Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Chinese telecom giant Huawei established on September 8 an electric technology company, according to Chinese database query platform Tianyancha, signaling its further offensive into automobile-related domain.

Involving a registered capital of 250 million yuan ($36.6 million), Huawei Electric Technology Co.,Ltd.—that's what the newborn company is dubbed—is wholly owned by Huawei Technologies Co.,Ltd., according to Tianyancha. Its business scope extends to cover the sale and manufacturing of intelligent in-car devices and the R&D and testing development of engineering and technologies.

Wang Jun, head of Huawei's smart car solution business unit, serves as the company's chairman.

Huawei Technologies Co.,Ltd. has added such businesses as the R&D, production, sale and service of automotive parts and intelligent system to its business scope, local media outlets said in mid-August.

According to Tianyancha, Huawei unveiled last month a number of new patents about automobile and transporation, including an autonomous driving method and terminal device, the method and device used to control the driving direction of intelligent vehicles, and the method designed to recognize traffic lights and relevant system and computing devices.

At the 2020 China Auto Forum kicking off on August 13, Wang Jun introduced the latest achievements Huawei has gained for intelligent vehicle development, including three in-car operating systems and a cross-domain integrated software architecture dubbed Vehicle Stack.

The three operating systems—HOS (Harmony OS), AOS and VOS—focus on automobile cockpit, intelligent driving and smart vehicle control respectively.

According to Wang's speech, Huawei develops the Harmony cabin operating system (namely, HOS) that targets the application scenarios of the automobile cockpit and the demands for matching the upper-level application software and the underlying hardware.

The HOS is also favorable to the decoupling of the cockpit-mounted software and hardware. Besides, based on the HOS, Huawei develops basic services for such core technologies as the voice interaction, the visual recognition and audio optimization.

The system supports the open port jointly defined with OEMs, which can be quickly developed by partners so as to form an application ecosystem.

Additionally, Huawei HiCar, the tech giant's self-developed smartphone-to-vehicle mobile phone interconnection solution, has to-day supported over 20 automakers and is currently active in about 150 car models. Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's customer business, said on September 10 at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020. He added that the solution is expected to be installed in over 5 million vehicles by 2021.
