Applying BeiDou to Internet of Everything to highlight conference talks

CHENGDU, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Discussions around the prospects of applying China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) to the Internet of Everything will highlight the 11th China Satellite Navigation Conference that opened in southwest China's Chengdu City on Monday.

The three-day event, consisting of forums, academic exchanges, and other sub-events, will see experts and scholars in satellite navigation and related fields at home and abroad exchange their ideas around themes of "science and technology" and "application and industrialization."

It is the first significant event of exchanges on satellite navigation to be hosted by China following the commissioning on July 31, 2020, of the BDS-3 system. BDS-3 is the first space infrastructure the country has provided for global public service.

BDS-related products have been exported to more than 120 countries and regions so far.

According to Yang Changfeng, chief designer of the BDS, China aims to finish building a comprehensive national positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) system based on the BDS by 2035.
