Tesla Teams Up with China’s Baidu for Full Self-Driving Upgrade

Daniel Kim Views  

According to a CNN report on the 10th, Tesla has taken one step closer to launching its Full Self-Driving (FSD) service in China by agreeing to receive upgraded map software from Chinese portal company Baidu.

Baidu announced on the 8th that it would provide Tesla with lane-level navigation services.

“With the support of Baidu’s lane-level map, Tesla’s navigation can accurately render lane changes on the road the user is currently on, upgrading from providing road-level guidance to providing lane-level guidance,” said Baidu. 

Baidu has provided map services to Tesla since 2020, but these have been limited to road-level accuracy, meaning they are less accurate than lane-level services. As a result, the possibility of Tesla launching its FSD service in China within this year has increased.

While Tesla does offer Autopilot features in China, it has not yet released FSD due to the country’s data regulations. According to Chinese regulations, all self-driving systems must obtain mapping qualifications before operating on public roads, and foreign companies must partner with approved Chinese companies.

If the FSD service is launched in China, Tesla will be positioned to expand its sales in the world’s largest electric vehicle market.
