Inceptio presented its new truck with assisted driving, while Hyundai proposed two concept cars
The race to define the mobility of the future will become more and more compelling. And during CES Asia 2019 two car manufacturers presented a new system that aims to improve the lives of drivers through greater autonomy and a humanized design.
One of these automakers is the autonomous startup of Inceptio truck technology that wants to improve conditions for truck drivers in China and, during the CES Asia 2019 that was held in Shanghai, presented its first model: the Inceptio No. 1.
Inceptio, a facilitator for truck drivers
Among the most interesting technologies of this new model is the truck cart, which is equipped with sensors positioned around the vehicle. Using the data from these sensors, the autonomous driving software of Inceptio is able to maneuver the vehicle with millimeter precision and fast reaction times.
Julian Ma, CEO of Inceptio, said: “Today driving a large truck is manual labor. It is physically demanding and requires high levels of skill. It is not a much-desired job for many people because it takes away from home with long hours and driving night. ”
Inceptio n. 1 is a level 3 autonomous vehicle
Furthermore, Inceptio n. 1 can monitor the environment and manage most aspects of driving under certain conditions. However, driver intervention is still necessary when the vehicle is unable to navigate in some scenarios.
With Level 3 autonomy, Inceptio hopes to ease truck drivers from exhausting periods of concentration and also to improve the efficiency of long-distance interstate logistics. Inceptio will enter mass production within the next five years and will eventually provide a national logistics service via autonomous trucks powered by the company’s technology.
Hyundai Mobis, concept car with touch technology
The other company that presented a new type of mobility is Hyundai Mobis, which presented participants with a vision of how driving could be in the future. Mobis showed two concept cars at CES, hoping to attract Chinese consumers with its technologies. By incorporating what the company calls “virtual space touch technology” into the operating system, drivers can control the car through hand gestures.
The communication lighting outside the vehicle can also quickly identify the surrounding environment and interact with pedestrians. David Cho, general manager of the Business & Interior Business Team at the China Mobis shopping center, believes these technologies will be more mature and less expensive in the future.
