Huawei’s smart car solution has been upgraded in an all-round way, and the M5 Huawei advanced intelligent driving version was launched.

[TechWeb] On April 16th, on the eve of 2023 Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, Huawei released Huawei ADS 2.0 (Huawei Advanced Driving System) and a series of smart car solutions such as smart cockpit, smart car lighting and smart car digital platform.

Yu Chengdong, Huawei’s managing director, terminal BG CEO and smart car solution BU CEO, announced at the press conference that Huawei’s advanced intelligent driving system HUAWEI ADS 2.0 will be launched in AITO’s M5 Huawei Advanced Intelligent Driving Edition, followed by Aouita 11 and Extreme Fox Alfa S?HI Edition, and more models will be carried in the future. With more models of HUAWEI ADS landing, more and more cars are running on the road, and the mileage is getting longer and longer. This system will become more and more sophisticated.

The advanced intelligent driving system built by Huawei, based on multi-sensor fusion, combined with high-performance intelligent driving platform and anthropomorphic intelligent driving algorithm, takes safety and intelligence as the core, and realizes the ultimate continuous experience for high-speed, urban and parking scenes. At the same time, based on ultra-large-scale cloud simulation and data mining training, data-driven, rapid iteration, traveling thousands of kilometers a day, making vehicles smarter and smarter.

Urban NCA can be opened with or without maps, and more cities are being unlocked.

Due to the complex road conditions, many unexpected situations and the rapid development of urban infrastructure in the city, the landing of NCA (Intelligent Pilot Assistance) in urban areas has become a difficult problem faced by many car companies. Huawei’s advanced intelligent driving system has been implemented in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou, playing with the complex urban road conditions with the flexible decision-making and decisive disposal ability of "old drivers". In addition, Chongqing, which is known as the "8D Magic City", will soon unlock the NCA in the urban area, and Hangzhou will also land in Q2.

HUAWEI ADS 1.0 has realized the BEV architecture based on Transformer, while HUAWEI ADS 2.0 has been further upgraded, and the road topology-based reasoning network has been further enhanced. Even without high-precision maps, you can understand various road elements such as roads and traffic lights, making it possible to drive without maps. This year, Q3 will realize the landing of 15 cities without maps, and Q4 will add 30 cities without maps, reaching 45 cities, which will make smart driving more free.

The system can cover 90% of urban scenes, making daily commuting more comfortable. At complex intersections, scenes where people and vehicles are mixed can also pass smoothly, and you can take the initiative to overtake and change lanes, which greatly improves travel efficiency.

High-speed NCA (Intelligent Pilot Assistance) also performed well. The experience of HUAWEI ADS 2.0 was upgraded, and the ability to face up and down ramps, obstacle avoidance, road construction and other scenes was further improved at high speed, which made the average manual takeover mileage increase from 100km to 200km in HUAWEI ADS 1.0, realizing a "more assured" cross-city travel experience. When merging into the expressway, the system monitors and predicts the vehicle behavior of the surrounding target lanes in real time, and executes the best interaction strategy, which is fast and efficient, and the success rate of merging is high. When approaching the high-speed exit, the system changes to the exit lane in advance according to the surrounding comprehensive road conditions to avoid the embarrassment of "missing the exit" in unfamiliar environment.

On the high-speed and expressway, there are labyrinth overpasses and tray bridges. Before entering the curve, the system will slow down in advance. When passing through the curve with large curvature, the vehicle will remain centered and the steering wheel will be slippery, so there will be no frequent back-and-forth corrections, which will bring stable comfort to the drivers and passengers.

APA (Intelligent Parking Assist) has the industry-leading parking space identification ability, including automatic parking space search, 360 parking space discovery and parking space display. At the same time, it supports intelligent parking of up to 160 kinds of parking spaces, such as unconventional parking spaces such as sloping parking spaces and broken parking spaces, and can also be parked, so that it can be parked when it is really visible. After parking is interrupted, it can automatically connect. In case of pedestrians and obstacles, the car will not quit after parking, and the pedestrians will automatically connect after leaving.

RPA (Remote Parking Assist) solves the embarrassing scene of "cars can get in, people can’t get out" in narrow parking spaces, or it is inconvenient to take and put large luggage in the car and trunk, thus realizing worry-free parking.

HUAWEI ADS 2.0 has further improved its ability to handle narrow parking spaces. For narrow parking spaces with a car width margin of only more than 0.4 meters, it can be easily completed through APA intelligent parking. For extremely narrow parking spaces with a car width margin of less than 0.4 meters, RPA can also be used to realize direct entry and direct exit.

AVP (parking service Auxiliary) * will realize the industry’s first cross-floor and underground parking lot, which can be activated on the ground, reach by the optimal route across floors, and roam independently when the parking space is occupied.

*AVP will be realized by the end of 2023.

HUAWEI iDVP Smart Car Digital Platform, Creating a Black Land of Software-defined Cars

The digital base of HUAWEI iDVP smart car is the foundation of realizing software-defined car, and the core of this architecture is hierarchical decoupling and SOA (service-oriented distributed architecture) service. Relying on high-performance communication and computing hardware platform and basic software platform, it is a "black land" for car companies to realize software-defined automobile strategy construction. HUAWEI iDVP shields the hardware differences through the device abstraction layer and decouples the software and hardware through the atomic service layer. At present, more than 800 standardized API interfaces have been delivered to realize the rapid adaptation of cross-vehicle differences, and the cross-vehicle reuse rate of platform applications can reach over 90%. Not only can car companies improve the efficiency of vehicle development, but also make users’ application experience and usage habits consistent among generations of models, and maintain familiarity and intimacy. HUAWEI iDVP makes full use of atomic service set, simplifies application development mode and improves development efficiency. At the same time, the hardware capability is open to users, and users can customize their applications according to their personal preferences, so as to create personal personalized application services.

As the original application of HUAWEI iDVP, HUAWEI xMotion centrally controls the driving, braking, steering and suspension of the car. Through millisecond perception of the car body state and centimeter-level motion estimation, it adopts dual feedforward and feedback active pre-control technology to realize the longitudinal, lateral and vertical three-axis displacement of the car body and full attitude control with 6 degrees of freedom, making driving safer, driving easier and riding more comfortable. Aiming at the problem that driving on wet roads is easy to slip, RTC (Intelligent Dynamic Torque Control) can distribute more torque to the wheels with strong grip, thus improving driving safety. Aiming at the problem that the car is prone to understeer when crossing a high-speed curve, ICC (Intelligent cornering Control) simulates the driving of an old driver by cooperating with the motor, braking, steering and suspension, which improves the steering sensitivity, reduces the person’s roll caused by centrifugal force and improves the driving comfort. Aiming at the problem of driving fatigue caused by frequent braking when going downhill, RDC (Intelligent Ramp Cruise Energy Recovery) is based on high-precision slope estimation and applies motor energy recovery, which not only realizes steep slope descent, liberates feet, but also improves cruising range.
