Under the agreement, both parties will jointly build an innovation center to create a R&D platform boasting intelligentization, connectivity, electrification and sharing features. Both parties will make use of Huawei's advantages in information communication and new energy control technology and conduct deep research on advanced technical application scenarios and carriers provided by Changan Automobile.
The new innovation center will group Huawei and Changan Automobile together to develop such technologies as in-vehicle mobile communication system, multi-terminal connectivity, vehicle-borne operational system, vehicular chips and other new energy tech and explore the evaluation standard system building for IoV industry. Besides, both parties will continue their cooperation in Internet industry and ICT (information, communications and technology) infrastructure domain.
Given consumers' demands on IoV products, both parties will jointly develop such products as in-vehicle T-BOX, smart antennas and car communication modules and the integrated technical solution that can realize interconnection between a vehicle and multiple terminals, so as to have the Changan Automobile's production vehicle models equipped with in-vehicle operational system and vehicular chips under their joint efforts.
