Huawei smart car solution will bring autonomous driving by 2030: ICT President
At the Autonomous Driving Network China Industry Summit, Huawei ICT Business Unit Director Wang Tao delivered a keynote speech about Huawei’s smart car solution planning for 2030. He also shares the company’s view about current problems in the automotive industry.
Going with his speech, he mentioned, the Chinese tech giant is flourishing its autonomous technology for the future scenario. Seeing the acceleration and trend for autopiloting, the vehicle industry will soon realize the development and integration of-
- Full-stack AI Empowerment
- Intent Connected Interface
- Single-domain Autonomous Closed Loop
- Cross-Platform Seamless Connection
In the future, integrating AI, biometrics, vehicle light, AR/VR and other technologies will enable the smart cockpit to present new features that link virtual and live scenarios. The consumers will enjoy zero waiting, contactless, and efficient services, concerning, self-assisting, optimization, and repairing methods.
Furthermore, Director Wang believes autonomous technologies are becoming popular in the industry for their three-dimensional, ultra-wide, deterministic experience, and low-carbon communication technologies. It’s has grown far above then its debuted in 2019.
