Self-driving cars use an array of cameras, radar, and lidar to avoid crashing into things, but Chinese tech company Huawei claims to have simplified things.

"Huawei is committed to making advances in Artificial Intelligence technology within our smartphones, and the Mate 10's AI powered Kirin 970 chip is outstanding at object recognition", said Louie Hu, marketing manager, consumer business group Huawei New Zealand.

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro may be facing an uphill battle in the U.S. market, but that doesn't stop it from being a fantastic, capable smartphone. All thanks to AI-powered Kirin 970 chipset which enabled Mate 10 Pro to avoid an obstacle while driving a auto, as revealed in a video presented by Huawei.

"After achieving this in just five weeks, we are so excited about the possibilities for our future technology". Huawei is not working on any driverless cars, its actually showing the world what Mate 10 pro is capable of.

The "RoadReader" feature introduced by Huawei for Mate 10 Pro can control Porsche Panamera which was build up by phone's remote controls. As you can see in the video below, the test was conducted to drive a vehicle towards a "cute" dog sitting in place down the track, with the phone recognizing it and then making a decision on how to avoid it.

The RoadReader project by Huawei will be presented at MWC from 26th to 27th February 2018.

Delegates will be invited to test "drive" the auto themselves, teaching it to identify and manoeuvre around certain objects.
