GAC Group: Will cooperate with Huawei to jointly develop L4 self-driving cars, mass production in 2024

On April 12, GAC Group announced at the 2021 GAC Technology Day press conference that it will cooperate with Huawei to develop L4-level autonomous vehicles, which are planned to be mass-produced in 2024.

In December 2020, Huawei officially released the 96-line medium and long-range lidar products it designed and developed. Huawei’s lidar has a wide range of application scenarios, including long-distance small obstacles, short-range blocking, near-end protrusions, tunnels, left turns at intersections, and basements during actual driving, and it also has high-speed vehicle detection. ability. In addition, Wang Jun, president of Huawei Smart Car Solutions BU, revealed that Huawei plans to reduce the cost of lidar to $200 or even $100 in the future.
