What is the Internet of Vehicles blueprint?

- May 27, 2019-

In 2010, the Ministry of Science and Technology released a theme project related to the Internet of Vehicles in the field of modern transportation technology;

In 2011, in the “Twelfth Five-Year” National Science and Technology Plan, the vehicle networking technology was supported as a vehicle technology;

In August 2013, the China Automotive Engineering Society initiated the establishment of the “Technology Innovation Alliance for Vehicle Network Industry”.


The Internet of Vehicles has thus arisen in the country. With the rise of the concept of car networking, BAT and Huawei also launched simultaneously: Huawei established the "Car Networking Business Department" to announce its entry into the Internet of Vehicles; Tencent and Alibaba launched the "Luobao Box" and "Smart Driving Box" vehicles in the same year. Networked products, a little later, Baidu released the Baidu car networking strategy in 2015. These technology companies have made the first attempt in the huge automotive industry.

However, when many car networking products are truly facing the market, they are caught in a strange circle. Users do not understand, do not pay, and dealers do not value. The car network has been cold for many years.

In recent years, with the development of artificial intelligence and the popularity of autonomous driving, and the impact of new energy vehicles represented by Tesla on the automobile market, the Internet of Vehicles has returned to the public eye.

Nowadays, at the market cultivation level, with the wide application of artificial intelligence and the gradual landing of the assisted driving system, users have already had a preliminary understanding of the Internet of Vehicles, and even have certain expectations; technical level, big data, machine vision, depth The development and maturity of learning and speech semantic technology has made the Internet of Vehicles more intelligent than previous products. But then, what is the Internet of Vehicles that BAT, Huawei, and Science and Technology News are aiming at?

Judging from the blueprints they portray, the Internet of Vehicles they need to do is to develop a vehicle-based environment around assisting driving, entertainment, and consumption. Specifically, it is empowered by AI technology, and the scene services of the user before, during, and after the vehicle are connected in series, extending from human-computer interaction to in-car entertainment and consumption, thereby achieving a closed loop. Simply put, when the car is equipped with the Internet of Vehicles, users can interact with voice, touch and other methods to wake up the AI assistant. The AI assistant will help you accurately recommend restaurants, music, online ordering, reservations, online, Buy tickets, etc.

For example, when you are driving, you can always ask which hot pot near the AI assistant is delicious, let it help you book the location of the sea fishing at 7 o'clock in the evening, so that when you arrive at the restaurant, you can eat directly without ranking. .
