Geely aiming for Level 4 autonomous driving by 2022
Geely Auto Group laid down its vision for the future of autonomous drive at the Dragon Bay Forum event held Friday in Hangzhou, China. The annual event brought together leaders from government institutions, as well as information technology, telecommunications and automotive industries to share ideas on the continual introduction of autonomous driving technologies.
In the first four months of 2019, Geely Auto has sold over 450,000 vehicles equipped with Level 2 technologies, placing it as market leader in the segment.
As the chief partner to the 2022 Asian Games, Geely Auto has committed to developing autonomous drive solutions that can be used during the games under the slogan “Enjoy Mobility @ the Asian Games with Geely”.
By 2022, Geely Auto will have developed a fully Level 4 autonomous system that utilizes 5G communications, edge computing and V2X infrastructure technologies to create a driverless environment capable of taking athletes and guests around the event sites.
As a follow on commercially available products, Geely will develop an Automated Valet Parking System which will allow cars to self-park and be able to be summoned to a location on demand.
