Commercial licenses for trials of driverless vehicles in open road conditions have been issued in Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei Province, China Daily reported Wednesday.

Developers of automatic vehicles including Baidu and Haylion Technologies received licenses that enable them to conduct trials in a designated area of a 28-kilometer road, according to the newspaper.

The area is a demonstration zone for testing Internet-connected cars, which has attracted more than 40 automakers from home and abroad to test their buses, taxis, logistics trucks and sanitation vehicles, it said.
