PSA plugs into Huawei’s connectivity platform

April 24, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
At the Hannover trade fair, French carmaker Groupe PSA and Chinese telecommunications technology company introduced the first connected vehicle resulting from their development partnership announced in November 2017. The DS7 Crossback is the first vehicle using PSA’s Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP) which in turn is utilizing Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform.

The DS7 Crossback is scheduled for the introduction to the Chinese market in April 2018. The CVMP offers connected navigation, natural speech recognition and a connected service portal similar to GMs OnStar. Users can access the portal through a display screen in the dashboard. In addition, customers can remotely access the maintenance condition of their car as well as route covered and data recording the driver’s performance by means of a smartphone.

PSA said that the feature list will be enhanced regularly by new services for private customers and fleet managers likewise. Examples include infotainment services, software updates and navigation maps as well as personal assistant, remote vehicle diagnostic and maintenance functions, and services useful for car hire companies, fleet managers and carsharing operators. In addition, the companies are planning to develop features like personal assistance solutions, the capability to update software over the air (OTA), vehicle diagnosis and remote maintenance.

 

All digital interactions between vehicle and backend are encrypted and thus secure as are customer and vehicle data. 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 personalized travel services to car owners and users."
