Chinese tech company Baidu revealed its latest self-driving car, the Apollo Go. The Apollo RT6 has the same driving abilities as a driver with 20 years of experience, says Baidu. According to the manufacturer, each Apollo RT6 will cost 250,000 yuan, or £31,000. It also has a total of 38 sensors. “This massive cost reduction will enable us to deploy tens of thousands of [automated vehicles] across China,” said co-founder and chief executive Robin Li during the company’s annual technology meeting. For now, self-driving vehicles in China must still be driven by a safety driver. But in the future, the RT6’s removable steering wheel might be swapped for more chairs, vending machines, tables, or game consoles, claims Baidu. In the second half of 2023, the RT6 will be added to Baidu’s group as a small experiment, with the goal of having 100,000 of them on the roads by the end of the decade.
