Finance and economics news (reporter Lu Yifu) on August 22, the third global smart car frontier summit was held in Guangzhou. Mo Luyi, general manager of Xiaoma Zhixing (Guangzhou) and head of Guangzhou R & D center, delivered a keynote speech. She said that the ultimate goal of the pony smart line is to create a “virtual driver”, which can drive different models and can be deployed on different vehicle platforms. Through continuous learning, continuous accumulation of scene data, data feedback, and AI improvement technology, the virtual driver can finally drive any kind of car and road. ” According to Mo, the company has more than 100 self driving vehicles in China and the United States, and the company has carried out robotaxi road tests in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Irvine and Fremont, California.
said that before the end of 2017, it was officially settled in Nansha, Guangzhou. At that time, the automatic driving system of Xiao Ma Zhi line had a general ability to deal with rainy days and blooms. The reason was that the company had only conducted road tests in California, and lacked data on rainy days and water spray. “But after we came to Guangzhou, during the first 500 days of operation, we experienced 209 rainy days, and often heavy rain or thunderstorms, which made the automatic driving system of Xiao Ma Zhi received a lot of rain and splash data in the continuous road test, and constantly improved the autopilot system. < p > < p > in an interview with media including Beijing News reporter, Mo Luyi thought that although the team of Xiaoma Zhixing has been running in Nansha for more than 500 days, it is still in the state of trial operation and has not been fully open to the outside world. Therefore, the company obtains real data through real test, and pays more attention to the value of road test for the company’s technical improvement, and is not in a hurry to ask for it Promote the operation outward. < p > < p > for the current competition pattern of domestic automatic driving enterprises, Mo Luyi thinks that the automatic driving technology is still in the stage of rapid development, and it is too early to discuss the competition problem. She said that at present, the autonomous driving industry still needs to solve the problem of unmanned and large-scale. “Assuming that any auto driving enterprise solves a difficulty or problem in the industry, it is a milestone breakthrough in the whole industry. Only when the whole automatic driving industry keeps pushing forward the technology can we really discuss the large-scale commercial landing and then discuss the so-called competition. ” < p > < p > since last year, many domestic AI enterprises have been listed in the “entity list” by the US government. It is expected that there is a risk of decoupling between China and the United States. Zhang Haizhou, director of marketing and public relations of Xiaoma Zhixing, told the Beijing news that many companies, including Xiaoma Zhixing, have plans to deal with this risk. Peng Jun, the company’s founder, said earlier that the company is enriching the overall industrial chain and some key parts are also doing some localization substitution.
