Huawei, the Chinese Tech Giant aims to reach driverless car technology by 2025

The massive Chinese Corporation Huawei plans to spend a billion dollars in self-driving and electric car technologies in an effort to compete with Tesla and other self-driving car companies. They aim to develop passenger car technology by the year 2025 as Huawei diversifies its business in the face of U.S. sanctions.

"Our team's goal is to reach true driverless passenger cars in 2025," Wang Jun, a senior executive at Huawei's smart vehicle unit, told an industry conference.

Huawei initially plans to partner with three automakers- BAIC Group, Chongqing Changan #Automobile, and Guangzhou Automobile Group to launch their self-driving cars with Huawei as a sub-brand.

What is a self-driving car?

Self-driving or #driverless cars or autonomous cars are a vehicle that uses different sensors, cameras, radar as well as AI to navigate between locations without a human driver. In order to qualify, the car must be able to travel to a designated location on any road without human involvement. Therefore, significantly fewer traffic collisions would be one of the major benefits of using a self-driving car.
