Economic Reporter :
ICT solutions provider Huawei has partnered with German automobile manufacturer Audi for the development of intelligent connected vehicles.
To this end, Huawei and Audi signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a strategic cooperation on Tuesday. The agreement forms a broad partnership between the companies in the two countries initiated by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said a press release today.  Veni Shone, president of LTE Solution, Huawei said, "We are entering a new era of intelligent vehicles that will see the emergence of new technological synergies between information and communications technology and the automotive industries."
"With increased innovation in mobile connectivity, Huawei is committed to transforming the driving experience," Shone added.  The cooperation between Huawei and Audi is intended to facilitate the advancement of intelligent driving and the digitalization of services in the vehicle environment.
The companies have agreed to jointly develop training programmes in order to strengthen the skills of technology experts in both of these areas.  Intelligent connected vehicles allow relevant information to be exchanged between the vehicle and the surrounding environment. To achieve this, cars need a high-quality, stable data connection.
Saad Metz, executive vice-president of Audi China said, "We are intensifying our joint research with Huawei in the area of intelligent connected vehicles. Our aim is to improve safety and optimize traffic flows in order to create intelligent cities."
