Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) and Huawei Technology Co. Ltd (Huawei) signed an agreement to set up a joint Connected Vehicle (C-V2X) Research Group. The signing ceremony was held in WUXI, during the World Internet of Things Expo 2018.
As recently as last week on 15 September 2018, ASTRI and Huawei jointly demonstrated a series of successful Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) test cases at the World Internet of Things Expo 2018. Sponsored by the Wuxi Municipal Commission of Economy and Informatisation, the Commission of Public Security, and the Jiangsu Provincial Government, the Expo took place in Wuxi, China — the world’s first city-level C-V2X application demonstration site. The site spans around 170 km2 and covers most area of Wuxi city. The project is also supported by the Chinese Academy of Information and Communications Technology, China Mobile, and a number of manufacturers including Audi and FAW.
The test was conducted near the Taihu Expo Centre in Taihu, Wuxi, on about six kilometres of open roads with six open crossings. 17 successful tests of typical application fields based on C-V2X were conducted, including forward collision warning, intersection collision warning, left turn auxiliary, vehicle blind area or lane change warning, road danger risk warning, speed limit warning, speed guidance based on signal lights, warning of congestion ahead, warning of pedestrian crossing in blind areas, and warning of on-ramp vehicles.
Together, they will help build the commercial intelligent transportation system in the Hong Kong-Macau-Guangdong Greater Bay area.”
