On April 24, 2019, Huawei has applied for a new patent for “Personal Driving Style Learning for Autonomous Driving” in the field of the smart car. According to the information, this patent was published on May 14 with announcement number CN112805198A in China.
The patent application describes the system and method to provide a driving style module for a motion planner of an autonomous vehicle, where the driving style module provides driving control parameters that are unique to an individual.
The driving style module may be modified to express the driving preferences of one or more occupants in the autonomous vehicle. The driving style module may include an occupant’s driving style preference profile and a machine learning model to adjust driving parameters over time based on occupant feedback.
In simple words, it can learn the human mode of driving and replicate it in real-time but it’s hard to say what kind of driving pattern it can learn or adapt in time.
On the other hand, last month, Huawei and BAIC’s new energy brand Jihu has jointly released the first electric smart car ARCFOX Alpha S series at Shanghai Auto Show 2021 with autonomous driving support.
In addition, this Alpha S series car offers HarmonyOS based car system, equipped with a Huawei Kirin Vehicle chip as well as three-level autonomous driving including the NCA mode, ICA+ mode, and ICA mode.
The NCA mode autopilot driving realizes point-to-point automatic driving through the preinstalled map in the car.
In order to provide more capabilities to autonomous or autopilot driving, Huawei is securing its new innovation in the form of patents for future use.

Huawei’s new flexible glass technology can improve its bending capability
On 27th July, Huawei introduced a new flexible glass patent technology for a more refined bending performance of flexible glass. This new technology aims to bring some extra convenience for users.
As per the information, Huawei published a new patent entitled “a processing method for improving the bending performance of flexible glass” with the announcement number CN113173708A.
The idea to bring this technology came a few months ago and the company applied to patent this technology in March this year. This new method can help to significantly increase the bending implementation of the flexible glass.
Flexible glass patent Technology:
The patent document describes the method for more refined bending performance of flexible glass. The working procedure is described below-
- The multilayer glued flexible glass passes under the scratch, cut, debond, and chemically strengthening procedure to reach the maximum level of bending capability.
- The multi-layer glass contains a foundation base that is placed at the bottom layer and a minimum of one iterated unit layer glued to the upper layer of the foundation base.
- Furthermore, the iterated unit layer combines a flexible glass located in the bottom layer and a substrate glued to the upper layer of the flexible glass
- At last, the repeating unit layers are glued and covered together
Last week Huawei published the video call sharing method patent, which allows sharing a video call with family, friends, colleagues, and other associates. This patent with the publication number CN11314148A was applied back on the 17th of January 2020.
Huawei inaugurated first Arm-based data center in Moscow, Russia
The TaiShan server utilizes the Kunpeng 920 processor developed by Huawei’s semiconductor subsidiary, HiSilicon. Also, this data center was built by Huawei’s Intelligent Computing Systems Department in Moscow, Russia.
Regarding this, Huawei said that the Russian scientific and academic community are using the facility to optimize open source solutions and supercomputing development. The construction of the new facility indicates the company’s aim to develop software products in Russia.
Kunpeng 920 Processor:
In 2019, Huawei launched the Kunpeng 920 processor along with the first ARM-based server CPU to deliver higher performance. This processor was based on ARMv8 architecture, the 7nm Kunpeng 920 comes with 64 cores and operates at 2.6GHz, with eight channels of DDR4 memory.
To be mentioned, Huawei has promised $1.5 billion to help develop Arm-native applications in an effort to help it overcome sanctions. Last month, the Chinese tech firm announced it was working with Sitronics to develop hardware that meets domestic localization requirements.
In addition, the Nikiya Solodun intelligent computing systems expert at Huawei Russia stated that:-
“The computing cluster will enable our partners and customers to test their software products, to join the construction of a new open ecosystem”
“Prior to the commissioning of this data center, we had to spend resources on the delivery of equipment and deployment of servers at the customer’s sites, now it is possible to provide both remote and local access to equipment with virtually no time delays.”
Huawei said however the ARM processor are dominant in mobile technology but it can be a replacement to the x86 architecture in the data centers. On the other hand, Ampere, Fujitsu, and Microsoft are also preparing to launch ARM CPUs for the server market.
Huawei Russia’s Intelligent Computing System Department Director- Liu Yu said:
“High-performance Arm cores have proven themselves well not only in tasks with numerous parallel computing, such as big data, virtualization systems, databases, storage systems, but also other tasks.
The tests carried out have shown that in a number of scenarios Arm servers can already compete fully with solutions based on the x86 architecture,” said Liu Yu.
Furthermore, Arm can be acquired by US cooperation Nvidia if regulators will let it, which could also make this matter more complicated.

Huawei smart car tech can measure water accumulation to avoid incidents
On the 23rd of July 2021, Huawei released a new patent for determining the depth of inert water, which was applied by the company on the 3rd of March this year. This new patent will be proved another significant step towards the company’s strategy of making more advanced smart vehicles.
This new patent is entitled the “method and device for determining the depth of inert water” has the publication number CN113168535A. It is designed to identify the depth of the water accumulation area to avoid any possible mishappening.
Although, the automotive industry has developed many advanced technologies, which brings extra convivence for the users. But, when it comes to crossing through water accumulated areas, only the driver’s knowledge is considered to be safe.
To reduce any vulnerability in the water accumulated area, Huawei introduced this new technology. As per the patent description, this method will follow the below-mentioned procedure to gain the desired result-
- First, capture the images of the present inert water road
- Then, analyzes the image to extract valuable information
- Now, obtain the spatial location of the edge of the inert water
- Afterward, obtain the road slope angle
- Thereafter, determines the inert water and road position corresponding to the maximum water depth of the area using the recommended algorithms
Hence, the spatial location, road slope angle, and position, maximum water depth, and maximum inert water depth are determined.
The Huawei inert water patent method will specifically provide help for the autonomous driving system and contributes to more enhanced in-vehicle capabilities. Furthermore, it’ll cover the internet of vehicles that includes-
- V2X: vehicle outreach
- LTE-V: long-term evolution of vehicle communication technology
- V2V: Vehicle-Vehicle
