Automotive software plays a key role in driving the digital transformation of the auto industry, said an official with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on Tuesday in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality.

The city hosted the China's inaugural Intelligent Vehicle Software Ecology Conference from Monday to Tuesday, drawing to it over 500 experts, scholars and corporate representatives for in-depth discussions over topics such as automotive operating systems, chips, open source models, and the synergy of software and hardware.

"We plan to carry out open source projects in key areas such as intelligent driving, build high-quality open source communities, and establish an open source ecological community. We want to use open source models to promote the innovative development of basic software for smart cars," said Wang Yanqing, director of the MIIT's Department of Information Technology Development.

An official with the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) pledged to promote the integrated development of the industrial chains of centrally administered state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and work with companies of all sizes that are involved in the supply chains and specialized and sophisticated small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to build open source platforms.

"We will support the application of basic automotive software and automotive chips, accelerate iteration, and work with various entities to create an industrial ecosystem that is integrated and mutually beneficial to deliver win-win results," said Gou Ping, vice chairman of SASAC.
