Baidu announces Apollo Lite, an AV hardware suite without lidar

Press release:

Based on the previous technical R&D and the iteration of road tests for the first half of 2019, the new sensing system that is composed of 10 cameras will help Baidu’s vehicles to conduct the end-to-end closed-loop autonomous driving on urban roads sans high-beam rotatable lidar, said Wang Liang.

Baidu revealed that the Apollo Lite has been tested on multiple road sections in Beijing and reached the world-leading level in terms of number of vehicles tested, cumulative testing mileage and vehicle’s performance in closed-loop autonomous driving on urban roads.
