Terminus Group, a global leader in China's artificial intelligence and robotics, is building its first global AI CITY in Southwestern China's Chongqing Municipality.
Technology-wise, AI CITY was created during a trend towards CT integration in everyday life, in which AI, 5G, IoT and big data are all making rapid progress. As for the urban experience, AI can offer customized services for individuals and remotely upgrade its functions. AI CITY also bridges the gap between data silos for individual scenarios and enables cross-scenario data operability, including both software and hardware, in addition to helping society achieve carbon neutrality.
The futuristic development project is located by the Fengming River in Financial Street Area in Western (Chongqing) Science City, where the smart industry has grown into one of the major economic pillars in recent years. The Financial Street Area is the innovation hub connecting smart industries and finance business. It serves as the core function carrier and start-up demonstration model of the high-tech Zone of Chongqing. Relying on finance, it aims to lead the agglomeration of high-end service industries by vigorously developing "Finance Plus" businesses.
The hub accelerates the transformation of business models and office scenario services, strengthens the financial role the Science City plays in the region and is nowadays becoming the epicenter of the innovation and venture capital companies, as well as science and technology-backed financial institutions.
In 2020, Terminus Group launched the first program as part of its AI CITY deployment, AI PARK, in Chongqing. When Terminus Group was making the plan for AI CITY’s first project AI PARK in Chongqing during the pre-construction stage, it used the urban smart planning engine and designed the park as a smart and sustainable zone where nature and technology could co-exist harmoniously.
Terminus Group using TACOS (Terminus AI CITY Operating System) as the digital base to manage city's software, hardware and ecosystem, and effectively fill in the missing link between different smart solutions. This will prevent the lack of synergy between offered services and will help optimize the redundant, often excessively expensive construction process. This is not only a management style that leverages open platform operations to reduce the cost of urban smart construction, but also a trend that empowers social consensus to drive futuristic intelligent urban infrastructure.
TACOS (Terminus AI CITY Operation System), a city-level operation system developed by the company to link the hardware and services to the clouds and ensure the digital synchronization intelligent applications in different urban scenarios, including smart vehicle, smart education and smart community.
Terminus Group AI PARK will serve as the first phase "pilot facility" for the entire AI CITY "Could Valley" development project based in Chongqing. The park is equipped with various ICT features, 360-degree robotic services, as well as AIoT-driven management centers. The visitors can experience various smart solutions including smart communities, smart fire protection, smart security services, smart finance, and smart e-commerce deployed onto the digital layers operating on the AI PARK digital platform to support its functional operations.
From the AI PARK in Chongqing, through the World Intelligence Congress (WIC) in Tianjin, a growing number of megacities are partnering with Terminus Group to boost the development of AI CITIES, such as Wuhan, Deyang-Chengdu and Hangzhou etc. At the same time, the company goes straight to the Expo 2020 Dubai - Terminus Group remains an advocate of the digitalization of urban management, which has launched 10,000 intelligent scenario solutions in cities worldwide up to date and accumulated rich industry experience.
Once the AI CITY is completed, it will not only improve urban life and help cities become more sustainable, but also build an smart industrial platform for the city, as well as promoting the transformation and upgrading of the urban economy.
Moreover, it will provide smart scenarios for the landing and application of many new technologies and products in the field of urban science and technology. With its landing overseas, it will also provide a platform for further communication between China and other cutting-edge technological partners around the world in related fields.
