Baidu’s self-driving platform is set to power some of Walmart’s deliveries in the U.S., the search giant said Wednesday.
California-based autonomous-vehicle startup udelv will use Baidu’s Apollo platform for multiple projects this year, including deliveries for Walmart, udelv said recently at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Walmart is the world’s largest company by revenue, and has seen strong growth in online revenue recently. But it still trails U.S. market leader Amazon in e-commerce sales.
In China, Baidu is offering Apollo solutions to autonomous-vehicle manufacturer Neolix.
