Hubei Transport Investment Group Showcases 29 New Technological Innovations at the 15th International Transportation Technology and Equipment Exhibition

Intelligent highways, next-generation intelligent bridge health monitoring platforms, bridge inspection drones, decentralized intelligent sewage treatment systems, unmanned toll collection robots… On September 25th, at the 15th International Transportation Technology and Equipment Exhibition (CHINATRANSPO2023), Hubei Transport Investment Group unveiled 29 cutting-edge transportation technology innovations and equipment, encompassing the entire lifecycle of transportation infrastructure.

In the realm of smart transportation, Hubei Transport Investment Group has innovatively applied grating array technology to monitor bridges and road surfaces. This led to the establishment of the first smart highway in Hubei Province, the Ezhou Huahu Airport Highway. Additionally, they developed an intelligent bridge health monitoring system, employing a range of intelligent detection equipment including climbing robots and bridge inspection drones to achieve continuous, all-weather sensing.

In the domain of digital transportation, Hubei Transport Investment Group has established a comprehensive platform for traffic planning and decision support, enabling functions such as data localization, classification queries, and multi-perspective, multi-level analysis of planning routes. Leveraging GIS, BIM, and Internet technologies, they’ve developed a complete set of end-to-end, specialized digital integrated solutions, facilitating forward BIM design, one-click drawing, real-time composite project displays, and GIS+BIM digital platform delivery.

They’ve independently pioneered an integrated pre-survey solution utilizing digital aerial photography, multi-platform LiDAR, and multi-beam unmanned measurement boats to scan proposed project areas, generating full-color, all-element point clouds and creating high-precision digital elevation models. This “high-precision and cutting-edge” survey technology greatly enhances the accuracy and speed of survey and design work.

In terms of intelligent equipment, Hubei Transport Investment Group has established a comprehensive platform for the integrated operation and management of intelligent transportation, as well as a smart tunnel management platform. This allows for real-time perception of the entire road network’s status, swift handling of emergency events, and scientific decision-making for road network maintenance. Through the innovative use of technologies like digital twinning and AI vision, they’ve incorporated a new generation of IoT intelligent PLC equipment developed in-house, seamlessly integrating tunnel power distribution, lighting, ventilation, and traffic signaling systems into the management platform. This breakthrough dismantles data barriers between original control systems, forming a new tunnel management model that is safe, efficient, low-carbon, and cost-effective.

In green transportation, they’ve introduced world-leading MABR membrane technology to develop decentralized intelligent sewage treatment systems. This addresses previous issues of substandard and unstable wastewater treatment along highways, boasting advantages of longevity, high efficiency, modularity, and intelligence.

“Carbon-linked” transportation technology serves green travel. In this new phase of development, Hubei Transport Investment Group is focused on its core responsibilities, aiming to become a world-class enterprise and achieve “double-billion” investments and revenue by 2023. Through technology-driven innovation and a dedication to meeting the public’s demands for efficient, intelligent, and green travel options, they are contributing to Hubei’s deep integration into the Belt and Road Initiative, the acceleration of constructing an inland open economic hub, the development of a demonstration area for a transportation powerhouse, and the creation of a “Nine Provinces Thoroughfare” for the new era.

A spokesperson for Hubei Transport Investment Group affirmed their commitment to the strategy of innovation-driven development. They will actively implement strategic initiatives such as building a transportation powerhouse and creating a “source of strategies” for transportation technology. They will vigorously promote research in technological innovation in the transportation sector and the application of research findings, continuously enhancing the modernization of transportation infrastructure services, and making every effort to ensure the people’s enjoyable travel experiences.
