In the race to build autonomous trucks, Daimler Trucks’ Torc Robotics is partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its cloud services.

Daimler Trucks bought a majority stake in Torc Robotics in 2019 with the express purpose of developing Level 4 autonomous commercial vehicles. Many manufacturers in the transportation sector are betting big on autonomous technology and the data requirements are leading them to partner with big tech companies.

Volkswagen, for example, recently announced that it was partnering with Microsoft for cloud services in its pursuit of autonomous vehicles. That’s because the development process generates petabytes (or, a million gigabytes) of data.

“We believe this relationship between Torc and AWS brings together two very strong teams and is another milestone on our road to Level 4 trucks,” said Dr. Peter Vaughan Schmidt, Head of Daimler Trucks’ Autonomous Technology Group. “Daimler Trucks’ goal is to enable safe deployment of self-driving trucks and shape the future of the trucking and logistics industry at large.”

With raw data coming in from test vehicles’ many sensors, such as lidar, radar, and cameras, it’s easy to see how the information can quickly lead to an overload. And as technology improves and resolution increases, the flow of information only becomes more of a deluge.

“Our next-generation fleet of test trucks will help us rapidly grow our capabilities and accelerate the commercialization of Level 4 self-driving trucks,” said Michael Fleming, Torc CEO. “Our ability to handle the data involved must be able to keep up – whether it’s for transfer, storage, or scaling our simulation capability.”

Level 4 autonomy refers to vehicles that can fully drive themselves, but in which a driver can take control. That differentiates it from a level 5 autonomous vehicle in which there is are no controls for human drivers.

Daimler Trucks is the temporary name for the commercial vehicle manufacturer that, until this year, was a part of the Daimler empire. The group carved the commercial vehicle unit out from its passenger vehicle brand, Mercedes.

When it purchased Torc, Daimler said that what it learned in the development of these autonomous trucks would make its way into passenger cars. With an overlap in shareholders, it’s not unreasonable to assume that a flow of information could continue, though we’ll likely learn more when Daimler holds an extra-ordinary shareholder meeting in the third quarter.


Toyota GR YARIS預計今年第三季以限量方式導入台灣市場

和泰汽車在今(18)日發表的市場展望與和泰集團營運重點中提到,今年度將導入性能迷引頸期盼的暴力小鴨Toyota GR YARIS與GR86,小改款CAMRY與SIENNA將正式發表公布售價;LEXUS方面因為武漢肺炎疫情影響,要導入哪些新車尚未塵埃落定,目前暫時以去年發表的兩款旗艦車來供應市場,分別是小改款的旗艦房車LS,與台灣爭取到三台配額的旗艦GT跑車 LC Limited Edition。

今年第一季將有大改款Camry;第二季則為大改款Sienna正式發表

今年將導入台灣的性能車還真不少呢!繼福特六和推出Focus st mk4,新世代Subaru BRZ在港口被拍到、Volkswagen Golf mk8確定導入GTI,以及每到新年展望時刻都會被台灣本田提起,但外匯車已經開賣的type-r。最近和泰又宣布確定在今年導入暴力小鴨GR YARIS,時間預計在今年第三季;另一款GR 86可能還要再等等,得先等日本發表後才會導入台灣。不過和泰都預計在今年第四季導入台灣了,想必離發表時間不遠了。

今年第三季與第四季預計會導入Toyota GR YARIS與GR 86

除了性能車款外,先前於日本發表的小改款CAMRY也將在今年推出;先前和泰搶先引進的大改款Sienna,以限量早鳥優惠價下殺210萬起開始預售,在今年也將舉辦正式發表會;預計今(2021)年底將推出國產發財車Town ace,會提供有廂車版與貨車版兩車款來滿足市場需求,和泰才剛整合yoxi與iRent推出更完整的車輛共享服務,這次又要殺進小型商用車市場,真的是不給其他車商活路了嘛?商用車方面,HINO今年將推出全新的200系3.49噸小商車,以及符合六期法規500系及700系大型商用車。

LEXUS方面則因為武漢肺炎疫情關係,今年導入哪些新車還尚未明朗。大家最期待的大改款NX車型可能會因為疫情關係而延後到明年才導入台灣市場,NX大改款外界預測是今年九月發表,但全球車用晶片大缺貨加上武漢肺炎疫情影響,發表後到正式生產出貨要等多久現在還很難說。

在銷售目標方面,2021年和泰汽車小型車販賣目標設定為15.4萬台,為在台銷售史上最高紀錄,其中TOYOTA 13.3萬台,LEXUS 2.1萬台,市佔率將上看35%,另商用車目標為9,350台,挑戰販賣歷史新高。

此外,和泰集團旗下的關係企業今年將設下挑戰性營運目標,和潤企業將鞏固醫療設備分期領先地位及擴大重車滲透率,並布局綠能產業貫徹ESG策略;和泰產險將立足百億,提高人均產能並提供創新多元的客戶服務;和運租車將推出多元衍生性車隊服務,並整合中古車營運平台;和雲行動服務將升級APP並強化會員經營及提供整合移動服務;車美仕將持續提供更多樣化的商品解決方案,發展車聯網服務及擴展海外市場;和泰聯網及和泰移動推出的yoxi乘車派遣服務,將拓展至桃園、高雄及台中,並推出多元計程車派遣與專車服務。

Lexus日前於美國官網釋出全新車型預告,內容沒有提及任何詳細資訊和上市日期,僅放了一張疑似是碳纖維並且擁有F Sport徽飾的面板,並表示「F Sport高性能車型的時代即將到來」。

對Lexus來說許多運動款的車型除了擁有更具侵略性的造型,還會搭配「F Sport」的標誌,像是IS、RC、RX、UX、NX、ES和LS均提供F Sport套件。雖然LX尚未擁有F Sport版本,不過外媒認為這款釋出的預告並不是休旅車型的F Sport,透過Lexus發布的照片來看,雖然只有一部份的面板,但是線條與RC F或已停產的GS F搭載的2UR-GSE 5.0升V8自然進氣引擎飾蓋相仿。

檢視Lexus品牌旗下車型可以發現LC 500是唯一配備V8且不提供F Sport套件的現有型號,但以轎跑車的生命週期來說,現在才引入似乎有點太晚;而至於LS車型也可能提供V8引擎,不過現在似乎不是一個好時機。

▲LC車型(上圖)與LS車型(下圖)。

根據以上的結論,加上許多外媒報導表示Lexus去年向美國專利商標局(USPTO)申請了IS 500的商標,因此外界也認為很有可能是 IS 500 F Sport即將問世,不過這一切目前也都只是猜測而已,實際車款為何?還是要等待之後幾天Lexus釋出更多詳細信息。

▲外界猜測此次釋出的新車預告很可能是IS 500 F Sport。
