The BeiDou Navigation Satellite System will be put into car-hailing service vehicles throughout Beijing to help supervise since over one half of the city's buses and taxis are currently using it.
More than 90,000 BDS terminals have been installed in taxis, buses and logistics vehicles, said Kong Lei, deputy director of Beijing’s economy and informationization commission, Beijing Evening News reported today.
The capital’s move to monitor cars hailed online follows closely on the rape and murder of a woman passenger of Didi Chuxing’s car-pooling service on Aug. 25 and burgeoning reports of similar and other crimes committed by such drivers.
BDS is also committed to building a regulatory platform for car-hailing. It has reportedly developed provincial and municipal platforms for interactive oversight information based on internet, big data, and other technologies.
