Baidu 6th Company With Driverless Permit in California

The Chinese internet giant has become the 6th company to receive approval from the California DMV to operate autonomous cars without safety drivers on public roads. The permit allows Baidu to operate 3 driverless vehicles in parts of Sunnyvale at speeds up to 45 miles per hour (72km/h). It applies to day and night driving, but not in fog or rain.

Baidu thus joins Waymo, Nuro, AutoX, Zoox and GM Cruise, which have also received this approval.
