The robotaxis are coming! I wrote in Forbes today that Apollo will become the third company to offer a fully driverless robotaxi service, after Waymo One in Phoenix, Arizona, and AutoX in Shenzhen.
“Baidu, one of China’s largest Internet companies, calls their new robotaxi service Apollo Go. The brand is part of a larger self-driving effort that Baidu has named Apollo. The new service will begin operations in Beijing’s Shougang Park, which is also where the 2022 Winter Olympics will take place.”
