PANZHIHUA China--10 Jun--PRNewswire/InfoQuest
  • Fleet of Autonomous Road Rollers Completes the The World's First Asphalt Road Construction - Panda Expressway between Sichuan and Yunnan Province.

XCMG (SHE: 000425), the leading Chinese construction machinery manufacturer, revealed its autonomous Road Roller today following successful tests held at the end of May. XCMG jointly developed the autonomous road roller with the Sichuan Railway Investment Group and Tsinghua University. The autonomous Road Roller made its debut along the Panda Expressway, which is currently under construction between Panzhihua, Sichuan Province and Dali, Yunnan Province.

"Over 81% of Panda Expressway consists of bridges and tunnels, making it one of China's key smart transportation infrastructure projects," says Cui Jisheng, General Manager of XCMG Road Machinery. "Enhancing road quality and safety through efficient construction and reduced cost were key priorities in our collaboration to develop an autonomous road roller. Our success here shows great promise for the technology's industrialization, and will accelerate the development of smart transport infrastructure."

Before setting out and before the test began, a remote monitoring data center first identified the optimal route and process. Instructions were then transmitted to the onboard control system, enabling the road roller to operate autonomously under complex conditions, with a precision of 2-3cm.

The self-driving road roller is equipped with various safety measures and a real-time monitoring system which can sound warnings, conduct an emergency stop, enter and exit sites automatically and avoid obstacles.

In 2018, XCMG signed a strategic agreement with the Sichuan Railway Investment Group and Tsinghua University to deepen their cooperation in the field of autonomous road construction. Since then, the three parties have applied for nine domestic patents, namely three for inventions and six for utility models and technology.

With this achievement, the partnership will continue, focusing on the R&D and implementation of smart transportation development strategies and the development of mobile 5G communications base stations.
