【福特和百度合作在中国测试自动驾驶汽车】

【福特和百度合作在中国测试自动驾驶汽车】福特公司宣布与百度合作开发自动驾驶汽车,并将于今年年底开始在北京测试。这一合作的目标是两年内达到L4标准,即在特定区域和特定天气条件下实现完全自动驾驶。另外,由于创新成本巨大,不少企业选择合作分摊成本。福特本月发布了一份声明,呼吁各厂商为自动驾驶汽车创造一套通用语言。

Ford and Baidu team up to test autonomous cars in China

The initiative aims to achieve L4 standards in two years.

There's a new partnership in the autonomous vehicle game as Ford has announced it will be teaming up with Chinese internet company Baidu to work on autonomous vehicles, with testing set to begin in Beijing by the end of the year. The initiative hopes to achieve SAE L4 (a classification that measures level of human involvement) autonomous standards, meaning that vehicles can run autonomously within specific areas and under the correct weather conditions, within the next two years. And on the roads of Beijing, Ford will be joined by Mercedes-Benz, which too got approval to test cars in the capital city earlier this summer.

Because of the immense cost of creating this new technology, many companies have partnered up to split costs. These partnerships include GM and Honda with CruiseToyota, Aisin Seiki and Denso and Volkswagen and Mobileye. But partnerships alone won't solve the immense challenge, as Cruise has reportedly been running into a host of issues. To potentially help mitigate these complexities, Ford issued a memorandum earlier this month asking for a common language to be implemented for self-driving cars, regardless of manufacturer.

Ford is also a founding member of the Apollo Committee, an advisory group for Baidu's autonomous driving open platform. Ford and Baidu had also previously agreed to cooperate on research in artificial intelligence, digital marketing, and areas of connectivity.
