XPeng, a Chinese smart electric vehicle maker, has unveiled the beta version of its navigation guided pilot (NGP) highway autonomous driving solution in Guangzhou.

The company said that its NGP highway navigation solution has been designed to perform automatic navigation assisted driving from point A to B, based on the navigation route set by the driver.

XPeng intends to launch the NGP function as a key part of its XPILOT 3.0 autonomous driving package for its Chinese customers over the next few weeks.

In a statement, the company said: “NGP solution has been specifically created and tailored for China’s complex driving environment.

“Its full-scenario high-definition positioning capability solves HD- ap positioning challenges for China’s highly complex road conditions, including areas with no GPS signals.

“It can identify and avoid traffic cones, warn of difficult situations such as construction sites or road toll entrances, follow on automatically in traffic jams, avoid breakdown vehicles, change lanes to avoid emergencies, avoid large trucks, and warn drivers of when to resume manual control in dangerous situations such as adverse weather or road accidents.”

The NGP highway solution will be launched through an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade to XPeng customers in China before the Chinese New Year in February.

Once launched, NGP, which covers a wider range of driving scenarios and situations, will be implemented on the Premium version of the XPeng P7 with the XPILOT 3.0 system.

XPeng said that it’s XPeng P7 is the only mass produced car in the country with a 360° dual camera and radar fusion perception system for added safety.
