Baidu intends to design an autonomous car that recognizes the character and becomes a friend for passengers. China's tech giant is organizing the Project Apollo targeting autonomous driving cars on highways by 2020 that have passenger emotion monitoring technology to bring autonomous driving comfort and comfort.

"Autonomous driving is not a mechanical operation, but an intelligent partner, relying on big data and deep learning technology to bring the car to know you better," said Xu Yongming, the general manager of Baidu Telematics Department said Tuesday in Shenzhen.

The Apollo project was launched in April using an open source platform and is committed to providing many tools to produce a driverless vehicle. The program utilizes big data scale and complexity to include software and hardware services.

"The platform will further provide the right emotional recognition and communication, and face recognition technology lets the car know who is in it, adjust the temperature, seat position, and choose your favorite audio entertainment," Yongming said.

Fatigue monitoring is also an important feature as a unified system to determine how tired the passengers are and ensure the safety of driving. Baidu CEO Robin Li last month tested a car without a driver on a public road last month.

Baidu entered a new stage of rapid innovation in artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate revenue growth and expansion of material margins. The Project Apollo claims to have the world's largest ecosystem involving 65 car companies, 344 cooperative car models and 84 model cars involved in mass production.
