The first fleet of 50 self-driving taxis developed by a Chinese startup company is expected to hit the road in East China's Anhui province by March, which may give the nation a head start over other countries in terms of commercial autonomous vehicles.

Customers will be able to order self-driving taxis in Anqing, Anhui province, through a ride-hailing app, said Wang Jing, founder of JingChi Corp.

During the test period, the cab will have a "safety officer" in the driver's seat, said Wang, a former senior vice-president at Baidu Inc who used to run Baidu's autonomous driving division.
