CEBIT 2018: Huawei debuts its latest IoT and AI products
During CEBIT 2018, Huawei unveiled several of its latest IoT and AI products designed to help enterprises create ‘intelligent’ transformation.
Huawei’s President of Global Marketing, Qiu Heng, delivered a keynote speech in which he spoke of how the IoT and AI are enabling businesses to connect the physical and digital world.
The company’s OceanConnect IoT platform has been upgraded to support connected cars systems.
Huawei highlights four key elements of its IoV (Internet of Vehicles) platform:
Connectivity enablement: The platform provides safe, reliable connectivity for vehicles, supporting hundreds of millions of connections and concurrent access from millions of vehicles. The flexible platform supports deployment in private, public and hybrid clouds, accommodating their different architectures. Huawei uses its global public cloud deployment capabilities to support automotive companies' global business operations.
Data enablement: The platform collects vehicle status and driving behavior data, and analyzes the data to create profiles of drivers and vehicles (Digital Twins) on the cloud. The precise analysis of driving behavior and scenarios enables intelligent content distribution and service recommendations.
Ecosystem enablement: By separating data from services, the platform helps automotive companies control their digital assets, converge third-party content and applications, and build a thriving ecosystem around their business.
Evolution enablement: The Connected Vehicle Platform interconnects with V2X. The cooperation covers vehicle intelligence and intelligent vehicle-road synergy to evolve the intelligent experience for drivers while delivering new levels of safety and efficiency.
In addition, the platform has been upgraded with eLTE-IoT and now covers a radius of 10km with 10 percent stronger signals. Latency is reduced by 50 percent and the maximum standby time is extended to 10 years.
As for AI, Huawei debuted a software-defined camera which it claims is the industry’s first.
The M/X series of cameras are said to improve image processing capabilities by 25 times. Furthermore, in low-light scenarios, the characteristic acquisition rate exceeds 85 percent.
Here are three of the camera series’ unique features:
Environment Adaptive Operations: The cameras have preset parameter configuration for the daytime, nighttime, and in different weather such as cloud, rain, and snow. When detecting time or whether changes, the cameras automatically adjust parameter settings to ensure video quality. No manual intervention is needed, which significantly improves the system operating efficiency.
Front-end Intelligence: While traditional cameras can only run a single application, an M/X camera can dynamically load algorithms to run multiple applications.
Continuous Evolution: Huawei cameras allow online upgrades to ensure continuous operation. In contrast, traditional cameras require remote manual upgrades which typically results in operational interruptions.
Huawei's Global Connectivity Index (GCI) report shows that intelligent connectivity will bring a new wave of innovation and drive economic development. By 2025, the digital economy is estimated to reach US$ 23 trillion in size.
The new solutions are being demonstrated at Huawei’s booth at CEBIT. The booth is in Area C01 in Hall 13.
