Groupe PSA and Huawei connect

Groupe PSA has built its Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP) for its connected vehicles, using Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform.

DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first vehicle to benefit from the CVMP. Customers can access new services such as connected navigation, natural language voice recognition and a connected service portal via the vehicle’s dashboard screen. The vehicle’s maintenance status and the history of journeys and driving styles are also accessible from the customer’s smartphone.

New services for private customers and fleet managers will be regularly added to these features. They include infotainment services, remote software updates and navigation mapping, personal assistant, remote vehicle diagnostic and maintenance functions, and services useful for car hire companies, fleet managers and carsharing operators.

Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform underpins Huawei’s Connected Car Solution. This solution helps to develop connected cars, smart homes and smart cities, giving users access to an array of services designed to facilitate daily life. Huawei platform will be used for all Groupe PSA’s connected vehicles in all regions where these vehicles are marketed.

Jean Leflour, SVP connected vehicle and services architecture strategy, Groupe PSA, said, ‘By deploying its new platform connecting the vehicle to the Internet Of Things, Groupe PSA enriches its service offering and makes mobility easier for all its customers. With Huawei, well known for its innovation capacity, we are pleased to show today the first tangible result of our partnership providing our customers with a new experience enabled by the CVMP. DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first vehicle to benefit from this joint project, which will ultimately be rolled out to all group vehicles.’
