WeRide, a leading autonomous driving company focused on Level 4 (L4) technology, announced it will demonstrate its L4 sensor suite and pre-commercial solutions during the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference 2019 (GTC), and display its latest L4 autonomous vehicle model, the Nissan Leaf 2. The company also announced it will use the Nvidia ‘DRIVE AGX Pegasus’ platform for its next-generation autonomous vehicle fleet.

Tony Han, CEO and co-founder of WeRide said, "The pre-commercial L4 solutions that we are debuting at GTC are paving the way for WeRide's rollout of RoboTaxi services in China in the future. Our demonstration of the Nissan Leaf 2 is a significant step forward in showing that WeRide can help bring reliable, safe autonomous vehicles to market. Currently, WeRide is establishing partnerships with OEMs in China and around the world."

The new sensor suite is combined with WeRide's latest hardware and software solutions and is designed to increase accuracy and safety. The suite includes:

- All wavelength detection on roof rack covers full 360-degree FoV (Field of View). The multiple wavelength cross-verified sensor design makes the detection more reliable.

- The performance of LiDAR sensors has been significantly improved with up to 250 meters detection range facing front and extra coverage on both sides.

- A front nose LiDAR for early detection has been designed to adapt to road and traffic conditions in China.

- Data volume collected from all sensors is increased significantly, with real-time synchronization leveraging the Nvidia ‘DRIVE AGX Pegasus’ platform.
