The platform offers a full suite of products including Robotaxi, Mini Robobus, Robovan, and Robo Street Sweeper to provide multiple services including online carpooling, on-demand transportation, city logistics, and smart environmental services.

Technology

WeRide ONE

WeRide has developed WeRide ONE, a universal self-driving solution that supports self-driving in different scenarios and weather conditions on open urban roads, including CBDs, highways, urban villages, tunnels, snowy and rainy weather conditions. It is independent of the underlying hardware configuration or ODDs (Operational Design Domains). Such a general solution provides a much higher level of scalability when deploying to large areas. WeRide ONE has been extensively verified in China and the United States. WeRide’s autonomous mileage has reached over 11,000,000 kilometers (as of May 2022).

WeRide 4.0 Sensor Suite

Thanks to highly integrated sensors, WeRide Sensor Suite 4.0

achieves a significant reduction in size compared to its predecessor. The product is one-sixth the size of the last generation and occupies less than 0.4 square meters of roof area, allowing passengers to take advantage of the vehicle’s sunroof. Suite 4.0 has a net weight of 13 kilograms, only 20% of the weight of the previous model and is the lightest sensor suite in the industry.
