Smart, self-driving cars
Relax, and leave the driving to us.
In some cities, four in 10 cars will be autonomous by 2030. To enable this seismic shift in transportation, Huawei launched its Intelligent Automotive Solution business unit in May 2019. We invest about US$1 billion annually in research and development related to autonomous driving technologies.
Autonomous vehicles will produce broad social benefits:
- Connectivity: Autonomous smart cars will give passengers more connectivity while on the move. People will be able to stay in touch with family, kids, and friends.
- Safety: Each year, human error causes traffic accidents that kill 1.3 million people worldwide. Fully autonomous vehicles could reduce traffic fatalities by 94%.
- Sustainability: By running more efficiently, autonomous vehicles will emit far fewer carbon than current cars. As much as 60% less.
Smart, self-driving cars will lead to the emergence of the “third space:” not quite like being at home and yet nearly as homey. The third space will lead to fundamental changes in how we use our time daily. The full benefits of this seismic shift are not yet fully visible.
Huawei provides smart components and systems for autonomous vehicles, helping manufacturers produce cars that are better, safer, and cleaner.
