Baidu launches robot truck on the market
Chinese internet company Baidu is expanding its ambitions in electric mobility. The company, which operates China's eponymous and largest internet search engine, has announced the series production of a fully electric truck. In 2023, the so-called "robot truck" Xingtu is expected to hit the market. The vehicle will initially be equipped with Level 3 automation, which will later be increased to Level 4. Level 3 enables autonomous driving in traffic jams or on highways. Its system performs operations such as blinking, changing lanes or keeping in lane autonomously without the driver having to constantly monitor the system.
