Geely Automotive Group selected Quanergy Systems, Inc. as a LiDAR partner. Geely and Quanergy will collaborate in developing and commercializing solutions for the broad deployment of smart city and autonomous vehicle systems.
This announcement follows an initial deployment of Quanergy’s lidar-based smart city solution at intersections across the Hangzhou Bay Area, Ningbo City, and Zhejiang Province. This is the first smart infrastructure and intelligent vehicle deployment in China sponsored by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development with 5G-V2X, autonomous driving vehicles, and vehicle-road cooperation techniques.
The roadside sensing system features Quanergy’s AI-powered 3D lidar traffic management platform. The platform integrates Quanergy’s M8 lidar sensor and QORTEX DTC software, which uses 3D perception algorithms to detect and track vehicles and pedestrians to increase the intelligence of infrastructure. Geely’s intelligent vehicles receive details on roadside objects through 5G wireless communication networks that increase sensing performance, minimize blind zones, and maximize safety.
Quanergy and Geely’s collaboration projects in smart city and autonomous vehicles will be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the Quanergy booth (#9329) in Las Vegas 7-10 January 2020. A car from Lotus, which is part of the Geely Group, will be equipped with Quanergy’s S3 sensors, displaying real-time perception of the show floor.
