DeepWay presents Xingtu, an electric heavy-duty truck with advanced self-driving technology. Equipped with 11 onboard cameras, an infrared detector, 5 millimeter-wave radars and a LIDAR sensor, the futuristic truck enables end-to-end autonomous driving and ultra-long range detection of more than 1 kilometer.
Xingtu is the first fully self-developed intelligent new energy heavy truck in China, precisely designed for operational scenarios, fully satisfying the underlying requirements of intelligent driving and giving full play to the advantages of new energy drive.
The truck is equipped with 11 onboard cameras, an infrared detector, 5 millimeter-wave radars and a LIDAR sensor which allows it to achieve end-to-end autonomous driving and ultra-long range detection of more than 1 kilometer. As for deep performance, tests showed a wind resistance coefficient as low at 0.35, which effectively reduces overall energy consumption.
at full load, the 450kWh battery pack can travel up to 300km on a single charge and charges in just one hour and can be swapped in just six minutes. The design team made sure the lightweight integrated battery and chassis design would reduce wind resistance. Pininfarina has also designed an interior and it’s unlike any other truck.
For starters, the Xingtu has a two-spoke steering wheel sitting directly in front of a large screen stretching the width of the dashboard. The truck also features small screens in the door handles, screens on the A-pillars, and a screen above the windshield. A second-row bench seat is also featured. The complex semi-autonomous all-electric truck design was completed by Pininfarina Shanghai.
