Apollo Auto

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Once exclusive to tech giants, self-driving technology isn't rocket science anymore, as demonstrated by Apollo Auto. The goal of the Baidu-owned Apollo program is to become the Android of the autonomous driving industry. The Apollo platform has components such as perception, simulation, planning and intelligent control that enable car companies to integrate their own autonomous driving systems into their vehicles' hardware. The developer community is still new but with a lot of vendors joining to contribute more ports. One of our projects helped our client to complete self-driving license exams with the Apollo-based autopilot system. Apollo also provides an evolutionary architecture approach to adopt advanced features gradually, which enables us to integrate more sensors and functions in an agile, iterative way.
