Baidu is often compared to "Chinese Google", and it is not only on the Internet that the comparison is relevant, since the Asian search engine now wishes to embark on the design of autonomous cars.
Baidu, the Chinese search engine, wants to have its own autonomous car. According to the BBC, the firm could even unveil a working prototype by the end of this year. If the announcement may surprise, Baidu is not yet its first attempt and has already worked with manufacturers like BMW in the past.
The group could approach Chinese manufacturers to offer its autonomous car, and the latter could be displayed at a very attractive price. Baidu is not very talkative for the moment, apart from his announcement, no details have been shared yet. We will have to wait to find out if this is a serious announcement, or a simple call.
