Cao Cao and DeepRoute Form Autonomous Driving Partnership
August 20, 2020
DeepRoute's new Level 4 self-driving system will be used in Cao Cao's autonomous robo-taxis service at Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.
DeepRoute, an international self-driving vehicle technology provider, and Cao Cao Mobility, a strategically invested business of Geely Technology Group, announced the companies' partnership to advance the design, development, and commercialization of Cao Cao's autonomous robo-taxis service. The autonomous vehicles, powered by DeepRoute's self-driving technology solution, will be deployed at the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
Cao Cao will integrate DeepRoute's new full-stack self-driving system, including its second-generation sensing system, DeepRoute-Sense II, into its dedicated fleet of Geometry A fully electric vehicles at the multisport event. The autonomous robo-taxis represent a new milestone in Cao Cao vision to usher in a fully autonomous future where transportation is safer and more efficient. Asian Games athletes and guests will be able to use the Cao Cao app to seamlessly hail these vehicles to get around the event sites.
According to the companies, DeepRoute's new, second generation sensing system, DeepRoute-Sense II, will transform Cao Cao’s fleet of electric vehicles into robo-taxis with advanced self-driving capabilities. DeepRoute's system provides vehicles with the components needed for self-driving technology - including sensing, HD mapping, perception, planning and control, simulation system, and cloud technology.
The slim, water-resistant roof-box design for DeepRoute-Sense houses seven DeepRoute-Vision vehicle cameras, three LiDAR sensors, a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) with two GPS antennas, and other advanced sensors. The system also integrates a telecommunication and data synchronization controller to accurately synchronize data from the different sensors in real time. With built-in 5G support, DeepRoute-Sense gives companies the ability to remotely control vehicles so operators can take over a vehicle's driving system if needed.
