BEIJING, April 14 (Xinhua) — The Beijing municipal government has
approved the designation of a demonstration zone for boosting the
development of intelligent connected vehicles (ICVs).
According to the blueprint, a planned area of 225 square km in
Yizhuang New Town, the Daxing International Airport area, and six
highway sections in Yizhuang, Daxing District in southern Beijing will
serve as a pilot zone for the initiative.
The pilot zone is the first of its kind in China in terms of testing a
series of management policies suitable for ICVs, which involve road
testing, demonstration application, commercial operation service and
roadside infrastructure construction.
The innovation will also include traffic rules and traffic management of unmanned vehicles on the road.
There are currently 200 public road sections in Beijing open for
testing smart vehicles, totaling 699.58 km with the safety test mileage
exceeding 2.68 million km in total.
The designation of the pilot zone is expected to help promote new
applications, technologies, products and new models of intelligent
network connections. Enditem
