The hottest Baidu Wang Jin pushes China to the for

  • Detail

Baidu Wang Jin: using artificial intelligence to push China to the forefront of driverless driving it is no secret that Baidu is developing driverless cars. This is a major event, not only for Baidu itself, but also for China's automobile industry and even the whole of China. The question that people are concerned about is: how does Baidu compete with American automakers? Wang Jing, senior vice president and general manager of the autonomous driving business unit of Baidu, believes that in the past, China's automobile industry started too slowly and entered the market more than 100 years later than foreign competitors. Driverless cars rely on new technologies such as artificial intelligence, which is now a good opportunity for China to catch up

recently, Wang Jin was interviewed by foreign media. He talked about Baidu's development plan for driverless cars

the following is the full text of the report:

China should be at the forefront of driverless cars

when Wang Jin was still studying for his master's degree in Florida, he found three part-time jobs at the same time and managed to scrape up $30000 to buy his first car, a dodge. Now, he is a senior vice president of Baidu, responsible for the company's driverless car project, and his income is naturally much higher. Wang Jin has a new mission: to push China to the forefront of the era of driverless cars

Baidu has joined the driverless car race. Google has been developing driverless cars since 2009. The test car has driven 2million miles. Later this year, it plans to set up an independent subsidiary of driverless cars. Tesla CEO musk also said that within two years, the car will be able to drive from Los Angeles to New York through automatic driving. General motors and Ford are also actively developing driverless cars

the powerful opponent did not intimidate Wang Jin. Wang Jin, 51, believes that the era of intelligent and driverless cars is coming. This is a fairer competition, and China is fully capable of dominating

Wang Jin said: Chinese automobile manufacturers started very late, about 100 years late. Many core technologies, such as engine technology, were not in their own hands. In electric vehicles and intelligent vehicles, the core technology has shifted from engine and gearbox to artificial intelligence. In these fields, China's technical strength is close to that of the United States. Therefore, China has the opportunity to catch up and seize the leading position

robot brain

Robin Lee, founder and CEO of Baidu, has invested a lot of money in the field of artificial intelligence. He attaches great importance to deep learning technology, which can improve the search quality and make computers infinitely close to human brain. Baidu also invited Andrew ng, a well-known computer scientist, to join the company. Since 2014, Wu has become the chief scientist of Baidu. His specialty is robotics and machine learning

Wang Jin thinks that the technology of automatic driving can be developed by using artificial intelligence, data map and link technology. p>

Caohe, an analyst at Beijing national securities, believes that it will take a long time for Chinese enterprises to turn driverless cars into a huge industry. He said: Baidu and other enterprises still have a long way to go before they want to mass produce and sell driverless cars. The road conditions in different regions are very different. Within five years, no company is likely to turn driverless cars into the application capital industry of large-scale production of waste foam granulators

in other words, to develop unmanned, we need to measure the unknown signals. Driving a car costs a lot of money. According to Baidu's estimate, the annual revenue of China's automobile sales, buses, taxis and related transportation services will exceed $1.5 trillion. Baidu can greatly stimulate the growth of revenue as long as it gets a little bit of it

Boston Consulting Group predicts that by 2017, driverless cars will be able to navigate automatically in traffic jams. Many dealers will sell cars that support automatic parking. By 2018, cars will be able to drive automatically on high-speed companies and change lanes. By 2022, cars will be able to drive automatically in cities. By 2025, cars will be fully self driving

Michael Dunne, President of Dunne Automotive Co., Ltd. in Hong Kong, said: the future of the automotive industry has three cores: electric, car sharing and driverless cars. China Internet Corporation will become a leader in these fields, such as Baidu, which has huge cash and is deeply trusted by people. So far, Google has obvious advantages in the field of driverless vehicles, "said Christian wolfsberger, business development manager of Engel's composite technology business, but don't underestimate China's competitors

Wang Jin thinks that Baidu has the upper hand over Google and other auto makers, because other companies only test artificial intelligence in the United States, and they can only master local road information. 600kN horizontal tensile testing machine 1000KN horizontal tensile testing equipment is for the test piece with a length of 500~3100mm

China Road

many people return to China after many years abroad and find that they are not used to driving in China. They are afraid to drive in China because the road environment is too chaotic. Wang Jin said, for example, if you train robots on American roads, it will be difficult for them to adapt to China's cross roads. Our machines are different. They are trained with Chinese roads

Baidu is negotiating with the regulatory authorities of various cities in China, hoping to allow driverless cars to drive in 10 cities within 3 years. Wang Jin said that a few people will try Baidu's driverless cars in closed environments (such as venues) this year

in the past three months, Baidu and BYD have cooperated to install Baidu autobrain system in cars. It is a software package that can help drivers drive BYD cars, observe the environment and give instructions for cars. Wang Jin said that Baidu would also reach similar cooperation with U.S. automakers. He declined to disclose the names of the automakers

Wang Jin regards the autobrain system as the core of Baidu's driverless technology. Baidu has developed its own self driving map, which records 3D road data. The map is accurate to cm, which can facilitate car positioning. Wang Jin also said that Baidu's target recognition and environmental awareness technology can enable cars to accurately detect and follow other cars. It can also accurately identify road signs and accurately control distance and speed

in terms of driverless cars, Baidu will have many choices in the future. Wang Jin said that one day, you may see autonomous vehicle of Baidu brand running on the streets, or you may find that Baidu has become a supplier, providing Baidu autobrain system for automobile assemblers, and you may also find that a large part of Baidu's profits come from the business of driverless cars

one thing is certain, that is, the automobile industry is shifting to driverless cars. Wang Jin said: my grandchildren will definitely have driverless car driver's licenses
