Chinese automaker testing 5G deployment in vehicles

06 January 2020

SAIC-GM-Wuling (SGMW) has launched an automotive program to deploy 5G technology in intelligent connected vehicles.

SGMW has automotive sales exceeding 20 million units and launched a new brand late last year called New Baojun, which is being billed as the first intelligent connect car equipped with 5G cellphone-and-car interconnection technology.

The Huawei HiCar system integrated into the car line supports voice control, home control, fatigue detection, video calling and other smart functions. The car will alert the driver when it detects driver fatigue and can make a video call via the on-board computer as well as start timers on home appliances while still on the road.

SGMW said the New Baojun will be one of a series of 5G-enabled vehicles that will come along in the next few years as 5G proliferates.
