Huawei puts data centre into Audi Q7

Huawei puts data centre into Audi Q7One of the first technology solutions to come out of the connected car partnership between Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei and German car maker Audi is a prototype Mobile Data Centre (MDC) installed in a Q7 SUV.

Huawei suggests the collaboration will “lead automatic driving into the fast lane” which we hope was meant as a pun, though enabling self-driving vehicles in urban environments is very much on the agenda.

The tie-up first surfaced in July, with the two companies signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly develop intelligent connected vehicles and associated staff training schemes.Huawei puts data centre into Audi Q7

Neither offered any detail on what form the MDC takes or actually does. But we note that Huawei has been instrumental in formulating the LTE-V mobile communication standard for connected vehicles which gives drivers in China real-time traffic information to traffic light systems and video monitoring at road junctions.

The Audi tie up indicates Huawei may bring that LTE-V standard to Europe (Audi is also testing wireless 5G networks with Ericsson) while boosting Audi’s presence in China.

The partnership is just the latest example of a large ICT supplier joining forces with a car manufacturer to provide the networks, software and applications needed to take connected cars into mainstream use. Microsoft announced a €3.5bn partnership with Audi parent VW earlier this month, Google is working with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and Fujitsu and VMware are collaborating on automotive IoT for example. We expect to see many more emerging in the next couple of years as car makers bring new models to market.
