Wer hätte das gedacht? Gemäß dieser Untersuchung sind Apple und Tesla auf dem letzten Platz beim Autonomen Fahren. Ganz vorne: auch deutsche Hersteller!
In the annual report, the US-based research company ranked 19 companies involved in developing self-driving cars, scoring them on 10 criteria, from the company’s technology, vision, to its strategy to commercialise products and their quality. Based on the score, companies are divided into four categories.
Baidu was rated among “contenders” along with companies such as Toyota, Jaguar Land Rover and Hyundai Motor. The Chinese company had moved up from the “challengers” section, leaving Tesla, Uber and Apple to the lowest-ranked category. The traditional automotive giants of General Motors, Volkswagen and Ford dominated the top tier, together with Google’s Waymo self-driving unit.
