Video: Autonomous vehicle technology set for mass production

14 June 2024

Chinese autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) startup Horizon Robotics has begun its mass production strategy for its self-driving urban, highway and parking technology.

Called SuperDrive AD, the autonomous technology is on track to be ready for automotive OEMs in the fourth quarter of this year for vehicles rolling out in 2025. Horizon said it is collaborating with several automotive brands and tier-1 suppliers for SuperDrive AD.

The technology is a combination of software and hardware capabilities to provide autonomous driving in traffic and road environments with human-like interactions with road participants, Horizon Robotics said. This includes observing its entire environment and maneuvering safely around oncoming traffic, pedestrians, scooters and bicyclists.

Horizon said SuperDrive is designed to address autonomous vehicle challenges like:

  • High latency
  • Extensive rule sets
  • Heavy loads in perception architecture

This will help pave the way for widespread adoption of its technology and mass production in future vehicles, the company said.
