Volvo, a carmaker, and Baidu, a Chinese Internet giant, are joining forces to develop cars with four-speed autopilot autopilot. Volvo will be responsible for the automotive platform and Baidu will develop the software.
Hakan Samuelson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars Group, said, "The idea is to develop a car.
According to Samuelson, a new type of unmanned vehicle does not usually look the same as a regular vehicle. This contract means that the vehicle the company made will be fully electric and intended to be used by unmanned taxis.
The company's goal is to develop a fourth level unmanned vehicle. This means that the car can move completely autonomously and the driver does not have to follow or control the road in difficult situations.
China is the largest automotive market in the world and is expected to play a leading role in the global autopilot automotive market. According to McKinsey & Co., Volvo announced that by 2030 the local autonomous vehicle market will reach $ 500 billion.
