Huawei Unveils AI-Powered Smartphone to Drive a Car at Mobile World Congress

In a first, Chinese Techy giant Huawei Unveils AI-Powered Smartphone-driven car that uses its artificial intelligence(AI) technology to drive a car- and not only avoid hitting a dog on the road but also take quick and smart actions to avoid collisions.

In an incredible video launched on 21 Feb, the Chinese company has successfully demonstrated the prowess of its technology. In a five-week challenge Huawei’s flagship “Mate 10 Pro” proves itself by taking control of a Porsche Panamera using its artificial intelligence chip, not hitting a real dog sitting on the road and maneuvered itself to side-step the roadblock.

Through its RoadReader project, the Chinese company will showcase this technology and power of Huawei’s AI-powered device at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona on February 26-27.

The AI technology enables Mate 10 Pro handset to “understand its surroundings.” It can identify thousands of different objects including cats, balls, and bikes, and can programme the vehicle to take the most appropriate course of action.

Huawei said The AI-enabled Mate 10 Pro device can differentiate between food, pets, landscape, and other objects through its camera app. The embedded AI on Mate 10 Pro transforms the Porsche Panamera into a driverless vehicle and allowed cars to steer clear of objects that appear down the road.

“As our smartphone is already brilliant at recognizing objects, but we wanted to see it in a span of five weeks ours already embedded AI technology to pilot a car, to recognize certain other objects, instruct the car to take action or avoid them,” said Andrew Garrihy, Huawei Western Europe’s Chief Marketing Officer.

The Mate 10 Pro, with its most innovative features, comes in Titanium Grey, Mocha Brown, Midnight Blue, and Pink Gold and has a six-inch full OLED HDR display with 70,000:1 high contrast.  By successfully using its AI-powered smartphone, Huawei suggests that its high-end Kirin chip can also be used for other AI-powered tasks in the future.

Currently, most autonomous car relies on third party technology partners to generate the power of purpose-built chips, but Huawei did away this by using technology which is already available on their smartphones.
