Project Summary

Topic: To fulfil the APEC Connectivity Blueprint and enhance Global Value Chains (GVCs), APEC-IOV Phase III will continue the momentum of Phase I and II, extending on the successful outcomes (white paper), especially focusing on the Mobile Mobility and Connectivity (MMC) in the Asia-Pacific region, by bringing in private sectors of member economies and identifying the best practice of international cooperative research capacity building and commercialization on the application of MMC.


Planned Activities: The 4th APEC IOV symposium (APEC-funded) includes a training program (capacity building for developing economies on MMC, IP protection and policies) for the private sectors, government and academia in the APEC region to have deep discussion regarding the latest IOV technology trend, application and commercialisation.  It offers 21 member economies an opportunity to study and improve road safety and transportation efficiency based on Cebu Action Plan[1] and Connectivity Blueprint[2] while boosting the business dialogue on IOV's GVCs.  The MMC Exhibition (as an annual KPI of the project) is a supplement to the symposium.

This proposal will include: the future IOV development; Internet Economy; the APEC White paper on IOV; the better inclusive Growth Investment environment and the harmonization of IOV Free Trade as an implementation of Bogor Goals.

[2] an APEC Strategy for 2015-2025 was initiated at the Leader’s Meeting 2014 in Beijing

Relevance

Relevance - APEC: Internet of Vehicles (IOV) is an integrated network for supporting intelligent traffic management, intelligent dynamic information service, and intelligent vehicle control, representing a typical application of Mobile Mobility and Connectivity (MMC) in Intelligent Transport System (ITS). As transport develops in parallel with information technology, the establishment of ITS is the inevitable trend of the development of traffic. A better connectivity environment using MMC will enhance coordination in IOV field. Consequently, under the APEC framework, 21 member economies are capable of improving their cooperation and promoting innovation afterwards.

Future vehicles will have to address a growing list of pertinent issues, which affect the automotive industry including energy consumption, environmental pollution, and traffic congestion. IOV, as an integrated network with MMC technology including sensing, networking, computing and controlling, holds vast knowledge of road and traffic data. IOV is designed to address and solve many of these issues through promoting a goal of “minimum accidents, low emissions, and high efficiency” through the development of automobiles and the ITS. The consequential effect of IOV will help APEC region to realize safer road infrastructure, improve road condition, and reduce traffic congestion impacting on the energy crisis.

The project promotes capacity building for developing economies on broad and efficient use of MMC in full when first used on roads, cars and related infrastructure to ensure a more secure, friendly, green and intelligent transportation network and the better investment environment of the car industry. It can be a proven forum served as a platform to increase growth and reduce trade barriers to meet Bogor Goals for business. A series the White Paper on IOV has achieved an impressive track record in bringing Government, Academia and Private Sector together to drive harmonization of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in full policies based MMC and regulatory approval procedures for IOV related products traded more freely in the APEC region. Phase III also has sustained benefits to APEC economies by inviting representatives from those co-sponsoring fora (i.e. two participants each forum).

Relevance - Rank: The project falls under Rank 2 of the APEC Funding Criteria, Strengthening Quality Growth. IOV is a project that emphasizes the sustainable growth in transportation system. The development and accomplishment of IOV not only lower the carbon emission by conserving petroleum resource, but also become of great importance to the smart city. IOV directly links to: Connectivity Blueprint, including Institutional Connectivity, by addressing issues of trade facilitation, structural and regulatory reforms as well as transport and logistics facilitation, modernization of customs and border agencies, regulatory coherence and the international interoperability, harmonization of local policies with existing international agreements, the application of secure and trusted ICT environment.

Objectives

This proposal involves two path finder events which will explore opportunities for research capacity-building and commercialization activities, using APEC expertise, world-class joint research and strong private sector from industry with the following objectives in mind:

A tentative annual event (the 4th APEC-IOV Symposium, APEC-funded either in ShenZhen or in Shanghai. This will be confirmed ASAP according to the strength of local support) + a side training program (City Uni, Hong Kong, China, non-APEC funded). In collaboration with ITS-WG 2017 and ITF-OECD, we will use their resources to invite experts and speakers. This combination facilitates increased public and private sectors understanding of best practices regarding MMC and innovation growth with institutional activity on IOV technologies in APEC economies. Along with the 4th Symposium, a confirmed exhibition (Mobile and Mobility Connectivity 2017, self-funded), which will save Symposium’s costs while attracting more exhibition participants to our Symposium. This will popularize the marketing driven products of IOV and help the public carrying out its future investigation on Internet of Vehicles.

The initiative will focus on capacity building in APEC developing economies and information sharing, which would enhance the overall governance and productivity of developing economies. These events will benefit all APEC member economies through IOV technology demonstration, development and commercialization.

Alignment

Alignment-APEC: This project responds to APEC's priorities in developing safe, secure, resilient, efficient, and sustainable transportation systems, (APEC Leaders’ 2015 Declarations), continuing to enhance their work on connectivity of transportation networks. This project complements the on-going work on opportunities that the internet and digital economy offers to achieve innovative, sustainable, inclusive, and secure growth, with a view to improving connectivity was emphasized at the Declarations of 2015 APEC Leaders’ Meeting.

The project responds to a directive by APEC Transportation Ministers at their meeting in Cebu, the Philippines from 8-10 October 2015, urging the TPTWG to collaborate with PPSTI on the application of ITS and other related applications to improve road safety and transport efficiency. In collaboration with the PPSTI, the TELWG has included this Concept Note in its TELWG Strategic Action Plan 2016-20. The TELWG welcomes the progress of the APEC Internet of Vehicles that was reaffirmed at the 2015 APEC Joint Ministerial Meeting. 

Alignment Forum: This project supports core Policy Partnership on Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI) objectives to strengthen collaboration and enhance member economies’ innovative capacity. PPSTI has responded vigorously to the call for cooperation with other sub-APEC fora by marshaling efforts across multiple units. We do academic research on the theories underlying MMC, followed by the implementation of the results as an application system that solves traffic problems and commercializes the intellectual and technological achievements. This project will help assess the development of MMC within IOV applications in APEC economies. This project encourages developing economies to utilize appropriate IOV technologies for their circumstances.

TILF/ASF Justification

The project will support APEC developing economies through science technology and innovation 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, adaption and promotion of 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”.

As a consequence, a universal or regional IOV case/mode 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: Training Program: This training will take place at City Uni Hong Kong, China (non-APEC funded). Local hosting will use their networking to invite key experts from both academia (universities and institutions) and private sectors who will share their experiences with audiences from the APEC region. Based on a broad discussion about Vehicles-based wireless communication system (VWCS), the training participants will do exchange their experiences on some case studies that will improve VWCS. 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. Using those technologies, a prototype VWCS will be created and will not be limited to short-term impact but make substantive, long-term benefits to the APEC region in terms of the future implementation of the prototype system.

Events: symposium (APEC funded) and MMC exhibition (non-APEC funded). They are based on the STI policy discussion of IOV. At the symposium, participants will exchange their new ideas, share their recent achievements and will initiate an IOV action plan that may guide the developing economies to build up a demonstration site using advanced technologies from the developed in the APEC region. This plan will begin with Chile, China, Mexico and Thailand accordingly. Project’s sponsors and cosponsors have sufficient experience in knowledge and technology in a commercialization purpose. The vision of holding an integrated event (symposium + exhibition) is not only for technology exchange, but also to lead a future trend 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.

Completion of this project will immediately meet the requirement from the relevant units of some targeted APEC economies, e.g. Russia Federation Academy of Sciences (Russia), NecTec (Thailand), Transportation Association (Chile). 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, the academic people and the visitors (audiences) at the same venue. IOV Phase III will popularize the market-oriented products of IOV in the APEC region, help people carrying out its future investigation on intelligent transportation, and explore opportunities of innovative markets. 

Outcomes:

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

- Articulate the latest Edition of the APEC White Paper on Internet of Vehicles (publication of PPSTI)

- Policy Recommendations for the development of a conformable regulation

- A full publication of the past projects and the current Phase 3 that help people better understanding how IOV changes our daily life and gives us a safer and more efficient traffic condition.

- Some cases development from developing economies that will benefit from the outputs. New products and advanced technologies will be transferred or commercialized from the developed economies to those developing ones.

- At the symposium and exhibition, developing economies will identify the contact window (key liaison) of developed ones, explain their consolidate the requirements & request a smooth communication bridge will be built up between developing and developed economies based on IOV.

The future publication (document) will include several chapters: Case studies, STI policy recommendation on IOV, an action plan and a concrete wrapping up of the past event serials on the APEC Internet of Vehicles. The Project will firstly still be information sharing that raises people's awareness and understanding of necessary profound regulation 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 who 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. 

Beneficiaries: The direct project attendees will be those from the 21 APEC member economies delegates, especially the developing economies. They will have a chance to bring up the questions and thoughts of the utilization of IOV technologies on road, cars and infra-structure. In the symposium and exhibition, the latest technology will be exchanged and deeply discussed. Innovation is like the beautiful spark collided by intelligent ideas. The widespread implementation of this project will also raise people's understanding and desiring of IOV products. Their traffic habits may also be positively changed. 

The project will engage world-class leading experts and private sectors with strong technical background from relevant industries in IOV, and officials of APEC economies, including end-users participating as visitors at the MMC Exhibition & the Symposium (including the training program). We share our database (of such a world-class experts networking) with CVTA and CCPIT to each other. They are Audi, BMW, GE, Intel, Version, Toyota, Sumsung, HuaWei, Cubic and others. A general VIP invitation letter will be circulated to them and we will select from those responded. For those officials from ministries, we will fist contact PPSTI members. However, we also have our own bilateral paths via which our team will contact them (i.e. Minister offices) to seek their participation approval. For instance, MOST of Thailand, Education ministry of Singapore, Federation Economy Ministry of Russia, CSA of NewZealand. The events ensure products of IOV equipped the technology keeping up with the global level in IOV field. Symposium participants will be those from economies with an interest in the development of a regional IOV best practice, and are potential beneficiaries of such events, including developing economies. Ultimately, the project will promote the development of the IOV industry, leading to the creation of higher paid jobs in skilled technical fields. 

Besides, people from investment and financial part will also be involved. The majority IOV companies are either start-up or SMEs. They are high-end smart business operators, fully educated, innovation creators, and active generations with an equal gender distribution. This group is of great interest to people from investment and financial units. Before the event, these participants will be selectively nominated by member economies and their qualification and relevance will be evaluated in advance. Once approved, we will generate them the invitation letter and save seats for them. The project will work to involve 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.

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 and young audiences from many stakeholders.

The website related to the project is: http://www.mmcshanghai.org. Since the training is not an APEC funded part, the materials will be selectively uploaded to the website for public sharing. During the symposium and exhibition, press 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. To visit this website, it is free of charge and free download all related magerials, eg. Agenda, experts profiles, local infors and etc. Event reports, such as White Paper, PPSTI publication will be submitted to the APEC database. Other innovative methods such as digital platforms (APP for both android and apple) will be considered to further enhance the communication and promotion of the project’s outputs and outcomes. The app code will be provided to all our partners, sponsors and co-sponsors. They will help attracting more people to download and use the app. Our events will be automatically advertised when people open or use the app. 

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

This very promising project 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. This will be achieved by contacting All-China Women's Federation through which we can contact the National Organization for Women and its sub-unit in Science and Technology fileds. The project leaders will create fairly opportunities for both men and women and also consider involving them equally 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 our smart life 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. On the other hand, men are 3.4 times more likely than women to get a ticket for reckless driving and 3.1 times as likely to be cited for drunk driving, according to a study by Quality Planning, a research firm that works for insurance companies. "Women are on average less aggressive and more law-abiding drivers -- attributes that lead to fewer accidents," the study says. It is approved women drive more safely and men may benefit from the IOV technology better because the intelligent driving system will alert drivers to the potential danger. The IOV and its related technologies will help both genders avoid those incidents.

Within the 21 APEC members, most economies are facing high urbanization and undesirable distribution of population density. The IOV cases and the pending roadmap discussed in the APEC forum can shed the light on how to solve above challenges. 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. A road map can be optimized to function most effectively within people's future smart life.
 

By attending the symposium and exhibition, The “best practices” of 21 APEC economies can be exchanged during the training; and the solution on the “challenge” of IOV implementation can also be discussed and documented. 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. 

For the Symposium & Exhibition: together take place either in ShenZhen or in Shanghai. 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 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 for APEC & non-APEC economies as a contribution after this project. 

For the Training: In the APEC region, help experts, professionals and scientists discussing, case studying, road map designing and wrapping up a STI policy recommendations. The training will take place in Hong Kong, China,  under the support from City University. This training 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 regulatory 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. “Drive the Future” is the core voice of our project. Having conducted the training and garnered public attentions, we planned to share the outputs with other member economies to involve as many unmet but potential participants as possible, more focussing on start-up entrepreneurs, investors. Lastly, some valuable publications will be provided to SCE and SOM, also requiring APEC fund support as planned.

Risks

The event will be co-hosted with CCPIT-Shanghai. How can we make the event smoothly? Good thing is that we together have a good experience in 2016. We are able to manage any possible challenges and put the risk under control to ensure a high quality combination. One thing is ensured that no payment will go to CCPIT-Shanghai. We have reliable suppliers which have been cooperating with us since the first round, we confirm that the APEC fund will be used to the symposium only.

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. Once the event’s venue and time confirmed, it is not an easy job to make sure the attendance of those invited participants. This is because in the past symposia we found that some participants might change or cancel their itineraries, we had to find replacement within only a very limited time. This is one of the most important tasks we will focus on at the next preparation stage.

Articulate the latest Edition White Paper

Recommendations for the development of an conformable regulation

The publication will be seen as one of KPIs that can make a clear guidance of how the policy helps drive this industry. The paper will give cause to reinforce the development of MMC’s research, marketing, and industries as well as to speed up its regulation process in Asia-Pacific region.
Participants/economies start to commercialize the technology of IOV based on the conformable regulation set by this project in the Asia-Pacific.

The APEC IOV project is discussed at a variety of APEC meetings.

An identification of policy issues across all domains relevant to the evolution of IOV and MMC with recommendations to eg, TEL on infrastructure, ECSG on privacy, TPT on ITS, ABAC and SME on business and ect.

All (men and women) is the ultimate beneficiaries of IOV technology in the end of the day.

Linkages

As the trend of modern Intelligent This project will continue the momentum of previous APEC-IOV Phase I & II, especially the White Paper and the demonstrations. APEC-IOV Phase III promotes cross-fora collaboration as it aligns with the TELWG and TPTWG’s commitments to ensure the conservation and sustainable use of transportation resources, road safety and road infrastructures. It also aligns with the Sub-committee on Standards and Conformance (SCSC)’s objective of enhancing conformable regulation’s contribution to the region's economic growth and social well-being in APEC region. It will contribute to the supply chain connectivity for both developed and developing economies through infrastructure development and logistics cooperation by building business and community resilience and thus it aligns with the goals of the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC). This will lead to a convenient, efficient, safe, green and secure transport across the Asia- Pacific region, and IOV technology policies that support product regulation, interoperability, and intellectual property rights. The bi- & multi-lateral cooperation will be further enhanced and a sustainable application model of IOV & MMC will be achieved through APEC sub-fora, including more possible fora such as ECSG (ICT-enabled growth path, the Digital Prosperity Checklist, identity management and privacy, security) addressing “internet economy” aspects, SME and the Automotive Dialogue. This CN has reviewed and endorsed at the latest IIEG and LEG meetings that were two key parts of the 42nd TPTWG meetings in PNG 2016.

While the initial focus for APEC fora and economies, the project is relevant to a range of non-APEC stakeholders eg. The ITS World Congress, ITF-OECD, Connected Vehicles Trade Association (CVTA), I.M. System Group (IMSG), ISO and UNECE. The collaboration among APEC fora is good to promote regional economic and free trading cooperation by signing a possible cooperative agreement, as well as future projects to promote sustainable development of this platform with non-APEC units above listed.
In 2017, APEC-IOV will concurrently be held with MMC (Mobile and Mobility Connectivity) Exhibition organized by SIEC. Besides MMC, SIEC will also organize the 17th Auto Shanghai Exhibition that has been rated as one of global A-Class auto shows as well as become an authoritative and influential car show in the world in the same year.

The overall project aims to develop a leading platform to promote a smart mobility industry and life-style innovation, taking into account of outcomes of the recent and current projects.

Sustainability

An Internet of Vehicle (IOV) is the industrial combination of the traditional automobile and IT. 80% innovations in automobile industry are connected to ICT. The combination creates a new industry with the potential to completely change the way we plan and resolve the traffic. The new industry will create new job opportunities and revitalize automotive industry with far-reaching impact. 

The stakeholders and beneficiaries will discover, as the Internet of Vehicles develops, that it becomes a self-driven innovation; Intelligent driving experience stimulates the production of the better maximization of this industry. New participants, for instance, those additional researchers and other economies which might potentially utilize the IOV will be interested in this project and desire to participate in the symposium and program. This interest will result in the rapid and continuous development of this project. 

1) Create an alliance of Internet of Vehicles in the APEC framework covering all 21 member economies to share the outcomes and experiences of this project. We have been arranging stakeholder's feedback for an annual report and the app is now online and will be further developed in 2017 for future use.

2) The advanced IOV related technology will be shared with the participants in the symposium and the most updated products will be shown at exhibition. APEC economies will be able to apply the technology to resolve the existing problems efficiently. The symposium will ideally be an annual classic event of PPSTI to achieve a sustainable effect in the future (although not endorsed yet, we plan to seek PPSTI and APEC approval in an annual basis). Furthermore, we dedicate ourselves to utilizing and promoting the future road map 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.

Provide the simultaneous interpretation service for the APEC participants from economies except China. The symposium will be held in China so we will invite at least 15 Chinese-speaking experts (from the current wrap-up of the past three symposia from 2014-2016), 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 sufficient, which takes almost 50% of all APEC funding of this project, we believe that we have saved enough fund for the active participants and made APEC funding use efficiently.
