#Volkswagen power motor

Volkswagen China announced that the APP290 power motor was officially put into production at the Volkswagen Tianjin Transmission Plant. The plant has an annual production capacity of 180,000 units. In the future, APP290 will be installed in Volkswagen, Audi, and Skoda’s MQB pure electric vehicles.

In addition, in next September, the plant will also start production of the E-Drive MQB APP310 power motor, with an annual production capacity of 330,000 units. The motor will be installed in the ID. series and the MEB platform models of Audi, Skoda and other brands. By then, the total annual production capacity of APP290 and APP310 motors will reach 510,000 units.

#Baidu Apollo L4 Fully Autonomous Driving

Recently, China's Internet giant Baidu unveiled the Level 4 autonomous driving vision-based closed-loop solution designed for urban roads, the Baidu Apollo Lite, at the CVPR 2019 (the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition). According to Wang Liang, head of Baidu Apollo Technical Committees, the Apollo Lite is so far China's only level 4 (fully autonomous driving) urban road-specific vision-based sensing solution that can process a huge amount of data generated by 10 cameras at a speed of 200 frames per second. The maximum frame drop for each camera is under 5‰. Using the solution, vehicular sensors are able to achieve the 360-degree in-time environment perception and extend its head-on detection range as far as 240 meters. However, the development of the solution does not mean that Baidu will abandon its existing lidar-based technology. It is reported that Apollo Lite has been tested in many areas such as Daoxiang Lake in Beijing.

In the second half of 2019, Baidu will begin commercial operation of self-driving taxis in certain areas of Changsha. According to the plan, Baidu will launch 100 self-driving vehicles in Changsha during the year.
