Looking for new productive forces around you | "Beijing Gravity" Gathering Autonomous Driver Leading Enterprises into Beijing

In 2020, the global autonomous driving encountered the first cold winter. Earlier, the autonomous driving company that sprung up after the rain continued to be questioned: Can the highly anticipated AI technology be truly industrialized?When did the R & D investment of “burning money” see the dawn of commercialization?How can driverless cars break the existing regulations and restrict the streets on the street?
In this year, Beijing quietly opened an innovation in Yizhuang: Building the world’s first road cloud integrated high -level autonomous driving demonstration area.As the territory of the demonstration area gradually becomes larger, it has become a real world trial site for global autonomous driving companies. Continuous policy innovation and scenes have attracted nearly half of leading companies in this field.Innovative ecosystem of intelligent connected automobile industry, dominated by enterprises.

Policy “new” attracts enterprises to gather


At the end of 2021, Wenyuan, a autonomous driving company that grew up in Guangzhou, entered Beijing.Rowling, the vice president of the north, is “stressful.” The most important task of this trip is to let her driverless taxi drive on the streets of Beijing as soon as possible.
“Compared to the closed test field and fixed test road, the real world is ever -changing. Everyone, each road, and each signal light can help the algorithm become smarter.” Previously, several autonomous driving companies have opened no one in Beijing in advance in Beijing.Testing and commercialization pilots are the first time in the country.
“The first time in the country” is the most attractive.Unmanned and commercialized are the key nodes of the “second half” of autonomous driving.However, both of them have faced policies. In order to encourage industrial development, the city relies on the demonstration zone to set up the country’s first intelligent connected car policy pioneer in Yizhuang. It has released more than ten representative management policies, most of which are the first in the country.Here has become a policy high place for autonomous driving.
“It’s too late to not come to Beijing!” Rowling knew that the iteration of autonomous driving technology was upgraded quickly. If she did not enter unmanned and commercialized as soon as possible, she would take a step slowly in subsequent industrialization.However, Beijing’s unmanned and commercial policies need to accumulate a certain test mileage. Can this company that has just entered Beijing caught up?
This is also what Rowling is worried.However, the newly launched “Miles for Miles for Testing” innovation in the demonstration area dispels her concerns. The mileage accumulated in other places can also be included in Beijing’s assessment scope for many years, thereby helping it to speed up each stage of unmanned testing.Two years later, Beijing realized the pilot of unmanned vehicle in the country for the first time. Wen Yuanzhi was one of the approved enterprises.
“Beijing Gravity” has increased more and more autonomous driving companies in the demonstration area.Up to now, the demonstration area has opened up a total of eight major scenarios, deploying more than 800 vehicles, and issuing road test notices for 29 test car companies, attracting more than 50 companies to develop in Beijing, and the mileage of autonomous driving tests exceeds 30 million kilometers.
Industrial strength of urban test field training


“Yao Ban”, this dwellery name is the abbreviation of the computer science experimental class of Tsinghua University, founded by Academician Yao Qizhi, a world -renowned computer scientist.The autonomous driving courses were set up under his guidance, which enlightened the first batch of talents in China’s autonomous driving industry.
Talent is the key to innovation.How can Beijing transform such a rich self -driving talent resources into industrial resources?
In the intersection of Hongda Road and Rongjing East Street, a driverless car came. The traffic light information has been passed on to the car through the cloud and road testing equipment in advance.Three years ago, the “China Plan”, which also came from Tsinghua University, was the first to land in the demonstration area to build a city -level engineering test platform in the demonstration area.
“The entire city is like a test field. It can continuously provide a test verification environment for new products and new technologies. It supports enterprises to carry out test verifications of road test equipment and systems, vehicle road cloud fusion algorithms, and autonomous driving simulation.The new model.Opportunities for application.
“Drive” from Beijing to the broad world


On the highway from Beijing to Shanghai, an autonomous truck is driving at a full -load cargo.Thousands of kilometers generally need to be equipped with two drivers, but thanks to autonomous driving assistance. This car requires only one person to achieve human -machine rotation driving.
The truck comes from Qianqin Technology, which was born in the demonstration area more than two years ago.”Autonomous trucks have traveled to more than 20 provinces in China from Beijing ”, and the five major city agglomerations have been launched.” The person in charge of Qianqian Technology has calculated a account. In the context of increasingly short labor, autonomous driving dry line logisticsIf a driver is reduced, it can reduce the labor cost of 750,000 yuan in five years and greatly reduce the cost pressure of courier freight.
On the same high -speed logistics line, the company has taken the lead in launching a test of “end -to -end smart driving model”.In the past, the autonomous driving system needs to experience four steps of perception, prediction, planning, and control. This process requires hundreds of thousands of lines of code to accurately “see” the information on the road; now, the entire R & D process only needs to enter the data into large models.Can be able to train the vehicle’s autonomous driving capacity.
Policy innovation and the opening of the scene to promote the iterative upgrades of technology have also helped companies that grow up in the Beijing Autonomous Driving Demonstration Zone. They “drive” Yizhuang and “drive” to the city, the whole country, and the world.
Since the beginning of this year, the Neolithic unmanned delivery vehicles delivered to the major industrial parks and subway stations have received a total of nearly 10,000 orders from many customers.Since getting Yizhuang’s first open road operation license in 2021, the unmanned delivery vehicle of Shinkishi has successively landed in more than 30 cities and regions in China and began to go overseas.
Such stories have been staged one after another, and the new industrial structure has emerged in Yizhuang: multiple scenarios such as unmanned taxis, unmanned distribution, unmanned sanitation and other scenarios in the field of autonomous driving, and the parts of the parts covering laser radar, millimeter wave radar, etc.Core parts, the automotive chip field covers core chips such as smart cockpits, autonomous driving, and MCUs, and the integrated intelligent connected automotive industry chain layout in the integrated field of automobile road cloud … Policies, scenes, and innovative “Beijing Gravity”It is helping to drive out of the laboratory with self -driving technology and enter the broad world.
