Baidu keeps ramping up its autonomous driving ambitions.
Apollo Go, Baidu’s robotaxi service, aims to be in 65 cities by 2025 and 100 cities by 2030.
Baidu has so far racked up over 16 million kilometers (10 million miles) of L4, self-driven distance, in terms of improving its driving tech. That’s up from 6.2 million miles reported in its first-quarter results.
These enormous figures have limited substance unless we know how many of these rides actually happen on busy city roads rather than designated routes in enclosed areas.
