Bumper news: EHang continues its media onslaught

By Chris Stonor

It has been another bumper news week for Ehang who continues to assault the media with exciting developments. For example, on Monday the company tweeted out that it was “going Genghis Khan” as, for the first time, the 216 AAV is conducting trial flights in Inner Mongolia. The tweet ended, “We look forward to meeting you in your city in the future!”

A few days later, EHang announced that its much-rumoured collaboration with the Spanish National Police has taken a further positive step where the company is exhibiting its AAV police craft at the World ATM Congress, Madrid, next week. EHang is showing-off this latest breakthrough at the Canary Islands Government booth 895 between October 26thand 28th. If you want to attend, you must register by tomorrow.


Then, this morning EHang released a press release headed: EHang and Shenzhen Expressway to Jointly Develop Smart City Transportation Network announcing the company has reached “a strategic partnership with Shenzhen Expressway Operation and Development Company Limited” based on “the deployment of the Shenzhen Expressway UAV command-and-control systems.”

The release goes on, “The two parties will further broaden use cases of EHang AAVs for roads inspection, emergency rescue, materials transportation among others. In addition, as an important partner of EHang 100 Air Mobility Routes Initiative, Shenzhen Expressway will join efforts with EHang to explore the innovative integration of AAV air mobility and expressway networks in smart city transportation.”

The press release explains that the partners “have built the first AAV command-and-control platform, equipped with various types of AAVs and intelligent sensor devices for expressway networks management, emergency rescue and safe operations.”

Shenzhen Expressway is primarily engaged in the investment, construction, operation and management of toll highways and roads. The company commented, “We have been working with EHang to explore the AAV applications for two years, which laid a solid technological foundation. Today I am very pleased to demonstrate the industry-leading smart transportation project.”

Edward Xu, CSO of EHang, added, “Our in-depth partnership with Shenzhen Expressway is another major strategic deployment to deepen the urban air mobility industry in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.”

He continued, “It is also another milestone for EHang 100 Air Mobility Routes Initiative. We hope to work with Shenzhen Expressway to upgrade the transportation in Shenzhen for intelligent urban mobility networks.”
