On November 8-11, 2023, the AHK Greater China Xceleration Days 2023 was successfully held in Shanghai, China. Over 900 domestic and international guests from political, business, academic, and research spheres have come together to experience AHK Greater China’s most significant event of the year. Dr. Clas Neumann, Chairperson of the Board of German Chamber of Commerce in China - Shanghai, Mr. Hua Yuan, Deputy Mayor of the Shanghai Municipal People's Government, Dr. Patricia Flor, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to China, Mr. Wu Ken, Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Germany (via video address), and Mr. Wan Gang, President of the China Association of Sciences & Tech, delivered welcome speeches at the opening ceremony.
Complementary advantages and win-win co-operation in the automotive industry
China and Germany have extensive cooperation in the field of automotive industry. Germany has a century of deep accumulation of automotive technology. With a century-old accumulation of automotive technology, Germany leads the world in production technology, high-end manufacturing, semiconductor, sensing and other forward-looking technologies, with a complete industrial chain resource and high brand awareness and reputation among global consumers.
China has the world's largest automotive market, with a rich variety of applications. Due to its pioneering advantage and strong investment in the field of intelligent and new energy vehicle, the domestic intelligent and electrified automobile innovation level is at the forefront of the world. The younger, more diversified and more open mindset and concept of Chinese auto consumers make it easier for new technologies, and other innovative activities to achieve commercial success in the Chinese market.
Under the trend of intelligence development, it is the unanimous consensus of Chinese and German enterprises on how to further improve the safety of intelligent driving and accelerate the mass production of high-level ADAS functions. The intelligent automotive industry chain is further integrating and improving with the joint efforts of both sides.
Against this backdrop, Chinese and German
enterprises are actively cooperating to complement each other's strengths
through joint R&D, market development, and investment in setting up
factories. Chinese new energy vehicle enterprises have set up factories
overseas, and traditional OEMs such as the Volkswagen Group have invested in
China and cooperated with leading technology enterprises. The two sides have
cooperated in cutting-edge fields such as new-generation vehicle platforms,
electronic and electrical architectures, software architectures, intelligent
cockpits, and power batteries. Both sides are deepening technology exchanges,
promoting industrial transformation and growing hand in hand in fair
Green and low-carbon life requires intelligent transportation transformation and upgrading
To combat global climate change, to achieve carbon neutrality and to promote green, low-carbon and sustainable development is a common goal for China and Germany. Therefore, the green and low-carbon upgrading of the transport sector has become a priority for the Chinese and German governments and companies to further deepen their co-operation.
In 2015, the transport authorities of the two countries launched a low-carbon transport cooperation project to exchange ideas in the direction of transport digitization, innovative technologies and transport integration. This joint effort is promoting the sustainable and low-carbon development of future transportation.
At the enterprise level, numerous innovative products for intelligent transport are emerging, and have been widely demonstrated and applied in China and Germany. Among them, the roadside sensing intelligent transport products and solutions developed by LiangDao Intelligence are running in many cities in Germany. Through the high-precision 3D sensing capability of LiDAR. LiangDao's products provide strong data support for the intelligent upgrading of traffic, help to improve the efficiency of urban traffic, optimize the traffic system, reduce traffic carbon emissions, and achieve green and sustainable mobility.
LiangDao: Adhering to the Path of Sino-German Synergistic Development
LiangDao is a global company that specializes in LiDAR system innovation. With strong Chinese and German genes, the management team has studied in Germany for many years and has rich experience in R&D in German companies. Founded in 2017, LiangDao has always adhered to the Sino-German synergistic joint development concept and innovative management thinking from the very beginning. Aiming at the Sino-German local market, LiangDao customizes and applies technology and products in the field of intelligent driving and intelligent transport.
Over the past six years, LiangDao Intelligence has established close cooperation with the German business community, and has received support from the German Ministry of Transport and Informatization, the Ministry of Economy and Energy and other departments for forward-looking research projects. Additionally, it is an important partner of Berlin Partner, and has collaborated with well-known German large-scale enterprises such as Bosch, AVL, CARIAD, and Fraunhofer on advanced technology research to promote more intelligent, digitalized, and green low-carbon modes of transportation.
At the AHK Greater China Xceleration Days 2023, Dr. Xueming Ju, CEO of LiangDao, took part in the roundtable discussion on "Redefining Mobility", and when asked how China and Germany can establish a more appropriate partnership in the era of intelligent driving, he said frankly: The era of intelligent driving is rapidly changing. China and Germany need to not only focus on the technical aspect of cooperation, but also find more innovative ways to collaborate at the commercial level. As a company that has been working in China and Germany since its establishment, LiangDao sees itself as a bridge to promote the cooperation between Chinese and German companies and expects to play an important role in this process.
