When drivers disappear altogether, the drones will need a developed brain to meet the expectations of people in terms of adequacy and responsiveness. The basis for such systems laid right now. (The photo salon concept Volvo 360c.)

Large corporations are intensively developing the assistant driver and the autopilot, but the Swedes believe that they are able to gain the lead. In proof of the world brought on-Board supercomputer Zeus (“Zeus”). It satisfies the requirements of autonomy of the fourth level and is clearly able to evolve to the fifth. It is the brainchild of the newly established company Veoneer, subsidiary of global giant Autoliv. Helped her in this project, “drone” SP Zenuity (partners Veoneer and Volvo Cars), as well as the electronic giant Nvidia.

The company Veoneer reports that the new supercomputer to cope with the processing of data from the 27 sensors of various types (primarily cameras and radars). The project will grow.

In this project, the company Veoneer developed the basic hardware and basic software based on the architecture of Nvidia Drive AGX Xavier and operating system Nvidia Drive. A joint venture Zenuity has created specialized software for Autonomous driving and will continue to be responsible for the integration of Zeus in specific models of cars.

In Volvo believe that Autonomous shuttles, such as 360c, will be able in the future to displace the aircraft designed for short flights.

In parallel, the firm Volvo announced the deepening of cooperation with Nvidia. The Swedes explained: the specialized “brain” artificial intelligence and chips from Nvidia will appear in the beginning of the next decade on production models based on the platform Scalable Product Architecture 2 (SPA 2). So, talking about the heirs of the current 90-th and 60-thseries.

The figure shows the chassis of the sedan S60 T8 Plug-in Hybrid. SPA 2 will develop the advantages of the current platform SPA, increasing the areas of electrification, Network connectivity and autonomy.

Note that the various processors from Nvidia because of their outstanding performance (tens of trillions of operations per second) are increasingly being used in the “brains” of drones. You may recall the mid in the racing offline Robocar, specialized units ProAI ZF and Audi zFAS, drones in the joint project of firms Bosch and Daimler and experienced Autonomous sedan of Lifan. And this is just recent examples.

Electric mobility brand Arcfoxcreated in 2016, the concern BAIC, at the March auto show in Geneva to formally present himself to the European public and tell about the model range. Be submitted at least two new electric cars. The first is the evolution of the sports prototype Arcfox-7. Over his next generation he worked Walter de Silva, former chief designer of Volkswagen. Second car is a crossover.

The teaser on the left we see only the shadow of the new supercar Arcfox-7. To the right is a piece of tail. Now they say “body” made of carbon fiber, dumped excess weight, and acceleration to 100 km/h lasts for 2.7 s. the price of the machine can reach 10 million yuan (of 97.8 million rubles).

The third model of the brand Arcfox clearly aimed at the mass market. Puffy profile devoid of the now familiar aggression. Apparently, this is a great family crossover SUV-minivan. While we know nothing about him, even an alleged name: Arcfox-3, or Arcfox-5.

Dvuhdverka previously considered the concept Arcfox-1, now named Lite and ready to go to the Chinese market this year. Length, width, height — 2986×1676×1492 mm, wheelbase — 1870. The electric motor produces 40 kW (54 HP, 120 N•m). The power reserve is only 150 km on the NEDC cycle.

ssangyong korando

Ssangyong korando. Внешность была анонсирована ещё три года назад концептом SIV-2 и почти в том же виде дошла до конвейера.

The appearance was announced three years ago, the concept SIV-2 and almost in the same form reached the conveyor. The creators say they were guided by the trend of the Low & Wide — did Korando broad and squat. Approximate dimensions: length — 4440 mm, width — 1860; height — 1640, the base — 2675.

Today in South Korea opened taking orders for SsangYong Korando fourth generation (C300). Yes, the SUV is still not really shown, the description is sketchy, and the prices assigned. Equipment Shiny on the “mechanics” is worth 22 160 000 won (1.3 million rubles), two pedal drive option Delight is estimated at 25 000 230 (1.48 million), the top version of the Fantastic requests 27 930 000 (1,64 million). Cars will appear at dealers in March.

Decorated fancy, but somehow too Asian. Decorations in place an integrated exhaust pipes baffles. Behind the storage door — 551 liter volume by the VDA (486 l).

Officially named only one engine — the “newly designed” diesel 1.6 (according to rumors, 136), “first in class”. Petrol brethren will represent turboservice 1.5 (supposedly 163 HP) or 1.2. If gamma motor so new and important that later it will divide the family of Tivoli. Mild hybrid and fully electric version will come out eventually.

In the top configuration is Blaze Cockpit. Here digital tidy diagonal of 10.25 inches and nine-inch Central display. Around the perimeter of put led lighting. About the materials yet nothing is said.

Have a six-speed “mechanics” and “automatic” alternative is not visible. All-wheel drive is expected, but the rate on the front. Autopilot “2.5” relies on cameras and radar cruise control, and is called Deep Control. Higher level of safety is provided by seven airbags, the auto brake, the monitoring of dead zones, markings, and so on. Full premiere of Korando for foreign markets, in theory, will be the fifth March in Geneva. On the Russian expanses brand SsangYong is conserved, so the hope for new Actyon — the phantom.
