"This is the Beidou Wireless Emergency Positioning System developed by our research team. This system is mainly used on vessels. When sailing on the sea, the vessels could enter some areas where signal bars are lost. So in case of emergencies, this system will be launched automatically by the sensors, and then automatically send signals to our rescue platform. It can shorten the responding time in maritime rescue to within 10 minutes."

Storyline


China's Beidou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) has been widely used in various sectors while it launched the operation of global coverage constellation.
Data from an Internet of Vehicles (IoV) platform show that 95 percent of the 6 million vehicles used for passenger and hazardous chemical transportation in China have installed the BDS, which is able to help enhance driving safety by reminding drivers of avoiding fatigue driving and speeding.

Zhang Jiantong, a researcher with the China Transport Communication and Information Center, said that through such message interactions, they have established a big data platform, which shows the rate of road accidents in 2017 dropped by 50 percent compared with that of 2011. This means that their Beidou technology has played a crucial role in enhancing transportation safety in people's daily life.

The Beidou positioning and navigation service has also been applied to maritime rescue, according to Zhang.

"This is the Beidou Wireless Emergency Positioning System developed by our research team. This system is mainly used on vessels. When sailing on the sea, the vessels could enter some areas where signal bars are lost. So in case of emergencies, this system will be launched automatically by the sensors, and then automatically send signals to our rescue platform. It can shorten the responding time in maritime rescue to within 10 minutes," said Zhang.

The BDS is also playing a key role in the field of weather forecast.

"Using the Beidou technology in upper-air, ground and satellite observations is like conducting an all-around CT scan over the atmosphere. The technology helps us to capture the meterological phenomena more precisely, and better serve the country's disaster prevention and relief efforts by sending pre-warning messages to the public timely," said Cao Yunchang, a researcher with the Meteorological Observation Center, China Meteorological Administration.

The BDS has also been recognized by many international organizations including the International Civil Aviation Organization and the International Maritime Organization, and will offer free search and rescue services for global users, according to the experts.
