Ask M9, as well as ADS 2.0+ HarmonyOS OS, and read two Huawei press conferences in one article.

On the eve of Shanghai Auto Show, Huawei held two press conferences in succession. One introduced Huawei’s smart car solution, focusing on several models in HI mode, and the other released the version of the intelligent car version of the car with its solution.

The two-day campaign also made the booth of Wen Jie and Huawei extremely popular during the Shanghai Auto Show. So what did these two conferences say? Especially in addition to intelligent driving, what are the new highlights? Electric intellectuals have circled the key points for everyone!

Huawei’s smart car solutions have all been solved?

The first conference was led by Huawei BU Department. Release Huawei ADS 2.0 (Huawei Advanced Driving System), intelligent cockpit, intelligent vehicle lighting, intelligent car digital platform, etc.

Of course, HUAWEI ADS 2.0 is the hottest. Compared with the first generation BEV architecture based on Transformer, 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.

In other words, after upgrading to ADS 2.0, the assisted driving system can realize the urban navigation assisted driving function without relying on high-definition maps. During the function demonstration of ADS 2.0, Tesla, a "friend", was repeatedly compared to prove that Huawei was "far ahead".

In terms of specific launch date and city, Yu Chengdong said that Huawei’s advanced intelligent driving system can cover 90% of urban scenes. At present, it has landed in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and Chongqing and Hangzhou will be unlocked in the second quarter of this year (with high-precision maps). This year, Q3 will realize the landing of 15 cities without maps, and Q4 will add 30 cities without maps, reaching 45 cities.

In terms of price, Huawei offers two options: software subscription and one-time buyout. Among them, HUAWEI ADS 1.0 purchases 32,000 yuan at a time, subscribes to 6,400 yuan a year, and subscribes to 640 yuan for a monthly subscription; HUAWEI ADS 2.0 is purchased at a lump sum of 36,000 yuan, with an annual subscription of 7,200 yuan and a monthly subscription in 720 yuan.

Another heavy upgrade is HarmonyOS 3.0. Not only the car system has been optimized, but also in the intelligent cockpit, passengers’ eyeballs can be recognized by the camera in the car, so as to achieve the functions of adaptive adjustment of HUD height and intelligent adjustment of mirrors.

In addition, the intelligent cockpit can also realize intelligent driving functions such as automatic parking and intelligent cruising through various sensors and cameras in the car to improve driving safety and comfort.

In addition, Yu Chengdong also made a preview of Huawei HarmonyOS 4.0, which can realize the functions of sound source localization in six-tone area, concurrent control in multi-person multi-screen multi-tone area, eye position tracking and eye state recognition in cabin, multi-screen multi-channel bidirectional circulation, multi-screen cross-device projection and so on.

In terms of launch time, HarmonyOS OS 4.0 will be released in the autumn, and new cars including Aouita 12 will also be equipped with this product, and models equipped with HarmonyOS OS 3.0 will be upgraded one after another.

At the same time, Huawei also has many bright spots in optical technology. In the field of optical technology, Huawei has accumulated more than 30 years of technology. This time, Huawei is still very confident and confident in transplanting to smart cars.

First of all, it is the HUAWEI xHUD AR-HUD augmented reality head-up display scheme. The product is based on the self-developed optical imaging module of 2K car gauge. In addition to car gauge AR navigation, it can also realize intelligent driving, lane-level navigation, reversing images, digital elves, giant screen viewing and other functions.

The highest resolution is 1920*730 pixels, and the frame will be further enlarged with the widening of the visual distance. The frame is 70 inches at a distance of 7.5 meters, and 96 inches at a distance of 10 meters.

Secondly, it is Huawei’s HUAWEI xPixel intelligent car light solution. This car light system is characterized by the combination of high-definition vision with millions of pixels and intelligent light control.

Therefore, the headlights can not only be used for normal lighting, but also be matched with the original digital projection headlights with double reflective lenses to plan outdoor activity space or design a personalized welcome animation through ultra-near field projection.

Finally, HUAWEI xScene light field screen, which adopts light field engine technology, can realize 3-meter long-distance imaging and 40-inch super-large format, and can also reduce the visual fatigue caused by the car screen experience and relieve motion sickness.

At the same time, it also won the world’s first gold standard with low motion sickness on-board display, which effectively relieved carsickness. Huawei’s car-mounted light field screen products can be divided into driver’s side, chair back and headrest.

It can be seen that in the future, cars can roll up more than just the screen size and the number of screens. Both Weilai, who uses AR glasses, and Huawei, who makes a "big screen" through HUD, show more possibilities about the future smart cockpit. Huawei has found its own new direction of "far ahead".

Q: How far ahead is the M5 Smart Driving Edition?

The press conference of the M5 Smart Driving Edition was led by Huawei’s consumer BG department. Co-release with mobile phones and other products.

As a smart driving version, its biggest selling point must be the high-level intelligent driving assistance system. This system also comes from the ADS department of Huawei BU. In terms of hardware, Wenjie M5 Intelligent Driving Edition is equipped with an overhead laser radar, three millimeter-wave radars, eleven high-definition cameras and twelve ultrasonic radars, which can realize high-speed and high-order intelligent driving function in urban areas independent of high-precision maps in the later stage.

The software is equipped with ADS 2.0 advanced intelligent driving mentioned above, which Yu Chengdong calls L2.9999999 … infinite loop.

At the press conference, I also recalled BYD Wang Chuanfu’s previous theory that automatic driving was useless: some time ago, an industry tycoon said that automatic driving was a fool. In both cases, either he doesn’t understand or his family is not doing well.

Of course, in addition to adding the software and hardware of ADS 2.0 system; The M5 Intelligent Driving Edition has also made some detailed adjustments.

In order to optimize the wind resistance and increase the cruising range, the hidden door handle, spoiler and other details of the Wujie M5 Intelligent Driving Edition are also optimized, which reduces the wind resistance of the whole vehicle by 11% and increases the comprehensive cruising range of the extended-range version from the original 1242km to 1425km.


Finally, there is a very interesting design. MagLink magnetic interface is added in the rear row of the M5 cockpit, which can realize the linkage between the tablet and the car, and can also charge.

In the back row, a tablet or mobile phone can be installed on the back seat through the magnetic interface to form a movable entertainment screen, and the driver can also lock this "entertainment screen" through the central control screen.

This design has never been tried by other car companies, and it also deeply reflects the ecological integrity of HarmonyOS.

In addition, the M5 Intelligent Driving Edition has added the function of spatial audio, which is the first time that spatial audio has entered the automobile stage. From the actual experience, classical music and symphony can have a stronger sense of scene, while pop music can also have a stronger spatial effect. This function will also be put on the previous models M5 and M7 through OTA.

Yu Chengdong also released an egg after the release of the M5 version, that is, the information of the M9, and bluntly said that the M9 is "the best SUV within 10 million".

Wenjie M9 is positioned as a D-class SUV with a vehicle length of 5230mm and a wheelbase of 3110mm. The whole system comes standard with air suspension and CDC damping system. In addition, the above-mentioned Huawei smart car full-stack technology solutions (HUAWEI ADS 2.0 system, HarmonyOS 3 smart cockpit, Huawei megapixel smart headlights, HUAWEI AR-HUD) will also be carried to this new car. As for the price, Huawei said that the price range of M9 is 500,000-600,000 yuan.


After two press conferences, we can find that Huawei’s "far ahead" is actually not limited to the car and smart driving parts. Huawei, which has repeatedly stressed that it does not build cars, is focusing on smart electric vehicles with its technology accumulated in various fields over the years. Yu Chengdong also said at the press conference that the first half of the competition in the smart electric vehicle industry is electrification and the second half is intellectualization.

Huawei is ready for the second half. At present, many car companies have put forward the plan of "building mobile phones" or joining hands with technology companies to improve the level of intelligence.

While looking forward to Huawei, which is far ahead, we expect more car companies to come up with new technologies to compete with the far ahead and push the whole industry to a new height.
