“Unicorn” Pony Zhixing runs in Shenzhen, and autopilot road test starts

The Southern+ reporter was informed that following the announcement in November that its fifth R&D center, Shenzhen R&D Center, was established in the Shenzhen Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone, Xiaoma Zhixing was awarded the Shenzhen Intelligent Connected Car Road on December 8. Test license. After obtaining the license, the Pony Smart Auto-driving fleet immediately started road testing and technical verification on public roads in Shenzhen. This is the first key progress made by Xiaoma Zhixing Shenzhen R&D Center.

The public road test is the beginning of Pony Smart’s deployment in Shenzhen. The company will continue to promote the development and testing of autonomous driving on a large scale to pave the way for the exploration of autonomous driving mobility services (Robotaxi), logistics services and other technologies.

The reporter learned from Xiao Ma Zhi Xing that with the addition of Shenzhen, Xiao Ma Zhi Xing, which was established at the end of 2016, is currently launching large-scale autonomous driving tests or service operations in seven cities in China and the United States. Companies that have landed autonomous driving tests.

According to the requirements, autonomous vehicles must pass strict and standardized automatic driving function tests before being approved for testing, including 13 items including traffic sign and marking line recognition and response, signal light recognition response, overtaking, and stopping over, a total of 33 scenarios; Complete vehicle tests of no less than 1,000 kilometers on closed roads and venues. In the end, it was reviewed by experts and approved by the joint working group, and Xiaoma Zhixing successfully obtained the Shenzhen Intelligent Connected Vehicle Road Test Notice.

Quickly obtain policy permits and carry out road tests in a short period of time, and put forward higher requirements on the capabilities of autonomous driving companies in technology research and development and process management. For example, autonomous driving systems and algorithm model vehicles need to be able to quickly adapt to the scene challenges brought by the new city, with sufficient stability and generalization capabilities; at the same time, the company needs to quickly start the test plan in the new operational design domain (ODD) to get through The positive cycle from testing to research and development.

Since 2017, Xiaoma Zhixing has accumulated rich experience in road test mileage and software and hardware research and development in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and California. Especially in dealing with high temperature, heavy rain, morning and evening peaks, and differentiated traffic habits, Xiaoma Zhixing can quickly copy experience to new cities, and at the same time create a new environment for cross-validation of past technologies.

At present, Xiaoma Zhixing can handle scenes such as left-turn waiting areas, urban expressways, tunnels, narrow roads, and large trucks in Shenzhen, continuously collecting research and development data, and promoting technological upgrades.

According to reports, as of February 2021, Xiaoma Zhixing has raised a total of more than 1.1 billion U.S. dollars and is valued at more than 5.3 billion U.S. dollars. It is one of the most valuable autonomous driving companies in the world. Xiaoma Zhixing is continuing to strengthen the company’s ability to provide autonomous driving technologies and services on a global scale, and actively explore cross-city intelligent networked vehicle road test systems and technologies, and promote the realization of regional coordinated development of the autonomous driving industry.
