Joint laboratory to explore innovation in autonomous vehicles
PolyU has joined forces with an institute in Guangzhou to conduct research into autonomous vehicles and intelligent navigation systems. Technological advances mean vehicles will soon be able to exchange information with other vehicles and smart devices along roads.
To explore innovations in this area further, the University has partnered with the Institute of Software Application Technology, Guangzhou and Chinese Academy of Sciences (GZIS) to create a Joint Laboratory of Collaborative Communication, Navigation, Positioning and Sensing. Dr Hsu Li-Ta, Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Division of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering, is leading a team from PolyU to work with GZIS, focusing on intelligent navigation and unmanned vehicle communication and positioning, vehicle networking, and vehicle-road collaborative sensing technologies and equipment.
Research from the Laboratory will not only foster the development of Intelligent Connected Vehicles (ICVs) and autonomous driving in Guangzhou, but also across other major Mainland cities, after the central government highlighted its support for the industry in the Strategy for Innovation and Development of Intelligent Vehicles, issued by the National Development and Reform Commission of China earlier this year
