GWM India R&D center was established in Bengaluru in 2016 with a team of 120+ experts to focus on research involving Autonomous Driving System, Hybrid Control Unit, Vehicle Control Unit and Battery Management System.
Innovation at the India R&D Centre
AUTONOMOUS DRIVING SYSTEM (ADS)
GWM is developing innovative solutions for autonomous driving system (ADS) which require silico like sensors, computing stack, software with a multitude of complex functions such as perception, localization & mapping, sensor fusion, routing, behaviour planning, motion planning, path planning, controls, simulation, data analytics, verification, validation, systems and functional safety.
HYBRID CONTROL UNIT (HCU)
HCU is the central controller of a hybrid vehicle and the master of the CAN-bus based vehicle control network. It determines the overall driving behaviour of the vehicle. GWM research team develops the logic for the controller to manage the total system energy (engine + batteries) and coordinate the power output from the hybrid powertrain along with other essential vehicle functions.
VEHICLE CONTROL UNIT (VCU)
Vehicle electrification and new powertrain systems are driving the introduction of Vehicle Control Units (VCU) that act as domain controller for electric vehicles.
GWM Research team is involved in requirement analysis, core programming and logic design, basic software modules Unit Testing and Integration Testing.
BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BMS)
The importance of Battery Pack energy storage in all industries has clearly made the BMS as one of the key differentiating factors for success. Maximum performance, safe operation and optimal lifespan under diverse environmental conditions is what the GWM Research team works toward.
