On September 16 and 17, the 6th annual meeting of China’s GNSS and LBS & the 1st Satellite Application Expo was held in Shenzhen, China by GNSS and LBS Association of China. Academicians, experts, officials, scholars and business representatives attended the meeting to introduce latest achievements, exchange information about new technologies, so as to together promote the development of GNSS and LBS industry.

As a leading provider of navigable digital map and an active player of HD map in autonomous driving, eMapgo hosted Autonomous Driving Forum, one of the most important forums in this annual meeting. eMapgo’s Vice President Vincent Yang took the chair.

Beijing Innovation Center for Mobility Intelligent | Manager Chao Bi

Up to now, only 7 vehicle proving grounds have been approved by Ministry of Industry and Information Technology(MIIT) and Ministry of Public Security (MPS). Among them, the biggest proving ground is National Pilot Zone (Beijing, Hebei) of C/AV and Mobility Intelligent testing ground located in Yizhuang, Beijing. Beijing Innovation Center for Mobility Intelligent is responsible for the construction and operation of this pilot zone.

In the forum, Mr. Bi said that as drivers need license to drive a car, autonomous vehicles need to be tested before going out on the road. He also detailed the plan of the construction of proving ground and open road.

TuSimple | Autonomous Driving Researcher Dr. Nan Wu

Dr. Wu shared level 4 autonomous driving truck solution. He said, relatively closed areas, like highway, wharf and freight yard, are more appropriate for the early development of autonomous driving. TuSimple focus on the development of level 4 autonomous driving trucks. Its solution mainly relies on computer vision technology, which requires demanding algorithm and large computing capability. TuSimple is one of a few Chinese companies that have got licenses for testing of autonomous driving on open road in California, USA.

Geo Technologies | Founder&CTO Xuekun Wang

Geo Technologies is a big data analysis company. It collects a large number of traffic big data through crowd-sourcing, and then mine, analyze and utilize these data. Mr. Wang explained how autonomous driving HD map can be made through crowd-sourcing, and why crowd sourcing is so important in autonomous driving.

StarNeto | Sanetel CEO Dr. Zhongyi Zhang

StarNeto is a company that has a project on Intelligent Driving Test, China’s first pilot project of industrial application of HD Beidou with output value of over 100 million RMB. Dr. Zhang was invited to give a speech on ideas and plans of “Beidou+Inertia+” to promote the industrial development of intelligent driving.

Pateo | Senior Technical Manager Hongjiang Zheng 

V2X is complementary to ADAS system. For example, radar and camera can provide information about vehicles and obstacles beyond the range of normal sight, which paves the way of modern transportation, vehicle interconnection and eventually autonomous driving.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University | Prof. Haojin Zhu

Safety issue is important in realizing autonomous driving. Professor Haojing Zhu, from Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, was invited to give a speech on safety issue and the development of relevant legislation abroad. Prof. Zhu said, in the context of rapid development of autonomous driving, relevant legislation would be speeded up.

Panel Discussion | Safety, Security and relevant legislation in the Age of Autonomous Driving

Dr. Kevin Wang, chairman of eMapgo, proposed that, both safety and national security are involved in autonomous driving. Compared with safety issue, security issue attracts less attention, but actually it is more complicated and the relevant legislation is more time-consuming. Dr. Wang summarized four issues in the relevant legislation regarding legality and security:

 (1) legality of collecting HD map data through crowd-sourcing;

 (2) the difficulty of real time update caused by data encryption requirement;

 (3) national security issue caused by private enterprise controlled mobile monitoring Skynet which consists of numerous vehicle installed cameras;

 (4) network security issue of how to prevent hacking and enemy’s remote attacks;

On one hand, Dr. Wang appealed for acceleration of relevant legislation. One the other hand, he suggested that as it is illegal for companies with no certificate to collect map data through crowd-sourcing, it is more proper for them to cooperate with companies like eMapgo with certificate of surveying and mapping to avoid legal risks.
