In the parade only autonomous vehicles! 55 autonomous cars converged in unisonJanuary 16, 2019
The largest parade of UAVs hit the Guinness Book of Records. Guess where and by whom this record was set?
A total of 55 UAVs built by Changan set a record for the largest parade of autonomous vehicles at the test site in Dianjiang (China). It happened on November 28, 2018, but the video from the event, after following all the necessary procedures, was published only recently.
A column of red Changan cars covered the planned section of 3.2 km in 9 minutes 7 seconds. In each car, the driver was present, as is required by law, but he did not have access to the autonomous control system at all, so the organizers had to spend some time to “build their confidence in the autopilot system” so that they agreed to participate in setting the record. This was told by Yang Guo, an autonomous technology engineer at Changan Automobile. He noted that it was especially important at the preparatory stage to identify in advance certain risk factors. For example, the movement of the organizers of the event or the placement of photo and video equipment. Engineers identified these risks in advance and took appropriate measures.
Changan emphasizes that artificial intelligence is a very important trend in the development of the automotive industry. Having established this record, the company is going to put further efforts in the development of autonomous technologies in the future.
