2020 is a year of great leap forward development of driverless industry, and start-ups are springing up one after another. It is expected that by 2021, unmanned vehicles will enter the market, and a new stage will be opened. The world economic forum estimates that the digital transformation of the automobile industry will create a value of US $67 billion and bring us $3.1 trillion in social benefits, including the improvement of unmanned vehicles, passenger connectivity and the improvement of the entire transportation industry ecosystem.
It is estimated that semi-automatic driving and fully automatic driving will have considerable market potential in the coming decades. For example, by 2035, there will be about 8 million 600 thousand autopilot cars in China alone, of which about 3 million 400 thousand will be fully automatic and 5 million 200 thousand will be semi-automatic.
“The annual revenue of car sales, buses, taxis and related transportation services in China is expected to exceed US $1.5 trillion,” according to some industry authorities BCG predicts that “it will take 15-20 years for the global market share of unmanned vehicles to reach 25%.” As the unmanned vehicle is expected to go on the market only in 2021, it means that the unmanned vehicle will occupy 25% of the global market share in 2035-2040.
The reason why driverless vehicles bring such great changes to the automobile industry is that the impact of driverless vehicles is unprecedented. Research shows that driverless driving will bring about disruptive improvement in the fields of enhancing highway safety, easing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution.
In today ‘s artificial intelligence AI field, driverless is a focus of attention. All countries regard driverless as the commanding point of future AI technology and attach importance to it from the perspective of national strategy. Overseas Google, domestic Huawei, bat and other giants all regard the priority of “car building” as the key direction of the company’s development. The traditional automobile manufacturers also actively seek to cooperate with the top enterprises in the field of artificial intelligence in order to achieve the breakthrough of unmanned vehicle technology as soon as possible. At present, vision companies such as WIMI Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ:WIMI), SenseTime and MEGVII, which have significant applications in the field of face recognition and AR holography in China, have made great efforts in the field of driverless, in order to build an industrial chain in the field of AI driverless.
On September 9, baidu Apollo officially launched ace traffic engine, in which a refers to automatic driving, C refers to vehicle road coordination, and E is efficient travel. At present, the engine has been implemented in more than ten cities, including Beijing, Changsha, Baoding, etc. Baidu Apollo released a white paper on the same day. It is expected that by 2025, Che Lu Zhixing will complete the digital upgrade, highly autonomous vehicles will realize regional market application, and new traffic information infrastructure will cover major cities and typical scenes in China.
According to the analysis, in February this year, 11 national ministries and commissions jointly issued the “on printing and distributing the innovation and development strategy of intelligent vehicles”, which exceeded the market expectation and directly promoted the formation of intelligent driving and vehicle road synergy v2x plate. At present, on the basis of 5g infrastructure construction, automobile electronics popularization and rapid development of electric vehicles, the Internet of vehicles market has become a definite opportunity, and the whole industry chain is expected to fully benefit.
As the leading enterprise of AI holography vision in China, WIMI Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ:WIMI) has created the third generation of 6D optical field holography technology products, with a simulation degree of more than 98%. The user experience can be described as amazing. With more than 4325 holographic content IP reserves, the technology is becoming more and more mature. Its business application scenarios are mainly concentrated in five professional fields, such as home entertainment, light theater, performance system, commercial publishing system and advertising display system. It is reported that WIMI Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ:WIMI) has comprehensive independent research and development and independent innovation capabilities, including multiple obstacle recognition capabilities based on artificial intelligence technology; fully self-developed city level high-definition map and high-precision positioning capabilities of unmanned vehicles; storage, transmission and processing capabilities of city level map and driving big data; unique multi-sensor fusion solutions; self built large-scale simulation system; innovation and integration ability of onboard software and hardware; emergency safety system (for example, when the radar encounters power failure, the vehicle can stop safely), etc.
Holographic AR industry is technology intensive. Holographic AR experience can only be realized through the combination of hardware and software technology, and the technological progress related to holographic AR will bring the holographic AR experience to the next stage. For example, the breakthrough of deep learning AI technology will enable holographic AR devices to integrate content captured by cameras and simulated by computers in a more seamless way, thus providing users with a more immersive experience. In addition, the development of integrated chip will make the image processor be produced at a lower cost, thus reducing the sales price of holographic AR devices. The widespread adoption of 5g network will make it possible to transmit real-time data between local devices and the Internet, thus greatly enhancing the diversity of content.
At the same time, even though unicorns are deeply involved in the field of face recognition, on the one hand, they still face the strong enemies of domestic and foreign Internet giants such as Facebook, Google, Tencent, and on the other hand, they will also face the ever-changing challenges and subversion of artificial intelligence technology.
In recent years, Google has made great efforts to develop AI. In the future strategic blueprint, waymo plays an important role. Google has also been providing money, technology and talent supply and support for waymo. Even in these years, waymo has not earned a penny.
In addition to providing AI technology and talents, Google’s financial support is also key. In 2018, waymo tested 600 vehicles on the road, with a total mileage of 16.09 million kilometers.
The mileage tested by many vehicles provides a lot of data for deep learning network. In addition to training AI to make basic judgments (red stop, green line), it can also judge many special scenes. (for example, a dog that suddenly rushes into the road, such as a policeman who directs the traffic).
Face recognition is a biometric technology based on human facial feature information. Using the camera or camera to collect the image or video containing the face, automatically detect the image information and track the face, and carry out a series of related analysis technologies for the detected face.
Compared with other countries and regions, China’s acceptance of unmanned driving is very high, so after large-scale commercialization, the promotion of unmanned driving will be more rapid. On the other hand, in China, most of the regulatory norms of unmanned vehicles are formulated at the national level, and its top-down approach can also simplify regulatory rules and procedures. This is also a big advantage that driverless driving will get the leading development in China.
We can predict a near future, when all the cars are driverless, we will usher in a safer, cleaner and environmentally friendly world. Thanks to driverless technology, our vehicles, roads and even the world in the future will become safer and more efficient, greatly reducing the consumption of petroleum fuel and reducing environmental pollution.
Of course, due to the effective sharing and distribution of resources by driverless public transport, the whole city’s transportation system only needs a small number of cars to operate normally. On the one hand, the efficiency of energy use will be greatly improved, on the other hand, new energy will be replaced on a large scale, so the air pollution caused by traditional fossil fuels will be reduced on a large scale. We are eagerly looking forward to the arrival of unmanned driving.
