The deputy director of the Ministry of Science and Technology disclosed for the first time that hydrogen fuel and autonomous driving technology will become the key projects of the 13th Five-Year Plan.

- Sep 28, 2018-

From August 31st to September 2nd, the 2018 China Automotive Industry Development (TEDA) International Forum was held in Tianjin.

The Deputy Director of the Department of High-Tech Development and Industrialization of the Ministry of Science and Technology continued to give a keynote speech at the forum. During the 13th and 14th, the Ministry of Science and Technology will focus on two major areas. The first is the on-board hydrogen fuel technology. R&D and enhancement of power battery technology. Second, focus on system capacity building in areas such as autonomous driving and intelligent transportation.

Continued to say that the late 13th and 14th May may be mainly focused on two aspects. On the one hand, it focuses on the key core technologies of hydrogen fuel cells for vehicles, and the research and development of core technologies such as hydrogen production, hydrogen storage and hydrogenation, and continues to strengthen. Advanced power battery technology, the next generation of power electronic device technology. The second aspect is to conduct in-depth research on the key core technologies of autonomous driving and intelligent identification, and carry out major tasks such as autonomous unmanned vehicles, intelligent technology, multi-mobile group intelligent collaborative control, unmanned vehicle support platform, and based on demonstration applications. Verify that the technology is implemented.

It is worth noting that, as mentioned in advance, the development of China's new energy vehicles is facing many challenges. For example, the lack of original breakthroughs in the field of power batteries, the level of automatic driving technology is in the state of running, including the core components such as laser radar and sensors. The international giants still have a clear gap. In addition, there are still problems in the domestic new energy industry dispersion and uneven technical levels.


“Although our new energy production and sales volume is leading the world, more than 600,000 sales are scattered among 200 companies, and the scale effect is not high, and the premium capacity is not enough.”


Continued to say that the Ministry of Science and Technology has stepped up its efforts in basic frontier technology and put forward a nine-character policy: complementing shortcomings, building advantages, and strengthening capabilities.
