Huawei has far better autonomous driving system than Tesla
The automotive industry is rising these days, many of the smartphone manufacturers are also moving towards the car industry including Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, and more.
In concern of the fact, the ArcFox Alpha S and Cyrus Huawei Smart Selection SF 5 co-powered by Huawei Technologies have already entered the market. The models launched on the 17th and 19th of April respectively.
As of the 22nd of April, reservations for the Cyrus SF 5 reach over 3000 in just two days, which shows the craze of the company’s smart technology among the customers.
Huawei is not only emerging in this field but also proven to be a threat to the smart car OEM’s ( Original Equipment Manufacturer) with its powerful and intelligent technology for smart vehicles.
At the Global Analyst Summit, Huawei Rotating Chairman, Eric Xu, informed that it can attain 1000 kilometers of consistent autonomous driving in the urban area, far better than Tesla. Since then, Huawei Autopilot surpasses Tesla is trending among the tech-savvy on the internet.
Let me tell you, what is the reason behind Huawei has a far better autonomous driving system than Tesla.
Not long ago, an SNS user shared an autonomous driving video, which said to be of Polar Fox Alpha S equipped with Huawei’s Autopiloting techniques.
We can witness from the video that the car can achieve smooth deriving on the urban roads and easily avoid all possible hinders such as wayfarer, turns, and crowded vehicles. As well it can handle all situations like performance on traffic lights and emergency situation without any manual command.
This vehicle adopts L4-level technologies aimed to give you an amazing driving experience. Huawei’s Lidar system made a great contribution to active this autopiloting.
It’s the biggest difference between Huawei and Tesla’s driverless techniques as well as the reason why Huawei’s technology can perform very well.
Previously the CEO of this US-based firm made a statement saying “Lidar is a stupid solution” and shows his object to the use of Lidar in automotive vehicles.
According to him, humans can drive safely through visual information and information processed by the brain. He was indicating that Tesla models work through visual perception and algorithms in spontaneous decision-making.
Difference between Huawei and Tesla Models:
Tesla’s driverless method:
About the key setup in the model of both companies, Tesla’s driverless system is equipped with a camera and millimeter-wave radar solution, which worked on the concept of the human eye.
To be precise, it directly observes people, objects, and traffic barriers on the road with the highest recognition. However, it affected by all factors as human eyes such as night, rain, snow, and fog.
But the millimeter-wave radar makes sure to measures the accurate distance and speed of the object as well doesn’t affect by the weather conditions. The cost of this device is also low.
In terms of absolute standard, it falls to determine the surface shape of an object under some environmental conditions. So it’s somehow lacking in comparison to Huawei’s developed techniques.
The Polar Fox Alpha S model also features the same camera and millimeter-wave radar, but as an extension, it has three lidars for working under every weather condition.
Huawei’s ADS mechanism based on L4 autonomous driving architecture, which delivers a full-stack solution for L4-L2+ autonomous driving. It can meet the smooth evolution requirements of L4-L2+ and is based on the large-scale volume of autonomous driving systems.
The reason behind Tesla doesn’t select the Lidar technology yet:
The main reason is the cost, which is too high for the lidar. To be mentioned, Take Velodyne- a famous lidar company sell its 16-line, 32-line, and 64-line lidars at 4,000 USD 40,000 USD, and 80,000 USD respective, which is expensive.
However, Huawei’s self-developed lidar available at a lesser price, which is surely a huge benefit for the company. It also claims to reduce the cost of 96-line lidar to less than 200 USD.
Above all these, a suitable combination of hardware and software is required to build a smart car. Unsurprisingly, Huawei lives up to expectations of a smart car with its up-to-date technology. (Read More)
New Huawei Avita 11 car launching on March 19
Car maker, AVATR (Avita) announced a new single-motor version of the Avita 11 smart car that will launch on March 19 and it will be packed with Huawei Hi smart car solutions.

AITO changes car promotion to ‘Huawei Wenjie’
Today, Huawei and its smart car partner AITO shared a post on Weibo to open a new chapter of a partnership for Wenjie cars, as well as new technologies.
According to the information, AITO wrote “Every place you want to go is a destination. where to go You decide! HUAWEI asks the world, go where you want to go.”
It seems like a usual slogan but the car maker also shared a promotional image, which shows “Huawei Wenjie” and replaced “AITO Wenjie”. There is also a video teaser, which also added a similar branding.
This change appeared quietly and people online marked the difference with several theories.
Last month, AITO featured the Huawei logo (including chrysanthemum) on the promotional poster of the AITO M7. This news also raised eyebrows.
On the latest matter, Huawei issued a statement, saying that Wenjie is Huawei’s ecosystem car brand and a new business model created by Huawei.
Huawei provides core software and hardware technologies such as electrification and smart components. The cooperation also includes product definition, user experience, quality control, channel retailing, and brand marketing to help car companies sell good cars.
Huawei is also helping car companies to achieve commercial success and large-scale sales of Huawei’s smart auto parts. Huawei says SERES is the car company that cooperated with Huawei the earliest and deepest.
“The two companies signed a business-deepening cooperation agreement in February this year. The two firms will further promote the establishment of a joint innovation center to provide users with a more efficient and convenient smart travel experience and lead a new era of the intelligent automobile industry,” concludes Huawei.
Aside from Huawei’s statement, one thing is for sure Huawei and AITO’s parent SERES are growing their steps further into the smart car world.
A recent agreement with SERES aims at 1 million vehicle sales by 2026. On the other hand, the two partners are planning to launch a new flagship car platform by this year.
Huawei AITO M7 is receiving OTA V1.0.105 upgrade
Yu Chengdong, Huawei Smart Car Business CEO announced that the AITO M7 smart car is receiving a new V1.0.105 OTA update with a number of new features and improvements.
According to the information, the new update has features for HarmonyOS smart cockpit system. It brought in 160 optimizations including the new smart car search mode.
The latest V1.0.105 version AITO M7 system can automatically identify and send parking space information to the AITO app, making it easier for everyone to find a car parking. This update also improves the smart voice assistant Celia.
To check parking space information on a Huawei phone, open the “AITO App” in the “Love Car” -> “Location” interface, and click “Use Smart to Find a Car”.
After the smart car search switch is turned on, it is necessary to complete the parking into the garage and lock the car before the AITO application on the mobile phone can receive the detailed location information of the vehicle.
The floor identification information currently only supports underground parking lots in core business districts and transportation hubs in some Chinese cities. For more details on this matter, see the AITO official website. If the garage network signal is poor, the AITO mobile app may not be able to receive the detailed location information of the vehicle.
Celia has added 4 new commands: Start to work, go home after work, take a rest for a day trip, open the door, and turn down the volume. When going to work in the morning, when the user sits in the driver’s seat, Celia will greet you (the welcome message can be customized).
It could then remind today’s schedule (from the calendar of the car), play music (optional Huawei music or the radio, the default is the morning music station of the radio), and automatically navigate to the company.
Additionally, Celia will reduce the volume of music when the door is opened (you can customize the volume value, the default is 10% Volume). It will be resumed to a normal state when the door is closed.
Now one sentence can give Celia 5 consecutive voice commands. These include “close the window”, “turn on the AC”, “turn on the seat heating”, “play music”, and “navigate to the company”.
M7 users can now operate left, right, up, and down for scroll and swipe features on Settings, video, and home screen via voice command.
Furthermore, there is a new calendar feature, which can create schedules, automatic schedule reminders, one-key navigation of calendar addresses, and more. Simultaneously, the mobile phone schedule can be automatically synchronized to the car.
