Baidu considers using Tesla robotaxi technology in China

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Baidu is thinking of using Tesla’s robotaxi technology or Full Self-Driving (FSD) in China. 

Baidu’s General Manager for the autonomous driving department, Xu Baoqiang, told Shanghai Securities News that the auto company would consider potential collaboration opportunities with Tesla. Baidu might use specific Tesla applications in China. 

In early May 2024, the local Chinese government supported Tesla FSD. Elon Musk had allegedly proposed testing Full Self-Driving functions in vehicles already deployed in the Chinese market, like taxis. The Tesla CEO also suggested rolling out the company’s FSD software in Chinese taxi services. 

Baidu and Tesla already have a good partnership in China. Tesla stated that it would use Baidu Maps to develop China’s version of FSD further. 

Late last month, Tesla FSD reportedly received tentative approval in China. At the time, Elon Musk was in China, holding meetings with several people in the local car industry. According to Chinese officials, Beijing had tentatively approved Tesla FSD after it cleared some critical regulatory hurdles in China. 

Tesla is still working on regulatory approval for autonomous vehicles in the United States. Other companies and some states are also working on regulations for autonomous vehicles. 

“There are a handful of states that already have adopted autonomous vehicle laws. These states are paving the way for operations, while the data for such operations guides a broader adoption of driverless vehicles. I think Ashok can talk a little bit about our safety methodology, but we expect that these states and the work ongoing, as well as the data that we’re providing, will pave a way for a broad-based regulatory approval in the U.S. at least and then in other countries as well,” said Lars Moravy, Tesla’s Vice President of Vehicle Engineering.
