Tesla’s China official announced on July 17 that it would provide more entertainment to car owners through ANOTA air upgrade, while saying the map data service in China would be changed to Baidu Maps. A person close to Baidu said that Tesla’s move to choose to work with Baidu, on the one hand, baidu in the field of map data has accumulated, on the other hand, perhaps in the focus of Baidu’s unmanned car business behind the high-precision map resources.
“Baidu has a lot of exploration in self-driving, the unmanned car business has a high-precision map measured by radar data, data models are 3D modeling, Tesla is likely to see this advantage. The choice of Baidu maps may be a way to pave the way for Tesla’s FSD (fully autonomous driving) push in mainland China. “
