On April 15, 2020, MIIT, Ministry of Public Security and SAC published the notice of the issuance of the Guidelines for the Construction of the National Standards System for the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) Industry (Intelligent Vehicle Management). The Guidelines aim to establish a standards system for the intelligent management of vehicles (hereinafter, the “IVM standards system”) to serve the development of the IoV industry.
The IVM standards system plan includes five parts: Basic Standards, ICV Registration Management, Identity Authentication and Security, ICV Operation Management, and Vehicle-Road Coordination Control and Services. The Guidelines also incorporate a specific description of standard classification.
MIIT and SAC have designed a complete IoV standards system containing six subsystems: General Requirements, Information and Communication, Electronic Products and Service, Intelligent Connected Vehicles (ICV), Intelligent Vehicle Management, and the Intelligent Transport System (ITS), and have released guidelines for the development of the first five subsystems. The guidelines for the last subsystem will be the last piece of the puzzle. Given the Ministry of Transport (MoT) has long been in charge of China’s ITS standardization and has developed a relatively mature ITS standards system, how MIIT coordinates with MoT and integrates MoT’s ITS systems into its IoV standards system is yet to be seen.
The full text of the Guidelines (Chinese version) is available on the official website of MIIT: Guidelines for the Construction of the National Standards System for the Internet of Vehicles Industry (Intelligent Vehicle Management).
