There are two ways for HUAWEI in assisting automakers to make better cars. Firstly, the HUAWEI Inside, through which HUAWEI has formed strategic partnerships with BAIC Group, Changan Motor, and GAC Group to provide support to the auto groups’ subsidiary brands. Wang Jun also disclosed that “several exciting moments are coming.” Secondly, the traditional auto part supplier model, where HUAWEI provides high-quality auto parts for vehicle manufacturers.

According to the COO, HUAWEI has invested more than $1 billion in auto parts R&D this year, with a team of over 5000 members, and put over 30 intelligent vehicle part products on the market. HUAWEI is consistent in its “platform + ecosystem” strategy and focuses on building operating systems for autonomous driving, smart cabin and vehicle control domain platforms.

The executive also provided information about its intelligent in-vehicle optical technology and didn’t rule out the possibility that in-vehicle communication system will change from electricity to light. “We are applying the advanced optical technology in vehicles, and may transform users’ in-car visual experience by creating numerous optical products such as AR-HUD, seat-back display, and smart lighting,” Wang Jun explained.

Moreover, the Suzhou HUAWEI innovation center will be opening by the end of this year. The company will allocate RMB50 million annually in equipment and send over 300 experts in three years for cooperative innovation with partners.
