Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group Co., Ltd., a state-controlled automaker based in Hefei, is carrying out all-round and in-depth collaboration with Huawei on such fields as core sensors for autonomous driving, MDC (Mobile Data Centers), and smart cockpit, the company recently said to reply a question raised on an investor service platform of Shanghai Stock Exchange.
The collaboration between two companies dated back to December 2019 when they inked a framework agreement for the teamwork on intelligent vehicle solutions, enterprise informatization, smart industrial park, and intelligent factory.
