(Yicai Global) Aug. 28 -- Global drone industry leader DJI Technology Co. (DJI), has denied rumors that it is testing unmanned vehicles following WeMedia reports on Aug. 28.
A series of photos surfaced on tech blog QbitAI purportedly showing a secret facility for testing unmanned vehicles at a facility near DJI's Shenzhen city headquarters in China's southeastern economic hub of Guangdong province.
The driverless car seen in the photos, a Ford Edge SUV, only had cameras without laser radar, QbitAI said. This system looked similar to that of NVIDIA Corp.'s [NASDAQ:NVDA] AIMotive self-driving autonomous system.
Unmanned vehicle firm AIMotive aims to develop low-cost, self-driving technologies that rely on cameras only.
DJI denied the rumors when contacted by online new outlets NetEase Technology and Tech.163.com.
