The world's first driverless tram rolls off the production line in Qingdao, Shandong province, July 28, 2017. It is 35.19 meters long, 2.65 meters wide and can carry as many as 380 passengers. It can travel up to 70 kilometers per hour. "For the first time the tram is equipped with automatic train control system (ATC), which is like an intelligent brain for it," said Li Yanyi, an engineer at Chinese car rail manufacturer CRRC Qingdao Sifang. Li said the "brain" could automatically help the tram start, run and stop, with drivers simply there to support the system.
