China’s capital is seeking to become a model city for intelligent connected vehicles (ICV), aiming to complete a 5G Internet of vehicles in key areas of the city in 2020.

The goals are set in a four-year action plan on innovative development of ICV in the city, recently issued by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology.

According to the action plan, Beijing will strive to become a demonstration city of the 5G Internet of vehicles, promote the construction of intelligent connected environments for expressways, including Yanqing-Chongli Highway, Beijing-Xiongan Highway and Beijing’s new airport highway and build special lanes for ICV.

Beijing will also take the lead in large-scale demonstration operations of ICV in various scenarios, strengthen infrastructure construction, and achieve comprehensive application of ICV ahead of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, said the plan.
