On July 22, the 2022 iVISTA Intelligent Collected Vehicle Camping Festival & “Era of Intelligence Vehicles” Cross-industry Forum was held in the Mingyue Lake integrated innovation center in the Liangjiang New Area of Chongqing, spearheaded by Intelligent Connected Technology of CAERI Co., Ltd. On the scene, more than ten intelligent collected vehicles from Chang’an Automobile, Changan Deepal, Guangzhou Automobile’s Aion, BYD, XPeng, Voyah, Aito, WM Motor, Roewe, IM, and so on demonstrated reverse charging, automatic parking, voice interaction, infotainment, and other functions, drawing a picture of new intelligent vehicle scenarios.
In the cross-industry forum held simultaneously, delegates from government agencies, auto manufacturers, universities, and research institutes debated “the era of intelligent vehicles” and shared their respective opinions.
This activity is prep and warm-up for the imminent 2022 IVISTA Intelligent Collected Vehicle Challenge. It is an important professional competition for the Smart China Expo (SCE). Due to its professional competition system, strict rules, highly competitive system, and enjoyable traits, it has become the most influential professional intelligent collected vehicle competition in China and the world.
On behalf of the event organizer, Zhang Qiang, general manager at Intelligent Connected Technology of CAERI, announced relevant information about the 2022 IVISTA Intelligent Collected Vehicle Challenge on the scene. He said the event would not only add an extreme challenge to Chongqing but also make the competition much more competitive and enjoyable.
For example, the virtual simulation challenge will use data from real scenarios to simulate all scenarios typical of intelligent driving, including the most representative traffic accidents, edge limits, and continuous simulation tracks, to reflect the participating teams’ real driving skills.
This year’s extreme challenge in Chongqing deserves attention. It will be designed based on the city’s mountainous landscapes, involving many sharp turns and slopes adjacent to Mingyue Lake, Liangjiang New Area. Conquering this track, which is said to be the most difficult in China, will be a big challenge for intelligent connected vehicles.
In addition, this year’s functional unmanned vehicle challenge will set shipping and pickup scenarios in the 1.2 km race by imitating the unmanned delivery scenarios amid the pandemic to test the advancement and accuracy of unmanned driving perception, decision-making and control algorithms, the safety of vehicles during runtime, and the traffic efficiency in complex scenarios.
The 2022 IVISTA Intelligent Collected Vehicle Challenge, scheduled to begin on August 15, is much anticipated because of its newly added more competitive and exciting events. It’s reported that 11 auto manufacturers, including Chang’an Automobile, SAIC Group, and Geely, and 102 teams from Tsinghua University, Tongji University, Southwest University, and other universities have confirmed that they will participate in this year’s race.
Yang Fei, executive director of Mingyue Lake Collaborative Innovation Research Institute, delivered the keynote speech titled “Creating a Tropic R rainforest-like Innovation Ecosystem to Power Tech and Industry Innovation,” in which he introduced how Chongqing Liangjiang Collaborative Innovation Zone holds on to a combination of tech innovation and industry development to meet industry innovation demand, brings together global innovation resources, deepens collaboration, builds an innovation ecosystem involving all elements and the entire industrial chain and advances the integrated development of enterprises, universities and research institutes.
Auto manufacturers play a vital part in promoting the development of intelligent collected vehicles. Liu Zongcheng, assistant general manager at Seres Automobile Co., Ltd., made a speech titled Digital Transformation is a New Trend that Can Shape the Intelligent Vehicle Industry Competition. He pointed out that intelligent collected vehicles are becoming a new trend in the auto industry and will advance the reform of auto products, adding that digitalization will be a new trend that can shape the auto industry competition and facilitate industry transformation by promoting cross-industry integration.
Changan Automobile, which aims to transform into an intelligent low-carbon mobility tech company, is not only a pioneer in intelligent networking of automobiles but also a leader in the industry. At this forum, Liang Fenghua, Deputy General Manager of Changan Automobile Intelligent Vehicle R&D Center, shared the latest achievements of Changan Automobile in intelligent driving innovation in combination with the current situation and the future trend of the industry.
Changan Deepal, a new digital battery electric vehicle brand of Changan Automobile, has attracted a lot of attention from the industry since its launch. Changan Deepal SL03, its first mass-produced model, was a phenomenal model at this year’s Chongqing International Auto Exhibition. Guo Tong, General Manager of the Strategic Marketing Department of Chongqing Changan New Energy Vehicle Co. Ltd., gave a speech titled “Digital Technology Reconstructs Mobility Imagination” to share the successful experience of making driving Changan Deepal SL03, an intelligent and pure-electric model, a fun experience amid the trend of intelligentization and electrification.
What kind of user experience will “automobiles in the intelligent era” bring? What business opportunities are behind that? Will the booming camping economy boost intelligent connected vehicles? During the dialogue session, Chen Gang, a distinguished expert of the China Society of Automotive Engineers, Yang Yi, President of Chongqing Automobile Business Association and Chairman of Bescar, Li Yunwu, Vice Dean of the College of Engineering and Technology of Southwest University, and Yang Liangyi, Deputy Chief Engineer of Intelligent Connected Technology of China Automotive Engineering Research Institute Co., Ltd., responded to those most asked questions by sharing their views in user experience, consumption choice, technical pain points, scientific research, and other aspects. Their brilliant insights and excellent remarks brought bursts of applause from time to time.
As the guests shared their views, more than ten mainstream vehicle models demonstrated various intelligent functions in the camping scenario built outside the conference venue, and those functions include smart voice navigation, remote control of air conditioning via apps, parking via one click on the smartphone, reverse charging, in-vehicle karaoke, and in-vehicle video games. Those latest and exciting functions for camping scenarios enrich the user experience and make people look forward to driving an automobile in the intelligent era!
