SINGAPORE & SHENZHEN, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) and BYD Co. Ltd., one of China’s largest companies specializing in battery technologies, has signed a joint laboratory agreement to develop electric vehicles with autonomous vehicle sensors. The joint laboratory will leverage I2R’s in-depth vehicle expertise in integrating Autonomous Vehicle (AV) technologies and combine BYD’s state-of-the-art electric vehicle (EV) capabilities to develop: Drive-by-Wire system on BYD’s electric cars using electronic controls to activate the brakes, control the steering, and operate other systems in the vehicles. An autonomous Vehicle fleet management system that can dynamically allocate AV resources based on real time information or vehicle-location, route, origin-destination information.

Moreover, as Singapore’s largest ICM research institute, I2R, will implement its primary cutting-edge autonomous vehicle sensory system that collects data on AV intelligence and AV fleet management in these electric vehicles. This data will be useful for the AV robotic intelligence to learn situational awareness in the context of Singapore traffic rules and to make intelligent judgments based on predicted responses. This can enable the driverless system to co-exist seamlessly, predictably, and safely with human-driven vehicles in the future.

Dr. Lee Shiang Long, Executive Director of I2R said, “I2R is very proud to be able to attract BYD, one of China’s largest companies specializing in electric vehicles to invest heavily in Singapore and jointly develop more than one hundred electric cars with autonomous capabilities. With I2R’s expertise in the autonomous vehicle technologies, coupled with BYD’s vast experience in electric vehicles and strong support from relevant Singapore authorities, we hope to benefit the transport industry in Singapore and countries all over the world.”

Mr. Liu Xueliang, General Manager of BYD Asia-Pacific Auto Sales Group, said, “Intelligent cars will be one of the most important directions for the transportation industry in the future. The collaboration between BYD and I2R, Singapore’s largest ICM research institute, with its deep knowledge in autonomous vehicle technologies, is going to be an exciting journey for us. We believe that a new energy vehicle embedded with autonomous driving technologies will provide drivers with a completely different driving experience.”
