Chinese Internet Giant To Share Self-Drive Technology

Chinese Internet Giant To Share Self-Drive Technology

Home / News | posted on 19 04 2017

China's equivalent to Google, Baidu, has announced that it will share much of its technology used for self-driving cars.

The internet giant has been developing its autonomous vehicle system 'Apollo' since 2015. Baidu's group president Qi Lu said it wanted to create a "collaborative ecosystem" using its strengths in artificial intelligence (AI) to "encourage greater innovation and opportunities, making better use of our technology to drive the evolution of the entire industry". Although it is not clear how developed the Baidu system is, it is clearly intent in positioning itself to become the de-facto operating system for a large number of vehicle manufacturers operating out of China and possibly further afield also.
