The production and safety guidelines are composed of three parts: system safety, driving safety, safety education and ethical thinking. The system safety part aims to minimize design defects and operational errors and prevent cyber threats; the driving safety part mainly involves the interaction between vehicles and various road conditions, pedestrians and other vehicles during driving; safety education and ethical thinking part It covers compliance guidelines for the production and operation of autonomous vehicles.
