Autoliv to supply radar for Geely's self-driving cars
Automotive News China | 2017/10/6

STOCKHOLM -- Autoliv Inc. has been awarded a contract to supply radars to Zhejiang Geely Holding Group for the Chinese automaker¡¯s self-driving vehicles.

Geely vehicles will use radar and cameras -- also to be supplied by Autoliv -- to detect obstacles in the road.

The deal will allow Geely to tap the r&d resources of Autoliv and Volvo Car Corp., which formed a joint venture last year to develop software for self-driving vehicles.

That venture, dubbed Zenuity, will introduce software for collision avoidance systems in 2019, and programs for autonomous vehicles in 2021. 

Autoliv did not indicate whether Zenuity will work with Geely. But Zenuity could give Geely access to key technologies. Nvidia -- a leading U.S. chipmaker -- and Swedish telecommunications giant Ericsson are working with Zenuity.

And Volvo -- which has shared platforms with Geely -- has announced plans to test 100 autonomous vehicles in China. 

Geely, which is headquartered in the east China city of Hangzhou, acquired Volvo from Ford Motor Co. in 2010.

In the first eight months of 2017, Geely¡¯s sales jumped 88 percent from a year earlier to 718,236 vehicles.
