The Intelligent Transportation and IoV Industry Development Summit Forum commenced on Sept 6 in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, gathering over 200 industry leaders from home and abroad.
IoV, also known as the internet of vehicles, is the specific application of IoT technology in smart transportation.
This year's forum, themed around "Creating a new era for connected vehicles by 5G and smart technologies," discussed several pertinent issues, such as the safety of automated driving, the application of cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X), as well as the integration of IoT and smart transportation.
As an important component of the World Internet of Things (IoT) Expo, the forum has been held for four consecutive years in Wuxi's Binhu district since 2016.
The national smart transportation test base in Binhu district, which has realized the application of LTE-V2X at the city-level, is the largest place for open testing of IoV at the city-level in China.
