Baidu Apollo, an open-source self-governing automobile innovation platform, and WM Motor, a brand-new energy car producer, formally launched 2 brand-new automobiles on Tuesday, both of which are based upon the WM Motor W6 SUV.
One is a brand-new generation of the unmanned car Apollo Moon mass production design geared up with LiDAR (Apollo Moon WM Motor variation), and the other is a mass production design geared up with Baidu Apollo Navigation Pilot (ANP) assisted driving system and Apollo Valet Parking (AVP) self-governing parking system.
This likewise suggests that the cooperation in between Baidu and WM Motor has actually finished complete protection from AVP and ANP to entirely unmanned Apollo Moon designs.
According to Baidu, the Apollo Moon variation of the W6 and WM Motor W6 designs with ANP and AVP both embrace the “ANP-Robotaxi” architecture, which can accomplish information generation and sharing at the exact same time.
This variation of the W6 is the very first design geared up with Baidu ANP to go into mass production. The brand-new automobile has L2 self-governing driving abilities, while the ANP function is based upon Apollo L4 automated driving innovation, which guarantees manageable mass production expenses and likewise takes into consideration user travel experience.
Baidu has actually mentioned that in regards to hardware setup, the W6 with ANP and AVP design has 12 electronic cameras, 5 millimeter-wave radars and 12 ultrasonic radars, which can recognize higher-level pilot-assisted driving abilities such as smart avoidance, self-governing lane altering, driving through on- and off-ramps and access to service locations. The Apollo Moon variation of the W6, on the other hand, includes one customized LiDAR system and matching driverless redundancy to the ANP AVP variation, permitting totally driverless ability.
The Apollo Moon variation of the W6 embraces a variety of 46 security innovations and 59 travel service styles with complete sensing unit and computing system redundancy. Even if one system stops working, it can guarantee that the entire automobile still performs driving commands and brings travelers to a safe location.
At the very same time, for the Apollo Moon variation of the W6, all the sub-packaging procedures prior to the assembly line are individually finished by WM Motor, enabling the production procedure to be additional enhanced. Baidu likewise declared the robotaxi can accomplish an operating cycle of more than 5 years and can be taken into massive steady operations.
