Project Summary

This Phase will be building on the white paper of IOV by carrying out international cooperative research and supporting tech. commercialization on the application of IOV, and by deploying Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) in APEC designated locations.

1) An exhibition (http://www.iccve.org/2015/index.html) to introduce the current status and experience of the application and commercialization of IOV, to promote new IOV technologies to deal with existing and future traffic problems.

2) A symposium for in depth discussion of solutions to road safety and transportation efficiency, and give a framework of measures for applying IoV tech in the APEC region, help building regional standards and implementable IP policies for APEC.

3) Implementation will be the key component to focus on capacity building for developing APEC economies. An APEC-wide approach, including standardization and product harmonization within IOV industry sector, emphasizing “interoperability” of technology and the protection of intellectual property rights (IPR) will be applied.

Relevance

As transportation develops in parallel with information technology including e-commerce and ICT infrastructure, the establishment of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) becomes increasingly vital. In mature ITSs, the products of an Internet of Vehicles (IOV) are crucial elements. Successful IOV applications will make road infrastructure more secure and improve road transportation efficiency, reducing traffic congestion that aggravates the energy crisis. Building IOV will not only enhance supply chain connectivity including Cooperation Network on Green Supply Chain, Model E-Port Network, Cross-border E-commerce Innovation and Development, Customs 3M (Mutual Recognition of Control, Mutual Assistance of Enforcement and Mutual Sharing of Information) Strategic Framework through infrastructure development and logistics cooperation through infrastructure development and logistics cooperation, but also result in greater efficiency in energy utilization and reduction in demands on non-renewable fossil fuels. Moreover, IOV implements the concept of APEC Connectivity Blueprint on enhancing physical, institutional and people-to-people connectivity. The development of an IOV will deliver a safe road environment increasingly free of death and injury which, due to the large numbers of automobiles in the APEC region, is of great concern to APEC member economies.

The symposium and the first exhibition will take place in Shenzhen, China, and the second exhibition will be held in Peru, both along side of a confirmed activity, which will save costs while attracting suitably targeted audiences. Our initiative will focus on policy capacity building in APEC's developing economies and information sharing, which could help bring the overall traffic governance in developing economies to the level of developed economies. These events will benefit all APEC economies through IOV demonstration, development and commercialization.

A successful wide range of application of Internet or Vehicles will also enhance the development of APEC priority fields, such as “Low Carbon Emissions”, “Green Energy” and “Smart Technology” in the developing economies at the initial stage.

Objectives

1) Symposium: APEC funded, will increase public and private sector understanding of the best practices of Intelligent Transportation and develop some means (eg. improving road safety and transportation efficiency, and framework of measures) for applying IOV in APEC economies. All economies will be invited to attend the Symposium, with special measures to assist and support developing economies to be prepared for effective participation. Key symposium speakers and exhibitors will be invited to the exhibition.

2) Exhibitions: One, focusing onto Software Based IOV technology and application, will be a side event of the symposium in Shenzhen and this exhibition will be funded by IEEE. The other, focusing onto Hardware Based IOV technology and application, as a side event of Peru’s PPSTI meetings, will be involved into an existing vehicle event in Peru.

We save the APEC fund for a better symposium - the most important part of the IOV Phase II, and we aim to show the latest technological and industrial achievements in IOV, ITS, ICTs and accelerate the commercialization of IOV to benefit APEC economics, particularly in developing economies. The project will enlarge the multilateral cooperation and achieve a sustainable application model of IOV, leading to a convenient, efficient and safety transport in the APEC region.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: This project responds to APEC's priorities in improving regional quality transportation networks, including roads, railroads, ports and airports (Declarations of 2014 APEC Leaders’ Meeting), through its intent to develop, maintain and renew quality infrastructure, including energy, ICT and transport infrastructure, and build resiliency into the energy infrastructure, which is a key component of the blue economy and Building Sustainable and Resilient Communities. These will collectively shrink time and distance barriers inside the APEC region and link APEC economies in one community what will become more competitive and cohesive as a result of the implementation of this project that closely meets the theme of APEC 2015 - Building Inclusive Economies, Building a Better World.

This project complements the on-going work on improving transportation systems which was reaffirmed at the 2014 APEC Joint Ministerial Meeting. The application of ITS will ease the flow of goods, people, services, and capital through developing a transportation “Connectivity Map” and “Quality Transport” vision, and by sharing best practices for enhancing transportation infrastructure investment, which right meets the theme of PPSTI 2015: Science, Technology and Innovation for Inclusive Growth. The affiliated two exhibitions will facilitate investment in infrastructure and technology in an effort to realize IOV that will benefit APEC economies.

Alignment Forum: The APEC Policy Partnership on Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI) has responded vigorously to the call for cooperation with other sub-APEC forums by marshalling efforts across multiple units, e.g. TELWG, TPTWG; AD; and SCSC, to promote information sharing and capacity building of APEC developing economies on this topic. This engagement will improve productivity in addressing PPSTI’s work plan on “encourage and support STI stakeholders, including SMEs to participate in the APEC STI cooperation on various levels and in different fields, which will give full play to the strong points of collaboration among government, private sector and academia and realize the goal of Asia-pacific inclusive growth through joint efforts”. We are open, pending additional APEC internal discussion, to continuing to address this issue as a core priority, also focussing on STI policy of standards and IP protection in this field.

TILF/ASF Justification

The project will support APEC developing economies through capacity building and information sharing in research, inclusive regional market, entrepreneur/business/trade communications, start-up investment and multilateral cooperation into IOV key technologies. Successful IOV implementation will significantly decrease the number of accidents and improve traffic efficiency, meeting the priorities of both human security and ECOTECH. At the same time, adapt and promote the IOV technologies in all member economies, will enhance greater connectivity between technology and commercialization, which meets the goal of “Science, Technology and Innovation for inclusive growth”.

By attending the symposium and exhibition, the experts from 21 APEC economies will exchange their ideas and suggestions on technology research, governmental policy and industrial development, and the best practice from developed economies will be shared. Fundamental research, practical implementations and policy promotion of the IOV technologies, these abilities can be adopted by APEC developing economies, enhancing their supply chains, physical and institutional connectives. Gradually, these changes will be spread all over the APEC region, enhance the capability of economies on adapting themselves to the development of STI, and finally bring and share new changes with other APEC economies.

As a consequence, a universal or regional IOV standard may be used for all APEC member economies and benefit citizens of the region. The appropriate IOV products will be demonstrated in APEC developing economies, before further applications in the remaining economies, and ultimately will be broadened to reach worldwide ambitions.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: We will do academic research on the theories of vehicle-based wireless communication system: this system uses on-vehicle units, roadside units, video optical transmission equipment, video servers, and other equipment to achieve active safety when a vehicle approaches a crossroad. The applied system is planned to be implemented as the output of the project. The prototype will be developed by our technique team in cooperation with TongJi University, ITRI, IEEE beginning with China, Thailand and Viet Nam in 2016-2017 and this will be a self-funded output. This prototype and the outcomes of this Exhibition and Symposium will not be limited to short-term impact but make substantive, long-term benefits to the APEC region, especially those regions that suffer from, or anticipate suffering from traffic problems. Research projects:

1) Basic theory and key technologies of IOV cross-layer design

2) Low-delay and High-reliability communication, funding from MIIT, Industrial IOT

3) Quality-of-Experience Improvement for Mobile Multimedia across Heterogeneous Wireless Networks”

4) Research on key technology of Next Generation Broadband Wireless Access

5) Active safety applications for Komatsu excavator based on Internet of vehicles

A symposium on the STI policy discussion of IOV standard will be conduct on 2015.10 with IEEE as the only APEC funded part of this project. Project’s sponsors and cosponsors also have sufficient experience in knowledge and technology in a commercialization purpose. The vision of holding symposium is not only for technology exchange, but also to set up a future standard of IOV which each APEC member economies can comply with, in order that road transportation efficiency and the security of road infrastructure can be significantly improved. For example, a preliminary demonstration project has  been recently set up at CAS while other seminars frequently appear in ITRI every year. It will serve as part of the development of the IOV special communication system, which is a multilateral collaborative project among China; Chinese Taipei; United States. Completion of this project will immediately meet the requirement from the relevant units in other APEC economies, e.g. Russia Federation Academy of Sciences (Russia), NecTec (Thailand), Hanoi University of Technology (Viet Nam), to co-build their own demonstration projects. In addition, the developing economies can enhance communication of academia and enterprises, strengthen supply chain connectivity, and further share technological achievements under the framework of APEC meetings.

The project will gather the exhibitors of IOV physical parts suppliers, the academic party of researchers and the visitors of potential demander of IOV technologies. IOV Phase II will popularize the marketing driven products of IOV, help people carrying out its future investigation on intelligent transportation, and explore innovative markets.

Outcomes: Based on the 1st edition of the APEC IOV White Paper, the 2nd edition will involve STI policies regarding to IOV standardization, interoperability, and intellectual property rights that secure people to carry out IOV’s trade and investment and meet demands of SMEs. The draft agenda of IOV Phase II will be drawn for main stakeholders' (government, private sector and academia) consideration under PPSTI's guidance. A planned symposium includes APEC experts regarding to the discussion of IP, Standard of IOV technologies and creates a further summary as an end.

The Project will firstly still be information sharing that raises people's awareness and understanding of necessary standardization of IOV technologies and their future global applications. In additions, a multilateral research is being discussed among APEC member economies. It builds a close tie in the APEC region and later benefits others globally. The related research achievements will be shared with developing economies where they will be faster and more beneficial against an insecure traffic conditions. For instance, when IOV applied vehicles meet traffic congestion, will advise drivers of other new and accessible paths. When drivers get exhausted, system will alter to stop or even help slowing down the vehicles according to the index data of fatigue from smart eye-blinking detector installed.

As an APEC star activity, periodical IOV event is expected to further promote regional growth goals, strategic aims, and concerns. The project serves as a key APEC platform for accessing the policy advices and the related official governance, and in order to meet the needs of the market and the high-end tech. ambition in IOV field. We will create a 2nd edition APEC White Paper of IOV to share our results and the outputs and to explore how the technologies and the related policies can be optimized to function most effectively within people's future smart life. Obviously, IOV technologies are the most appropriate tools to achieve the desired results, implementations and the immediate benefits regarding to traffic issues.

Beneficiaries: The direct project attendees will be the 21 APEC member economies, especially encouraged to participate are those developing economies which are involved in the project. People in APEC member economies will be the direct beneficiaries of this project. The utilization of IOV technologies on road, cars and infra-structure will significantly improve road safety, traffic efficiency and people's traffic condition. As a result, the quality of their daily life will be raised. Time and money will be saved. The widespread implementation of this project and its ITS systems will also raise people's understanding and desiring of IOV and IOV products. Their traffic habits may also be positively changed. In short, the project will maintain the efforts of the achievement of phase I - 2014 IOV forum took place in Shanghai, China.

The selection criteria for participants will mainly focus on the private sector, academicians (researchers/experts) from relevant industries, and the relevant ministries of APEC economies, as transportation ministries, etc. These people will participate in preliminary work on the issues listed above, and will participate in the main exhibition and the affiliated workshop/symposium. Private sectors and enterprises will bring the most accurate industrial demand to us and support the researchers and experts to learn the market. Their participation will facilitate IOV technology by well integrating of enterprises and institutes.  This project will also provide a number of job opportunities. Persons interested will be introduced to a full range of knowledge concerning IOV and the system implementation stage for which related-field professionals, enterprises and business persons are needed. Broader economic stimulus will be provided as the project moves into the future as the automotive and related industries hire IOV specialists and contract the related suppliers in the field. The up-coming outputs, such as 2nd edition of White Paper of IOV, publication, policy summary of those coupling activities, are mainly for the government officials of 21 APEC member economies as the reference. Under these advices, economy authorities may suggest some new policies about IP protection, application standardization and marketing orientation regarding to IOV and its technologies. As an ideal consequence, those policies can be part of guidance for private sectors and enterprises.

Besides those above mentioned participants, people from industrial, investment, financial part, start-up and small + medium sized enterprise are heavily involved and benefited. They are high-end smart business operators, fully educated, innovation creators, and active generations with an equal gender distribution. The project will work to involve some female business leaders that possess successful managerial expertise, and have new ideas and feasible ambitions. They usually have run their own companies for more than 3 years; most of them are still operating it over 5 years while some of them have started something new after relocating their previous business unit.

Part of budget will be for developed economies on the basis of their engagement as possible speakers or group facilitators. The involvement of developed economies with related researchers/research institutions in IOV project can make significant contributions to our project as they have centers of research excellence that can be accessed. Meanwhile, their participation increases the quality of project outcomes given their respective strengths in S&T, along with long term endorsement for the project.

Dissemination

The target audience can be mainly classified into three parts:

1) Academia (experts, researchers and professionals) will be communicated through the symposium;

2) Private sector and end consumers are main participants for the global exhibition;

3) APEC economies/governments/manufacturers are for 2nd edition IOV White Paper

During the symposium and exhibition, press release will be disseminated to both the exhibitors and visitors. Before and after the event, we will have ads and event summary on the website to keep all the parties updated with the progress. Other innovative methods such as digital platforms will be considered to further enhance the communication and promotion of the project’s outputs and outcomes.

We hope to have more cooperation with as many of the 21 APEC economies as possible; information on the related technologies and recommended policies will be shared among these member economies, especially developing economies where they will be faster and more beneficial against an insecure traffic conditions. We hope that people in the APEC region will pay great attention to our project, its results and implementations, and the possible immediate benefits it could be to their development.

Gender

IOV phase II is a promising project that will promote traffic efficiency and reduce traffic accidents in a variety of practical ways. A 50/50 gender selection for workshop participants and speakers will be ensured. The project leaders also consider involving both men and women in the development of the project, the workshop in particular.The resulting techniques and applications will be shared with all relevant or interested parties. In the long term of IOV's future development, all the people (men and women of all social strata, ages, and occupations) are the ultimate beneficiaries; anyone who suffers from traffic problem in the city will be a beneficiaries.

More and more women have their own vehicles. Motor companies also have manufactured lots of vehicle types that are target at female buyers and drivers. According to an investigation by the WHO, more than 40 percent of the vehicles in the world belong to women. Considering this situation, it is quite obviously that any future reforms or innovations in traffic or technology related to roads will have a definite impact on the women in the world. Gender difference is shown to be a significant factor in automobile ownership behavior, and this difference persists across all ages. Automobile ownership in female-headed households trends to be less than that in male-headed households, so the IOV project will be devoted to the capacity to influence academia and industry to substantively incorporate the needs of both men and women into the field. Impediments to the free flow of traffic and traffic accidents impact men and women equally. The IOV and its related technologies will help both genders avoid traffic accidents and hence reduce the harm and unnecessary damage.

Work Plan

1) 7 - 8/15:  Establish a framework for the first exhibition + a symposium, together with IEEE with necessary documents and confirm participants and speakers;

2) 8 - 10/15:  Prepare and conduct this symposium focussed onto the STI policies of IOV standardization;

3) 10/15: Host the exhibition (software based) and the symposium in ShenZhen, China together with the annual ICCVE (www.iccve.org) conference of IEEE.;

4) 11/15-12/15: Discuss with Peru for the second exhibition (hardware based);

5) 1 - 3/16: Prepare all required paper-work and exhibition venue and further discuss with Peru for a final proposal of the second exhibition that will be involved into an existing event (either “International Salon of Transport (April - May) organized by Association of Automotive Representatives of Peru (Araper) http://araper.pe/” or ”International Telecommunication Day” organized by The Ministry of Transport and Communications). This will be confirmed in March 2016;

6) 4 or 5/16: Open the second exhibition (hardware based) as a side event of PPSTI 7;

7) 6 - 10/16:  Finalize the project and wrap up the outcomes and outputs of the project;

8) 11-12/16: Reaffirm the importance of IOV and publish the IOV White Paper (2nd edition) for SCE & SOM.

9) For the Exhibition: In the APEC region, helps private sectors and governmental officers having a deeper discussion about IOV technology commercialization and application. The main focus of this project is on Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication. Our major attention will be placed not to complex infrastructure but to small and simple devices (e.g. transceivers, and sensors, etc.) which will be developed by our partner Tongji University and other colleagues from IEEE by self-funded that can be carried on vehicles . The communication technologies will be based on 4G cellular and/or WiFi technologies, which have already been world widely adopted. Thus, the long-term aim is to establish an application system without APEC fund support but for APEC & non-APEC economies as a contribution after this project. Our target region will be mainly for the APEC developing economies considering their populations and traffic densities. People in the region would benefit from the traffic convenience, reduction of traffic accidents, and energy efficiency.

This project will also provide a number of job opportunities in relevant areas. After the project achieves its initial intended results, we will continue to popularize the system in the remaining APEC economies, non-APEC economies, and regions worldwide – especially in those developing economies that have poor road traffic conditions. Therefore, this project will act as a connection between developed economies and developing ones. The latter will fully benefit from a variety of resources while the former will profit from the commercialization and voluntary, market-driven dissemination of technology. This will accelerate the development of the automobile industry and improve the traffic efficiency by all means.

10) For the Symposium: In the APEC region, help experts, professionals and scientists wrapping up a STI policy based IOV White Paper, concerning IOV standardization and intellectual properties. The symposium will initiate persons interested in the research to a general knowledge of IOV. Broader economic stimulus will be provided as the project moves into the future as the automotive and related industries hire IOV specialists and contract IOV related supplier. In addition, the technologies and harmonized, rationalized standards considered in this project can be adapted according to the traffic situations in different economies. For instance, in some economies, motorcycles (instead of automobiles) are the major tools used for traffic. We will also focus on deploying communication terminals on motorcycles to help reduce traffic accidents.

“Roads to the Future” is the core voice of our project. Having conducted the symposium and garnered public attentions, we planned to share the outputs (including the 2nd edition of “APEC IOV White Paper”) with other member economies to involve as many unmet but potential participants as possible, including college and university graduates, start-up entrepreneurs and education staffs. Lastly, some valuable publications will be provided to SCE and SOM, eg the White Paper” that will need APEC fund support as planned.

Risks

Technically perhaps the biggest problem is where people can install sensors on the road and intersections to collect the huge amounts of transportation information for effective analysis and prediction based on the pre-designed “Vehicle to Vehicle” and the “Road to Vehicle” communication system. This will be one of the target areas to be discussed and looked at by the experts at the events.

This symposium will be co-hosted with IEEE annual ICCVE (www.iccve.org) conference in ShenZhen, China, so it is a big challenge how we can coordinate with IEEE committee who is in charge of the whole event. Both APEC and IEEE are reputational global organizations and have their unique regulations and guidelines. Good thing is that we have close cooperative relationship with IEEE and its committee, thus we are able to have the best understanding and the most efficient communications between APEC and IEEE to sure a high quality of a combined event.

Our symposium will ideally have a variety of participants involved, including APEC member economies, APEC secretariat and representatives from other sub-APEC forums such as TEL, TPT, SCSC and the AD. Event’s venue and time have been confirmed so it is a hard job to make sure the attendance of those invited participants. This is one of the most important tasks we will focus on at the next preparation stage.

The second part (hardware IOV products) of the exhibition will take place at Lima, Peru in 2016 as currently planned. Facing this challenge (location and distance), we have suggested Peru to co-sponsor IOV Phase II by arranging a coupling activity in 2016, which means: the exhibition + an existing Peru’s event + PPSTI 7. This idea is feasible and reliable to most of stakeholders.

Monitoring and Evaluation

A significant result of this project will be cross-regional, multilateral cooperation to reach a standardization and product harmonization within the IOV industry. Feedback, collected by interviewing participants and visitors the exhibition can be used to make real-world modifications to products which will be promoted to the IOV market. Other feedbacks collected from the related departments in APEC economies will let us understand the reality of their traffic condition before we optimize the obtained information with the previous traffic condition. In addition, PO will consider other indicators to track the implementation of this project, such as number of participants (supposed to have more than 200 delegates, from 21 APEC member economies, related industries and academic organizations) at the symposium. Interviews will be carefully selected at the exhibition, i.e. 2 from each stakeholders of (Academia, Enterprise and Official) of the project + a couple of member economy participants.

A carefully designed paper/online survey will be conducted with all participants to assess if participants were able to successfully apply the knowledge, skills, and capabilities gained in the event to their economies. The 2nd edition of the IOV White Paper will be seen as an indicator that can make a clear guidance of how the policy of IOV standardization helps drive this industry. The paper will give cause to reinforce the development of IOV’s research, marketing, and industries as well as to speed up its standardization process in the APEC region. We are proposing this project because we hope to manage all available regional scientific resources in this subject; we hope to combine different thoughts for the technology development; we hope to road-show our talents on IOV and receive comments in preparing the better ITS for use in daily life. The above results will meet the objectives of our project. All (men and women) is the ultimate beneficiaries of IOV technology.

Here to emphasize PO is aware of the APEC Sponsorship Guidelines and to promise any intended use of logo for the project will have to go through the APEC Secretariat.  No APEC branding will be for use as an endorsement for specific products. Here to clarify the Exhibit will not have any private sponsors or collect fees.

Linkages

As the trend of modern Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and technology developing towards IOV is growing more and more notable, many economies and regions, including the US, Japan, and EU, have already invested a large amount of work in researching and developing IOV and road-vehicle coordination systems. Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII) in the US, and Smartway in Japan are the two relatively mature ITS applications which focus on the connection between roads and vehicles. Both of them rely heavily on roadside infrastructures. However, because most of the developing economies have very long highways stretched between urban areas which make it difficult to deploy physical infrastructure, Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication should be given greater attention in the strategic planning of ITS for developing economies.

It should be noticed that, in the APEC Project Database, there are several projects related to ITS, including Traffic Safety Data System (2005), etc. The most distinct difference between them and this project is that we focus mainly on IOV standard and IP protection issues for this phase II project. We also aim to solve the traffic problems by means of information technology in real time, while theirs put more emphasis on the analysis of traffic flow. This also marks the biggest difference between IOV and ITS.

The successful system will be popularized and demonstrated in those developing economies with the aim of benefitting as many people as possible. Therefore, this project will act as a connection between developed economies and developing ones. This project is developed on the basis of PPSTI 01 2013A – APEC Cooperative Forum on Internet of Vehicles (IOV) and Its Worldwide Application Implementation. We continue to use the academic research and relationships built on that project, especially on the 1st edition of the White Paper of Internet of Vehicles (IOV).

The IOV technology and its application connect across several forums, PPSTI, TPTWG, TELWG, SCSC and AD. For instance, on the 50th TELWG meeting, the 1st edition of the APEC IOV White Paper was delivered to all economies and sent to SOM (http://mddb.apec.org/Documents/2014/TEL/TEL50-PLEN/14_tel50_plen_020.pdf). Ideally, these forums will work together to promote the results and the commitment on the White Paper and its following editions. This project will make improvements on the previous systems and APEC projects and promote new ideas on intelligent transportation, chiefly by developing intelligent information techniques. The work and results of previous projects will be taken into consideration as references. But since they focused on road-to-vehicle communication and largely ignored vehicle-to-vehicle communication, our work will not be a duplication of previous efforts, but represents the introduction of a new approach to finding a solution through the convergence of multi-sourced sensing data and analysis.

Sustainability

An Internet of Vehicle (IOV) is the combination of the traditional automobile industry with the IT industry. We can understand that about 80% innovations in automobile industry are connected to Information Communication Technology (ICT). The combination can create a new industry and it has the potential to completely change the way we deal with and plan for traffic. As a result, the new industry must mean new job opportunities and new market that will really benefit the economies far beyond the field of traffic.

The stakeholders and beneficiaries will discover, as the Internet of Vehicles develops, that it becomes a self-driving force; developments which provide better service to end-users will increase those end-users expectations of service and in turn the increased expectations will drive improvements in the service which will attract new participants, like additional researchers and other economies which might potentially implement an IOV will be interested in this project and desire to participate in it. This interest will cause the rapid and continued development of the project.

1) Create a smart phone APP or a website to share the contents and experiences of this project. Since our previous IOV project done in 2014, we have already created a website (accessible to PPSTI, APEC's website) that can promote IOV's development in APEC region as well as other economies in the world for our project. And we have been arranging stakeholder's feedback for an annual report entitled "White Paper --Internet of Vehicles",  now we are considering to update this whitepaper to 2nd edition; the app should be developed in 2016 accordingly.

2) The advanced IOV related technology will be shared with the participants in the symposium. APEC economies will be able to apply the technology to deal with the existing problems efficiently. The symposium will have a sustainable effect on the future. We are now closely working with IEEE to solve the standard problems that are also big concerns of APEC economies. And the results will be implementable step by step in all required APEC economies as an application demonstration system. Furthermore, we dedicate ourselves to utilizing and promoting the system in a more practical way, not only in the APEC regions, but also in all others worldwide, especially those developing economies that suffer from traffic problems.

By all means, traffic intelligent system or management is the most important part of Smart Technology Formulation. Our project can reinforce the sustainability target of APEC to support PPSTI itself development and to promote PPSTI strategic aims. This supports the APEC Growth Strategy.

The symposium will be held in Shenzhen, China, which will last for 3 days,  so we will invite at least 15 Chinese experts (from the experience of last year), and for the benefits of most APEC participants, they will need the simultaneous interpretation to help understand the speeches. The APEC funding spend on active participants’ travelling fee is $51,537, which takes almost 50% of all APEC funding of this project, we believe that we have saved enough fund for the active participants.
