As part of the Made in China 2025 strategic initiative, Beijing wants supremacy in electric cars and autonomous vehicles, Mike Dunne, CEO of ZoZo Go, writes for Axios Expert Voices.
The big picture: Waymo and other U.S. firms like Cruise and Zoox are far ahead in developing the technologies. But China could become the autonomous leader by 2025 because regulators there can pave the way for mass adoption of self-driving cars more quickly than rival countries like the U.S.
What's happening: Baidu is leading China's autonomous efforts, but when it comes to the tech, the company is 3-4 years behind Waymo. To catch up, Baidu launched an open-source development program called Apollo that executives say will become the “Android” of autonomous vehicles.
China is building a brand new city near Beijing called Xiongan that will feature high-tech infrastructure that allows autonomous cars to “talk to” their surroundings and other vehicles. Xiongan could be China’s blueprint for other key cities.
What to watch: Baidu and other Chinese AV startups rely heavily on advanced R&D centers in Silicon Valley, where they employ hundreds of software engineers.
