The mass production of driverless cars is approaching

Abstract: cross industry enterprises can also take a share in the driverless car market. Today, as the automobile continues to update the development of intelligent alliance, future automobile manufacturers will no longer be isolated and fight alone. They must create an intelligent industry ecology by integrating Internet resources

as the first enterprise most promising to realize mass production of unmanned vehicles, Baidu has advanced the schedule of mass production of "Apollon" unmanned vehicles by two years. At the same time, the major traditional automobile enterprises are also methodically implementing their production plans for autonomous vehicle. Obviously, more and more intelligent man-machine technology and driving experience will become the standard configuration of future cars

in the field of domestic unmanned vehicles, Baidu has always been the first enterprise that has the hope to achieve mass production. Previously, the industry judged that Baidu driverless cars would be mass produced in 2020. However, at the recent Baidu World Conference, baidu CEO Robin Lee announced that Baidu would cooperate with Jinlong automobile to produce an driverless minibus, which would be mass produced in July 2018 ahead of schedule

this unmanned car is named "Apollon". According to the sample car seen by the economy, there is no obvious front and rear of the car. There is no steering wheel or accelerator pedal in the car. Sofas are arranged on three sides. It looks like a sofa box with a shell and wheels. "For real driverless driving, the steering wheel and driving pedals are redundant." Chenweiqiang, President of Jinlong bus Engineering Research Institute, introduced that because some parts of traditional cars have been canceled, "Apollon" is only the size of a household class a car, which can park in private parking spaces and carry 14 people, with a passenger capacity almost equivalent to 3 cars. In addition to golden dragon, JAC will also produce the first generation of "Apollon" cars in 2019. BAIC also plans to produce autonomous vehicle in 2019. Chery is scheduled to launch autonomous vehicle in 2020

in fact, in the Beijing Olympic Forest Park, there is already an driverless car on the road, the sweeper "Aosen Zhixing", which is a autonomous vehicle supported by Baidu's "Apollon" platform

however, according to experts, smart cars and unmanned cars are not the same concept. There are many descriptions about driverless classification, which can be roughly divided into four types. Among them, L2 level is an advanced driver assistance system; L3 level refers to conditional automation, which can only function under limited circumstances; L4 level refers to a highly automated system, which can complete most tasks that human drivers can complete, but is only effective in limited geographical areas - that is, areas with perfect map drawing; L5 level is a mature driverless system, which can automatically drive to any place

first of all, we should consider the demand test data. The model with the intelligent on-board system in the pull range belongs to L2 level. It has the functions of dialogue, navigation, playing music, playing, buying tickets and ordering meals, and checking the vehicle condition, which can provide driving assistance for drivers. However, the high-level unmanned vehicle is an extremely complex system and a master of artificial intelligence technology. Big data, cloud computing, high-precision maps, accurate image recognition, speech recognition and in-depth learning capabilities are indispensable. At present, there are only a few enterprises with high-level unmanned vehicle production capacity

Lilian, director of joint product development of FAW intelligent Joint Development Institute, said that at present, the world has accelerated into the era of automatic driving L3, and 2020 will be the node for major OEMs in the world to realize L3 level intelligent joint vehicle. For car companies, smart and cool man-machine technology is the core competitiveness. Cars are no longer a cold tool for balancing traffic needs, but an emotional tool that can communicate with people

cross industry enterprises can also take a share in the driverless car market. Due to the development of smart car alliance, future automobile manufacturers will no longer fight alone. They must build an intelligent industry ecology by integrating Internet resources. For example, manufacturers of laser navigators and high-precision maps, which are not necessarily connected with traditional automobile enterprises, will become an important link in the intelligent driving automobile industry chain

at present, intelligent driving has been selected as a partner by enabling traditional automobile enterprises, and Internet enterprises such as Baidu, Tencent and Alibaba have all chosen vehicle manufacturers, but some new forces in the market can not be ignored. For example, since the launch of Baidu's driverless technology platform "Apollon" in July, more than 6000 developers have voted to support the project, more than 1700 partners have joined "Apollon", and more than 100 partners have applied to use the open data of "Apollon". By the end of this year, "Apollon" will open a series of new capabilities to enable vehicles to complete automatic driving tasks under simple urban road conditions. At the same time, more data and data upload interfaces will be opened. In December, 2018, "Apollon" will open the automatic driving data of high-speed and urban roads in specific regions. By December, 2020, the data of automatic driving on high-speed and urban roads will be open to the public. These data almost cover the whole process of driverless vehicle R & D, gathering Sinopec, PetroChina, Ningbo Color Masterbatch, Yuyao, Taizhou and other leading raw material enterprises, and will provide an effective reference for the development of the whole industry
