Huawei’s current chairman of the board Xu Zhijun said at a recent meeting with analysts that the company will continue to ramp up investment in smart car software to improve automation. He stressed that Huawei in the automotive sector will become a progressively growing supplier of components in the field of intelligent transport networks.
Interestingly, one of the bloggers on the Weibo social network recently posted a video of Huawei’s autopilot, adding:
“This is allegedly a self-driving demonstration in an Arcfox Polar Fox Alpha S electric vehicle equipped with Huawei’s Intelligent Driving System. You can see that the Alpha S autopilot is at a high level of readiness, works naturally and well even on difficult road sections. ”
The source also mentioned that Xu Zhijun announced at an annual conference with analysts a few days ago that three car companies have partnered with Huawei: BAIC New Energy, Chongqing Changan Automobile and Guangzhou Automobile – together they are due to launch this week the car brand and present the aforementioned car Arcfox Polar Fox Alpha S. It is reported that the car may be available in various versions, including the most advanced version with the intelligent platform Huawei HI Smart Car and the HarmonyOS operating system.
Xu Zhijun said that Huawei does not create its own cars, but helps car companies produce advanced cars. Huawei is going to expand the number of partners among automakers. The company is now working with three partners and is preparing to release smart cars under three brands. Cars with the Huawei HI Smart Car platform will feature the Huawei logo in the cabin, but this will only affect those models that offer an advanced intelligent driver assistance system.
