Baidu hat bekanntgegeben, dass die "weltweit erste" Computereinheit für das Autonome Fahren einsatzbereit ist.
For the past three years, Baidu has been developing autonomous driving technology with over 100 industry partners as part of its open "Apollo" project. Now the company says the world's first production-ready compute platform specifically for autonomous vehicles is ready for application.
Baidu calls it the "Apollo Computing Unit" (APU). The ACU will support Baidu's autonomous parking feature called Apollo Valet Parking (AVP). AVP was jointly developed by Baidu and Chinese electric vehicle maker WM Motor. The automaker will be the first automaker offering the valet parking feature at scale beginning in the second half of 2020.
All of the ACU's components meet automotive-grade production requirements. Baidu said the production capacity of the ACU is 200,000 units a year.
