Ideal ONE assists driving rear-end engineering vehicles, the official has responded

Some time ago, an ideal ONE with adaptive cruise and lane keeping functions turned on collided with an engineering vehicle at a high speed, and did not decelerate before the collision.

At present, the ideal official has responded to the accident:

The user has turned on the NOA (Navigation Assisted Driving) function, but the user has been in a hands-off situation, that is, without holding the steering wheel. In addition, the accident was outside the working range (stationary vehicle) of the ADAS of the 2021 Ideal ONE.

Remember, assisted driving is really just assistance.

Aston Martin unveils DBR22 convertible concept

On August 16, Aston Martin released a concept model DBR22 with an open cockpit.

This car was specially built by Aston Martin to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its Q custom division. The overall shape was inspired by the DBR1 and DB3S, and the rear lines were very elegant.

It is worth mentioning that the entire rear subframe of the new car is completely made by 3D printing technology. Aston Martin combines the printed aluminum parts with the body, which greatly reduces the weight of the body without affecting the rigidity of the frame. .

The new car will be equipped with a 5.2T twin-turbo V12 engine with 705 horsepower and 753 Nm of torque.

It doesn't look like James Bond, there's no glass to keep him from bullets.

General Manager of GAC Aian: There is basically no bargaining power in cooperation with Huawei

The 19th China Automobile Marketing Summit, Hangzhou Summit, has been held recently. Xiao Yong, deputy general manager of GAC Aian New Energy Vehicle Co., Ltd., mentioned at the meeting that GAC Group will carry out self-research on battery technology and battery factory construction to ensure its core competitiveness.

Interestingly, in response to the question of "how can new energy car companies get rid of the role of migrant workers", he complained:

Huawei is a relatively large supplier, and its products may be relatively good, but the price is not controlled. He said that if GAC Aian wanted to cooperate with Huawei, it would find that there was basically no bargaining power.

Bridgestone invests in self-driving company, accelerates development of new tires

Some time ago, Bridgestone announced an investment in TIER IV, a start-up company that develops autonomous driving software. The “Autoware” it leads has all the necessary functions to design autonomous driving. In order to ensure safe autonomous driving, Bridgestone has conducted a large number of field tests.


Bridgestone's lightweight tire technology is installed on NIO ET7

Regarding the purpose of the investment, Bridgestone hopes to "learn TIER IV's autonomous driving expertise to accelerate the development of innovative tire technology and next-generation mobility solutions".

Elon Musk: Believe in technology to create a better future

Recently, Musk was invited by the magazine "China Netcom" to publish an article "Believe that technology creates a better future", as always emphasizing the importance of clean energy to the future. Interested friends can click here to jump to read.

He believes that vehicles such as cars, planes, ships and other vehicles will be fully electrified, and Tesla's humanoid robots will have roughly the same size, shape and capabilities as humans in the future. For the brain-computer interface unfamiliar to Chinese friends, he judges that it will play a great value in the field of medical rehabilitation and empower the disabled.

Interestingly, the Martian Musk still expresses his obsession with space, saying, "My greatest hope is that humans create a self-sufficient city on Mars."

On the other hand, Qin Gang, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, recently liked Musk's tweet and said, "From 0 to 1 million in less than three years. This is an amazing achievement, and the cooperation between China and the United States has contributed to This achievement. Congratulations to Musk and all Tesla Shanghai contributors."

By the way, do you have an idea for Mars?

Ford unveils new technology: headlights can project road information

Ford recently released a new video showing Ford's latest projector headlight technology.

This projection headlight can display road information in real time, such as when the road ahead is icy, or when heavy rain is about to occur, the headlight will project warning icons such as snowflakes. If there is a speed limit on the road, speed limit signs are also projected to remind drivers not to speed.

Ford said it's still experimenting with the headlight technology and isn't sure which production car it will launch in, but it could be the first to hit the European market.

Dong Chejun thinks that this technology is unlikely to be commercialized. Isn't HUD fragrant?

Xiaopeng S4 super fast charging first online, Weilai executives come to comment

The Xpeng S4 ultra-fast charging pile was officially launched on August 15, with a maximum output power of 480kW and a single-pile maximum output current of 670A. It can be charged on the Xpeng G9 for 5 minutes and has a battery life of 200 kilometers.

Starting from the third quarter of this year, Xpeng Motors will start laying S4 equipment in the top ten cities in G9 orders, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. charging station.

The actions of Xiaopeng Motors this time attracted the attention of @Mr_Shen Fei, vice president of NIO Power Management. He said, "It's good to charge fast, but I can't agree that this is better than battery replacement. Battery replacement is still more competitive."

Dong Chejun would like to ask if charging for 5 minutes and lasting 200 kilometers can solve everyone's battery life anxiety ?

On the other hand, are you willing to pay more to charge at your own charging station ? Still like me, go to a cheaper 3rd party charging station.

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
