Human Horizons' Super Smart-SUV Set to Rollout First Half of 2021
YANCHENG, China, Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Leading Chinese smart mobility and autonomous driving research company, Human 
Horizons, announced that the first pre-production models of the HiPhi X super 
SUV have started to roll off the factory assembly line utilizing its AVP 
technology. HiPhi X was officially unveiled at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show as 
the world's first autonomous driving vehicle to utilize 5G enabled 
vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies. It combines cutting-edge technical 
innovation with premium class luxury. Deliveries of HiPhi X will commence in 
the first half of 2021.

One of the defining features of the HiPhi X is the inbuilt Level 4 Autonomous 
Valet Parking (AVP) technology which allows for smart-parking and summon in 
supported areas. During production, this technology proves very useful as 
finished vehicles are able to automatically drive themselves from the 
production line to designated delivery areas, allowing for completely unmanned 
transfer and pickup. This functionality revolutionizes traditional automotive 
manufacturing, leading to a safer, cleaner, and more efficient production line.

For manufacturing of the HiPhi X, Human Horizons has developed a dynamic body 
production line which provides both fully automated and flexible production. 
The body of the vehicle is put joined using adaptive spot welding, flow drill 
screws (FDS) and self-piercing rivets (SPR) as used in the aviation industry. 
These jointing technologies combined with world class adhesives and sealers 
ensure the steel and aluminum materials combine to achieve complete air and 
water tightness, as well as a more stable and durable body. The production 
process is fully automated and consumes significantly less energy.

In keeping with the environmentally friendly production ethos of the company, 
painting of the HiPhi X is also fully automated. The HiPhi X uses 
state-of-the-art automatic painting technology provided by German Dürr Group to 
coat all inner and outer surfaces using robots. This creates a finish that 
rivals other luxury cars such as Porsche. Within the unmanned spraying area, 
the factory also adopts circulating air, dry mist, rotary adsorption, 
regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO), and other world-class technologies to 
further reduce energy consumption and cut down on the emission of volatile 
organic compounds (VOC's). In doing so, the HiPhi X more than meets the 
requirements of even the most stringent of international standards to create a 
more environmentally friendly manufacturing facility.


As smart-retail continues to develop and pressure traditional business 
processes, Human Horizons has invested in a complete digital system linking 
together the entire organization's online and offline processes. This covers 
areas such as order placement, production scheduling, quality management, error 
prevention, equipment management and supply chain management. The system 
automatically relays information to relevant parties. This automatic 
coordination of information greatly accelerates internal process speed and 
reduces the risk of human error. 

The logistics processing of parts and vehicles has also been largely automated. 
Throughout the vehicle assembly process, automated guided vehicles (AGV) and 
ultra-quiet EMS transportation technology create a safer work environment. 
Large-scale use of the 360°AGV logistics distribution system, over-the-air 
(OTA) high-speed wireless technology, and remote vehicle activation allow for 
unmanned on-demand transportation of both parts and vehicles. 

Through a dedication to optimizing and automating the entire production and 
business process, Human Horizons is moving ever closer to realizing their goal 
of a mass-produced smart super-SUV, the HiPhi X.
