Huawei has launched a new Internet of Vehicles (IoV) platform designed to allow the development of intelligent and connected vehicles.

The OceanConnect IoV Platform is designed to support hundreds of millions of connections and millions of simultaneous connections to support the evolution of intelligent transportation. The platform will help automotive manufacturers pursue digital transformation by introducing capabilities including cloud-based data analytics.

Specifically, the platform analyzes vehicle big data such as vehicle conditions and driving behaviours to enable the intelligent distribution of content as well as service recommendations based on an analysis of driving behaviors and travel scenarios.

The IoV platform will also be developed in tandem with vehicle-to-everything (V2X) connectivity to enable vehicles to communicate with each other and their environment, helping to pave the way for the development of intelligent and safe transport systems of the future.

“The Internet of Vehicles (IoV) leads to in-depth convergence of ICT and the automobile industry. The IoV empowers connected vehicles and intelligent services which enables faster digital transformation for the automobile industry,” Huawei president of cloud core network products Ma Haixu said. “During this important transition, Huawei is dedicated to building a fully connected, intelligent world that connects people, vehicles, roads, and other things. Huawei is proud to become a preferred strategic partner of global automobile manufacturers.”

The first vehicle developed on the OceanConnect platform, the DS 7 CROSSBACK, has been launched in China and Europe, the company said.
