    Huawei with automakers to launch self-driving cars by 2021

    Huawei teams up with automakers to launch self-driving cars – report

    Link to RT Business

    One of the world’s largest telecom companies, Huawei, may launch self-driving vehicles as early as 2021 together with partners in China and beyond, a Huawei representative has revealed to the Financial Times (FT).

    The Chinese tech giant is under intense pressure from the US, which has banned American firms from supplying Huawei with components or technology, amid a simmering trade row with Beijing.

    Huawei, meanwhile, is apparently looking to move beyond the telecoms industry. The corporation’s chief strategy architect, Dang Wenshuan, said there are plans to supply artificial intelligence technology for a joint project with manufacturers, including Audi and GAC Toyota (a joint venture of Chinese automobile maker GAC Group and Toyota Motor Company). China-based Beijing New Energy Automobile and Changan Automobile are also collaborating with the company.

    “From my understanding, we are working together to have a car that will be shipped in the year 2021 or 2022 using these [autonomous driving] components,” Dang said as cited by FT.

    The self-driving cars are expected to be launched in China, as Chinese producers are moving “faster” in this sphere, but the vehicles will also be available in Europe, he added.

    A prototype of the autonomous car was demonstrated to the FT in Huawei’s headquarters. The demo featured an Audi car driving through the streets of Shanghai. The man behind the wheel did not touch any controls, while the vehicle stopped at the traffic lights and avoided pedestrians.

    The project already has competitors in the autonomous driving market given that leading world tech companies, and Chinese ones too, are working on similar projects of their own.

    Alibaba, for example, recently joined rival internet giants Baidu and Tencent in their efforts to create a self-driving car and is reportedly already running road tests. Meanwhile, Google has launched its self-driving taxi startup, Waymo, and Tesla wants to roll out a network of autonomous “robotaxis.”

    I certainly wouldn't want to share technology, nor trust a Huawei controlled self driving car.

    Naive just starts to describe it. I think masochistic may be closer to the truth. Guilt, it's a turrible thang.

    But rilly, with a deadly enemy who have stated in no uncertain terms that they plan to be the dominant world power by 2050, a nation who slaughtered 20-30+ million of their own citizens thanks to the great Chairman Mao and other benevolent tyrants over the years, who still run a police state and always will, who steal as a way of life, the state electronics firm partnering with Western Imbeciles for self-driving cars...what could possibly go wrong?

    At some point, the United States Government has to identify the simple goal of destroying the Chinese Communist party, its much more dangerous to freedom than the Soviet communists ever were. Its us andd with us, the demise of the free world, or them. Did you know that if you are a human outside of the Former British empire, you most likely live under Tyranny?

    Pretty much. Tyrants love tyranny. That's why they hate Western Civilization, and why generation after generation of moles have been sent to undermine.

    For me, I doubt I'll be getting into a Johnnycab anytime soon. Double triple quadruple so if the Chicommies or Hwaaaway has anything to do with it. Possible (but unlikely) exception is unless I'm with the Terminator.

    Boy, I'd sure hate to be in a Huawei controlled self driving car, if I just had a TV interview and complained about my family member being at a Chicom work camp.
