Baidu accuses rival of stealing self-driving technology
    2017-December-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BAIDU, China’s largest search engine, is suing a former executive, accusing him of stealing self-driving car technology, reports said Friday, as competition in the sector heats up.

In court filings, Baidu demanded U.S.-based Jingchi Inc., a startup founded by the former manager of its autonomous driving unit, to stop using its technology to develop autonomous cars, according to zhichanli.cn, a website focused on intellectual property and technology innovation.

The tech giant is seeking 50 million yuan (US$7.61 million) in compensation, the website said.

Jingchi Inc. was founded in April and raised US$52 million in September to expand its research and development of autonomous driving technology.

“Baidu’s lawsuit has no factual basis and our lawyer will respond to it factually and legally,” Jingchi’s CEO Wang Jing said in a reply to Tencent news, adding that the company is an “indisputable pacemaker” in China’s self-driving car sector.

Baidu said that it would not comment on the case now that it was subject to judicial process.

The search giant established a US$1.5-billion fund in September dedicated to developing driverless cars, and is set to launch its first models.

But it can expect strong competition from Jingchi, which has said it will move its headquarters to China and plans to “demonstrate technological strength in two weeks,” according to Tencent news.(SD-Agencies)
