In fact, Volvo has always been a pioneer in the field of automatic driving in the world. As early as 2005, Volvo set up an automatic driving project team, which formally put the commercialization of automatic driving on the agenda. In September 2012, Volvo completed the first successful driverless fleet project in history. Three driverless teams composed of V60, XC60 and S60 were guided by a guide truck in bassac Ronas highway was driven 200 km / h at 90 km / h.
In recent years, Volvos autopilot technology has developed rapidly. In 2017, it announced that it would skip L3s direct development of L4-L5 level automatic driving, and announced that it would launch mass production of autopilot in 2021, and later the plan was postponed to 2022.
In addition to Didi, Volvo has reached cooperation with Uber, NVIDIA, waymo and other enterprises to jointly develop automatic driving technology in the future. Waymo is part of Googles autopilot car program. In 2016, it was separated from Google and became a new subsidiary of Alphabet (Google parent company). Therefore, the cooperation between Waymo and Volvo was regarded as a milestone in the milepost of global automatic driving technology. According to the public information, the focus of cooperation between the two sides is to develop L4 level automatic driving technology, that is, highly automated driving technology.
With the rapid development of automatic driving in China, the giants have entered the bureau one after another
As a leading AI company in China, Baidu has been ambitious in automatic driving and has been working hard for a long time. It has established a Apollo team specializing in automatic driving. As early as 2018, baidu cooperated with Changsha City of Hunan Province to build a demonstration city of autonomous driving and vehicle road collaborative innovation. During this period, baidu Apollo has accumulated a lot of practical experience through various tests such as automatic driving vehicle on the road, vehicle road coordination, test ride, etc. In the first half of the year, Baidus driverless taxi has made great progress. The driverless taxi has been officially launched in Changsha, but it is still in a small pilot operation state.
In addition to software capability and algorithm ability, automatic driving has very high requirements for communication transmission, which not only requires the communication quality to be guaranteed, but also has very strict standards in terms of delay. As we all know, 5gs features of high bandwidth, low delay and high reliability can meet the communication requirements of automatic driving, which is also one of the reasons for Huaweis automatic driving.
In May, Huawei announced that it would jointly build a 5g automobile ecosystem with the first batch of 18 automobile enterprises, including FAW, SAIC, GAC, BAIC, Dongfeng, Changan and BYD, so as to accelerate the commercial process of 5g technology in the automotive industry. In an interview last year, Xu Zhijun, Huaweis rotating chairman, said, our ultimate goal is to achieve complete driverless driving, and we can do whatever Tesla can do now..
In addition to Didi, another online car Hailing enterprise, Cao Cao, is also making efforts to drive automatically. Liu Jinliang, chairman of the board of directors, said that in the second half of the year, Cao Cao will join Geely, Volvo and auto driving suppliers with international background to carry out automatic driving test, hoping to realize manned test before the Asian Games in Hangzhou.
Outside Changsha, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing have also released the automatic driving test and issued the automatic driving test license. Beijing is the longest open driving test road in China, with 200 roads of 699.58 km. By June 2020, the safe driving mileage of automatic driving vehicles in Beijing has exceeded 1.58 million kilometers, and a total of 77 vehicles from 13 enterprises have been issued with temporary license plates.
According to the McKinsey report, Chinas automatic driving will exceed US $1 trillion and has the potential to become the worlds largest market for autopilot and will increase the liquidity profit of Chinas self driving automobile industry by at least 60 billion US dollars.
