– For some time we have been talking about the passage di Huawei from the telecommunications market to the electric car market. More than anything else indiscretions, until when at the ‘IAA Mobility 2021’ in Munich has not presented its solution for the smart car.
“The automotive industry is now at a critical point in its transformation towards connected, autonomous, shared and electric mobility. Technologies are expected to play an increasingly important role in this process, which is why they are so well received. from the industry, “he said Tang Ming, Vice President of Huawei Intelligent Automotive for Europe. “Relying on our proven experience and expertise developed over more than 30 years in the ICT field, Huawei has launched intelligent automotive components and solutions, with the aim of supporting European manufacturers in building future.proof intelligent vehicles.“
The ‘full.stack’ system
But what is Huawei’s ‘full.stack’ autonomous driving solution? The goal is to allow city drivers to easily enable an assisted navigation mode in any scenario and in any weather and traffic conditions: from moving from one parking lot to another to driving in adverse weather conditions.
Huawei’s solution is based on algorithms, a data center and sensors with the aim of achieving completely autonomous driving through long.term investments that foster the development of intelligent and connected vehicles.
One of the objectives is to promote the HarmonyOS operating system – the one that the Chinese company had to develop in a hurry to cope with the impossibility of using Google services – for the automotive sector. Not surprisingly, it is clear from a note from the company: “If we could use only one operating system for each device, be it an appliance, a socket or a lamp, we would be able to eliminate the current limitations that characterize the user experience. “. A sign that Huawei is preparing to emulate Xiaomi’s strategy (the smartphone as the hub of many products: from the blender to the scooter) which, not surprisingly, has recently announced its entry into the electric car sector.
In Huawei’s intelligent cockpit, the company claims, you can easily use different devices through the apps built into your car– For example, using a music or video app, drivers can instantly transform the cabin into a mobile office, private cinema or KTV box with stereo, screen and cameras. They will also be able to remotely control home appliances directly from the car. For example, set the air conditioning system to an optimal temperature before arriving home.
But beyond what looks like simple gadgets, the intention is to offer a superior visual experience in vehicles. Huawei’s ‘AR.HUD’ system offers a viewing angle that can reach 13×5 degrees, thus covering multiple lanes at the same time. Therefore, while driving, ‘AR.HUD’ transforms a normal windshield into a 70.inch HD screen to display all necessary driving information. This way drivers can stay informed, for example by learning key information about instruments or navigation, all without ever taking their eyes off the road.
This system also makes it possible to improve the attention and safety of drivers– When driving in inclement weather, ‘AR.HUD’ uses sensors and augmented reality to display information and important warnings about pedestrians, vehicles and obstacles that may otherwise be difficult to notice with the naked eye.
