Introduction of 111 Program for Discipline Innovation of Hydrological and Ecological Environment and Water Safety in Acrid and Semi-Acrid Regions

Jointly organized by Ministry of Education and State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, 111 Project us is also called Talent Introduction Plan for Discipline Innovation of Higher Institutions. Its aim lies in introducing more than 1,000 internationally well-known scholars from higher institutions or research institutes which rank among the top 100 in the world, together with excellent researchers at home, to form a high-level research team, constructing about 100 world first-class national bases for discipline innovation, creating research achievements with international influence, and improving the universities’ comprehensive ability and international status.

As National 111 Project of the year 2008, Chang’an University’s 111 Program for Hydrological and Ecological Environment and Water Safety in Acrid and Semi-Acrid Regions is sponsored by the university and hosted by Professor Li Peicheng, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Acrid and semi-acrid regions occupy about 35% of the world’s land area and the number in China is about 50%. These regions own ample land and sunshine, rich mineral and energy resources, and are important space for the future development of relevant countries. The main limits of exploring the regions are lack of water and harsh hydro-ecological environment. Therefore, starting international research collaboration and putting emphasis on introducing foreign talent are of great theoretical and practical significance in hydrological and ecological environment, water safety and harmonious water use with neighbor countries.

This program is organized by Research Institute of Water and Development, taking Northwest China as the standing point, it emphasizes on central Asian regions including Xinjiang and widely scans worldwide acrid and semi-acrid regions. Actively starting technological collaboration with countries in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, this program provides theoretical foundation and technological support for solving the water resource and environmental problems of countries in acrid and semi-acrid regions to keep water safety and harmony between water and human.

Rich achievements have been obtained since the implement of the program, and the research content and definition of hydro-ecology have been scientifically defined. The program has introduced 18 scholars and the dispatched researchers together with jointly-nurtured talents amounts to more than 20. The number of scientific programs of provincial level and above around the subject of hydrological and ecological environment and water safety is 21. Two research-industry bases are constructed and more than 200 scientific papers and dozens of works have been published. Scholars and members of 111 Program have applied the achievements into teaching and research.



Introduction of 111Project on Information of Vehicle-Infrastructure Sensing and ITS

Based on the national key discipline “Traffic Information Engineering and Control” of Chang’an University and the scientific innovation team of “Multi-source Heterogeneous Traffic Information Intelligence Detection and Fusion Technology” of Ministry of Education, 111Project on Information of Vehicle-Infrastructure Sensing and ITS introduces world first class research team to cooperate and aims at core technology of “Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperative System Based on Car Networking” to meet the crucial demands of national road transportation industry in order to provide theoretical basis and practical support for the development of national car networking and cooperative intelligent transportation system. The main research fields include tesffic information sensing and fusion technology, vehicle-infrastructure cooperative communication and networking technology, and ttraffic system modeling and emulation technology.


111 Project base possesses first class research environment and experiment conditions on the foundation of Chang’an University’s two national key disciplines: “Traffic Information Engineering and Control” and “Traffic Transportation Planning and Management”, and three research centers namely “National Engineering Laboratory of Road Maintenance Technology and Equipment Testing”, “Key Laboratory of Vehicle Transportation Security Technology” and Research Center of Road Transportation Intelligent Detection and Equipment Engineering of Shaanxi Province”.

Till now, five research platforms have been completed to provide favorable experiment environment and technique support for the development of the project, namely “Comprehensive Traffic Information Processing and Sharing Platform”, “Intelligent Vehicle-Mounted Testing Technology Platform”, “Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperative Testing Platform Based on 4G-LTE”, “Road Traffic Emulation Technology Platform Based on Virtual Reality”, and “Intelligent Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperative Semi-Physical Emulation Platform”.


In recent years, national research members together with international experts Professor M.Mcdonald, Professor C.Richard.Liu, Professor Weixing Wang and Professor Pramod Vashny have carried out 10 research projects, jointly-published more than 70 academic papers, and applied for 7 patents together.
