无人驾驶的路线之争

通用汽车与谷歌的无人驾驶大战

这篇彭博商业周刊的报道展现了通用汽车在无人驾驶方面的人才和技术积累,但正如作者所言,通用汽车所代表的乃是传统汽车行业的渐进方式,但硅谷公司显然不想这样:

The question is whether GM can get to the future on time. Super Cruise won’t hit the market until 2017. Elon Musk has just begun offering autopilot on his Tesla Model S. Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, and Volvo have similar hands-free driving systems in the works. Then there’s Google, which wants to skip the half-measures and do a full-on moonshot: totally autonomous cars that, regulators willing, won’t even come with a steering wheel or gas pedal. Google’s latest prototypes are already driving themselves around Silicon Valley, where they’re known as Koala cars because of their bulbous shape, and they may be available for purchase right around the time GM’s hands-free Caddy hits showrooms.

硅谷无人驾驶的产业链

硅谷公司不太会涉及过多无人驾驶汽车的生产和制造,更多的还是寻求合作伙伴:

Re/code文章称,无人驾驶汽车的外壳可能由5家公司制造:Roush、Delphi、Edison2、Atieva 和Renovo Motors。Roush是位于美国密歇根州的一家“精品汽车供应商”,它有先发优势:为谷歌无人驾驶汽车原型产品组装外壳。
