汽车132年史上首次!比亚迪发布D++开放生态:要做“长了腿”的超级手机 – ifeng Tech

What happened: Yesterday (September 5), during BYD’s Worldwide Developer Conference, the company revealed an ecosystem called D++ which will provide open APIs, vehicle data, and access to developers. BYD hopes to accelerate the process of smart vehicle development by inviting developers to create on an open-source-like platform. The first model on the platform will be the Qin Pro, a model which Baidu’s Apollo autonomous driving program has acknowledged as an L3 candidate qualified for future mass production.

Why it’s important: BYD’s step to offer an open system to developers signals an important move to collaborate. Instead of building a tightly-controlled self-owned ecosystem, the company’s cooperation gesture will quickly establish a vibrant smart vehicle ecosystem and developers’ community. The company also invited high-level officers from companies including Microsoft, Tencent labs, Alibaba Cloud, and Roadstar.ai to the conference.
