WeRide, a global leader in Level 4 autonomous driving technology, announces the acquisition of Singapore’s prestigious M1 and T1 licenses for autonomous vehicles (AVs) from the Land Transport Authority (LTA). WeRide’s Robobus is now authorized to conduct extensive public road tests in key Singaporean areas, including One North and the National University of Singapore.

This achievement establishes WeRide as the world’s sole technology company holding autonomous driving permits in China, the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and Singapore simultaneously.

The rigorous conditions for obtaining the M1 License encompass various dimensions, including basic autonomous driving functions, obstacle recognition, avoidance maneuvers, redundancy in vehicle control by safety drivers, overall safety performance, and more. WeRide’s Robobus flawlessly completed these tasks within Singapore’s urban road traffic scenarios, meeting the nation’s exceptionally high safety standards.

WeRide’s swift three-month journey, from the arrival of the Robobus at Singapore’s Centre of Excellence for Testing and Research of Autonomous Vehicles to obtaining both M1 and T1 licenses, sets a record for the speed at which an autonomous driving company secures licenses in Singapore. This underscores WeRide’s international leadership in Level 4 autonomous driving.

In response to Singapore’s transportation challenges, WeRide positions itself as a provider of autonomous driving technology solutions and an operator of autonomous driving transportation services. Recent strategic partnerships with Singaporean companies, Woodlands Transport Services and EZ Buzz, further enhance WeRide’s network of local collaborators.

In 2023, WeRide achieved significant milestones globally, securing the first autonomous driving license in the UAE and launching a commercial operation of fully driverless Robotaxis in Beijing. These accomplishments mark WeRide’s commitment to transforming urban living through high-quality autonomous driving technology, products, and services. Moving forward, WeRide aims to overcome challenges and expand its impact on urban mobility worldwide.”
