SHANGHAI, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Given the astronomical sales figure of 20 million vehicles in China during 2013 and the country's increasingly crowded city streets and thoroughfares, it's time to put in place an intelligent transportation management system and instigate a smart vehicle revolution. As a result, "Connected Vehicle" and "Intelligent Transportation System (ITS)," two major applications launched in the field of Internet of Things (IoT), will certainly be the hottest focus this year. The China Connected Vehicle & ITS Series Event, jointly hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers of China, the China Intelligent Transportation Systems Association, and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, Shanghai Sub-Council, will consist of two major events: the "China Connected Vehicle & ITS and Forum" and a series event for "fellow travelers" -- car drivers and other stakeholders interested in high-quality products that support a better transportation ecosystem -- where the latest developments and trends in the Connected Vehicle and ITS industry and how to jointly build an industry-wide ecosystem will be discussed.
High-end event jointly supported by three major organizations to be held in October
The first China Connected Vehicle & ITS Expo and Forum will be held at Shanghai Mart on October 28-29, 2014, and will focus on demonstrating the Connected Vehicle and ITS sector's latest innovations and products from both China and abroad. The new exhibition model leverages the convergence of a live-action cyber city with a physical event that will enable people to learn what the city of the future will look and feel like and to marvel at the efficiency and convenience of travel in that city of the future.
As one of the key events at the expo, the 2014 "fellow travelers" series was newly launched this year. Highlights of the schedule include:
- "Connected Vehicle (Internet of Vehicle), a disruptive or integral force to ITS?" in March
- "Information Consumption and Intelligent Transport" in June
- "Global ITS Forum - China Thinking" in September
- "Solution for Urban Public Transportation" in December
- Each event is scheduled on the last Friday of the month throughout 2014.
