|Autonomous driving leads the future|
At the Shanghai Auto Show, many car companies have tacitly applied the achievable L3 level autopilot technology to the new models that are officially on the market or about to be launched, and applied the L4 and L5 level autopilot technologies to new concept models.
The new generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be the first to introduce Mercedes-Benz Level 3 automatic driving technology, or it may allow the driver to let go completely. GAC Aion LX supports L3 level automatic driving function. Among the new forces, there is also the Xiaopeng P7 equipped with an automatic driving chip, which has L3 level automatic driving capability; the quasi-mass production model of the zero-running car is unveiled, which can realize the L3 level intelligent driving function.
The new car represents the current stage of planning, while the concept car reflects the company’s thinking and forward-looking layout of the future car. Concept cars that support the L4 level of autonomous driving include Volkswagen ’s ID. ROOMZZ, Audi AI: ME, BMW Vision iNEXT, and Nissan IMs.
In addition, L5 level autonomous driving technology is also rarely shown. Icona Nucleus concept car is equipped with L5 level autopilot capability, without steering wheel, acceleration / brake pedal, etc. The WEY-X concept car is equipped with an L5 level automatic driving system, advertised as “future car”.
Smarter and more humane travel in the future
Shanghai Auto Show also attracted many technology companies and hardware and software suppliers to participate in the exhibition.
By cooperating with 14 car companies including Mercedes-Benz, EXEED Starway, FAW Pentium, Ford, Great Wall Haval, etc., Baidu displayed more than ten models equipped with small car OS and core AI technology to provide more Humanized car service.
