Today, the third model of WM Motor was officially unveiled at the 2020 Apollo Ecology Conference hosted by Baidu. The name of the car has not been officially released, but it is still an SUV model, just like the EX5 and EX6 Plus.
The vehicle was developed by WM Motor in collaboration with Baidu Apollo platform and adopts a new electronic and electrical architecture. There are two highlights in terms of hardware.
Firstly, the vehicle is equipped with the first 7 nm process technology vehicle-grade Qualcomm 8155 chip and 5G baseband in the vehicle entertainment system.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip corresponds to the consumer version chip, Snapdragon 855. Compared with the most powerful Snapdragon 820A in the current vehicle grade chips, Snapdragon 8155 is faster in speed and lower in power consumption.
As shown in the video, the third model of WM Motor’s central control consists of 3 screens.
Secondly, in terms of driving assistance, the car is equipped with WM Motor’s self-developed autonomous driving domain controller. The vehicle’s perception hardware consists of 5 cameras, 5 77 GHz millimeter wave radars, and 12 ultrasonic radars.
Through the Apollo system, the vehicle can recognize and identify parking lots and roads, upload to the cloud, complete the calculation and issue instructions, and accomplish automatic driving, obstacle avoidance, intelligent search for parking spaces and autonomous parking and exit without human intervention.
According to the official video, users only need to park their car at the entrance of the parking lot, and the vehicle will automatically enter the parking lot and find a parking space without human intervention. Retrieving the car only requires issuing a command on the mobile app, and the car will drive out of the parking space to the user’s designated pickup point.
