    Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On October 10 at HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Bosch, a world-leading auto parts supplier, and Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, announced a formal partnership to speed up the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) in China. The cooperation will make Bosch's IoT Suite software services applied on Huawei Cloud.

    “The demand for IoT solutions in China is increasingly rising. The partnership between Bosch and Huawei Cloud signifies a determined step for Bosch to develop IoT business in one of the fastest-growing IoT markets in Asia,” said Dr. Stefan Ferber, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bosch. He also added that the company expects China's market for IoT platform to grow nearly 70% over the next several years. “We are glad to cooperate with Huawei Cloud and have the chance to offer cloud-based IoT services in China that connect devices, users and businesses.”

    The IoT platform developed by Bosch Software Innovations could connect web-enabled objects to coordinate data exchange across multiple digital services and business modes. The first service made for Chinese consumers via Huawei Cloud shall be the Bosch IoT Remote Manager, a service that is mainly used for managing and controlling gateways, sensors and relevant connected facilities. Other services for the Bosch IoT Suite will be rolled out from 2019.

    Based on the collaboration, the Bosch IoT Suite will deploy services on Huawei Cloud to provide vital solutions, such as the vehicle management solution, for consumers in China. The solution could connect vehicles within their service cycles, offering the technological supports for such cloud-based services as predictive diagnostics and over-the-air software updates. The software is designed to ensure the secure communications between the vehicles, the cloud and the services. Data management could help car manufactures or fleet managers organize and analyze vehicle data and timely update the on-board software.

    With the cooperation extending, Bosch and Huawei intend to jointly launch an integrated end-to-end IoT service. Huawei is currently developing IoT hardware gateways that will be pre-configured with Bosch IoT gateway software and then operated by the Bosch IoT Remote Manager running on Huawei Cloud.

    Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Chinese automaker BYD Company Limited (BYD) said its sales reached 47,913 units in September and totaled 351,571 units for the first nine months. Its PV sales jumped 38% year on year (YoY) to 45,029 units among which 25,019 units were new energy PVs, a remarkable YoY jump of 121%.

    The sales of BYD's new energy PVs rose from 18,203 units in July to 25,019 units in September. For the first three quarters, the automaker saw its NEV sales aggregate 143,418 units, accounting for 40.79% of the total year-to-date (YTD) sales.

    With regard to the sales in September of each model, the sales of the all-new BYD Tang SUV amounted to 10,435 units and orders for the model has by far exceeded 35,000 units. The sales of the BYD Song MAX MPV reached 10,009 units, outnumbering 10,000 units for 11 consecutive months. The all-new BYD Song compact SUV and the Yuan EV360 SUV had sales of 6,303 units and 5,008 units respectively. Additionally, the deliveries of the BYD Qin and Qin pro totaled 6,076 units.

    It is expected that the automaker will see its NEV sales quickly climb onward with the capacity of the newly-launched all-new BYD Song and Qin Pro increasingly growing up. BYD reportedly plans to roll out such NEV products as the BYD Song MAX DM and the all-new Tang EV 500 before 2018 ends.

    Audi taps Huawei to help power self-driving cars in China

    Huawei will develop self-driving technology with Audi for cars that will be sold in China, the two companies announced today. The partnership will focus on creating so-called Level 4 technology, which the Society of Automotive Engineers defines as a car that completely drives itself from start to finish within a specifically designated area.

    The deal is the latest in a now very long line of similar partnerships between car companies and tech companies as the two industries move apace toward the goal of truly autonomous vehicles. The two companies didn’t disclose terms of the deal, and the announcement was light on specifics.

    Huawei did show off an Audi Q7 outfitted with the technology company’s Mobile Data Center (MDC) rig at its Connect 2018 conference this week. The MDC reportedly consists of a number of AI chips, a central CPU, cameras, LIDAR, and it sits on the roof of the car. Huawei also said it will work with Audi on vehicle-to-vehicle communications and connected car solutions.

    For years, China has forced foreign automakers to strike up joint ventures with local companies in order to manufacture cars in the country. But the Chinese government announced earlier this year that it plans to relax those rules, and the automotive landscape is already shifting as a result. Tesla announced this summer that it plans to open a wholly owned factory in Shanghai, and just this week, BMW said it will massively increase its stake in Brilliance Auto Group, which is the German automaker’s partner in China.

    When it comes to autonomous vehicles, though, the Chinese government is still guiding the path of Western companies. It strictly controls the permits required to test self-driving vehicles as well as the number of licenses that allow companies to make digital maps of the country’s roads, which is a crucial piece of the autonomous car puzzle. This has led major automakers like Daimler, Ford, and BMW to partner with Baidu, which is one of just a few companies that has the ability to do both.

    One of the reasons cited for these tight controls is that China’s government views a more free-market approach to be a national security risk. In other words, it doesn’t want foreign companies to own detailed maps of China’s roads, as well as other data, outright. That caution mirrors similar worries in the West about companies like Huawei. Earlier this year, the US essentially banned government employees and contractors from using Huawei handsets or components.

    Audi has reportedly been testing with Huawei in China since September, and it plans to open up an autonomous vehicle development center there in 2019. The automaker developed its own Level 3 system called Traffic Jam Pilot, which allows drivers in Europe to take their hands and eyes off the road while the car handles all driving in most situations. Audi’s parent company, Volkswagen, is developing Level 4 and 5 (complete autonomy with no restrictions) technology with Aurora, a startup founded by the former head of Google’s self-driving car program.

    I guess these multinationals just ignore the US regime's fear mongering. Business is business. Even the US regime cannot stop innovation and development, once it is unleashed.
