Huawei

The aim of Huawei dominating the automotive industry from behind the curtains, indirectly lead to growing its Lidar market. This Chinese tech giant accounts for 3% of the global lidar market, say a lidar adoption report of Yole Developpement.

Light Detection and Ranging is the abbreviation for Lidars which are the most important components when it’s come to self-driving cars. They are responsible for remote sensing methods using lasers, scanners, and GPS receivers. In other words, it fulfills the needs of a rapid, accurate, and complete comprehension system in a driverless vehicle.

Coming back to the Lidar adoption report, the major lidar companies’ revenue has declined in 2020 with the emersion of other small firms. As a smartphone-focused company, Huawei’s performance in the lidar market catches the attention of researchers.  Let’s check the main highlight of the report. 

  • Valeo is the biggest supplier accounting for 28% share
  • RoboSense acquired 10% of the market
  • The third position has been shared between Luminar, Livox, Denso, Continental, Cepeton, and one more with 7% shares each
  • Ibeo and Innoviz are in the fourth position with 4% shares 
  • Being a non-focused Lidar company, Huawei is on fifth with 3% alongside Hesai and Velodyne

Huawei’s Lidar Technolgy:

Huawei has been recognized in the automotive industry for its smart car solution and autonomous technology. The HBT model launched in the 2021 Shangaing Auto show witness company’s three types of lidar technology.

In particular, it includes a 96-line medium and long-range, a 6 millimeter-wave, and 13 ultrasonic radars alongside 9 cameras, and Huawei chips with 352 Tops of computing power. Moving ahead, the company is working on Level 4 autonomous vehicle technology incorporation with GAC Group and the car-hailing service organization Didi in Mainland.

Future Scope of Lidar Market:

A senior researcher of Yole Developpement has forecasted that by 2021 LiDAR market will reach US$5.7 billion to US$ 1.8 billion. The market is growing bigger day by day, traditional mechanical scanning represents 69% in today’s market. However, the MEMS (micro-electromechanical system) and Flash LiDAR are also making their way into automotive but still take more time as the compositions is really small.

Huawei custom port solutions

Huawei Connect 2022 event, held in Bangkok has come to an end. But, the new techniques and solutions that the company has introduced in this event will keep working for the benefit of consumers. And one of these solutions is the Huawei Custom-Port.

According to the official statements, Huawei has offered a huge bundle of custom and port solutions to build a world-class trade infrastructure. Consequently, these solutions will elevate the digital transformation growth in Asia Pacific regions.

The Senior Vice President of Huawei Customs and Port Team – Robin Lu defines the purpose of these solutions:

At HUAWEI CONNECT this year, we are sharing our leading ICT products and successful industry scenario-based solutions in the hope of helping customs and port infrastructure in the Asia Pacific achieve modernization and smart development. In doing so, we can improve port operational efficiency and cross-border trade facilitation.

Solutions will work as a significant part!

Lu also describes that the following solutions will work as the brain, arms, legs, and eyes of the ports:

Smart Container Planning (Brain): Planning is the main and the beginning of any port. Thus, the company uses the Huawei Cloud OptVerse AI Solver to enable intelligent planning and to bring efficiency at every step of production.

Remote Control with Optical Network (Arms): Conventional operations are quite time-taking and labor-intensive. But, with Huawei’s remote control solution, based on an optical network, the tasks become easier, safer, and consume less time.

Smart Horizontal Transport (Legs): Ports are usually 24/7 open work. With overloads and safety risks, it often becomes difficult to get the appropriate results. But Huawei Horizontal Transport solution integrates such features that enable autonomous driving, intelligent obstacle avoidance, and adaptive cruise control, which reduces safety and increases efficiency by 20 percent.

Smart Production Security (Eyes): Huawei provides a smart production security solution to aid terminals as well as safety risks.

Apart from these mechanisms, Huawei also takes supports Remote Inspection and Smart Gates solutions. Together, these lead to faster inspection and better collaboration. Ultimately, this will help the company to understand the needs of consumers and respond to them even faster.

Do you think Kirin chips will return next year?

Kirin return next year

There is a bunch of news surrounding Huawei‘s comeback in the chipset market. On the other hand, there’s a question tagged – whether the company will return to the Kirin franchise next year.

Reports suggest that Huawei is gathering support from Chinese semiconductor makers. The aim of this partnership between Huawei and Chinese firms is aimed to make a breakthrough in the chipset market.

Meanwhile, Huawei has not given any official node on this matter.

Following the last two news, readers have asked us whether the company would make a return with Kirin chipsets. On that, we don’t have an exact answer but we can check some facts before we jump to the conclusion.

Recent Report:

According to the source, Huawei initially plans to make network equipment chips, not smartphone processors. Because mobile chipset requires advanced lithography technology as compared to network equipment. Yet, the deadline for this achievement is set around this year.

That’s how we cannot deny the possibility of Huawei for the return of Kirin next year. However, we do believe that the company needs 5G RF component before proceeding with the mobile processor. As the company already has access to Snapdragon chips.

Still in development:

Past insights reveal that HiSilicon has not stopped researching semiconductor design. This would help the company to make a good comeback, once the printing services reconnect to build new Kirin processors.

Backdrop:

Back in 2019, Huawei has been prohibited to get U.S. technologies. The company cannot purchase new techs or sell them. In 2020, the U.S. further extended this ban and stopped Huawei from printing new chips via third-party manufacturers such as TSMC.

Kirin 9000 was the last Kirin that made its debut with the Huawei Mate 40 series. In the aftermath, the phone maker has saved some inventory for later released products such as Mate X2 and P50 series. However, it later decided to switch completely to Snapdragon processors but due to the lack of RF processors, the company cannot add 5G touch in new smartphones.

Still, Huawei keeps on digging for new ways to access new technologies and resolve the current difficulties.

Huawei 5G Massive MIMO

Huawei has decided to commercially deploy the third-generation 5G Massive MIMO in the global markets. And, to begin with, the company has initiated the assembling procedure of the product from the Philippines region.

According to the latest information, the Huawei 5G Massive MIMO is capable of achieving the best performance with the lowest power consumption. Further, it involves several advanced and new-generation innovative technologies for managing operations.

For instance, ultra-wideband, multi-antenna, and extremely large antennas. Together, these components improve spectral as well as energy efficiency. Besides, it also aids the industrialists to maintain green, simplified and high-end 5G networks.

So far, the Philippines has been constructing the 5G infrastructure for three years. On the flip side, it executed several Massive MIMO products to continuously deliver 5G facilities among users as well as maintain the 4G demands.

However, in the recent few years, the 5G techniques have overtaken the network spectrum. And the latest MIMO product can face all the hurdles to meet the required network development. The proof is the download and upload speeds which are 35% more than the normal network solutions.

Moreover, it enlarges the coverage area of the network by 30 percent. Eventually, it surrounds the large inter-site distances that other technologies usually don’t.
