Lotus Technology Inc., a leading global luxury electric vehicle (EV) maker, revved up the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with its showcase of next-generation autonomous driving technology. Under its intelligent driving arm, Lotus Robotics, the company unveiled a suite of software and hardware solutions that promise to revolutionize the driving experience.
This display of innovation aligns with Lotus Tech’s Vision80 strategy, which emphasizes continuous R&D and technological advancement. The company’s commitment to self-driving technology was further solidified by their recent approval to test Level 3 (L3) autonomous driving functions on select highways in China.
Unveiling the Future of Driving:
Lotus Robotics captivated CES attendees with its trio of software solutions: ROBO Soul, ROBO Matrix, and ROBO Galaxy. These platforms cater to advanced driver assistance systems, remote vehicle operation, and cloud data management, respectively. Notably, these technologies are already integrated into Lotus Tech’s hyper SUV Eletre and hyper GT Emeya, highlighting their real-world application.
Both Eletre and Emeya boast cutting-edge autonomous driving hardware, including dual NVIDIA DRIVE Orin chips and an industry-leading cognition module. This robust system ensures aviation-level security and redundancy, allowing the vehicles to intelligently identify and avoid road hazards. Additionally, the Eletre features the world’s first deployable LIDAR system, complemented by five sensor types for comprehensive 360° perception.
Testing the Waters:
Lotus Tech’s L3 autonomous driving test license in Wuxi, China, marks a significant milestone in their journey towards self-driving vehicles. This pilot program allows Eletre drivers to experience L3 functionality on designated highways, providing valuable data and refining the technology for wider adoption.
CEO Qingfeng Feng’s Perspective:
“Lotus Robotics’ leading technologies showcase our world-class R&D capabilities and represent a giant leap forward in our Vision80 strategy,” said Mr. Feng. “We are excited to test these innovations on the roads of Wuxi and continue pushing the boundaries of intelligent driving, ultimately delivering safer and more enjoyable journeys for our customers around the globe.”
