Liuzhou October 23 (Wei Jiaxiu) recently, reporters in the SAIC General Wuling factory area to see an unmanned logistics car dragging the frame is flexible shuttle on the road. This is the daily scenario of the successful application of the first 5G cloud controlled logistics project combined with 5G+ network connection collaborative driving technology in The Wuling Hexi Base of SIGM in Liuzhou, Guangxi.
With the support of 5G technology, the car, like a “brain”, automatically brakes when encountering obstacles, slows down at the intersection, accurately reaches the operation area, and after unloading, automatically enters the next process cycle operation. At the same time, the whole process of vehicle operation is monitored with ultra-low delay through 5G link, and the data is sent back to the background control room at high speed, realizing the mixed flow operation of unmanned logistics and traditional logistics in the factory park.
It is reported that the traditional logistics in the park is often realized by manpower, which not only consumes manpower cost, but also has low efficiency. To this end, SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile Co., Ltd. has cooperated with China Mobile Guangxi Liuzhou Branch, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and China Mobile Internet of Things Co., Ltd. to carry out all-round in-depth cooperation in intelligent factory, park security intelligent monitoring, unmanned logistics, remote driving and other aspects.
The jointly created 5G cloud controlled logistics project realizes unmanned, visual and intelligent operation of logistics in the base through the integration of TECHNOLOGIES such as 5G vehicular cloud coordination, 5G private network, edge computing, artificial intelligence and automatic driving.
Now, in the logistics park control room staff simply by 5 g cloud platform remote operation, a key can start carrying cargo box logistics unmanned vehicles), and in accordance with the 5 g of beside the logistics lines deploy cloud charged with roadside devices, distributed to the vehicle logistics decision, make the “smart” give way to vehicles and pedestrians, to ensure security within the expo site.
“The project allows vehicles to operate safely without a human for 24 hours, greatly reducing the cost of enterprise operation. Next, we will promote unmanned logistics vehicles in various bases to realize the unmanned operation of the factory and truly realize the smart factory.” Said Mo Zhimin, a technical expert at the technology center of SGMW Automobile Co.
According to Pan Tao, an engineer at SAIC-GM-Wuling, the cloud-controlled logistics vehicle can carry more than 2 tons of material at a time. Up to now, SAIC-GM-Wuling has put more than 30 cloud-controlled logistics vehicles into production and operation, with more than 5 operating routes and a total mileage of 5,000 kilometers without safety personnel. This year, 5G cloud-controlled logistics will be productized to accelerate the commercialization of 5G cloud-controlled logistics. In the future, saic gm wuling factory after all link through wisdom, will implement the car – side outline – the cloud group synergy, support the stable operation of the logistics park 7 * 24 hours, is expected to improve logistics efficiency by more than 50%, reduce the cost of logistics capacity, with the comprehensive capacity of 500 tons/time calculation, the human cost is expected to save $450 million for five years.
According to statistics, Guangxi has the vehicle production bases of the four major automobile groups, the total output value of the automobile industry is 19.83 billion yuan, and the value-added of cloud production lines and unmanned logistics market is estimated to exceed 100 million yuan. In the future, the country will usher in the trillion-level industrial application market of automobile manufacturing and unmanned logistics 5G+ cloud computing.
Zhang Shijie, general manager of the government and Enterprise Customer Department of China Mobile Guangxi Liuzhou Branch, said that the next step, the company will use 5G, AI, cloud computing, unmanned logistics and other technologies to accelerate the digital transformation and upgrading of new energy vehicle companies. In Liuzhou city, we will build the urban unmanned logistics distribution industry chain first, continue to deepen the integrated application of communication and Internet of vehicles, and promote the realization of more efficient intelligent logistics operation.
