Collaboration developing China’s ‘Internet of Vehicles’

IBM is collaborating with Beijing TransWiseway Information Technology to build the largest connected vehicles platform in China, which will transform the development of the country’s connected car services industry. The cloud-based platform will use advanced analytics for applications that offer real-time, in-vehicle services to mobile devices, such as weather advisories, traffic alerts and alternate route suggestions. The partners have designed an Internet of Vehicles (IoV) platform to connect millions of trucks, as well as tens of millions of devices and sensors from vehicles. Using IBM ‘Internet of Things’ technologies, the trucks and vehicles are connected to the internet, as well as with each other, on a single IoV platform. Built in the cloud, the IoV platform applies analytics to data from mobile devices and sensor data, instantly turning them into valuable information that drivers and authorities can access via the internet or through a mobile app to improve decision making.

As part of the Chinese government’s traffic safety initiative, IBM will extend TransWiseway’s existing, public IoV platform, which is currently connected with about 300,000 trucks in nine provinces. The aim is to build a commercially viable platform to deliver value added services more broadly to drivers and other third-party organizations, while building in analytics and security capabilities to support millions of additional vehicles in the future. The new IoV platform is expected to connect with 1.5 million trucks next year and ultimately with 10 million in two to three years. TransWiseway and IBM China Development Labs will also set up a joint innovation lab, which will use the IBM MobileFirst application development portfolio, to develop apps that deliver transportation and fleet management services and in-vehicle infotainment. The IoV platform will also allow access to analytics generated from sensor data to enable Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop apps for real-time traffic navigation, incident warnings, vehicle maintenance advisory and driver safety alerts, which will allow transport companies to improve their operational efficiency and reduce costs.
