The use of a full stack strategy gives Xiaomi's Pilot Technology total control over the software and hardware and the driving algorithm has been entirely built in-house. Lei Jun also said that the business to create wholly proprietary solutions with closed-loop data capabilities allows for rapid software and hardware updates.

Xiaomi's R&D in this space is also driven by the demand for assisted "reserved parking space" or "autonomous valet parking". The company further plans to add even more cutting-edge services such as automatic robotic arm charging.
