Seize the "bearing heights" with "smart points"

In 1991, in order to undertake Sino-French joint venture Shenlong Automobile Co., Ltd., Wuhan Development Zone started construction in Zhuankou Street in the southwest of Wuhan. At that time, the traditional fuel car was all over. A few days ago, Junfeng Motor Corporation and China Power Investment Corporation together began to discuss "smart, professional, standard" pure electric vehicles at the Shenlong Technology Center.

"I would rather have a bed in Hankou, don't want to be a suite." 71-year-old Luo Zhifeng is a local of Dunkou. Before I talked about it, the old people still remembered, and the "wasteful grass and muddy dirt road" and the "Tenlifans rely on the city, and the tens of thousands of lights are shining through the night" are in stark contrast.

In the past 28 years, Wuhan Development Zone, as an important window and experimental field for reform and opening up in Hubei Province, has insisted on building an advanced manufacturing industrial base, bringing together seven automakers including Shenlong, Dongfeng Honda, Dongfeng Passenger Vehicle and Dongfeng Renault, as well as Valeo and Gee. More than 500 world-renowned auto parts manufacturers, such as Trak and Natiefu, have become well-known Chinese and foreign “car capitals”, pushing Wuhan into the “car era” from the “steel age”. In 2018, Wuhan Development Zone produced 1.054 million complete vehicles, accounting for 43.6% of Hubei Province. Dongfeng Honda has also become the first single enterprise in Wuhan with an output value of over 100 billion yuan.

In recent years, with the tremendous changes in the global automotive industry, the “cars” have also felt the pressure. In peace of mind, Wuhan Development Zone proposed to start a new round of entrepreneurship and promote the transformation and upgrading of the automobile industry.

Since 2016, the EU countries have taken the lead in proposing new fuel vehicles. GM, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and other companies are accelerating the development of electric vehicle products. At the same time, some cross-border companies are greatly involved in the intelligent network of the automotive industry. Experts believe that China's promotion of manufacturing will become stronger and stronger, and Wuhan should concentrate on developing the automobile industry, especially to seize the development opportunities of new energy and intelligent network that represent the future direction.

In the future, what will the Wuhan Development Zone continue to lead the development of the real economy? On the one hand, accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the existing pillar industries, and support the promotion of technological transformation of enterprises; on the other hand, focus on cultivating new kinetic energy, and do a good job in the development of new-generation vehicles, robots, general aviation and other strategic emerging industries to create world-class “cars”. ".

A tough battle to seize the "high ground" of the development of the automobile industry with "Chi-Higa Point" sounded the horn of the charge.

Smart car "friend circle" expanded

In November 2016, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Hubei Provincial Government signed a cooperation framework agreement on “Smart Vehicle and Smart Transportation Application Demonstration Based on Broadband Mobile Internet” to clarify the construction of a national-level smart car and smart transportation application demonstration zone in Wuhan Development Zone. Broadband Internet smart car, smart transportation development strategy research, application demonstration project construction, industrial ecosystem construction; Junfeng Motor registered in the development zone must contribute to this.

The reporter saw in the newly built National New Energy and Intelligent Networking Automobile Base that the first phase of the closed test site road pile foundation project has been completed. According to the construction party, the base includes a two square kilometer closed test field, a 90 square kilometer intelligent networked vehicle demonstration zone, and a number of new energy and intelligent networked automotive innovation industrial parks.

At present, the base has attracted more than 30 artificial intelligence research and development, automatic driving test, 5G communication and other related enterprises. According to the plan, by 2022, a complete industrial ecosystem covering the next generation of automotive R&D and design, intelligent terminal manufacturing, and intelligent transportation platform operation will be formed, and a “new energy and intelligent networked automobile innovation center with global influence” will be built.

At the same time, the Wuhan Development Zone automobile enterprises represented by Dongfeng Company are also accelerating the transformation and upgrading of the traditional automobile industry. The relevant person in charge of Dongfeng Company introduced that Dongfeng New Energy No. 1 Park, which invested nearly 10 billion yuan, was put into operation in the development zone, and is gradually forming 800,000 sets of electronic control systems and 200,000 sets of battery system manufacturing capacity; No. 2 Park is under construction. The manufacturing capacity of 2 million sets of various electric drive and fuel cell powertrains will be formed. At present, Dongfeng has put more than 10 new energy products into the market, such as “Dongfeng Fengshen” and “Dongfeng Junfeng”, and plans to launch 75 new energy automobile products in the next five years.

In terms of intelligent networked vehicles, Dongfeng Company is accelerating the development and verification of driverless vehicles, launching Dongfeng Fengshen AX7 Autopilot 2.0 and Dongfeng 5G autonomous driving prototypes.

Dongfeng's research and development of a variety of intelligent new energy vehicles will provide services." Zhou Jianguang, deputy director of Dongfeng Technology Center told reporters.

Two heavy trucks with a length of more than ten meters and a load of several tens of tons are automatically driven on the road. The first car leads, and the rear car directly “reproduces” the first car movements, such as following, turning, emergency parking, etc. – a few days ago, the automatic driving start-up Enterprise Wuhan Huanyu Zhixing Technology Co., Ltd. developed heavy-duty unmanned formation technology and successfully tested on the road. The project research and development person Zhang Pin said that the test is successful, which indicates that the automatic driving technology "has the domestic leading level", "the heavy truck formation realizes the automatic driving, in addition to liberating the driver's hands and feet, it can also reduce the 10% to 14%. The fuel consumption is suitable for closed environments such as ports and semi-enclosed environments such as highways.

To build smart cars, we must move from single-handedness to group operations and take the road of industrial clusters. At present, Wuhan Development Zone has built four “Innovation Valleys”, which have gathered various emerging industries. Among them, Nantaizi Lake Innovation Valley is a public innovation service platform created by Wuhan for Industrial 4.0 digital manufacturing technology. With a planned area of 2 square kilometers, the park focuses on the development of intelligent design, intelligent manufacturing, intelligent equipment and car networking industries. It has attracted dozens of research and development institutions related to big data, new energy and intelligent network.


The rise of world-class "cars"

“Wuhan Development Zone will focus on key enterprises, key technologies and talents, and introduce the best policies, provide the best services, and create the best environment.” The relevant leaders said that they will strive to build the development zone into a domestic leader and the world in 10 years.

Two other hydrogen refueling stations were also under construction.

"Developing new energy and intelligent networked automobile industry, we need more top-level design to solve technical breakthroughs and cost-effective issues." In the view of Academician Zhong Zhihua, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the main problem of new energy vehicles is "three powers". (Battery, electric drive, electronic control) system costs are high, subsidies are not sustainable, we must put the cost performance. It is recommended to implement the “seven new”, that is, the way of linking new materials, new structures, new processes, new functions, new equipment, new energy and new models.

"The automobile industry is facing a 'big change in a hundred years', electric, intelligent, networked, lightweight, and shared, becoming the development trend of 'next generation cars.' We must unswervingly meet the technological revolution and industrial transformation. 'Shuangfeng' superimposed, unswervingly build a world-class auto industry cluster of trillions."
