China-Singapore Online, Shanghai, December 2 (Reporter Chen Jing) Autonomous driving is an important competitive track in the field of artificial intelligence.

At present, enterprises in the field of artificial intelligence are joining hands with traditional automobile manufacturers and new energy technology companies to create an ecological chain in the field of autonomous driving new energy vehicles, from independent research and development to independent manufacturing, so that autonomous driving and new energy are closely integrated.

  During the visit on the 2nd, the reporter learned that Panda Automobile (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shenlan Technology Group (hereinafter referred to as: Shenlan Technology), signed a contract to acquire a traditional car manufacturer - FAW Lingyuan Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Called "FAW Lingyuan"), Hunan Jialijian New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Hunan Jialijian) is dedicated to new energy battery recycling and cascade utilization.

FAW Lingyuan will become the production base of Shenblue Technology's self-driving vehicles, which means that Shenblue Technology has the production capacity of complete vehicles.

It is understood that previously, Shenlan Technology has developed a complete set of platform-level self-driving vehicle solutions.

It is reported that after the signing, Hunan Jialijian will start the automotive power battery banking service and recycling project.

  Chen Haibo, founder and chairman of Shenlan Technology, said in an interview on the 2nd that he will form a joint venture with FAW Lingyuan to form a new energy vehicle company, focusing on hydrogen-powered heavy trucks and hydrogen-powered light trucks, and exploring car battery replacement services.

"Battery costs account for 40% of the cost of new energy vehicles, which has become an important factor affecting consumers' car purchases, and it is necessary to plan ahead." Zai Haibo pointed out.

In this regard, Huang Haibo, chairman of Hunan Jialijian, said: "Our battery bank can provide services such as battery replacement, leasing, and maintenance."

  The layout of the enterprise has not just begun, and a series of cooperation has been carried out one after another.

During the interview, the reporter learned that in October this year, Shenlan Technology Group signed a contract with Shandong Taishan Iron and Steel Group to establish a joint venture company.

Ding Dawei, technical director of Shenlan Technology's autonomous driving division, introduced that the cooperation between the two parties will focus on the production of unmanned new energy intelligent sanitation vehicles and equipment; Storage equipment, hydrogen energy output and other businesses.

In fact, under the background of "dual carbon", the transportation field has become an important breakthrough in the application of hydrogen energy and fuel cells. In the foreseeable future, new energy commercial vehicles will maintain strong growth.

  According to reports, last year, Shenlan Technology reached a cooperation with Yitong Travel Online Car Hailing.

According to Ni Bin, general manager of Shenlan Yitong Company, the panda taxi that Shenlan Technology is developing will be used in the operation of Yitong online car-hailing in the future.

  After a series of mergers and acquisitions and cooperation, Shenlan Technology, which was previously committed to platform technology research and development, can focus on vehicle design and vehicle manufacturing in the future, and at the same time, closely integrate autonomous driving with new energy.

By acquiring FAW Lingyuan and cooperating with Taishan Iron and Steel Group in production, Shenlan Technology has achieved a leap from independent research and development to independent manufacturing.

It is understood that the smart bus Panda Bus developed by Shenlan Technology has been tested and demonstrated in Tianjin, Wuhan, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other cities; the smart sanitation vehicle "Panda Road Sweeper" is used in some parks, Area and other scenarios.
