Analog Devices Inc partnered with Baidu Inc to advance development of autonomous driving technologies

U.S. chipmaker Analog Devices Inc said on Tuesday it had partnered with Baidu Inc to advance the development of the Chinese search engine giant’s autonomous driving technologies.

Analog Devices and Baidu will jointly develop sensing and navigation applications such as radar and lidar for Project Apollo, reports Reuters.

After years of internal development, Baidu last year decided to open its autonomous driving technology to third-parties to accelerate development and help it compete with U.S. firms Tesla and Google.

Analog Devices said the collaboration will also focus on providing solutions aimed at “intelligent connectivity important for the future of smart traffic”.

Earlier in the day, car maker BMW signed an agreement to join Baidu’s Apollo as a board member.
