Geely Xing Yue L SUV Equipped With 1km 5G-AVP System
This is a revolutionary self-parking system that will arrive first in the Xing Yue L.
A few weeks ago, Geely Auto on March 18, 2021 quietly released information that its soon to be launched Xing Yue ‘L’ SUV will be the first Geely Auto model to be equipped with a ground breaking feature called ‘1km 5G-AVP’ which is an ‘Automated Valet Parking’ software system that allows the driver of the Xing Yue ‘L’ SUV to have his vehicle park itself in a car-park (with the assumption there is an available space) and there is no other vehicle parked ‘badly’ on either side of the available lot.
Powered by the latest software technology from the ‘drone’ segment, the Xing Yue SUV can perform Level 4 autonomous driving features in specific scenarios, said Geely Auto. Based on 5G technology, the 5G-AVP 1km will enable real-time communications of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything), V to Cloud and V to Mobile, allowing vehicles to automatically search parking spots, confirm the location of users and pick up car owners.
The company said the 5G-AVP 1km system is armed with the super domain controller from Texas Instruments. It is available for online computing of dynamic and static obstacles, like roads, pedestrians, road markings and roadblocks by virtue of a super sensing system composed of 24 sensors and the high-/low-speed fusion algorithm for GPS. Specifically, the sensors include 12 ultrasonic radars, 5 millimeter-wave radars and 7 high-definition cameras.
The Xing Yue L will be Geely’s third CMA-based model and its first internal combustion engine vehicle that partially achieves Level 4 in intelligence and safety performance.
Moreover, the vehicle is applicable to FOTA (firmware over-the-air) for whole functional domains.
The Xing Yue L SUV is sized at 4770mm long, 1895 mm wide and its height is 1689 mm with a wheelbase of 2845 mm.
In terms of its interior, its overall design is simple and atmospheric, with ‘three screens’ that traverse the entire center console. The integrated design of the center control screen and the co-pilot entertainment screen, plus a full LCD instrument panel and multi-function steering wheel, presents full array of technology which is what the new generation of vehicle buyers want. Then after they take ownership and there is a software or technical glitch, they will be fast in complaining non-stop on social media.
We still believe that too much technology in a moving vehicle is not a good idea for so many reasons including, remote vehicle high-jacking and remote driver kidnapping.
