The Internet of Vehicles (IOV) is an integrated computer network supporting intelligent traffic management, dynamic information service and vehicle control. Through improvements to the design of vehicles and the application of intelligent transport systems, challenges related to automobile transportation in the increasingly urbanized Asia-Pacific region can be met: accidents can be minimized, vehicle emissions reduced and increasing road congestion can be managed.

The Internet of Vehicles is a multi-year project; it promotes cooperative innovation and capacity building for developing economies regarding the broad and efficient use of mobile connectivity in intelligent transport systems.

The next installment of the project will take place on 14 - 16 September 2017 in Shanghai:  Mobile & Mobility Connectivity (MMC) 2017: 4th APEC Internet of Vehicles (IOV) Symposium.
