Huawei will develop radar for autonomous cars

The Huawei will use 5G technology to develop radar for autonomous cars. The move is part of the Chinese giant's attempt to play a bigger role in the auto industry.

Despite all the investment in autonomous vehicles by large companies, experts say it will take years for the industry to reach "level 4" autonomy. This is the level at which vehicles will be able to handle all aspects of driving without human intervention.

The radars will be installed by Huawei, both the millimeter wave as those laser, are used by the autonomous vehicle manufacturers to collect information from the environment around the vehicle.
