The mapping service is focused for software developers more than end users: applications offering well ordered headings, cab hailing and similar tools will be able to take the benefit.
As indicated by the reports, Huawei is not only busy with building up its own operating framework to conceivably replace Android, it’s additionally got an in-house mapping administration in the pipeline too.
Reported by China Daily, the mapping service is focused for software developers more than end users: applications offering well ordered headings, cab hailing and similar tools will be able to take the benefit.
The new administration is called Map Kit, clearly, and will incorporate help for constant traffic reports just as augmented reality features (maybe like the AR layers that have as of late been included on top of Google Maps).
Russian web access Yandex is being tipped to supply Huawei with the bulk of the mapping information it needs, which will be added to information taken from infrastructure that Huawei as of now has set up.
It’s another fascinating turn with regards to Huawei’s progressing endeavors to set up a security net, should it lose access to ‘Google’s applications and services’ which still may occur as an outcome of the present trade hostility between the US and China.
Lately it appears the US position towards Huawei has mellowed, however the Chinese tech giant clearly needs to get ready for the most noticeably terrible, in the event that something goes wrong.
Revealing a full mapping service is a major test however. Google and Apple remain the big players in the field, normally adding new data to their maps, and driving fleets of cars around the globe to catch the street view imagery.
Contingent upon how the Huawei-Google relationship creates from here, it may be some time before we see Huawei Map Kit show up – yet Huawei is by all accounts considering every contingency in its alternate courses of action.
Well it remains to see how Huawei takes up things further. Stay tuned for further updates.
