Huanyu Zhixing is a leader in autonomous driving algorithms and a top supplier of computing equipment.
The company focuses on algorithms and computing platforms for autonomous driving. At present, the core products are Ares' autonomous driving SOC module, Titan series domain controllers and Athena software system (open software architecture and cloud simulation platform). Huanyu Zhixing is a supplier of China Mobile's connected intelligent driving equipment and a software development partner of Huawei MDC. In December 2016, it jointly demonstrated and reported on the construction of a 5G connected automatic driving private network with the Dongfeng and Huawei to the Ministry of Communications. Minister The instructions are strongly promoted. In the second half of 2020, the vehicle-level SOC calculation module and Athena open software system will be launched to improve the L4 level Titan series and L2 level Titan lite series domain controllers, and further consolidate Huanyu's leading edge in the industry.
In the vertical field, Huanyu focuses on self-driving scenarios that are closely related to life within the city, such as takeaway delivery, courier delivery, and last-mile travel services. Currently, the product has been used in more than a dozen autonomous driving models after many years of iteration, including Dongfeng Sharing-VAN, Sharing-Box, EV350, AX7, A60 series, SAIC MARVEL X, Jinlv Xingchen, etc.
The company was founded in 2014 and revenue grew by more than 167% in 2019. There are about 60 employees, with R&D centers in Wuhan and Germany, and support and operation teams in Suzhou and Hangzhou, focusing on reshaping the shape of the car with 5G+AI to make driving smarter and more reliable. The main business model is to provide high-performance and high-density computing platforms and open and reliable autonomous driving algorithms and software for OEMs, operators and first-tier suppliers, and become the future Huawei in the field of autonomous driving in China.
Huanyu Zhixing has been focusing on the research and development and promotion of autonomous driving products for a long time, based on independent innovation and ecological cooperation, and gradually formed the sales scale of core products and landing products. The key points of business development are briefly described as follows:
In 2013, Huanyu core staff and Dongfeng Passenger Vehicle Technology Center jointly developed the first self-driving prototype of Dongfeng Group, and promoted it on Hubei Satellite TV, preparing to participate in the Beijing Auto Show. Subsequently, in 2014, the company was established and began technology engineering and market transformation. The prototypes have been tested and optimized in various complex scenarios such as Wuhan East Third Ring Road, Guanggu Huandao, and Huashan Country Garden.
In 2016, with the support of Dongfeng, and Huawei 2012 laboratory, jointly developed a 5G networked autonomous driving system, and gave a special report on the 5G autonomous driving network to the Ministry of Transport in December. BMW V2X was also reported on the same stage. The driving department, then, this successful case was fully affirmed and promoted. On this basis, Huawei and Audi jointly developed a networked automatic driving system. Huanyu Zhixing also obtained the qualification of China Mobile's networked automatic driving supplier.
Since 2017, the company has commercialized the networked automatic driving system accumulated for many years, began to develop the Titan series of automatic driving computing units, and released the first domestic single-board automatic driving solution in the first half of 2018. Four large SOCs, three onboard Gigabit switching chips, 4G and V2X modules, functional safety MCU and GPS/IMU positioning chip are integrated on the circuit board of large and small size, which perfectly realize the functions of L4 autonomous driving. . In the second half of 2018, Athena, an algorithm and software system supporting Titan single-board autonomous driving, was released. Finally, the construction of an autonomous driving product line integrating hardware and software was completed.
Subsequently, Titan products quickly iterated, upgraded one generation each year, doubled the computing power, reduced the volume and power consumption by half, reduced the cost and the selling price, reached the development speed of Moore’s Law, and the software system also kept up with the development trend of international autonomous driving. As of the third version, the perceptual deep learning model has reached the industry SOTA level. The performance of fusion positioning can support various scenarios. It is predicted that multiple LSTMs and social-pools will be used to achieve the target motion behavior in complex scenarios. Decision planning is also achieved. Automatic learning of weight coefficients, and automatic simulation of specific scene conditions set. The software and hardware integrated products, after multi-wheel vehicle factory evaluation and system testing, finally obtained 10 OEM, 5 IT companies, 3 vehicle operation platform orders, single project orders also exceeded 10 million.
From the second half of 2019, Huanyu will further accelerate product innovation, start pre-research of single-chip SOC L2~L2.5 automatic driving solutions, and will achieve delivery by the end of 2020, and will further define the calculation and algorithm system of automatic driving New benchmark.
In the future, Huanyu Zhixing is determined to be China's first-class automatic driving technology and product supplier, continue to be refined and strengthen its core products, and work with its peers to promote the development and progress of the domestic unmanned driving industry.
The core products of Huanyu Zhixing are autonomous driving computing platforms, including TITAN series L4 domain controllers and Ares series L2 domain controllers, as well as open and reliable autonomous driving algorithms and software.
The main business is to provide automakers, operators and first-tier suppliers with cost-effective and large-scale production of autonomous driving parts, and focus on the market-oriented landing business in the specific city-specific autonomous driving scenarios that are closely related to life, such as takeaway delivery, express delivery Delivery and travel services.
