On March 25th, the 8th China Electric Vehicle Hundred People Forum 2022 “Cloud Forum” was officially launched in Beijing. On the first day of the conference, the “Double Intelligence Forum” with the theme of “Promoting the Coordinated Development of Intelligent Cars and Smart Cities” opened.
Guo Shougang, Deputy Director of the Equipment Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, stated that with the vigorous development of the new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation, the integration of technology in the fields of automobiles, energy, transportation, information and communications is accelerating. Electrification, networking, and intelligence have become the trend and trend of global automotive industry development.
Intelligent connected vehicles integrate various transformative technologies such as the Internet, big data, and artificial intelligence, promoting cars to transform from a simple means of transportation to a mobile smart terminal, energy storage unit, and digital space. The world’s automobile powers are strengthening strategic planning, increasing policy support, and major multinational car companies and technology giants are also increasing innovation investment, and the industrial development process is obviously accelerating.
To promote the coordinated development of smart city infrastructure and intelligent connected vehicles, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology jointly organized the double smart pilot work, and after expert evaluation and on-site investigation, a total of 16 cities were selected in two batches.
Each pilot city has developed and improved work plans, jointly promoting the pilot work to achieve a good start: Beijing is accelerating the construction of “multi-pole integration” smart infrastructure, and plans to complete the transformation of more than 300 intersections in the core area of Yizhuang, covering 60 square kilometers before the end of the year. Wuhan City is using intelligent infrastructure to accelerate the construction of the Vehicle City Network platform, and other cities have also launched many good experiences.
While promoting the double smart pilot work, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is also accelerating the demonstration of intelligent connected vehicle road tests:
As of now, more than 5,000 kilometers of test roads have been opened nationwide, with a safe testing distance of more than 10 million kilometers, driving more than 3,500 kilometers of intelligent road transformation and upgrading.
Guo Shougang stated that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, as the competent authority of the automobile industry, will be a strong backing for industrial development. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will continue to make the development of intelligent connected vehicles an important strategic direction, adhere to the development route of “single-vehicle intelligence + networked empowerment,” continue to strengthen top-level design, continuously improve the policy and regulatory system, coordinate the promotion of infrastructure construction, and accelerate the demonstration and application of scale for the high-quality development of the industry. Create a good environment actively.
