Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform underpins Huawei’s connected car solution
French automaker Groupe PSA and Huawei have introduced the first connected vehicle to stem from their partnership announced last year. The DS 7 Crossback will be showcased on the Huawei booth at industrial trade fair, Hannover Messe 2018 at the Hannover Exhibition Centre, Germany, which runs 23-27 April.
The DS 7 Crossback uses Groupe PSA’s connected vehicle modular platform (CVMP) and is equipped with Huawei’s OceanConnect Internet Of Things (IoT) platform for connected services.
Drivers can access new services such as connected navigation, natural language, voice recognition and a connected service portal via the vehicle’s dashboard screen. The vehicle’s maintenance status and the history of journeys and driving styles are also accessible from the customer’s smartphone.
The OceanConnect IoT platform underpins Huawei’s connected car solution. This solution can help to develop connected cars, smart homes and smart cities, giving users access to an array of services designed to facilitate daily life.
Huawei claims all digital interactions between the car and the cloud are secure; customer and car data are encrypted, and their integrity, authenticity and confidentiality are guaranteed. The platform will be used for all Groupe PSA’s connected vehicles in all regions where these vehicles are marketed.
“The key to successful digital transformation of car manufacturers is to build a digital cloud platform,” said Leon He, head of automotive industry business unit of Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
“Based on the platform, car manufacturers, ecosystem developers, and industry application partners are gathered to jointly sell vehicle products and services across countries in the global market and provide personalised travel services to car owners and users.”
The partners, said new services for private customers and fleet managers will be regularly added to the vehicle’s features. They include infotainment services, remote software updates and navigation mapping, personal assistant, remote vehicle diagnostic and maintenance functions, and services useful for car hire companies, fleet managers and carsharing operators.
“By deploying its new platform connecting the vehicle to the [IoT], Groupe PSA enriches its service offering and makes mobility easier for all its customers,” added Jean Leflour, SVP connected vehicle & services architecture strategy, Groupe PSA.
“DS 7 Crossback is the first vehicle to benefit from this joint project, which will ultimately be rolled out to all group vehicles.”
