在里昂、拉斯维加斯、新加坡、悉尼和巴黎的人们之后,伦敦人现在将发现由Navya(法国里昂郊区Villeurbanne的无人驾驶车辆专家。)生产的在城市里的电动穿梭巴士。

After the people of Lyon, Las Vegas, Singapore, Sydney and Paris, Londoners are now set to discover the electric city shuttle buses produced by Navya, the French specialist in driverless vehicles based in Villeurbanne, in the suburbs of Lyon.

      自2015年9月以来,已有60多辆自主研发的电动穿梭巴士在欧洲、美国和亚太地区投入使用。超过20万名乘客已经在城市和私人场所使用了这种创新的移动解决方案。这家来自里昂的初创公司已经在研发下一代出租车,此前该公司宣布,首款自动出租车于2018年第三季度上路。它最多可搭载6名乘客,时速可达90公里。在此之前,自动驾驶出租车将在巴黎街头进行测试,并将成为2018年1月9日至12日在拉斯维加斯举行的下一届CES展上的明星。参与该项目的米其林Acorus技术专家也将出席CES展的Navya展台。

Since September 2015, over 60 autonomous electric shuttle buses have been put into service in Europe, the United States and Asia/Pacific. Over 200,000 passengers have already used this type of innovative mobility solution, in cities and on private sites. The startup from Lyon is already working on the next generation, after announcing that the first robot-taxi, the Autonom Cab will be on the road by the third quarter 2018. It can take up to six passengers and drive at speeds of up to 90km/hour. Before then the Autonom Cab will be tested on the streets of Paris and will also be a star attraction at the next Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to be held in Las Vegas from 9th to 12th January 2018. Michelin experts in Acorus technology, who have worked on the project, will also be present on the Navya stand at the CES.

这种新型车辆遇到了一个反复出现的问题——如何克服各种障碍。他们如何在确保车辆整体性和乘客舒适度的同时,克服路面上的坑洼、垃圾或任何其他恶劣情况?

This type of new vehicle meets a recurrent problem – how to get over all kinds of obstacles. How do they get over potholes, over rubbish or any other kind of asperity on the roadway, whilst at the same time ensuring vehicle integrity and passenger comfort?

 

在我们开发自动驾驶汽车时遇到的许多困难中,必须考虑到道路状况有缺陷的情况。可能出现问题的地方有很多:糟糕的路面、瓦砾、复杂的天气条件。这需要我们没有的大量时间和开发工作!

Amongst the many difficulties we encounter in the development of autonomous vehicles, situations where the state of the road is defective have to be taken into account. There is an infinity of configurations where things might go wrong: poor road surface, debris, complicated weather conditions. This requires a lot of time and development effort that we do not have!

 这就是为什么Navya找到米其林,希望找到一个解决方案。米其林向他们推荐了Acoru灵活车轮技术,该技术已经工业化,是与世界专家Maxion Wheels合作开发的。

That’s why Navya approached Michelin, with the aim of finding a solution. Michelin suggested to them the Acorus flexible wheel technology, which is already industrialized and was developed in partnership with the world specialist, Maxion Wheels.

这是一个强大的解决方案,可以使自动驾驶汽车制造商加速进入市场。Acorus市场总监皮埃尔•爱德华•索雷尔(Pierre-Edouard Sorel)表示。

It’s a robust solution that enables autonomous vehicle manufacturers to accelerate their arrival on the market.

THE FLANGES FLEX TO PROTECT BOTH THE TIRE AND THE WHEEL

橡胶法兰弯曲以保护轮胎和车轮

 

这项创新技术的工作原理是将两个橡胶法兰安装在一个稍窄的轮毂上。当车辆撞到坑洞或其他障碍物时,法兰会弯曲以保护轮胎和铝轮毂,而不会让乘客感到任何冲击。其结果是,无论车的速度是多少,穿梭巴士都能保持在队列中,车轮和轮胎有更好的抗穿刺风险。这意味着轮胎和轮辋的使用寿命更长。

This innovative technology works using two rubber flanges mounted on a slightly narrower wheel body. When the vehicle hits a pothole or other obstacle the flanges flex to protect both the tire and the aluminum wheel body, without the passengers feeling any impact at all. The result is that the shuttle bus stays in line and wheels and tires have better resistance to puncture risk linked to pinching, whatever the vehicle’s speed. Meaning that both tires and rims last longer.
