On April 18, 2021, at the Shanghai International Auto Show 2021, Huawei released a new generation of intelligent components and solutions including 4D imaging radar, AR-HUD, and MDC810.
At the end of October 2020, Huawei released the HI brand, and in-depth cooperation with car companies in the Huawei Inside mode to create smart cars, including a new smart car digital architecture and five smart systems, smart driving, smart cockpit, smart electric, smart Networking, and smart car cloud services, as well as more than 30 intelligent components.
Returning to the Shanghai Auto Show, Huawei today released a new generation of intelligent components and solutions including 4D imaging radar, AR-HUD, and MDC810.
Huawei’s smart cockpit solution focuses on computing platforms, HarmonyOS vehicle operating systems, core services, display platforms, software and hardware ecosystems, helping automakers, tier-one suppliers, and application partners develop services
Huawei’s AR-HUD has a volume of only 10L and adjusts the projection area according to the user’s eye position, so ordinary windshields can be used; the viewing angle reaches 13°x 5°, which can show more content; at the same time, it can be at a distance of 7.5 meters with a 70-inch frame.
Huawei’s high-resolution 4D imaging radar uses a large 12T24R antenna array (12 transmitting channels and 24 receiving channels). The 4D imaging radar inherits the excellent range and speed measurement capabilities of traditional millimeter-wave radars, is not affected by light, rain, and snow, and has the advantages of unique detection capabilities for non-line-of-sight occluded targets.
Huawei MDC is the platform-based standardization concept. The mass-produced MDC 810 has a dense computing power of 400 TOPS and meets ASIL D functional safety requirements. It is equipped with intelligent driving platform software MDC Core (including intelligent driving operating systems AOS, VOS), and a complete toolchain to meet congestion and follow-up.
For high-level autonomous driving application scenarios such as TJP, high-speed cruise (HWP), and automatic parking (AVP), it has been the first to be installed on ARCFOX Alpha S and mass-produced on the market.
The “Huawei Octopus” autonomous driving open platform is based on the core hardware of autonomous driving: data, high-precision maps, and algorithms.
Huawei said that going to the cloud is the only way for autonomous driving from development to commercial use. It is necessary to ensure that vehicles can access the cloud nearby in all regions, and easily solve the problems of coverage and security.
Huawei also officially released the latest high-precision map cloud service capabilities and road signs this time. Huawei already has Class A surveying and mapping qualifications for navigation electronic map production, and complete high-precision map collection and mapping capabilities.
Huawei TMS (Thermal Management System) can reduce the operating temperature of the heat pump from -10°C to -18°C in the industry under the premise of satisfying comfort through integrated design of architecture, components, and control integration technologies, thereby increasing the battery life of new energy vehicles by 20%.
Huawei stated that in 2021, Huawei’s R&D investment in the smart auto parts business will reach 1 billion U.S. dollars, and the current R&D team has more than 5,000 people.
