Baidu Aims for the Stars, Wanting to Fit 1 Million Cars With its Apollo Self-Driving System in 3-5 Years

Baidu has declared its autonomous driving ambitions at one of the auto industry’s biggest marketing events.

On the opening day of the Shanghai Auto Show on Monday, the search giant said it is aiming to have its Apollo autonomous driving system pre-installed in 1 million vehicles in the next three to five years, a target that came three months after it unveiled plans to set up a joint venture with domestic carmaker Geely to make intelligent electric vehicles powered by its self-driving technologies.
