Baidu is putting some serious cash behind its self-driving auto push after it announced a $1.5 billion fund that's focused on backing autonomous driving tech companies. The funds will be distributed by Baidu's Apollo Fund.
According to a statement from the firm, newly joined members include Hyundai Motor, ROS, ESD electronics, Neousys Technology, and autonomous driving start-ups such as Momenta and iDriver+ Technologies.

Following other big tech companies such as Tesla and Google announcing their commitment and development to autonomous vehicle technology, Baidu hopes that the investment fund will help establish Baidu in the fast developing market.
