Some time ago, Baidu unmanned vehicle traveling was conducted in the fifth ring road in Beijing, causing a great deal of attention. Putting aside the debate on violation of traffic laws and regulations, on the other hand, a high degree of intelligent automotive era is coming. Based on the intelligent driving of cars, satellite positioning navigation, road photoelectric identification, etc. are achieving complex road safety automatic driving, and with the help of Internet of things, cloud computing, big data and other technologies, people-car dialogue, car office, leisure and entertainment can be achieved.
In the International Forum on Development of China’s Automotive Industry (TEDA) 2017, which was held last weekend, the SmartNet Car has also become a highlighted issue. "Smart cars in China will also be legislated" – this has become the strongest svoice.
It is certain that smart cars will be legislated in China.
Xu Heyi, Party Secretary and Chairman of Beijing Automobile Group Co., Ltd., held that in the era of intelligence, competition between car companies is shifted from prices as a single product to the intelligent ecosystem. It is very difficult for traditional car manufacturers to become versatile players, so to get first-mover advantage, we must open arms, and actively cooperate with scientific research institutes, industry associations and government departments for extensive and in-depth cooperation and collaborative innovation, which is the decoder for traditional car manufacturers to achieve docking with advanced technology and the new market. "Beiqi Group and the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and other institutions such as Millet, HKUST, iFLYTEK，Baidu and other Internet companies are to establish a cooperative relationship, and to actively promote the demarcation of innovation and integration of innovation.
According to Li Deyi, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and chairman of China Artificial Intelligence Association, almost all of the current vehicles driving on roads are in the Level 2, which should be controlled by people, including Tesla. Automatic driving is self-driving of vehicles, and the vehicles need to get driver's license instead of people, to break the autopilot ceiling of artificial intelligence.
Jiang Jingfang, vice president of China's driver assistance system of Bosch Chassis Control System, said that automation, electrification, interconnection, coupled with multiple models, such as shared cars, make the originally independent models to evolve into an ecological chain of the intelligent network. "For the intelligent trend, if in the past, Germany defined the modern cars and then in the future cars will be jointly defined by China."
Dai Juan, Deputy General Manager of the strategic department of Shanghai Automotive Group Co., Ltd., also looks forward to the smart car industry. She holds that in terms of the currently released various enterprises industry planning, 2020 will become a business year for unmanned cars. She said, "Netcom 2020 coverage is expected to be greatly improved, and by 2025 independent brand cars will be basically completed while the network functions are fully covered."
Reporters noted that the general trend of smart cars has been recognized, but with the development of the industry, testing and practical laws and regulations are introduced, and the industry is also concerned about.
Wu Wei, director of the Division of Industrial Coordination of the National Development and Reform Commission, said that according to the needs of rapid development of smart automotive industry, NDRC is organizing the drafting of national smart car innovation and development strategy to be China's smart car industry, to develop legislation in the automotive sector. "Legislation will standardize the division of public road tests and drivers' responsibilities, speed up our own standard system in terms of intelligent transport facilities, and establish mandatory standards for the aspects that affect vehicle safety and information security."
Wu Zhixin, deputy director of China Automotive Technology Research Center, referred to a data as reference: 90% of the car accidents is not to blame cars but the driver is to be blamed, among which 90% of the accidents is due to the driver's violation. "I think after the smart cars study the rules, it will seriously abide by the traffic regulation to drive, thereby traffic accidents can be reduced on large-scale."
Smart car industry in Binhai New area has promising prospects.
In fact, smart cars are interconnected by multiple intelligent devices, that is, in addition to vehicle manufacturing, artificial intelligence control system and smart rearview mirrors are both used in the smart car industrial chain.
The experts in the industry believe that the smart car industry in Binhai New Area has promising prospects. “Firstly, Binhai New Area has advantages in industrial chain. Secondly, 'smart manufacturing' is becoming a symbol of Binhai New Area, and it has now formed TEDA, Binahi High-tech Zone, Harbor Economic Zone and a number of specialized intelligent manufacturing industrial clusters. "Binhai New Area has the advantages of the whole industrial chain. Thirdly, Binhai New Area has the advantage of big data at the bottom, for example the National Super Computing Center, etc. These are the industrial base for the development of smart cars.”(By Wang Ning)
