LOS ANGELES — Intelligent driving group Baidu is rolling out a new autonomous driving pilot in the U.S., working in partnership with Access Services, Los Angeles County’s paratransit provider, TechCrunch reports.
The small-scale pilot will cover a few short routes in the Los Angeles area, which are still being determined based on analysis of the 45 fixed routes that Access Services oversees in the area. The pilot will service communities of riders, including seniors with mobility issues and clients covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Baidu and Access Services aim to have this project, which will be powered by its Apollo open autonomous driving platform, up and operating by the end of 2018. For the full story, click here.
