Automatic driving technology may take the lead in Logistics
With the prominent performance of auto-driving distribution vehicles and self-driving sanitation vehicles, the technology of autopilot is expected to make breakthroughs in low-speed scenarios and logistics distribution fields.
According to statistics, the total financing amount of Q1 global auto-driving enterprises in 2020 exceeded 3.5 billion US dollars, an increase of more than 34% compared to 2019.
In many cases, the financing amount has exceeded 100 million US dollars. Among which, one startup is focusing on auto-driving trucks.
It is of great significance to be able to complete such large financing. This means that as a start-up, enterprises can get enough financial support in R & D, commercial, publicity, etc.,
In the auto driving industry, with the continuous progress of technological innovation, the improvement of laws and regulations, and the acceleration of infrastructure construction, the difficulty is how to realize commercial business faster. In fact, many major players have been trying to promote commercialization. Taxi passenger transport scenarios and truck freight scenes are two popular areas.
As far as we know, the transportation work is complex and dangerous in restricted areas such as mine and logistics park, which is an ideal place for the application of automatic driving technology. With the expansion of the digital economy such as e-commerce, the development of the logistics industry is changing day by day. The demand for logistics automation and intelligence is constantly increasing, and automatic driving technology will help.
At present, whether it is a start-up enterprise, or a traditional vehicle manufacturer and technical service provider, they are vigorously deploying automatic driving trucks, which has become the mainstream trend of the industry. Meanwhile, the cooperation is becoming more and more in-depth, which not only reduces the R & D cost but also improves the work efficiency.
Therefore, for the auto driving truck enterprises, in order to be aware of the potential market size of intelligent logistics, we must pay attention to every detail. Besides trunk logistics, the last kilometer logistics has been widely popular recently, as the human cost reduction is attractive, but the technical requirements are relatively high.
Under the special crisis of 2020, “ Unmanned distribution “ becomes a “hot cake”, which also brings new opportunities for low-speed automatic driving scenarios. Previously, a Chinese logistics company launched a full-time L4 automatic driving unmanned delivery vehicle, which can automatically inform the recipient through SMS, and wait for the customer to pick up the package.
Besides food delivery and express delivery, some autonomous vehicles are also used in disinfection, patrol, sanitation, and cleaning. Moreover, the auto-driving distribution vehicle not only started to get on the road rapidly in China but also got favor in other countries such as the United States.
It is said the epidemic is a test for society and the economy. The technology of automatic driving has shown great application advantages and values in the service of specific scenarios. It is believed that with the performance of auto-driving distribution vehicles and self-driving sanitation vehicles, the technology of autopilot is expected to make breakthroughs in low-speed scenarios and logistics distribution fields, and gain the trust of the market and consumers.

Data, Algorithms, and Processing are Three indispensable Elements of AI.
Data is the starting point.
It makes sense for AI to start with data and take advantage of learning itself. In scalable data and the high-speed era, it is very convenient to use data to train artificial intelligence.
Companies that have a long history of business intelligence conduct lots of works around data. It’s the same for artificial intelligence.
The original data is generally acquired through data collection, and the subsequent data cleaning and data annotation are equivalent to processing the data, and then transferred to the artificial intelligence algorithm and model for invocation.
If the data used in artificial intelligence training is not sufficiently diverse and unbiased, problems such as artificial “AI bias” may arise.
Bytebridge, a human-powered data labeling platform, provides high-quality services to collect and annotate different types of data such as text, image, audio, and video to accelerate the development of the machine learning industry.
- Dealing with complex tasks, the task is automatically transformed into tiny components to minimize human errors
- The real-time QA and QC are integrated into the labeling workflow as the consensus mechanism is introduced to ensure accuracy
- Consensus — Assign the same task to several workers, and the correct answer is the one that comes back from the majority output
- All work results are completely screened and inspected by machines and the human workforce
We can provide personalized annotation tools and services according to customer requirements.
A collaboration of the human-work force and AI algorithms ensure a 50% lower price compared to the conventional market.
Common applications in automatic driving include Point annotation, line annotation, boxing annotation, 3D Point cloud annotation, scene semantic segmentation, and POI (Point of Interest) annotation.
If you need data labeling and collection services, please have a look at bytebridge.io, the clear pricing is available.
