The building of the aforesaid ICV project phase Ⅱ will be conducted in two years and will be supported by Jilin provincial government, Changchun municipal government, and local authority of Changchun Automobile Economic and Technological Development Zone. The facility will embrace main downtown areas in Changchun and cover multiple scenarios including closed and semi-closed industrial parks, city roads, expressways, and airports.
FAW Group said it plans to deploy around 100 ICVs in the yet-to-be-completed pilot zone to technically boost the human-machine cooperative driving mode and explore commercial mix-flowed operation models.
Currently, the constructor is soliciting bids for engineering design projects about 52.7-km smart roads, 20 Hongqi E-HS9s with Level 4 intelligent features, a self-driving operation center, a data center, and a factory dedicated to scenarios research.
For the first phase of the Changchun-based ICV pilot project, FAW Group has constructed 10.5-km smart roads, deployed 4 Hongqi E-HS3 Level 4 intelligent cars, built a cloud-based autonomous driving platform, and started pilot operation of smart mobility services. As of now, the ICVs deployed there have run for nearly 30,000 kilometers.
