Huawei HiLens

Huawei HiLens is an AI-enabled platform providing device-cloud synergy capabilities for common users, AI application developers, and software and hardware vendors. It consists of AI inference cameras and a cloud development platform, placing skill development, device deployment and management, data management, and skill market all on one portal, so that users can easily develop AI skills and push them to computing devices.


Device-Cloud Synergy

Devices work with cloud-based algorithm models to quickly improve computing precision. In the device-cloud synergy mode, the volume of data that needs to be stored on the cloud is reduced, benefiting customers with lower storage costs.

One Stop

Unified skill development framework, encapsulation of basic components, easy-to-use skill development and verification platform.

Added Convenience

Automatic device adaptation, one-click deployment, and powerful cloud data management of HiLens mean that personnel do not need to concern themselves with the details about devices at the underlying layer.

Extensive AI Skills

The skill market presets extensive sets of AI skills, such as human figure recognition and vehicle detection. Developers can also share customized skills to the market.
