DeepBlue: the cutest autonomous bus in town

Visitors to CE China were able to test the comfort and intelligence of the brand-new panda-shaped driverless electric bus by DeepBlue Technology, with its in-vehicle robot voice interaction, passenger abnormal behaviour monitoring and intelligent emergency escape system.

Indeed, hot on the heels of the “Shift” conference at IFA in Berlin, CE China this year for the first time highlighted connected driving and new energy vehicles with practical exhibits and examples of vehicles and technology. 

Behind DeepBlue are Shenlan Technology and the Luxembourg National Laboratory, who have established three joint laboratories, namely, intelligent driving technology, intelligent and precision manufacturing, data and financial security. They are cooperating with many well-known enterprises and institutions at home and abroad to establish artificial intelligence and AIOT. Joint labs in various related fields such as Zhilian, human-computer interaction, and AI chips have jointly built a deep research and development research system.

In the field of autonomous driving, DeepBlue Technology employs vision-oriented multi-sensor fusion technology, combined with precise positioning navigation, enhanced learning decision systems and optimal vehicle safety planning control technologies to create high performance, low cost and integrated vehicles. The various hardware platforms work together with the auto-driving technologies to provide a seamless, driverless experience that people will be able to enjoy in the future. 

DeepBlue’s Panda bus incorporates the latest in AI technologies such as L3-L4 autonomous driving, in-house developed biometrics and payment capabilities, and smart retail and advertising options to reimagine the mass transport experience from a commuter perspective. The Panda bus runs on a lithium iron phosphate battery and can operate for more than eight hours per charge.
