GUANGZHOU -- China's Huawei Technologies looks to roll out a system this year that lets motorists use navigation, voice assistance and other apps from their phones on the digital dashboard in their cars.

Huawei's HiCar platform will allow users to operate the vehicle's air conditioner and doors with their phones while offering a feature to help prevent crashes. These controls go beyond onboard entertainment and require the company to work with automakers.
