GM China Supports The Idea Of Smart Cities With Intelligent Transportation

GM Executive Vice President and GM China President Matt Tsien recently talked about the importance of intelligent transportation in regards to building smart cities during the Ninth Wuhan Government International Advisory Council Meeting in Wuhan, Hubei.

General Motors‘ growing presence in Wuhan – the Wuhan Branch of its SAIC-GM joint venture began vehicle production on January 28, 2015 – along with the acceleration of urbanization and growth of China’s cities are the driving forces behind what is known as the “mobility Internet.”

The mobility Internet is created by the convergence of the Internet (duh), roadside transportation infrastructure, and the power grid. It could lead to solutions for traffic congestion thus bettering road safety, energy consumption, and air quality.

“Intelligent vehicles will make urban mobility safer, more convenient and more eco-friendly than current transportation,” said Tsien, to approximately 20 businesses, along with academic and government leaders. “They will also become the hallmark of a smart city.

GM states that at the core an intelligent vehicle is “autonomous and connected driving powered by electricity, connected continuously to the communications infrastructure, electronically controlled and autonomously driven when desired.”

Tsien went on to explain how those attending the meeting could help make smart cities and intelligent vehicles a reality rather than just an idea.
