On February 9, California transportation administration DMV released the data of autonomous driving in 2020, and two Chinese autonomous driving companies, autox and pony, were ranked in the top five, followed by waymo and cruise. The top five rankings are the same as last year, with Argo, a new player Ford, ranking fifth. Among them, the top three, waymo, cruise and autox, have all obtained California's all driverless license, which is the most valuable license in the world.
California DMV's annual average take over mileage (MPI) is one of the core measures of automatic driving, which reflects the comprehensive average of the annual mileage and take over mileage. It is widely considered by the industry as a more objective, quantitative and accurate measure than the test driving experience.
Data show that waymo, the world's highest valued autonomous driving company, has led the way for five consecutive years. Cruise, invested by GM and Softbank, ranks second in terms of takeover mileage. Among the top five companies, cruise's test area is concentrated in downtown San Francisco, and the test road conditions are relatively complex. Autox test area is located in San Jose, Silicon Valley, pony is concentrated in East Bay, Fremont and Irvine, Southern California, Argo test area is located in Palo Alto, Stanford.
The top three waymo, cruise and autox all have MPI in the range of 20000 to 30000 miles, that is, 30000 to 50000 kilometers. Fourth and fifth, pony and Argo, both around 10000 miles. The MPI take over mileage of the fifth to tenth companies is at the level of thousands of miles.
