Self-driving Cars Are Controlled By Autonomous Driving Robot Systems

Uber's unmanned vehicle just crashed into the pedestrian; Mercedes-Benz's cruising function is still under investigation. At a time when all parties are full of doubts about autonomous driving technology, China Automotive Research and Research announced that in order to solve the problem of actual road traffic for Chinese smart cars, China Automotive Research Institute added the standard for the 2015 C-NCAP (China New Car Evaluation Procedure). For active safety testing, there are two projects for vehicle avoidance rearing and collision pedestrians to test the reliability of vehicles with active safety systems.

As a preliminary roadshow for testing collisions, simulating six scenarios in a real traffic environment, China Automotive Research Corporation recently completed the active safety test of China's first public simulation of real traffic conditions.


A MG 6 coupe equipped with an ADAS system represents a higher level of participation in the automatic driving production of China. In the test, the MG 6 model was driven at a speed of 35 km/h and there was no driver on the cab. At this time, a machine-controlled simulated pedestrian crossing the road appeared. Before the vehicle was about to collide with pedestrians, the car ADAS played a role in avoiding accidents through emergency braking.

In this test, the vehicle under test was controlled by the autonomous driving robot system to avoid human factors interference. In addition, the test-assisted vehicle in this test adopted the world's most advanced GST trolley (guided soft target) imported from Europe for the first time. Trolley), which can accurately simulate changes in different angles and speeds.

China Automotive Research revealed that the design of the test system has been completed. From the performance of the first test vehicle, the reliability of the ADAS active safety is quite good. However, consumers should be clear that the active safety system is essentially different from unmanned driving. The daily control of the vehicle is mainly done by the driver. The auxiliary system avoids danger in case of accident, so the owner cannot reduce the safety awareness.

It is reported that the MG 6 model of this test is equipped with MG PLIOT intelligent active driving assistance system (ADAS), including ACC adaptive cruise, AEB automatic emergency braking, FCW front collision alarm, LDW lane departure warning, SAS speed assist control, IHC intelligent near-light control and other functions. The entire system, built by SAIC and Mobileye, will be used in more than 10 models of SAIC.

A number of international authorities have predicted that the future of global driverless cars will form a trillion or even tens of trillions of industrial scale. According to the Boston Consulting Group, global driverless car sales will reach 12 million in 2035, and more than a quarter of them will be sold in China.
