China has introduced its first smart high-speed trains to connect Beijing and Zhangjiakou, the two host cities of the 2022 Winter Olympics. The carriages are equipped with an automated driving system, 5G signals, intelligent lighting as well as wireless charging docks, and can travel at a top speed of 350 kilometres per hour. Covering 174 kilometres with 10 stops, the Jing-Zhang High-speed Railway officially entered service after four years of construction.

Self-driving Fuxing bullet trains, whose name means rejuvenation, currently operate on the rail line, which is a vital part of China's expanding high-speed transport network, according to China State Railway Group.

The trains are guided by the nation's domestically developed global satellite navigation system Beidou.

It cost 58.4 billion yuan to build, according to a national plan, and cuts the travel time from Beijing to Zhangjiakou in neighbouring Hebei Province from three hours and seven minutes to 47 minutes.

According to previous reports, passengers will be able to store their snowboards in dedicated spaces and watch games live on the high-tech '2022 Beijing Winter Olympics Express'.

All stations along the railway line will have also various AI-powered robots to serve passengers. Their tasks will include transporting luggage and giving directions.
