Chengdu NB-IoT Smart IoT Lab Established
On October 23, 2018, the Tianfu Software Park and the Chengdu branch of the China Mobile signed a contract for the joint establishment of the "Tianfu Software Park NB-IoT Smart IoT Project" and founded the "NB-IoT Smart IoT Laboratory". According to the cooperation agreement, the laboratory will be built under a concerted effort between the three parties of the Tianfu Software Park, Chengdu branch of China Mobile and the China Mobile IoT Company Limited. The smart IoT lab will be set up as a resource platform to serve more internet-of-things companies and forge an IoT industrial ecology. Narrow Band-Internet of Things technology, or NB-IoT, is noted for qualities such as wide coverage, low cost, low power consumption and support for massive number of connections, and is a revolutionary technical breakthrough in relevant fields. This cooperation for the smart industrial park is primarily driven by the need to use NB-IoT in developing intelligent vehicle parking and guidance system. Said smart vehicle parking and guidance system will use Zone B of the Tianfu Software Park as project trial site and conduct fully automated and intelligent control of 387 above-ground and 739 underground parking spaces.
