Segment Business content
Computing Platform

Leveraging its own technologies, the Company is releasing APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) with its Intelligent Driving platform.

-Integrating sensors such as LiDAR, millimeter wave radar, and cameras into the company's in-vehicle computing platform MDC (Mobile Data Center).

-MDC-based algorithms and applications support the industry's continuous development of intelligent driving.

-Set up a standard platform interface that facilitates the linkage between the automated driving platform and the installed components.

Intelligent Cockpit

Huawei will develop an intelligent cockpit based on its Kirin chip and Harmony OS. An intelligent cockpit consists of hardware, software and applications, and supports timely updates.

mPower (Intelligent Electric Drive  Platform)

The Company built a vehicle control operating system based on MCUs (microcontroller units) and released it to various automobile development companies. By providing total solutions from the energy business to devices, the Company will work to solve problems such as the cost of electrification.

Intelligent Connectivity, and Intelligent Vehicle Cloud Service

4G, 5G, and V2X technologies support vehicle to infrastructure and vehicle to vehicle connectivity. Vehicle location, safety, vehicle control, and other intelligent network connectivity features enable access to and management of devices connected to the vehicle.
