BEIJING — China’s Huawei Technologies aims to develop driverless-car technology by 2025, an executive said, as the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker diversifies its business in the face of U.S. sanctions.

“Our team’s goal is to reach true driverless passenger cars in 2025,” Wang Jun, senior executive at Huawei’s smart vehicle unit, told an industry conference.

Dozens of startups, automakers and large technology firms such as Internet search leader Baidu and Apple are accelerating work on self-driving vehicle systems which are expected to bring a sea change to the transportation industry.

Huawei has pivoted to smart electric vehicles after its global smartphone business was hammered by U.S. sanctions.

The previous Trump administration labelled the company a threat to U.S. national security – a charge it denies.
