For the last 30 years, KOTI has played a leading role in successful construction and efficient operation of transport infrastructure in the Republic of Korea. KOTI has also contributed to national economic development and higher quality of life through comprehensive planning, policy analysis, and technology development.
Transport is now required to play even more active roles for higher quality of life as well as economic growth. Safe, fast, and affordable transport has become a public service that the government should be responsible for. Furthermore, the fourth industrial revolution based on super-connected and super-intelligent digital technology brings new changes and opportunities for transport, logistics, and aviation systems.
KOTI will be a leader in human-centered and safe transport system, fast and comfortable commuting, new employment in transport and logistics through national agenda research, long-term and basic research, and data-based policy research. KOTI will also become a world-renowned excellent research center in the areas of big data technology, autonomous vehicle, unmanned aerial vehicle, logistics 4.0, and smart mobility. We will make combined efforts to address current issues in transport and realize a new transport system.
