At the Baidu World 2018, a yearly event hosted by the internet giant on November 1, Baidu unveiled both its AI technology applications in the theme of “Yes, AI DO“ and its innovative products. Among which, Baidu revealed the autonomous vehicle Touring jointly developed with JMC (Jiangling Motors Co., Ltd.).
At the mention of self-driving, Google and Baidu come to our mind first. And Forbes pointed out that, quoting from market analysis, “Baidu might finally have the biggest say in world autonomous driving vehicles market, thanks to its advanced algorithm, sound relations with business partners and strong support from government.” Baidu has initiated its autonomous driving growth route from strategic planning in 2013 to Apollo being unveiled in April, 2017. The rumored three pillar players BAT model didn’t happen, instead, Baidu, the first company that started driverless technology R&D in China, standing out from its peers, grew rapidly to the frontrunner in autopilot.
JMC works with Baidu at such a deep level, symbolizing that JMC is at the forefront in autopilot home and abroad.
Based on the technology framework offered by Baidu Apollo autopilot platform, and JMC-Ford strict management system as well as rich experience in mass production, JMC team has re-designed the chassis drive-by-wire, electrical architecture, in-vehicle sensors and decision algorithm to meet the requirements of intelligent driving and has successfully developed the Level 4 autonomous vehicle Touring that suits several scenarios including logistic distribution and industrial parks shuttles. This Level 4 autonomous vehicle Touring will provide service on trial basis inside JMC plant by the end of this year and be applied to public areas gradually.
Possessing 30 years’ experience in LCBV manufacturing, JMC masters the international level LCBV manufacturing craftsmanship and world-class production lines. As a European-style multifunctional commercial vehicle with super high value and accessibility, Touring has earned a number of awards including 2017 Chinese Recommended Vehicle for Logistics and 2017 Most Valuable Self-owned LCBV Brand, and has been a sales miracle creator: “for each 15 minutes, a Touring has been sold’.
Looking in the past, JMC Autonomous Shuttle Bus, based on Baidu Apollo, has been put into operation. Looking ahead, JMC will work with Baidu to a deepened level, bringing more autonomous vehicles to mass production and operation. JMC is running on the way towards its end, “to be the best partner for mobility and smart logistics solutions”.
