Recently, when attending the 2021 World Artificial Intelligence Conference, Huawei Intelligent Driving President Su Qing talked about Tesla. He said that Tesla’s accident rate is very high. , in fact, the types are almost the same. Su Qing explained that using the word murder may sound serious to everyone, but in fact, think about it, if a machine enters human society and coexists with human beings, the machine will definitely cause an accident, which is actually murder. It can be seen that the words of Huawei executives against Tesla are very sharp.
In Su Qing’s view, as machines enter human society and coexist with human beings, machine accidents will definitely happen, which is no different from “killing”, and it is very likely to happen. Su Qing said that if automatic users begin to trust more advanced automatic driving technology, the possibility of accidents will increase. It is currently very difficult to handle all scenarios through L4 autonomous driving. As for Huawei’s technology for autonomous driving at this stage, Su Qing said that Huawei will not fully delegate power, and needs some technical means to supervise autonomous driving, to avoid autonomous driving to deal with some extreme situations, thereby reducing the incidence of accidents. As for when Huawei will be able to achieve fully autonomous driving, Su Qing said that it will get through the dangerous period of the next 5-10 years, so that autonomous driving can land smoothly in a safe and reliable way. That is to say, in Su Qing’s view, more so-called autonomous driving technology can only be used as an assisted driving technology, and it still needs to be operated by humans. The real driverless driving is still far away from us, at least not yet. One can guarantee complete safety.
Coincidentally, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently said that developing a set of fully autonomous driving technology is much more difficult than he thought, which is also a rare opportunity for this reckless genius to let go of autonomous driving technology. In fact, Musk announced as early as 2018 that he would launch the autopilot system on Tesla, and then postponed it to 2019, but it has not been publicly launched until today, which shows that Tesla is actually very concerned about its own autopilot technology. Still have doubts.
Of course, from a certain perspective, Su Qing’s speech this time is also Huawei’s current attitude towards Tesla. Huawei has really put a lot of effort into autonomous driving in recent years. As early as 2019, Huawei launched Huawei’s L4-level full-stack intelligent driving solution (ADS), which really shocked the world at that time and was also optimistic about the industry. For Huawei, the purpose of having a system is to sell it! Only by letting more car companies use Huawei’s intelligent driving system can prove Huawei’s success.
Which car companies use Huawei systems today? For some models of Seris, Sihao and BAIC, Seris has in-depth cooperation with Huawei, and even Seris’ cars are sold in Huawei’s showrooms, but it is not difficult to find that these brands have nothing but BAIC. A big brand, which is not good for Huawei Smart Driving.
Some people have said that Huawei’s intelligent driving system is currently the best intelligent driving system in China. I believe everyone admits this, but why are most car companies not interested in this system?
You must know that most car companies, especially large models, already have their own driving systems. Even domestic car manufacturers, such as BYD, Geely, Great Wall and SAIC, have their own technical teams doing this. Power even more so. Car companies with intelligence as their blueprint have made plans for their own systems for more than ten years. After ten years, the system will be upgraded on the existing basis. Huawei’s system may not be able to enter large car companies in a short period of time.
