Geely announced that it plans to launch the first mass-produced 5G and C-V2X-enabled vehicles in 2021. The launch of the new vehicles will be done in collaboration with Gosuncn Group and Qualcomm Technologie who will assist Geely with 5G and C-V2X products based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform through Gosuncn.
Geely presented its four steps G-Pilot strategy for autonomous driving in 2018. Currently, its autonomous driving is at L2 and will now provide L3 services with 5G and C-V2X technologies in 2021 for selected brands.
Geely has accumulated a considerable amount of experience in intelligent systems, including front camera, front millimeter wave radar, 12 ultrasonic radars, and two 24G rear millimeter-wave radars. It is also at the forefront in forward-looking systems such as collision reduction system, ACC self-adaptive cruise system for reducing driving intensity, AEB system for avoiding accidents, as well as monitoring and reminding system with limited speed identification and fatigue detection.
Geely anticipates that future models released in 2021 will increase the demand for 5G and C-V2X on the basis of L2 and be equipped with L3 autonomous driving technology.
