World-first Level 4 fully autonomous vehicle parking system rolled-out on Human Horizons' HiPhi X
SHANGHAI, Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Human Horizons, a leading Chinese smart mobility and autonomous driving 
research company, announced the rollout of its world-first Level 4 Autonomous 
Valet Parking (AVP) system on the HiPhi X production vehicle. The launch comes 
after successful development and testing at the Shanghai research center and 
marks a milestone in advanced autonomous driving technology research.

Human Horizons Founder and CEO, Ding Lei noted, "Human Horizons leverages 
technology to enhance the driving experience and efficiency while prioritizing 
user safety for our projects. With this in mind, we seek to promote autonomous 
driving and launch V2X technology ready for mass-market application."

The newly developed AVP delivers an advanced Level 4 autonomous driving 
experience based on the integration of vehicle and road-integrated 
technologies. Fixed sensory equipment such as lasers, radar and communications 
devices in parking areas can identify and track vehicle and obstacle positions, 
send this information via 5G to the vehicle and guide it to a safe parking 
space. Drivers will be able to exit their car anywhere in the parking area and 
leave the car to park itself autonomously. Upon returning, drivers will be able 
to summon the vehicle to their current location using a mobile app and drive 
away. 

The integrated system of AVP can overcome the challenges autonomous vehicles 
face at underground parking lots with no GPS signal, blind spots and tight 
turning circles. This makes HiPhi X the industry leader in this area. 

Equipped with this technology, the HiPhi X will debut at the 2020 Beijing Auto 
Show, becoming the world's first mass-produced smart electric vehicle to 
achieve Level 4 fully autonomous parking. 

Aside from the AVP system, the newly-launched autopilot system of HiPhi X also 
puts user safety at the forefront of development. The system employs the same 
principles as aircraft safety design, using a dual-redundancy system meaning 
backup components ensure the reliability of the system even in the case of 
single-component malfunction. This system can start, stop, turn and drive the 
vehicle within a 0-130km/h speed range. This allows drivers to take their foot, 
hands, eyes and attention away from the road and is achieved by 24 sensors 
placed throughout the car (including smart front view and surround-view 
cameras, millimeter-wave radar, ultrasonic radar, driver status detection DMS 
cameras and more). This together with high-precision mapping technology allows 
HiPhi X to achieve Level 4 autonomous parking making it the first production 
model to achieve this in China.

In 2019, as part of its strategic blueprint of the Smart Vehicle, Smart Road 
and Smart City ecosystem, Human Horizons established the world's first 
smart-road capable of V2X driving in Yancheng, Jiangsu province. The team also 
launched a 5G vehicle-road-city integration demonstration project in Shanghai's 
Zhangjiang Artificial Intelligence Park. With the launch of AVP and its 
application on parking lots and highways, Human Horizons' vision of connected, 
autonomous and smart mobility is one step closer.
