Jean Leflour of Groupe PSA

Huawei and Groupe PSA showcased a DS 7 CROSSBACK, the first connected vehicle resulting from their partnership covering all of the Group’s connected vehicles, announced in November 2017. Debuting in Europe at Huawei’s exhibition booth during HANNOVER MESSE 2018, DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first vehicle to use Groupe PSA’s Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP) and is equipped with Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform and Cloud services supported by Huawei, giving customers access to new connected services.

Using Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform, Groupe PSA has built its Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP) for its connected vehicles, which is deployed globally using Cloud services supported by Huawei. DS 7 CROSSBACK, launched this month in China, is the first vehicle to benefit from the CVMP.

Customers can access new services such as connected navigation, natural language voice recognition and a connected service portal via the vehicle’s dashboard screen. The vehicle’s maintenance status and the history of journeys and driving styles are also accessible from the customer’s smartphone.

New services for private customers and fleet managers will be regularly added to these features. They include infotainment services, remote software updates and navigation mapping, personal assistant, remote vehicle diagnostic and maintenance functions, and services useful for car hire companies, fleet managers and carsharing operators.

Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform underpins Huawei’s Connected Car Solution. This solution helps to develop connected cars, smart homes and smart cities, giving users access to an array of services designed to facilitate daily life.All digital interactions between the car and the cloud are secure; customer and car data are encrypted, and their integrity, authenticity and confidentiality are guaranteed.

Huawei is committed to creating an open and flexible connected car infrastructural platform that can scale to manage the life cycle of cars, connecting physical car assets to the cloud in a secure, reliable, and efficient way to allow new digital capabilities for drivers and businesses. Cloud services supported by Huawei will be used for all Groupe PSA connected vehicles in all regions where these vehicles are marketed.

Jean Leflour, SVP Connected Vehicle & Services Architecture Strategy, Groupe PSA, said: “By deploying its new platform connecting the vehicle to the Internet of Things(IoT), Groupe PSA enriches its service offering and makes the mobility easier for all its customers. With Huawei, well known for its innovation capacity, we are pleased to show today the first tangible result of our partnership providing customers with a new experience enabled by the CVMP. DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first vehicle to benefit from this joint project, which will ultimately be rolled out to all group vehicles.”

Leon He, head of Automotive Business Unit of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, commented: “The key to successful digital transformation of car manufacturers is to build a digital cloud platform. Based on the platform, car manufacturers, ecosystem developers, and industry application partners are gathered to jointly sell vehicle products and services across countries in the global market and provide personalised travel services to car owners and users.”

HANNOVER MESSE 2018 will be held from April 23-27 in the Hannover Exhibition Centre, Germany. Huawei’s booth is located at D18 of Hall 6. For more information about Huawei’s products and solutions to be highlighted at HANNOVER MESSE 2018, please click here.
