Baidu will launch its self-driving car in the next half of this year, said Wang Jin, Senior Vice President of Baidu at the China Cloud Computing Services Summit recently. However, as Baidu does not produce car itself, it will work with a third party automobile manufacturer.
A series of technologies such as the big data, Baidu Map, artificial intelligence and Baidu Brain will be applied on the self-driving car.
Previously, in order to enhance the accuracy of Baudu Map, Baidu acquired a Finnish technology company.
In addition, based on computer technology and artificial intelligence, Baidu Brain can simulate the thinking mode of the human brain. With 20 billion parameters, Baidu Brain can store information and "think". So to speak, Baidu has been fully prepared in the field of unmanned driving.
In fact, the Google self-driving car has been through the road test. In the future, the comparison between the self-driving cars of Baidu and Google will probably be a hot topic.
