Yutong Bus: Technological innovation to help the development of smart transportation
With the rapid development of 5G, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things technologies, smart cars are changing people's travel life, and autonomous driving technology has become a very important part of the development of automotive intelligence.
Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Co., Ltd. (referred to as "Yutong Bus") continues to make efforts in the field of smart transportation, and has embarked on a road of innovation, upgrading and advanced development.
Realize the commercial operation of autonomous driving
Public transportation vehicles have fixed routes, priority to the right of way, and comprehensive maintenance systems. They have the inherent advantages of automated driving commercial operation. As one of the representatives of China's bus manufacturing, Yutong Bus is committed to promoting the commercial operation of autonomous driving, so that products can truly move from the laboratory to the end market, and benefit the public. It has been 5 years for Yutong Bus to commercialize autonomous driving.
Starting in 2015, the first-generation Yutong self-driving bus has been publicly tested in Zhengzhou. In 2019, the L4 self-driving bus "Xiaoyu" was put into trial operation on Zhengzhou Open Road. In the past five years, Yutong Bus has completed its role as an "autonomous driving solution operator". On June 20, 2020, the intelligent bus line of Yutong Bus's commercial and normal operation started in Zhengzhou, with a total length of 17.4 kilometers and a maximum passenger capacity of more than 80 people (including standing). The first batch of 12 Yutong L3 level autonomous driving buses U12 and 2 L4 level autonomous driving buses "Xiaoyu" have travelled 60,000 kilometers. Through intelligent networked autonomous driving technology, the whole journey time of the vehicle is shorter.
On September 13, 2020, the 5G autonomous driving network-hailing bus demonstration zone project in Zhengzhou High-tech Zone was launched. In the future, "Xiaoyu 2.0" with L4 "smart brain" will be put into operation, and reservations can be made through mobile phones, platforms and other channels. 7×24 hours of all-weather service, efficient and convenient.
Become a smart travel solution operator
Yutong Bus’s insight into autonomous driving does not stop at the level of commercial operation. It has already begun to build smart travel scenarios. It outlines the beauty through autonomous driving products, smart bus platforms, unmanned smart bus stations, and vehicle-road collaborative signal priority systems. The future of transportation.
At the demonstration site of the 5G smart public transport project in Zhengdong New District, the smart travel solution has been implemented. Through the vehicle-road collaborative signal priority system, the waiting time of the signal lamp has been shortened from 17 seconds to 2 seconds. At the same time, the blind spot warning system can be used to detect the blind spot in advance. Vehicles and pedestrians make driving decisions automatically, while at unmanned bus stations, vehicles can be parked and charged automatically.
On September 8, 2020, Yutong's smart mobility brand-WITGO was released; in October, Yutong's smart development once again increased, and its "Smart Mobility Overall Solution" and "Autonomous Driving Microcirculation Solution Version 2.0" were successively launched. The program integrates the four major sections of "transportation planning, program design, product delivery, and operation services", covering the entire process of public transportation, providing customers with intelligent, networked, and collaborative end-to-end services.
Continuous innovation to promote the development of smart transportation
After five years of advanced development, Yutong has realized the successful transformation of its identity as an "autonomous driving solution operator". Yutong Chairman Tang Yuxiang once said that Yutong's long-term stable and high-quality development comes from the company's continuous innovation. Only by doing things in a down-to-earth manner can an enterprise be long-term, and only by creating value for customers can it go faster and further.
In the future, Yutong Bus will continue to promote "intelligent networked vehicles, intelligent transportation, and smart city deep integration" as its mission, with smart behavior goals, and work together with industry partners to provide inexhaustible impetus for China's smart transportation development.
