On the morning of August 20, Li Xiaopeng, Minister of transportation, came to the newbird network headquarters for investigation. It is reported that in front of the rookie unmanned express vehicle, Li Xiaopeng asked Alibaba about the new progress of unmanned driving. He said that unmanned express vehicles play a role in semi closed environment such as campus. In the future, smart roads and intelligent cars can be combined to accelerate the wider use of unmanned express vehicles, which can be included in the pilot project of transportation power.
Driverless technology is currently the world’s leading R & D technology. Many car companies have launched autopilot cars to test, and Internet and technology companies have also deployed them. At present, the automatic driving vehicle is in the stage of mass production and commercialization. From the point of view of safety assurance, the development of AI technology is the key to the landing practice of the autopilot industry. The development of automatic driving technology also needs the support of multi core technology. China should also add a lot of industrialization practice of L4 automatic driving vehicle, increase technological innovation and capital investment, and seize the historical opportunity of “overtaking corners”.
Analysis of driverless Market
In the driverless, intelligent vehicle (ADAS) and Internet of vehicles (v2x) can be said to be the internal and external requirements of unmanned driving. Intelligent vehicle is equipped with advanced driving assistance system (ADAS), which can sense the surrounding environment and analyze the environment of the vehicle, so as to make corresponding response according to the environmental changes. Intelligent vehicle can be regarded as the transition of driverless vehicle, and also the main research and development direction of traditional automobile enterprises. Because the intelligent vehicle runs in a complex environment including vehicle, pedestrian, facilities and other factors, it is necessary to establish the information exchange between the vehicle and other factors in the driving environment in order to achieve full automatic driving, that is, v2x. Only when the internal and external requirements are met can automatic driving be realized.
It is predicted that the scale of China’s intelligent vehicle market will be about 73.5 billion yuan in 2020. Among them, blind area monitoring, fatigue early warning, high and low beam auxiliary, adaptive cruise and other links account for a large proportion of intelligent vehicles. In 2020, the relatively low growth rate of intelligent vehicle market scale is mainly due to the slowdown of China’s automobile market due to multiple factors such as epidemic situation.
With the help of the new generation of information and communication technology, the Internet of vehicles is to realize the full * bit network connection of the interior, vehicle and vehicle, vehicle and road, vehicle and people, and vehicle and service platform, so as to improve the level of automobile intelligence and automatic driving ability, and build a new format of automobile and traffic service. In recent years, the domestic Internet of vehicles market has developed rapidly. For example, the Ministry of industry and information technology has issued “guidelines for the construction of national Internet of vehicles industry standard system (General requirements)”, “guidelines for the construction of national Internet of vehicles industry standard system (Information Communication)”, “guidelines for the construction of national Internet of vehicles industry standard system (electronic products and services)”, etc., and the local government has constantly put forward guiding opinions and suggestions plan. China’s Internet of vehicles industry has broad prospects, and the market scale of Internet of vehicles will exceed 190 billion yuan in 2019. With the further application of Internet of vehicles technology, the scale of China’s Internet of vehicles market continues to expand, which is expected to exceed 205 billion yuan in 2020.
Promotion of unmanned driving
In February 2020, the national development and Reform Commission, together with 11 national ministries and commissions, jointly released the “smart car innovation and development strategy”. The strategy points out the vision of realizing the large-scale production of conditional intelligent vehicles in 2025 and the complete completion of China’s standard intelligent vehicle system in 2035. It also points out the main tasks of intelligent vehicle development, such as developing core technologies, improving infrastructure construction, and improving relevant laws and regulations system. It also announces the guarantee measures such as strengthening organization and implementation and improving supporting policies. We believe that the strategy shows the determination and direction of the development of intelligent vehicles at the national central level, which is conducive to the development of intelligent automobile industry chain.
Among them, the domestic strategic goal is to realize the scale production of conditional intelligent vehicles in 2025. The strategic objectives of the “intelligent vehicle innovation and development strategy” are: by 2025, the technical innovation, industrial ecology, infrastructure, regulations and standards, product supervision and network security system of China’s standard intelligent vehicles will be basically formed, and the scale of intelligent vehicles with conditional automatic driving will be realized In order to realize the market-oriented application of highly automatic driving intelligent car in specific environment. Positive progress has been made in the construction of intelligent transportation system and smart city related facilities. Regional coverage of vehicle wireless communication network (lte-v2x, etc.) has been realized. The new generation of vehicle wireless communication network (5g-v2x) has been gradually applied in some cities and expressways, and the high-precision space-time benchmark service network has achieved full coverage. From 2035 to 2050, China’s standard intelligent vehicle system will be fully built.
At present, many cities in China, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other places, have opened the unmanned driving test. With the landing of unmanned driving test, the scene application of this technology will be more and more mature, and the market will be further expanded.
In the future, unmanned driving technology will be integrated with more application scenarios. For example, the in-depth application of “driverless + logistics” will make the express work more efficient and intelligent, and will also bring new business forms for the express industry. Enterprises in the fields of express delivery and e-commerce will speed up the layout.
