The “Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Team”of Chunghwa Telecom, adhering to the objective of developing a “Moving Space” digital service and creating a moving space value chain, has integrated the advanced technologies of electronics, communication, navigation, information, computer and control in constructing a cloud-based telematics management platform which successfully offers application services with seamless connection among people, vehicles and roads. At the same time, it has integrated the industrial capabilities of companies such as International Integrated Systems, THI Consultants, TMS Technologies, Maxwin Technology, Jasslin and RealTime and work together with them to expand the industry chain for more opportunities in the innovative development of information communication, which further drives the development of applications in intelligent transportation system (ITS) in Taiwan.

The telematics management platform of Chunghwa Telecom is providing service for the largest Advanced Public Transportation System(APTS) in Taiwan, with a complete collection of information on the bus routes of 1,252 highways across Taiwan and the locations of 100,242 bus stops. Currently, it covers about 8,600 highway buses and city buses. This has achieved the objective of providing e-management for highway bus fleets through telematics technology and created a win-win situation for the people, passenger transportation operators, government administrative authorities and the industries. Our team is also assisting Taiwan Telematics Industry Association (TTIA) in laying down the first set of “Industrial Standards for Intelligent Buses” which provides a uniform standard for in-vehicle system communication. This can effectively improve the reliability and safety of public transportation and enhance the development of public transport environment in Taiwan.

In addition, Chunghwa Telecom’s Commercial Vehicle Operation Services (CVOS) covers about 17,000 vehicles in the areas of taxi fleet, logistics vehicle fleet, rehabilitation buses, etc. It is the first telecommunication company in Taiwan to provide, in the role of a telematics service provider (TSP), a complete solution for comprehensive vehicle fleet positioning. On such basis, products are developed for customer testing, followed by production under contracts and service provision.

On such basis, a management process and commercial model is established for product development, customer testing, production under contracts, service provision, going online, repair and maintenance as well as marketing and promotion. This can reduce the lead time of product launch and increase customer satisfaction. Chunghwa Telecom provides differentiated commercial vehicle services which are superior to industrial standard to logistics vehicle fleets. These include provision of real time driving video and photographs, real time temperature monitoring in low-temperature logistics and information on real time driving recording. As the in-vehicle system is connected with a video-type driving recorder, real time images as well as information on driving records, including vehicle speed, engine rotational speed and rapid acceleration, can be transmitted back on real time basis when necessary , which can improve the customer’s real time management of driving safety. This will be an improvement from the previous management mode of investigation and record retrieval after an event had occurred as effective management can now be performed by reminding the drivers in advance on safety and preventive measures. Based on driver behaviors, assessment standard can also be set to generate driving assessment reports, which will raise the efficiency of operation management significantly. In terms of low-temperature logistics management, the company can meet customer requirements on temperature control in the quality management of low-temperature goods. Return transmission of real time temperature can provide warning in advance of a temperature failure for the goods. This solves the problem of relying on temperature recorders which can only be read and checked in the factory after occurrence of an event, thus improving the effectiveness of quality management for low-temperature goods.

The “Intelligent Transportation System Team” carries out innovative research and development persistently. Recently, it has engaged actively in research and development of core technologies in the field of traffic information monitoring, including CVP (Vehicle detection technology through mobile network signaling), VD (fixed mode vehicle detection device), GVP (GPS vehicle detection technology) as well as integrated technologies. Traffic information service is also developed in combination with cloud computing technology. The“Traffic Info” (路況快易通) App was released in July 2012, which can provide real time traffic information with higher population coverage. In terms of copyright arrangement, we have obtained 42 patents inside and outside Taiwan, with 44 applications in process. Our team is persistent in conducting innovative research and development of products with ITS application, pioneering new ICT application services. At the same time, we also endeavor to undertake corporate social responsibility. Among such endeavors, the research results of CVO and APTS have supported environmental protection by saving energy and reducing carbon emission. The effectiveness attained in public transport management and driving safety are signs of our commitment towards social responsibility and our efforts in making a contribution.
