As Tomb Sweeping Day was approaching in China, a Li L9 owner rode the car to the cemetery to worship his ancestors and noticed that the UI screen showed a busy crowd of people and even pedestrians on bicycles when there was no real human around. Known as Qingming Jie (清明节) in China, Tomb Sweeping Day is a Traditional Chinese holiday when Chinese families commemorate and pay respects to their ancestors.
Li L9’s ADAS system is named AD-Max and utilizes multiple sensors to realize its ADAS features. Firstly, the AD-Max system is using two Nvidia Orin-X GPUs to deliver 508TOPs of processing power.
Secondly, it is equipped with six 8MP cameras & five 2MP cameras for object detection. For redundancy in conditions with impaired visions, the Li L9 will be able to rely on its Hesai 128-line hybrid lidar. Other sensors include one forward millimeter-wave radar and twelve ultrasonic sensors to realize 360-degree detection of both vehicle surroundings and distant objects.
Li Auto’s response to this incident was “This is not a supernatural event, but is caused by the limitations of sensor recognition capabilities on the market.” Do you think it is a sensor hardware or a software algorithm limitation?
In fact, this is not the first time that this situation has occurred on Li Auto vehicles. At the beginning of this year, a Li Auto car owner shared a situation where people were running in front of the car while the “souls” were chasing behind. At that time, Li Auto admitted that it was a bug in its perception algorithm and probable that the rearview camera would be disturbed by water droplets in a rainy night environment. Furthermore, Li Auto also claimed that this problem only affects the perception of the environment display and not the ADAS functions.
Self-driving technology has become a hot trend in recent years. Self-driving car sensors have been known to detect false positives, misinterpreting objects, or the non-existence of objects. Would you dare to fully trust the ADAS system in your car?
Would you rather trust your lying eyes……..? lol
the ghostbusters have found their new car now
