Visteon to help GAC design self-driving vehicles
Automotive News China | 2018/1/23

LAS VEGAS -- Visteon Corp. has signed an agreement to help Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. develop self-driving vehicles.

The state-owned automaker will use Visteoní»s DriveCore platform, a software package designed to identify road objects and navigate the vehicle safely.

Initially, the companies will develop technology for Level 3 autonomous vehicles that can self-steer, brake and accelerate on the highway.

Visteon unveiled DriveCore this month at CES in Las Vegas. The software package is to be production-ready in 2020.

In addition, the companies will í░explore potential commercial engagementsí▒ that use Visteoní»s instrument clusters, head-up displays and domain controllers.

GAC, headquartered in the south China city of Guangzhou, sold 508,000 vehicles last year, up 37 percent year on year.

Visteon, of suburban Detroit, ranks No. 67 on the Automotive News list of the top 100 global suppliers with worldwide parts sales to automakers of $3.16 billion (19.9 billion yuan) in 2016.
