Baidu Wants to become the Android of Driverless

Baidu fast becoming a major player in the race for driverless:

Through the program called Apollo, Baidu’s artificial intelligence technologies are made available to car makers for free as a brain for their cars. In exchange, Baidu gets access to the data to make their algorithms smarter. It is hoped that Apollo will give any car manufacturer a fair shot at creating a viable product, just like Android did for smartphone makers.

It worked for Google. Might it work for Baidu?
