  • Vehicle, road and online cloud connectivity can fully verify the urban traffic solution.
  • By the year of 2050, the number of the vehicles will be decreased by 28% and the rate of traffic accident will be decreased by 87%.


Together with the development of big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, the advent of 5G will give birth to new technologies, new business models and new industry forms.

  • Crucial Moment of Profound Changes:

As the Third Mobile Space for the terminal of IoT, Intelligent Connected Vehicle has become the new species. Benefiting from the scale advantage of China’s internet business and the world’s largest automobile market, Chinese automobile brands have been at the forefront of the intelligent network technology.

Geely Auto, relying on its deep understanding of Chinese consumers and China’s road environment, has developed autonomous driving technology, which is more suitable for the market. With its globalisation strategy, Geely’s ambition is to become a global leader in autonomous driving technology, and create a travel experience beyond expectations for users.

What is the ultimate goal of intelligent driving? It will be an ‘intelligent community with a shared future’ consisting of  safety, health, human-car interaction.

  • The Developing Tide of Intelligent Vehicle in China:

Nowadays, Chinese automotive brands are more tightly grasping the opportunity, speed up the industrial distribution in the field of intelligent vehicles. It is determined to be leading the development of the global automotive intelligent network technology…

In order to speed up the solution of urban traffic congestion, improve the efficiency of transportation system and environmental protection, China has been formulating the corresponding industry strategic planning and the future development goals, to promote the development of car sharing, electrification, and intelligent technology.

From the perspective of the current industrial pattern, OEMs have begun to distribute vehicle-mounted information service products in order to promote product transformation and gain consumers’ favor. At present, the homogeneity of automobile products is relatively serious, and the competition of products of the same level is fierce. Vehicle-mounted information service system has gradually become an important selling point and competitiveness embodiment of automobile models.

  • Geely Auto Forward-looking in Intelligent Network:


In 2016, “Hello, Boyue!” opened the precedent of intelligent interconnection of automobiles in China, bringing users into a new era of intelligent transportation. In 2016, Geely made a strategic investment to establish ECarX Technology, becoming the first pioneer to invest in the core technology practice of the Internet of vehicles in China.

Geely has gathered high-end talents in automotive electronics, semiconductors, Internet, artificial intelligence and other fields to build a dedicated R&D team of nearly 2,000 people. In March 2018, GKUI intelligent ecosystem emerged, leading the development of intelligent interaction technology in the industry.Up to now, more than 22 models under several brands of Geely Holding Group are equipped with GKUI intelligent ecosystem, and the number of users has exceeded 2 million, bringing intelligent net-connected cars into thousands of households.



The transition from single-vehicle intelligence to vehicle-road collaborative multi-intelligence is the key to the future transformation of vehicle networking and smart cities to traffic problems.




  • The Connectivity Between the Vehicle, Cloud and Road:

In Hangzhou Bay area- the Smart City National Demonstration Project in Ningbo, jointly built by Geely Auto and the city government, Geely Auto has realized the RoboTaxi trial operation from the Automotive Research Institute to the ZhongChuang Park. The forward-looking strategic deployment in the field of intelligent network connection has put Geely Auto on the fast track of the development of smart cars and smart cities.

Comprehensive covering 415 acres of closed campus with C – V2X and 5 G communication network, a high precision map is established here. Together with GNSS setting enhancing the base station and the deployment of smart snatched roadside equipment, automotive equipment can realize holographic perception and fusion calculation of road traffic, which completes the vehicle, road connectivity, cloud three end, to realize the speed of 70 km/h collaborative self-driving.

The 5 km of open road including 19 city comprehensive application scenarios, based on the principle of adjust measures to local conditions, combining multiple sensor information fusion technology and computing technology. It can realize real-time and full spatio-temporal perception of all traffic factors, such as dynamic target, road state and traffic state, and provide rich and comprehensive road condition information and decision-making basis for vehicle-road collaborative automatic driving.

The autonomous driving cars are lining up at Bin Hai Road

Pilot from the angle of the urban infrastructure construction. By applying additional network facilities, the on-board hardware configuration is significantly simplied. Enhancing efficient environmental awareness information and computing resources sharing can effectively solve the problems from the traditional single vehicle intelligence, such limited perception scope, high hardware cost.

By taking advantage of China’s 5G communication and infrastructure construction, Hangzhou Bay New Area is committed to becoming the world’s leading 5G-MEC and IVICS collaborative autonomous driving demonstration zone, and continues to invest in research on the innovative application of vehicle-road collaborative technology in smart cities, so as to explore the development direction of future urban smart road construction.

Smart infrastructure will serve as a powerful adhesive between vehicles, roads and users, laying an important foundation for sustainable transportation strategies to ensure safety, improve efficiency, improve the environment and save energy for the integrated transportation system of smart cities in the future. By 2050, the number of cars is expected to fall by 28%, the traffic accident rate by 87% and transport times by 30%.

In the future, the road infrastructure construction, traffic management and transportation mode of the city will usher in the revolution brought by vehicle-road collaboration technology


√ Realizing the digital transformation of urban transportation

Relying on the infrastructure construction such as intelligent road side/vehicle-mounted terminal and intelligent perception equipment, and utilizing the digital technology of dynamic information of people, vehicles and roads, the digital integrated management of dynamic, static and semi-dynamic traffic elements is realized, and an intelligent traffic transportation management system based on urban road digitization is built

√ Innovation road active control and collaborative safety

Through wireless communication and Internet technology, terminal equipment such as road side sensors can be used to support the collection, fusion and sharing of all traffic factors, and the synergistic effect of intelligent vehicles and intelligent roads can be exerted to eventually form decision information and early warning information, so as to realize the active control service and collaborative safety service for road.

√ Realize the integration of vehicle-road cloud traffic management

Car synergy technology into urban road and traffic management process, using cars, road, cloud two-way interactive information means to realize high integration of the transportation system elements, pay attention to the people, vehicles, roads, and social environment under the information technology of coordinated control and integrated management, form a standard, highly effective, the intensification of the urban traffic management mode.

√ Build smart city life in the future

Intelligent transportation is an effective way to realize the leapfrog development of transportation industry and relieve the pressure of resources and environment. The future transportation is not the change of traditional transportation mode and means, but the radical change of transportation service mode. By introducing vehicle-road collaboration technology, smart infrastructure and mechanisms into the whole process of urban management, we can solve the problem of urban congestion, make urban operation more efficient and convenient, and make people’s production and life more comfortable and convenient.
