Car takes long drive - by itself

The car starts, steers safely to its destination 286 kilometers away and stops - all without a human driver.

The car, a Hongqi HQ3 with full intellectual property rights developed by the National University of Defense Technology, traveled in daytime, taking only three hours and 20 minutes to finish its trip under full computer and sensor control.
