driving controller and based on Nvidia’s Drive Orin platform. Initially, Pony designed its own fully self-driving car fleets for ride-hailing, but now it is ramping up its efforts to develop autonomous driving systems for carmakers and businesses catering to the autonomous industry, from freight transport to public sanitation. Other partners include state-owned automaker FAW and Softbank-backed food delivery startup Neolix. [ release, in Chinese]
