Valeo will work with WABCO on its next generation of sensor technologies. These include 77GHz radar and solid-state LiDAR. These sensors are key building blocks for vehicle autonomy.

Chinese Internet and artificial-intelligence company Baidu will also partner with WABCO. Baidu’s Apollo software is a leader in the autonomous passenger car space. The two companies will work together on software for commercial vehicles.
