China’s Ministry of Natural Resources has taken another significant step towards realizing the country’s ambitious goals of developing intelligent-vehicle technology. The Ministry recently released a comprehensive guideline for the standard system construction of intelligent-vehicle basic maps. This development is expected to help promote the coordinated development of various industries and technologies, and gradually create a standard system of intelligent-vehicle basic maps that meets the needs of China’s technological and industrial development.
The guideline proposes that more than 10 standards for intelligent-vehicle basic maps should be developed in advance. These standards should cover technical requirements and specifications, such as basic general application and data acquisition. The aim is to meet the urgent needs of deep application of intelligent-vehicle basic maps. The guideline emphasizes the importance of standardization in the production, update, application service, quality detection, and safety management of these maps.
China’s Ministry of Natural Resources stresses the need to promote the coordinated development of intelligent-vehicle basic maps and geographic information with various industries, including automobile, information and communication, electronics, transportation, information security, password, and others. The guideline envisages that the establishment of the standard system for intelligent-vehicle basic maps will support autonomous vehicle driving by 2025.
China has set ambitious targets for intelligent-vehicle technology, with the country’s leaders seeking to achieve a leading global position in this field. The development of intelligent-vehicle technology has been identified as a key priority in China’s 14th Five-Year Plan, which runs from 2021 to 2025. The plan envisages significant investments in areas such as 5G, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things to help develop a range of intelligent-vehicle applications.
The development of intelligent-vehicle technology is seen as critical to China’s future growth and competitiveness. With the country’s vast market potential and its commitment to innovation, China has the potential to become a global leader in this field. The release of this guideline for the standard system construction of intelligent-vehicle basic maps is yet another indication of China’s commitment to achieving this goal.
