Xiaomi announced the start of work on its own electric vehicles last year, and the company’s first mass-produced cars are expected as early as next year. What they will be is a big question, but there is no doubt that they will implement the functions of an autonomous driving system. This is also indicated by the pictures published today in the Chinese media.
These images show a Xiaomi self-driving car. To be more precise, this is a mule for a proprietary autonomous driving system based on the popular BYD Han electric car in China. It can be seen that the car is stuffed with various sensors, and in the trunk there is switching and measuring equipment. On the roof is a large lidar.
There will be many sensors in the production version, but it will hardly be possible to count on the autonomy of the same Tesla – you can wait for a maximum of the third level of autonomy, but this is also very good. After the official announcement in 2023, the mass production of Xiaomi’s first electric car will start in the first half of 2024.

No more accidents with electric scooters? Kicksharing “Jurent” is testing scooters with autopilot and obstacle recognition
The kicksharing service Yurent is testing a new generation of electric scooters with the function of autonomous movement and obstacle recognition. “Yurent kicksharing service is testing a new scooter model equipped with a camera and computer vision technology. The scooter has the function of autonomous movement and can independently recognize obstacles to avoid collisions.– reported in the press service of “Yurent”.
The scooter is equipped with a semi-automatic autopilot mode, the press service explained. It can be remotely controlled to move it to the right place – for example, to a parking lot or to a scooter service point for battery replacement.
It also recognizes obstacles using a wide-angle camera and artificial intelligence. So, he sees people, vehicles and road markings and can independently respond to them to prevent an emergency. Before an obstacle, the scooter brakes itself.

So far, the technology is being tested on five scooters until the end of the summer season. If the test is successful, the service will consider launching scooters with similar functionality for a wide audience, Yurent stressed.
