Huawei will develop 5G radar for autonomous cars

(Sharecast News) - Huawei Technologies will utilise its 5G technology to develop radar for self-driving cars, its deputy chairman told a conference, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
The Chinese tech manufacturer is looking to extend its role in the auto industry by building an"ecosystem" of car-equipped sensors.

Xu Zhijun, current holder of the company's rotating chairmanship, told a Beijing conference on intelligent connected vehicles on Tuesday that Huawei plans to use its 5G know-how to develop millimeter-wave radar and laser radar.

Millimeter-wave radar and laser radar sensors are used by self-driving vehicle manufacturers to collect information from a vehicle's surroundings.

It was unclear what the timeframe for development of those products would be.

Huawei's move comes as China struggles to stay in the race with the US to develop self-driving vehicles. In April, it launched 5G communications hardware for the automotive industry.
