During the 13th China Automotive Blue Book Forum, Wang Jun, President of Huawei Smart Car Solutions BU, gave a speech. Wang said that the Huawei team is working on autonomous driving solutions and aimed to make a passenger car that’s truly driverless by 2025.

Wang also mentioned that the current state of the car ahead of 2025 is still unmodified and there’s not so much scope for extensions. Therefore, the first question and priority is the scope for modification and whether we use a car as a smart space.

“Autonomous driving has a boundary and it could disruptive when it’s completed. But what it could hold in the future, will it be the power  or what kind of change it could bring in terms of the new cockpit.” said Wang

Adding to this, Wang described that the company’s goal is to make a smart space inside the car that’s efficient for various kinds of applications to help in the making of a real smart car and autonomous driving experience.

Huawei’s smart car business chief further mentioned that it’s important to make an application ecosystem for smart cars and to develop a new version of the cockpit system.
