Chinese automaker XPeng Motors said today its public beta version of the Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP) assisted driving feature has reached 514,973 kilometers of user mileage14 days after its launch.
XPeng said this data covers the period from 20:00 on January 26 to 24:00 on February 9, during which time users accumulated 5,952 hours of NGP use.
NGP is an automatic navigation-assisted driving from point A to point B based on a user-set navigation route and is only available on some XPeng P7 models equipped with the XPILOT 3.0 system.
The feature allows the vehicle to automatically change lanes, automatically overtake, make speed limit adjustments and automatically get on and off ramps on the highway.
However, XPeng says the feature is assisted driving, not anautopilot, and can help drivers complete their journeys more easily and safely, and cannot completely replace human drivers.
Users need to scan the code through XPeng APP to watch the NGP safety operation video and pass the safety test before starting the NGP. Users also need to operate as required when using it, otherwise NGP cannot be activated.
After NGP is turned on, the radar perception + vision perception, positioning, sensor fusion, motion control and motion planning are transmitted to the large center control screen in the vehicle. When the vehicle is running, the large center control screen displays information such as environment simulation, speed limit indication and construction reminder.
NGP of XPeng P7 is equipped with high precision map of Gaode. During high-speed driving, NGP can achieve better performance on Chinese road scenes such as traffic cone identification and avoidance, large truck avoidance, night overtaking reminder, fault vehicle avoidance, closefollowing on congested roads, highways and some city main roads.
