Chinese technology giant Huawei has established an alliance with 18 auto makers to build a 5G-enabled automobile ecosphere to accelerate the commercial use of 5G technologies in the industry, said a press release.

The first batch of 18 auto makers of this alliance includes First Automobile Group, Chang’an Automobile, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, SAIC Motor Corporation, Guangzhou Automobile Group, BYD Auto, Great Wall Motors, Chery Holdings and JAC Motors.

‘Together with the deep convergence of automotive and ICT, intelligent connected vehicle emerges as a new revolutionary development engine of human society, with its impact going far beyond the two industries themselves,’ said Huawei rotating chairman Eric Xu.

With the advantages in transmission speed, reliability and low latency, 5G technology is considered essential for enhancing connected vehicles’ self-driving and entertainment capabilities.

According to GlobalData, the Asia-Pacific will be the leading region in terms of 5G technology adoption with 1.14 billion subscribers, accounting for 65 per cent of global 5G subscriptions by 2024, which will significantly influence segments like IoT and automobile. — New Age
