Nullmax, an autonomous driving technology company, has officially launched an autonomous driving system solution “MAX”. The company believes it will lead to large-scale commercialization of autonomous driving in the Chinese market.
According to the company, the solution is a complete autonomous driving based on Xavier computing platform in China. It can provide a full set of autonomous driving functions including Highway Pilot (HWP), Traffic Jam Pilot (TJP) and Autonomous Valet Parking (AVP) with automotive grade sensors, embedded chip, and standard-compliant software and algorithms. It’s expected to be put into mass production around 2020.
Besides various functions, MAX adopts a vision-based perception system of multi-sensor fusion, using camera, radar and ultrasonic sensor as the main sensors and carrying a driver monitoring system. Also, all the software and algorithms is developed by Nullmax independently make MAX stand out from the crowd. Apart from these sub-modules like perception fusion, planning and control, the MaxOS platform also helps MAX perform better.
In the next stage, Nullmax will provide MAX for Tier 1 and OEMs to facilitate the large-scale application of autonomous driving in China. It is predicted that mass production nomination of MAX will be made in 2019-2020, followed by the start of production (SOP) in 2021-2022 and continuous product optimization and upgrading in the next.
