DigiTruck mobile digital classroom
In 2019, we helped initiate the DigiTruck mobile digital classroom project, which provides future-orientated learning opportunities for children in remote and rural areas.
In Kenya, over 75% of the population live in rural areas, and less than half of all Kenyans have access to the Internet, even though wireless networks cover more than 93% in this country. Remote communities deserve the benefits brought by digital technologies and connectivity, but it's hard to obtain corresponding training and services. In France, there are still more than 13 million people not connected to the Internet, and as a result many lack the digital skills required by employers, which hinders career opportunities and undermines economic growth. In France's poorer regions, uneven development and scarce educational resources lead the youth unemployment rate to stand at 38%, twice the level of wealthier regions.
DigiTruck was renovated into a 12-metre mobile digital classroom consisting of laptops, LED screens, VR glasses, smartphones, routers, and other smart devices. The space is even smarter than you might imagine, as it is supported by an independent, grid-free solar energy, making it possible to teach in extremely remote areas.
DigiTruck tends to stay in the same location for a month, providing free learning resources and online classes for local residents, including rural teacher training, job training, and remote "trips" to world heritage sites.
Since 2019, Huawei has partnered with Close the Gap (a non-government organisation in Belgium), Safaricom (a network provider), GSMA, and other organisations, to carry out the DigiTruck mobile digital classroom project. As of September 30, 2022, the project had trained 2457 people in Kenya, with 40,822 total training hours, and 3100 people across 19 cities in France, with over 1500 total training hours.
TrackAI provides automatic, responsive, and accurate visual health detection for children and infants as young as six months old, by utilising Huawei smart devices and AI capabilities. From 2019 to October 2022, this project supported preliminary eye health inspections for over 4700 children.

The story behind BabyBus is quite heartwarming. The app company's CEO, Tang Guangyu, had just celebrated the 2nd birthday of his first child in 2010 when he learnt that his child could not distinguish between colours. He resolved to do something to help. After discussing with Lu Xueming and the other founding team members, they decided to develop an app that could help children recognise colours by leading them to fill in colours for different scenes. This became BabyBus's first product, and three months later, Tang Guangyu's two-year-old baby was able to distinguish between colours.
A thank-you letter sent to Lu Xueming from an American user described how BabyBus helped open his child's mind to new possibilities. "My 3-year-old toddler has been diagnosed with autism. He didn't play with other kids and was not comfortable at school. Things changed after I bought a US$39 device installed with BabyBus. He's really into the app, and can even talk with some of the cartoon characters. Now he can express himself like other kids. I am so grateful for that. Thank you!" BabyBus has been committed to providing free and educational content for young children from its beginnings, and it will continue to act on this mission.
BabyBus hopes to expand to encompass software and content services by making use of the unique capabilities of HMS, and to design and develop more polished products that are aligned with children's worldviews. They plan to deepen their partnership with Huawei in areas like data cloud storage.
Yang Xiangyong is one of the 4 million HUAWEI Developer Experts (HDE), and the creator of the AR English learning app Magic ABC. The app has been released on HUAWEI AppGallery and shortlisted in the Huawei AR/VR App Innovation Contest as well as for the Huawei Shining-Star Programme.
The app was developed in February 2020, the worst point of the pandemic outbreak in Wuhan, China. Quarantined at home, Yang didn't want his school-age daughter who had already missed school to fall behind on her English learning, so he decided to develop an English-learning app tailored to young children.
Yang had developed some tool apps before, but completing AR technology integration and UI design independently can be a difficult and time-consuming process, with the first attempt often failing. Fortunately, after communicating with the Huawei technical support team, he was able to integrate the HMS Core AR Engine in less than a week, which allowed his app to quickly identify the AR plane and accurately track user movement. This means that even when a mobile phone or tablet is in the hands of a child bouncing up and down, magic ABC can still implement its AR function and display its virtual characters Andy and Cece in the physical world.
Yang used the time saved on development to polish the app content and user experience, with the goal of making learning fun and efficient for children. He also received great advice from Eva, such as to display letters in different colours, which has made the app more appealing to children. To Yang, Magic ABC is as much Eva's app as it is his.
"Breath in, breath out. Life has its signals. And recording these signals can give us insight on our health status," said Zhang Shuo, who's studying medical signal processing and analysis. Zhang has been interested in the life sciences since childhood, and has made AI-powered smart healthcare his passion.
He is currently developing two apps independently, HeartGuard and Futeyes, which use AI technologies to monitor body features in real time.
"For an app to evolve from theory to reality, tons of challenges need to be cracked. Stumbling upon Huawei has been such a lucky break," said Zhang. Zhang was awarded at the 2018 DIGIX GLOBAL AI CHALLENGE, and has since become a developer in Huawei's HMS ecosystem. "I was working on a project on my own, but the pandemic meant that I couldn't access the hardware I needed. Huawei provided tremendous support, giving me access to their HUAWEI CLOUD Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) for development and testing, and even arranging for an engineer to help resolve my issues. Without them, things wouldn't have been gone nearly so smoothly."
HeartGuard is linked to the HUAWEI HiAI Foundation and uses the Neural-network Processing Unit (NPU) to accelerate algorithms. Compared with the Central Processing Unit (CPU) operator and engine, the NPU improves algorithm's real-time performance and delivers more accurate results.
Zhang was invited to serve as a HUAWEI Developer Expert (HDE) and certified lecturer for HUAWEI Developers Training. He also participated in the developer contest held by Huawei to compete with and learn from other developers. "I hope to interact through code, and enrich lives through data," he said.
