In a first, Huawei has unveiled a technology that uses Artificial Intelligence-enabled smartphone to drive a car that can not only identify objects on the road but make smart decisions to avoid collisions or hitting someone.

In a video released by the China-based technology giant, the driverless Porsche Panamera is controlled by Huawei’s flagship “Mate 10 Pro” smartphone that can “understand its surroundings”.

“Our smartphone is already outstanding at object recognition.

We wanted to see it in a short space of time we could teach it to not only drive a car, but to use its AI capabilities to see certain objects, and be taught to avoid them,” said Andrew Garrihy, Chief Marketing Officer at Huawei Europe.

According to a report in theinquirer.net on Friday, Huawei’s ‘RoadReader’ project “pushed the boundaries of its object recognition technology and put the learning capabilities, speed and performance of its AI-powered devices to the test”.

During the test, the smartphone-driven car did not hit a real dog sitting right in the middle of the road and moved on from the side.

The camera app on the “Mate 10 Pro” can tell the difference between food, pets, landscapes and more.

The foldable design lets the camera system play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the HUAWEI Mate X shows a view finder on both sides so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process, the company said.

As Huawei’s first 5G smartphone, the Mate X runs on the Balong 5000 chipset, which is the world’s first multi-mode 5G processor with 7nm process and thus supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G with a single chip.
