Beijing, September 9 (ZXS) -- With the vigorous development of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence in recent years, the field of transportation construction is also constantly undergoing technological updates and changes. In this context, how can China further expand the application space of digital and intelligent transportation infrastructure and plug in "smart" wings for transportation? At the Global Sustainable Transport Summit Forum (26) held on 25-26, many participants discussed this topic in depth.

With the blessing of advanced technologies such as information technology and cloud computing, the digital transformation in the field of transportation construction has accelerated its evolution. Wang Jianping, chairman of China Railway Construction Group Co., Ltd., said that at present, the application of digital technology in the field of transportation construction can greatly improve the efficiency of construction management, construction quality and safety. For example, through BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology, the construction process can be comprehensively simulated and simulated, assisting project managers to optimize the construction process, strengthen the whole process control, reduce construction difficulty, and improve construction efficiency.

"As international engineering projects become larger and more complex, the application of digital technology in the field of transportation construction is becoming more and more extensive, and this trend is increasingly emerging in infrastructure markets such as the Middle East, Europe and the United States." Wang Jianping said.

At present, the integration of traditional transportation industry and new generation information technology is accelerating, which has inserted "wings" for sustainable transportation development. Huang Wei, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, pointed out that the deep application and cross-border integration of a new generation of information technology are promoting revolutionary changes in the development mode of transportation, and the new generation of intelligent traffic management system and human-vehicle-road coordination system integrating networking, intelligence and collaboration have become important frontier technologies in the transportation field, thereby promoting the development and evolution of the entire transportation system to autonomous transportation.

Huang Wei further said that from a longer-term perspective, the autonomous transportation system is a more advanced stage in the development of intelligent transportation system, and it is a new intelligent mobile interconnected transportation system, which will trigger major changes in traffic patterns and modes in the past hundred years.

As a typical representative of innovation-driven and intelligent transformation, China's rail transit equipment manufacturing industry has made great progress in recent years. Fei Dongbin, director of the State Railway Administration of China, said that China's railways are actively promoting the transformation of development mode, the level of greening of railway infrastructure and technical equipment is constantly improving, railway energy consumption and major pollutant emissions continue to decrease, the level of integrated development of digital technology and railway business is accelerating, and the intelligent railway technology system, data system and standard system are initially constructed, which is stepping into a new era of high-quality development.

At present, China has become the only country in the world to achieve commercial operation of high-speed rail at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour, setting a benchmark for commercial operation of high-speed rail in the world, and showing the world "Chinese speed" in the most intuitive way. In this process, digital technology and railway business have been integrated and developed, and advanced technologies such as Beidou navigation and 5G communication have been successfully applied in high-speed rail, and some fields have reached the world's leading level.

"We use intelligent signaling systems to improve train efficiency and safety; Adopt new energy power system to reduce carbon emissions during train operation; Through the digital monitoring and diagnosis system, the full life cycle management and predictive maintenance of transportation equipment are realized, and the reliability and durability of transportation equipment are improved. Tian Hongqi, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that there must be more digital application scenarios waiting for us to explore in the future.

As Wang Tongzhu, chairman of CCCC, said: "Adhere to digital transformation and development, and promote interconnection with smart construction; Adhere to innovation-driven development, and promote interconnection with scientific research. "Over the years, China has adhered to innovation-led and made great progress in the field of intelligent transportation: intelligent networked vehicles have entered the "fast lane" of development, high-speed railway technology has made breakthroughs, and the overall level of port digitalization construction has leapt forward... While promoting the sustainable development of the industry, it also contributes "Chinese wisdom" to global connectivity. (End)
