Global Autonomous Driving Engineers Join Efforts to Make Driverless Cars in Guiyang
GUIYANG, China, Mar. 14, 2018 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

About 30 global autonomous driving engineers and 10 mentors from 12 countries 
gathered in southwest China's Guiyang City to join an open collaboration 
camping program which kicked off on March 9. The "Move it Hackthon" program 
will see two autonomous vehicles made and tested on roads within five days, 
according to the Publicity Department of the CPC Guiyang Committee.

An open smart factory named Czone and one global collaboration platform were 
also launched by "Move it". The first "Move it" global autonomous driving 
challenge was open for registration.

"Move it" is a global innovative open source community on autonomous driving 
dedicated to the development, manufacturing and promotion of latest automobile 
technologies. The "Move it Hackathon" is the community's first offline 
activity, aiming to address common challenges facing autonomous driving by 
cooperation. The solutions will be shared to reduce innovation and application 
thresholds of driverless cars and expand the technology's use.

The engineers and mentors who participate in this collaborative camp all come 
from first-class self-driving enterprises and universities. The activities 
covered wire control technology transformation, algorithm debugging, automatic 
driving sample car installation and commissioning, mentor sharing and so on. 
The engineers will implement the line-controlled vehicle technology on the spot 
and create the basic chassis of the line-controlled vehicle. The automatic 
driving system will be installed and debugged on a full-size car to achieve 
tracking and obstacle avoidance based on differential GPS or laser radar as 
well as traffic control personnel gesture recognition and control. The last 
phase will be installing and debugging the self-driving cars and then set for 
group competition.
