BYTON has entered into a partnership with Aurora. BYTON is an innovator of smart, premium electric vehicles, while Aurora is a self-driving technology company.
The partnership is aimed at incorporating Level 4 (L4) autonomous-driving vehicle capabilities into BYTON vehicles and enable it to become among the very first group of carmakers to bring L4 and eventually Level 5 (L5) cars to market. According to the Society of Automotive Engineers, L4 autonomous vehicles can drive independently in most environments, with the expectations that humans may need or choose to drive in some conditions.
In the next two years, the companies will jointly conduct pilot deployment of Aurora’s L4 autonomous driving systems on BYTON vehicles explore the use of Aurora’s self-driving system in BYTON’s series production vehicles.
BYTON made its global debut at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, this year. Aurora is also working with Hyundai and Volkswagen group on self-driving cars.
