Head of autonomus cars development at Baidu, Wang Jing, declared that the company is using cars from Ford's Lincoln in its U.S. testing. Wang Jing refused to give other details, and joked about China's third World Internet Conference in Wuzhen.

The two companies decided to end the cooperation due to different oppinions on further research, according to BMW's China Ceo Olaf Kastner's declaration for Reuters at the Guangzhou auto show, began on Friday. "We now have found that the development pace and the ideas of the two companies are a little different.". The exact point of disagreement was not specified, and other details were not offered.

Automotive and tech industries agree on the fact that in the near future cars will be capable of driving themselves completly, revolutionizing this way the transportation industry. This made almost all carmakers and companies to invest in the development of the technology.

Baidu offered test drives on autonomus driving prototypes at Wuzhen conference, but the prototypes were developed with Chinese automakers like BYD Co, Cherry or BAIC Motor. In the test drives, cars show their technological capabilities by automatically avoiding bicycles and surpassing cars driving at different speeds. 

Olaf Kastner declared that the two companies decided to end their collaboration after developing the automatic overtaking capability. He added that the two companies will continue their partnership on high-definition maps, an essential trade for autonomus cars.

Accordind to Kastner, BMW will enlarge their team on research and development for autonomus cars in China. 
Both BMW and Baidu are planning to commercialize the fully autonomus cars by the end of 2021. The officials also added that nearly every car will have self-driving capability by the year of 2030.
