Huawei has introduced its OceanConnect IoV platform that offers multiple solutions to digitize vehicles and offer a new whole mobility experience. The company says that its new OceanConnect IoV platform is an integration between ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and the automotive industry. Huawei has termed this new technology as the 'digital engine' of intelligent and connected vehicles and offers four key services in the form of enablers through the new OceanConnect IoV. First is the connectivity enabler that ensures millions of reliable connections so that the vehicles stay connected in a secure manner. The OceanConnect IoV also has a data enabler that records data from the vehicles such as driving behaviour and vehicle conditions and on the basis of this information, the platform creates a Digital Twin of people and vehicles on the cloud. On the basis of accurate analysis of this information, the platform offers service recommendations and intelligent content distribution.
The third service is the ecosystem enabler that ensures third-party content and applications are integrated into the system taking automobile manufacturers as the priority. This helps the automobile manufacturers control their digital assets in a more efficient way. Last but not the least, the Huawei OceanConnect IoV also makes sure that the vehicles will be able to communicate with each other. For this, the platform will be developed in cooperation with Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and the company claims that the future transportation system will be safe, intelligent and efficient.
