GM demonstrates its Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) capability on public roads of Shanghai

GM successfully demonstrated its Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) capability on public roads outside Jiading Auto Innovation Park in Shanghai. Conducted in collaboration with Shanghai International Auto City and Shanghai Song Hong Intelligent Automotive Technology Co. Ltd., the demonstration featured testing vehicles that can receive real-time data from traffic lights on signal phasing and timing.

GM has a vision for a world with zero emissions, zero crashes and zero congestion. It is well aligned with the Shanghai Declaration jointly published by the Shanghai city government and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology today. The Declaration will proactively promote research and development in intelligent and connected vehicles.

Based on the V2X application layer industry standard, the Green Light Optimization Speed Advisor (GLOSA) V2I application can provide drivers an advised speed for reaching the next intersection when the traffic light is green. This alert would help drivers avoid the dangerous decision of braking abruptly if their view is impeded and better control their driving speed to go through an intersection without stopping.

Developed by a working group led by GM, together with Tsinghua University and Chang’an Auto, China’s first V2X application layer industry standard was officially released in September 2017. It allows automakers to develop interoperable V2X applications for data interaction and offers them a mechanism to use a single communication technology for the development and commercialization of all V2X applications.

GM is one of the authors of the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicle Road Map, which was released last year. It provides a guideline for the research and development activities of manufacturers and future policy development by the government.
