Yutong unveils global release of YEA platform to redefine green PT

In China last week, Yutong staged a massive event releasing its new YEA platform in a bid to revolutionise global green public transport

In China, leading global electric bus manufacturer Yutong Bus has officially launched YEA, an integrated control technology platform for new energy commercial vehicles.

At the major release event in China, Yutong says this first-ever software and hardware-integrated EV-specific platform for the industry has the potential to revolutionize China’s new energy commercial vehicle sector.

The event, the Global Release Conference for Yutong Commercial Vehicle Technology Brand, was held with the theme of “Drive Your Value”, and drew more than 500 customer representatives from 25 countries and regions.

Together, the attendees explored the future development direction for new energy commercial vehicles and jointly advocated the “Team Zero”.

Busworld Foundation managing director Jan Deman delivered the event’s keynote speech.

In addition to the launch of YEA, the event showcased Yutong’s complete line-up 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.

With YEA, Yutong achieves seamless integration of software and hardware, thereby significantly enhancing product safety, reliability and efficiency. The platform delivers super-integration, scalability and self-evolution, therefore meeting full-scenario requirements of different commercial vehicle segments.

 

There are two core components—C-architecture and YOS—that 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 C-architecture. Yutong says the combination of these two core components facilitates functional fusion and redistribution, resulting in a 200 per cent increase in computing power and a 100 per cent improvement in control efficiency.

Yutong says 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.

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.
