Electric Bus Maker Yutong Launches Integrated Solution For EVs

Chinese electric bus manufacturer Yutong Bus has launched an integrated control technology platform for new energy commercial vehicles. The first-ever software- and hardware-integrated EV-specific platform for the industry could potentially revolutionize the new commercial energy vehicle sector.

The platform has been named ‘YEA.’ With this platform, Yutong claims to integrate software and hardware seamlessly. It can ensure significant enhancement of product safety, reliability, and efficiency. The platform delivers super-integration, scalability, and self-evolution, therefore meeting full-scenario requirements of different commercial vehicle segments, Yutong said. 

The platform’s two core components—C-architecture and YOS—form the technical basis of YEA. The C-architecture serves as the intelligent “brain” of the commercial vehicle. It comprises a “central computing unit, multi-in-one controller, intelligent cabin domain controller, and advanced driving assistance domain controller.” 

YOS is the name of the commercial vehicle operating system, a self-developed OS with a C-architecture. The combination of these two core components facilitates functional fusion and redistribution, resulting in a 200% increase in computing power and a 100% improvement in control efficiency.

“YEA ensures the complete decoupling of software and hardware while managing all software and hardware involved through a unified management system. This facilitates shorter software delivery cycles while ensuring intelligent driving and riding experiences as well as operational safety,” the firm said in a statement.

YEA also leverages Yutong’s extensive data support to address key pain points in the operation of new energy vehicles, including insufficient range, low operating efficiency, power inadequacy, poor safety, low attendance rate, and poor operational stability, while providing solutions for a vehicle’s full lifecycle at a lower cost than those seen for conventional vehicles.

In addition to the launch of YEA, Yutong’s in latest event also showed a complete lineup of 15 new energy products, including buses, trucks, and special vehicles. Focused on travel, logistics, and operations scenarios, Yutong has developed and formulated solutions for nine segments, including integrated urban and rural public transportation.
