intelligent and connected vehicles

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the Standardization Administration of China (SAC), on 29 December 2017, jointly issued the National Guidelines for Developing the Standards System of the Telematics Industry (Intelligent and Connected Vehicles) (the ICV Guidelines).

The term intelligent and connected vehicles (ICV) has been repeatedly referred to under various policy documents. Under the ICV Guidelines, ICV is defined as a future generation of vehicles, equipped with advanced in-car sensors, controllers, actuators and other devices and integrated with modern communication and network technologies, which are able to achieve the exchange and sharing of intelligent information between vehicles and X other factors such as individuals, vehicles, roads and cloud, have functions allowing awareness of complex surroundings, intelligent decision-making and collaborative control, are able to realize “safe, efficient, comfortable, energy-saving” driving, and ultimately would realize driving operations in replacement of human beings. With this broad definition, both connected vehicles and autonomous/driverless vehicles would fall within the scope of ICV.

The ICV Guidelines are the second official document in a series of guidelines issued by the Chinese government for the establishment of the standard systems for the industry of telematics (or literally translated as Internet of Vehicles). The drafts for three additional guidelines have been issued by the MIIT and SAC on 25 September 2017, including (i) the National Guidelines for Developing the Standards System of the Telematics Industry (Overall Requirements) , (ii) the National Guidelines for Developing the Standards System of the Telematics Industry (Information Communication), and (iii) the National Guidelines for Developing the Standards System of the Telematics Industry (Electronic Products and Services). This series of guidelines, especially the seemingly expedited finalization and issuance of the ICV Guidelines, shows the Chinese government’s particular ambition and efforts to boost the development of China’s ICV sector.
