As the core hub of connecting and unified management of hardware, software and users, the importance of automotive operating systems is becoming more prominent. Establishing a set of independent and controllable vehicle operating systems has become a top priority.
If the industry can form several research and development combinations of the entire industry chain, compete with each other and learn from each other, it will undoubtedly help better promote the development and application of my country’s automotive operating system. Each year, representative members from the automotive field bring some bills, proposals and suggestions.
Fang Yunzhou, the founder and chairman of the Nezha Automobile this year, has attracted much attention to the development and application of China’s independent controllable intelligent automobile operating system development and applications to accelerate the construction of the smart car operating system ecology.
With the rapid advancement of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial changes, software and computing power used in automotive intelligence control have increased rapidly in automotive products. Automobiles are defined by the past with hardware as the main change of software and hardware. Among them, as the core hub of connecting and unified management of hardware, software and users, the importance of automotive operating systems is becoming more prominent.
However, China’s automobile industry does not have an independent operating system. What I have to say is that most domestic car companies still use the Android system. As we all know, in the era of personal computers, the operating system was monopolized by Microsoft Windows; the field of smart phones is two major systems: Android and iOS. iOS was developed by Apple in the United States and was relatively closed; the Android system was developed by Google. Although it was open source, there was still certain risks in terms of security, real -time, and stability.
Therefore, the establishment of an independent and controllable vehicle operating system has become a top priority. From the perspective of market size, China has become a global car production and sales country for more than 10 consecutive years. It is believed that in the future for a long time, this position of China’s automobile market will not change in this position worldwide. The oversized market advantage is the excellent cradle of the operating system for breeding cars.
What’s more, my country’s scientific and technological investment and talent teams are at the forefront of the world’s automotive industry, and have good development conditions for auto original technology.
Especially in terms of intelligent connected cars, my country has been at the forefront of the world, and there is no reason not to develop safe and controllable vehicle operating systems.
From the perspective of technological progress, the global car operating system has not yet matured, and none of the versions that can be applied directly for a long time.
After a century of evolution and iteration, the car has entered the era of intelligence today from early pure mechanical products, across the age of mechanical and electrical integration, and embedded software. The intelligence represented by Tesla is still continuously improved.
In the future, cars will enter the era of ecologicalization of all things. What form will the operating system will not be clearly described at present, and this gives us new opportunities for the development of car operating systems.
Some people have suggested that since the development of the car operating system is so significant, the state simply designated a key enterprise or scientific research units to do it.
The author does not agree with such thoughts. The government supports and includes the research and development of automotive operating systems in the national research and development plan. It is necessary to give funding support, but it must also introduce market mechanisms to make open source systems. The reason is that the car products generally face consumers, that is, the "2C" business, and the industry does not accept exclusive supply. At the same time, because this development work is a "massive" level, it is difficult to keep up with the rhythm of market changes, which is not conducive to promotion and application. It is also necessary to see that although there are advantages in domestic research and development of companies in China, no one has the conditions to expand a single advantage into a comprehensive advantage. However, it is worth trying to achieve a strong union through marketization.
For example, the combination of header companies, software companies, and chip companies, each play its advantages and open up the full chain of software, hardware and vehicle applications.
If the industry can form several such entire industry chain R & D and combinations, compete with each other and learn from each other, it will undoubtedly help better promote the development and application of my country’s automobile operating system. Of course, the establishment of a technical committee of the China Automobile Operation Systems, and formulating the technological development route, system structure, technical standards and technical agreements of China’s automobile operating system, which is also necessary.
It should be emphasized that independent research and development does not mean to build cars behind closed doors.
The car operating system has a strong short -term market demand and needs to start from existing results. Because there are currently no such basic results in China, pursuing pure Sinicization, everything starts from zero, is neither necessary nor conforms to the interests of the industry. Therefore, drawing on international successful experience and integrating international advanced resources should also be the deserved meaning of independent innovation.
What’s more, in the future, China’s car operating system is strong and needs to go out.
