Robo-taxis hit the streets of Beijing – albeit a small fleet in a geo-fenced suburb

...and allow humans to take the wheel if they feel it necessary.

So, the first test is: What happens if that human driver takes the vehicle outside the geo-fenced area?

Does the vehicle simply refuse to turn outside the permitted area?

If it can happen, does it have to be manually rescued (the area it is taken to may not be mapped, plus it shouldn't be allowed to be automatically driven in an unlicensed area).
