Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is in an important period of rapid technological breakthrough and application growth, which will vigorously promote the low-altitude economy development. The low-altitude Internet of Intelligences (IoI) is the cornerstone of the UAV industry development and an important infrastructure to realize the "human-UVA-physical objects" fusion and AIoT (All in Internet of Thing) in low-altitude airspace. The construction of low-altitude IoI aims to realize the transition from the traditional Internet to the AIoT by the space-air-ground-sea network infrastructure, and to form a physical cyberspace for the digital and intelligent operation of low-altitude services. It can provide a digital, intelligent, and networked environment for the UAV industry, which is of great significance for promoting the development of low-altitude economy.

Key words: low-altitude Internet of Intelligences (IoI), UAV industry, low-altitude economy, new type of infrastructure, networked information transmission, digital operation space, intelligent airspace management
