According to Wang Chenglu, the goal of Huawei Hongmeng OS is to use a system to solve all the problems of IoT hardware devices. These include:

  1. To use a system to meet the loading requirements of all hardware devices, and there is no need to customize different systems for different hardware
  2. The IoT hardware is no longer an isolated device. In the entire HongmengOS (HarmonyOS), all the IoT hardware is integrated.
  3. To solve the developer’s problem, and the business logic code written once can be run on different devices.
