“Smart city” is gradually becoming Chongqing’s new business card.
During the Thirteenth Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020), the innovation-driven development strategy led by big data and smart technology has been fully implemented in Chongqing. The solid footprint of high-quality technological progress and a well-off life is becoming increasingly distinct on the land of Bayu.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, the demand for smart transportation has become stronger than ever. Particularly, Chongqing had such a smart transportation big data application platform, where it can establish vehicle information files from collecting massive data on passing vehicles.
This has played an important role in recording and analyzing the travel patterns of vehicles used by suspected COVID-19 patients.
That information about vehicles also can be displayed in an interactive visual form, including basics like driving licenses and permits, and other information that can be used to analyze the final destinations and frequency of occurrences on suspected vehicles, when they entering the city from specific provinces and regions at their first time.
The aim of this smart transportation platform is to achieve real-time visualization and accurate tracking of high-risk vehicles.
Furthermore, the platform can identify and report vehicles carrying anti-epidemic resources and gaining green-pass permits in advance based on users’ needs. It is able to coordinate and ensure the effective traffic of various checkpoints and support the recording of pedestrian and vehicle trajectory information.
This not only facilitates subsequent traceability, and makes the logistics and freight process more smooth and safe, but helps the vehicles used to transport the front-line health-care workers and facilities to pass through efficiently.
Specifically, the smart transportation platform was built by Unisinsight, a company that settled in Liangjiang New Area. The platform focuses on big data and deeply integrates cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and other technologies to alleviate traffic congestion, improve the safety of road traffic, and enhance the efficiency of traffic management.
This has also significantly helped the epidemic prevention and control, and the resumption of work in Chongqing.
Meanwhile, the platform can also perform multiple functions, including intelligent region sensor, vehicle analysis, emergency vehicle management, as well as traffic situation research and judgment.
With the promotion of innovative technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, the digital economy is becoming the main engine of China’s economic growth.
Throughout the country, smart transportation no longer refers to transportation in the traditional sense. The concept of smart transportation also involves infrastructure, transportation services, mobile Internet, security, and green development, which further improves peoples’ quality of life.
