No driver Car 2020 China Smart Car Future Challenge begins
The 2020 China Intelligent Vehicle Future Challenge sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China opened in Changshu, Jiangsu Province yesterday. The competition attracted 22 teams from all over the country to sign up for the competition, most of which came from domestic universities.
At 8:30, all the participating vehicles were in place and ready to drive into the track.
CCTV reporter Erjia: Everyone should pay attention to the fact that there is no driver in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, so this competition examines the practical application of artificial intelligence and other related technologies in the automotive field.
The rules of this competition are different from previous competitions. All participating vehicles will simulate picking up and dropping off passengers in a real urban transportation environment. After entering the track, the vehicle needs to drive at a speed of less than 40 kilometers per hour to complete the simulation pickup and drop-off task from point A to point B, and finally take the number of pick-offs completed by the participating vehicles in 90 minutes as the basis for scoring.
Wang Feiyue, director of the National Key Laboratory of Automation Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences: This is a test of the application of Beidou-based Internet of Things technology to unmanned vehicles, and it is directly tested to the “last kilometer”, that is, the test of service level.
The “China Smart Car Future Challenge” has been held once a year since 2009.
