Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The TA consultant will provide the executing agency (EA) with advice in designing, performing and evaluating the tests of V2V and V2l technologies. The EA plans to perform technical testing of V2V and V2I on a 10 km section of national highway G4 located near Changsha City in Hunan Province. The section is equipped with five WiMax base stations and one China Mobile Multimedia Broadcasting station. As these communications infrastructure facilities do not currently support V2V and V2I implementation, the test activity needs to be considered as a part of the tasks of identifying technological issues for developing connected vehicle in the PRC.

The TA will require 9 person-months of international and 18 person-months of national consulting services to carry out the terms of reference (Appendix 3). International and national individual consultants and firms will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The selection of the consulting firm and individual consultants will use QCBS with a quality-cost ratio of 80:20.
