Published

on


On February 9, Huawei has inaugurated the new Intelligent Mining Innovation Lab in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province. This Lab is opened by the People’s Government of Shanxi Province, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Jinneng Holding Group, and Shanxi Cloud Era Technology Co. Ltd.

The purpose behind the setup of this lab is to help coal mines in Shanxi Province, reduce staffing for high-risk positions, increase efficiency, and improve intrinsic safety by exploring new uses of ICT technologies including wireless industrial control networks, industrial optical ring networks, and cloud computing.

The Intelligent Mining Innovation Lab is the result of a deep partnership between Huawei and the People’s Government of Shanxi Province, which is aimed at creating a digital ecosystem for all, by all, and for all. Shanxi is one of China’s largest energy-producing provinces and has extensive experience and diverse application scenarios in coal production.

This lab has a staff of 220 ICT and coal mining experts, seeking to make breakthroughs in areas such as information networks, automation enablement, intelligent sensing technologies, and big data generated by coal mines, as well as related ecosystem collaboration opportunities.

Alongside this, Huawei also signed individual strategic partnership agreements with Jinneng Holding Group and Shanxi Cloud Era Technology Co., Ltd., to explore duplicable technology models, application modules, standards systems, and talent cultivation, among other areas.

In attendance at the lab’s opening ceremony were also representatives from the People’s Government of Shanxi Province, including from the provincial Science and Technology Department, Department of Industry and Information Technology, and Transformation and Comprehensive Reform Demonstration Zone, as well as representatives from Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Jinneng Holding Group, Shanxi Cloud Era Technology Co., Ltd., and Shanxi ZhiChuang City Technology Development Co., Ltd.

Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei said that Huawei hopes to combine ICT with coal mining technologies to support digital and intelligent transformation across the coal industry, realize a production model that features fewer workers, greater safety, and higher efficiency as well as enable coal mine workers to wear suits and ties at work.

Additionally, Ren stated that the lab will explore how intelligent development in the global mining industry will proceed: “In 2020, we illuminated one coal mine, one iron and steel plant, and one port. Over the next two to three years, we aim to illuminate hundreds of coal mines, iron and steel plants, and ports.”

Since 2019, Huawei has explored intelligent transformation with multiple partners in Shanxi’s coal industry, resulting in many intelligent coal mining solutions that have delivered positive results in unmanned, intelligent, clean, and low-carbon operations.

These previous projects inspire confidence in the Intelligent Mining Innovation Lab’s future success in making breakthroughs in scientific research to resolve industry pain points, including high-risk production, poor work conditions, and difficult-to-manage mining equipment.

The coal industry’s main goal for digital transformation is to improve safety and efficiency. Work conditions in mining pits can be extreme and monitoring produces massive amounts of data that needs to reach the surface in real-time. This results in very high uplink traffic, but very low downlink traffic.

To address these factors, Huawei has worked with its industry partners to develop compact wireless base stations that are resistant to dampness, dust, and explosions, and support a 3:1 uplink/downlink bandwidth ratio. Through networking optimization and innovation, the precision of remote equipment controls in pits can be increased from 99.9% to 99.99%.

Huawei plans to use the Intelligent Mining Innovation Lab as a place to continue innovating with partners and making breakthroughs in technologies that can be used in mining pits, including self-cleaning cameras, low-frequency wireless transmission, and risk prediction technologies. These will support robot utilization in key scenarios and unmanned operations in select areas. This lab ultimately aims to help Shanxi’s mines reduce staffing in fully mechanized and intelligent mining scenarios by 60% and the number of workers going down to mining pits each shift by 10% to 20%.

These goals are in line with a recent call from the Chinese government to put “people and life first”. The lab’s breakthroughs in scientific research will support “safety and prosperity enabled by scientific and technological means” and ensure “three no’s and one reduction” within mining pits (i.e., no accidents, no manned shifts, no manned patrols, and staffing reduction). In turn, this will allow the provincial government to use science and technology to manage coal mine production and safety.

The opening of this lab also marks another step Huawei has taken to delve deep into industrial production and decision-making systems and better understand the digital transformation needs of key industrial business scenarios. Part of this initiative includes Huawei’s internal “Coal Mine Corps”, established in January 2021, which will combine industry-specific basic research, product research, and market delivery to shorten related value chains and rapidly respond to market demands.

In addition to promoting the digital transformation of the global coal industry, Huawei has announced its intention to act as “a technology enabler”, working with partners to create healthy industry and business ecosystems and helping its customers in the coal industry deliver more social value.

Huawei and Oniro OS announced to jointly build the future IoT ecosystem

Published

on

Huawei Oniro Ecosystem

Huawei, Oniro OS, SFScon, and NOI Techpark jointly declared to build an ecosystem for future IoT devices. However, Oniro is the project of the Eclipse Foundation. In October 2021, based on the OpenHarmony project, the Eclipse foundation launched Oniro OS, a smart, transparent, vendor-neutral, and independent operating system for the next generation of distributed systems.

The Oniro project is aimed at daily necessities, such as smart TVs, air conditioners, kitchen appliances, smart speakers, and other household devices. South Tyrol is a real technology field and has a wealth of incubators and companies.

Talking about the companies, Huawei and NOI Techpark has been cooperating with each other for a long time. This is a kind of cooperation that has allowed both parties to join the Eclipse Foundation working group Oniro. Oniro reflects the 360° open-source model solves the problems of the Internet of Things (IoT) world.

“The new goal is to make the collaboration between different brands, different invoices, and different models of equipment truly effective,” said Davide Ricci

About Davide Ricci:

Davide Ricci is Director of Huawei Open Source Technology Center (OSTC), a technical expert, and the speaker of the latest SFScon, South Tyrol Free Software Conference held at the Bolzano Innovation Center.

New Goal:

To achieve the aim the IoT devices need to communicate with each other and to begin with strong artificial intelligence means providing the end-users with one. To date, the main problem is that each company that markets these products does not communicate with competitors’ technology, but with different licenses, agreements, and technical baselines, private or non-open source.

Oniro-Ricci explained that the goal is to precisely create compatibility so that companies and multinational companies sit around an open-source table, which is fair and elite, and an equally equal technology can give those who want equal opportunities to the community Contribute to development.

The project is managed by the Eclipse Foundation, which officially released the Oniro project on October 26, 2021, for community adoption. While talking about open source, it is necessary to look at rules and precise rules to ensure the neutrality of the project and the proper conduct of activities.

From this assumption, we can derive the powerful experience of the NOI Technology Park: “Collaboration and Display Techpark Focus Intellectual Property Management Policy-Rich said thanks to the creation of a real manifesto (software material list-SBOM) explaining the basis of open source license management, components, and subcomponents Oniro”.

So far, the Oniro working group has 5 active members, and its goal is to involve others, especially to use NOI Techpark’s strategic role in the Austria-German environment to spread a cross-device ecosystem view and be completely open, transparent, and safe.

Security issues are another factor that is strongly felt within Oniro and part of the long-term debate about the future of technology.

“Everything must pass through the cloud today, but also because of the monetization of data. But. This has caused the fragmentation and unfairness of the Internet of Things because it believes that collaboration between devices can only be achieved through the cloud, without considering the powerful perspective provided by Edge,” said Huawei expert

This project has so many resources and the problem now is to understand and let people understand what are the potential advantages of such an open-source project. Those who participate in similar forms run by the Eclipse Foundation are safe and their investments are protected by a neutral entity.

Therefore, even in the same project, competitors can coexist, which makes the company feel protected. This is undoubtedly a slower development process compared to work done independently by a single supplier, but it is more stable over time. “The success of the Oniro project depends on how many active partners decide to participate. Their number will determine how many devices will be launched in the next few years.
