Baidu told local news portal Sina.com that it has tied up with Meituan-Dianping to apply its self-driving technologies to Meituan’s food delivery business. The two reportedly would start a pilot in China’s Xiong’an New Area, a state-level established in April 2017 that functions mainly as a development hub for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic triangle.
Baidu also explained that driverless food delivery is more applicable to orders of large quantities rather than single person orders.
