Huawei Vice Chairman and Rotating Chairman Xu Zhijun talked about the upcoming release of Polar Fox Alpha S in Shanghai, which can auto-drive 1,000 kilometers without intervention in the downtown area. He confidently said, “This is much better than Tesla.”

Unscrupulous self-media is really disgusting. The mindless people are boring enough. From the video, it was obvious that BAIC asked Xu Zhijun to give them the new models on the platform. So of course Xu Zhijun must help BAIC to speak good things. It’s like two people talking nice polite words to each other when they meet, who would take it seriously. Only the unscrupulous self media will deliberately engage in trouble. To be honest, Xu Zhijun’s eloquence was much worse than Yu Dazui, and he started to kowtow after only two sentences. Even if Huawei really wants to brag about its technology, it won’t let him come out to brag about it, it affects its image! To tell the truth, Huawei’s research and development of autonomous driving technology is indeed more technologically superior than Tesla. After all, Huawei’s accumulation in the ICT field is obviously stronger than that of Tesla, and the key to autonomous driving lies in ICT. Huawei has been studying autonomous driving for a long time, and the mileage on the road test is also very long (tested with a partner’s car). It’s just that it doesn’t build the entire vehicle itself, so I guess that in the future, Huawei’s self-driving technology should be presented to the platform of the vehicle manufacturer like this time. Huawei’s automotive-related patents have the same characteristics as its communications patents: first, invention and utility model patents are relatively high, and almost no appearance patents are applied, which makes its patent value extremely high; second, automotive-related patents are concentrated In terms of software and hardware related to charging and autonomous driving, this can be seen to a certain extent that Huawei’s focus is indeed not in vehicle manufacturing. Well, it looks like this car is about to be unveiled in Shanghai, so just look at its actual performance at that time. Why bother with each other here. By the way. Huawei not only does a good job in hardware, but also in software, especially industry software/industrial software. I’m not blowing it, it’s really good. If I want to say that its software is not good in the comment area, I will delete it directly [laughs]. Just saw a hot list issue. It is not to belittle friends, but I just hope that everyone will have more in-depth thinking about the evaluation criteria of software quality-your knowledge of software may not be as profound as you think. Including most code farmers, they may not know how to judge software quality.

It’s a mule or a horse, and you’ll know when you come out and stroll around. According to Huawei’s plan, Huawei will build three sub-brands with BAIC, GAC, and Changan Automobile. The two parties will launch a series of vehicles in the future. These vehicles will gather the energy of Huawei and its partners. And the upcoming debut is the cooperation with BAIC ARCFOX Polar Fox Alpha S Huawei HI version. According to the news ahead, the relevant configuration of the Alpha S Huawei HI version includes but is not limited to: 3 FOV horizontal 120° × vertical 25° lidar 9 camera vision: 1 long-distance monocular + 1 medium-distance binocular + 1 short-distance monocular Eye + 4 side view + 1 rear view 6 millimeter wave radars: 1 long-range radar at the front and rear + 4 corner radars, 12 ultrasonic radar high-precision maps + V2X computing terminal assisted driving platform has 400 TOPS of computing power, of course. Whether Huawei’s autonomous driving solution can stand up or not requires time and market testing. Let’s wait and see.

Tesla’s autopilot is just like that. Xu Zhijun said that on the one hand to keep up the heat, and on the other hand, he found a more clear target for the public to accept. When have you seen Tesla release any videos about driving hours without intervention in the city? No, I dare say that Tesla’s autonomous driving technology is inferior to Didi. Didn’t you expect it? At any rate, Didi has published a five-hour non-interventional driving video in the urban area on the public account, but Tesla is not afraid. As for Huawei’s autonomous driving, I am very optimistic. The advantage of a full-stack smart car solution is that it is globally controllable and optimized independently. No manufacturer in the world has the capabilities of Huawei. If you don’t believe it, you can check for yourself who can do communications, chips, sensors, systems, and three-electric systems like Huawei. –Well, I’m really almost laughed at by the comments. FSD beta? Hahahaha, can you find me a Tesla official release of any uninterrupted driving video on city road conditions for more than 3 hours? Can’t find it? Then you can find me an autopilot video on the oil pipe for more than 3 hours of uninterrupted city road conditions, right? Can’t find it, right? Come, I will find you a five-hour non-intervention video of Didi city traffic

Certainly better than Tesla. Huawei has set up a target that cannot be defeated, but there are still people who question it? ? Seriously, who is worse than Tesla for autonomous driving companies? Tesla does not have lidar, and it relies on cameras. If you shake the high beam at the Tesla camera a few times at night, it will automatically drive GG directly. Better than Tesla does not mean that Huawei’s autonomous driving technology is very powerful, and there is still a long way to go. Now the pre-installed and mass-produced L3 level autonomous vehicles. The technology alone is not as good as Waymo, Baidu, Pony and other robotaxi companies, but at present, these are two completely different business models or technical paths, and the hardware used is not the same, so there is no comparison. From a broader perspective, Huawei has a lot of automotive-related technical reserves, including but not limited to automotive chips, in-vehicle systems, lidar, including the construction of V2X drive test units, and the ecosystem of IoT, etc., in the future Very interesting. That’s why I think don’t engage in Huawei Inside anymore, just build the car directly. Please also think about it from the perspective of consumers. In the future, your pollen will bring your watch GT and freebuds, holding the sparkling Porsche version of mate40 RS, and then riding on a BAIC new energy arcfox. Is it reasonable? Is this reasonable? Is this reasonable?

Huawei’s Vice Chairman and Rotating Chairman Xu Zhijun talked about the video of Polar Fox Alpha S that will be released in Shanghai, which is very complete and I haven’t found it. As far as the snippets I found, Xu Zhijun’s complete statement is as follows: What the industry needs is not Huawei’s brand of cars, but Huawei’s ICT capabilities to help them build future-oriented cars. Our team told me that they are the best. Of course I expect them to do the best, I don’t know if they brag or not. They said that in the urban area they can achieve 1,000 kilometers of non-interventional autonomous driving, which is much better than Tesla. Therefore, we will select some partners for in-depth cooperation. We will use the “Huawei inside” approach to jointly build some sub-brand cars with car companies to empower some car companies to truly face the future. We have now selected three partners to jointly build the three sub-brands. It should start from the fourth quarter of the end of this year when a series of cars will be launched. Better than Tesla, Huawei will launch the automotive sub-brand “Huawei inside.” Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun said that in my personal opinion, this way of expression is different from “Xu Zhijun said that Huawei’s autonomous driving is better than Tesla.” Of course, different people have different opinions on how to judge. In response to Xu Zhijun’s speech, my personal opinion is: If the data of 1,000 kilometers of urban areas without intervention is true, it is indeed a very good result for mass-produced cars. At this stage, Huawei’s assisted driving capabilities may indeed surpass Tesla, but considering the differences in software and hardware, this comparison may not be fair to Tesla. The performance of Huawei’s assisted driving capabilities will ultimately depend on the product. There have always been two ideas in the industry for how to realize autonomous driving in the true sense: a new car-making force represented by Tesla, equipped with a large number of sensors to collect data on mass-produced cars, and the goal is to gradually evolve from L2; Internet companies represented by Waymo and Baidu are collecting data through self-built fleets in an attempt to step into the L4 ranks; the technical paths of the two are also different: the former considers the high cost of early lidar and mass production is unrealistic, so Focusing on visual recognition solutions, companies such as Weilai and Xiaopeng have only recently begun to consider assembling lidar. Since the latter’s self-built fleet is relatively insensitive to cost, it has been equipped with lidar from the beginning to take the road of multi-sensor fusion. In terms of results, the two routes also have their own gains: the bottom-up new car-making faction has a large number of cars running on the road, which can not only collect massive data, but also reduce driving fatigue in some scenarios (high speed). Improve consumer experience. However, the bottom-up faction currently has no mass-produced vehicles equipped with lidar on the road, and is limited by the configuration of cost cameras, millimeter-wave radars and other sensors. Therefore, the current mileage without intervention in urban road conditions is still very limited. The factions of Internet companies that are holding high are generally setting up fleets to conduct a large number of road tests, and the mileage of autonomous driving without intervention has been amazing. For example, Baidu has achieved an average intervention of 30,000 kilometers in 2019. Now the data of companies such as Baidu and Waymo will only be stronger. However, high-ranking teams are generally equipped with extremely luxurious hardware sensors, and the cost of a car optical lidar system is generally tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Such a high-cost mass-produced car is obviously unacceptable, resulting in a somewhat “high and low score” in the current performance. Therefore, if Huawei can really intervene once every 1,000 kilometers in the urban area, it is indeed a very good result for mass-produced cars. As far as I know, Huawei has invested a lot of time in autonomous driving, and there is also a fleet of road tests. But to be honest, this “one thousand kilometers without intervention” result, I personally think that the average result of the urban test scene is more likely, does not mean that similar performance can still be achieved under extremely complex conditions such as entrances and exits of vegetable markets. I would like to remind everyone that the current automatic driving is still L2 in nature, and drivers need to stay focused at all times and be ready to take over at any time. It should be said that whether it is Huawei or Weilai/Xiaopeng, it may not be fair to compare the assisted driving capabilities with Tesla at this stage. Judging from the current information, the upcoming Polar Fox Alpha S is equipped with 3 Huawei self-developed 96-line lidars. And because of the radical attitude of founder Musk, Tesla has always been relatively repulsive of lidar. If Tesla insists not to use lidar, it will have inherent disadvantages in terms of perception hardware. From a software perspective, FSD Beta, the latest result of Tesla’s algorithm, is currently not widely pushed. From Tesla’s point of view, I personally think that it may be a top priority to check the code carefully and solve the brake problem. From this perspective, even if it really surpasses Tesla, there is no need to make a fuss. For details, let’s wait until the mass-produced car is on the market.

It’s normal for executives to brag. Is it possible to say that we are willing to bow down? Isn’t that great? Anyway, it’s going to be posted in two days, and you’ll know if it’s a mule or Ma. To be honest, there are no explosive usage scenarios for automatic driving. At most, it is used at high speeds. It is usually used for parking. There is not much difference between everyone. I now have a pain point. I use the vibrato at home on weekends to see delicious or fun places. If there is a location, it can be transferred to my car with one click. I click to start, and the car will automatically drive out of the parking lot in my unit. Waiting for me at the entrance of the building, the air conditioner is automatically turned on, so that I can go downstairs and get on the bus directly. When I get home, I will turn on the air conditioner in my house, adjust it to the same temperature, send me downstairs in the unit, and then go by myself. The parking lot is so simple that it is a requirement, please realize it quickly. Whoever can do it first, I think who is better.

Don’t say anything else, Huawei will make big moves this month, wait and see!
In addition, after cooperating with Huawei for so many years, Huawei’s goals are basically reliable, and the industries that Huawei enters are basically champions.
In terms of autonomous driving, Huawei’s AI, communications, radar, and chips are all top in the industry. I personally think that Huawei is not bragging.

I think it doesn’t matter whether this sentence is the original sentence or not, because this sentence is almost always true. It’s not that Huawei is awesome, but Tesla’s autopilot is really bad, and there have been too many accidents. Now they don’t dare to call autonomous driving, and they’re called assisted driving.

Objective is impossible to be objective. How to objectively evaluate something that hasn’t come out yet? Tesla is now equipped with assisted driving. How many vehicles have already driven and how many miles have helped Tesla to continue research and development? Before talking about transcendence, let’s take a look at when Tesla started its first car on the road. Take Huawei’s own example. Starting with mate10, Huawei’s mobile phone imaging system has begun to compete with Samsung and Apple. After several years of hard work and iteration in the m and p series, photography has almost surpassed. However, there is still a gap in video compared to Apple. If it develops normally, it will be a matter of time before the entire imaging system surpasses Apple. Take your time, don’t make big news just thinking about coming up.

In fact, in terms of autonomous driving, Chinese manufacturers are more open-minded than Tesla. While Tesla is still tweaking whether to use lidar, domestic manufacturers have begun to use Beidou centimeter-level positioning, 5G base station precise positioning, and Internet of Vehicles to communicate vehicle information to assist autonomous driving systems. Although Tesla has a first-mover advantage in intelligent recognition of road conditions, this advantage is also being pursued by domestic intelligent AI technology. So I think it’s only a matter of time before domestic autonomous driving is better than Tesla. Huawei’s investment in AI is relatively early in China. Since the actual car is about to be released, the real chapter will be available at that time. Even Huawei’s marketing is always incapable of getting rid of domestic ills.

From the perspective of cost control and Huawei’s 96-line lidar, yes. But as we all know, Huawei’s hardware is really awesome, and software is really good. Autopilot seems to be more important in addition to hardware support.
So who is better for the comprehensive experience? To be verified.
ps, for car building, Huawei’s comprehensive solution for battery-motor charging piles is really awesome.
