Didi Chuxing looks beyond ride-hailing to help Chinese cities tackle transport challenge

On Thursday the company launched an integrated solution for smart city traffic management by harnessing data generated by its platform that compiles roughly 25 million rides per day.
Didi is the latest among Chinese tech firms to tap into smart city products and services, a global market worth US$1.6 trillion by 2020, according to estimates from research firm Frost & Sullivan.
The Didi Smart Transportation Brain is designed to help city planners improve traffic efficiency by providing know-how in infrastructure design and traffic flow measurement, such as the installation and management of smart traffic lights.
