Major events of the month

A MOU Signing Ceremony for R&D Cooperation of Automated Intermodal Transport Systems
A MOU Signing Ceremony for R&D Cooperation of Automated Intermodal Transport Systems
The Korea Transport Institute (Lee Taihyeong, director general of the Department of Logistics Research), signed a four-way memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport (Oh Songchun, director general of Advanced Logistics Division), the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries (Jung Junho, director general of the Smart Marine Logistics Promotion Team), and the Yeosu Gwangyang Port Authority (Kim Seonjong, director general of the Operation Division) on Friday, March 26th.
Through this MOU, they plan for mutual collaboration in various fields as follows: mutual cooperation in joint research; support for research funding to realize a full-scale demonstration model of automated intermodal transport systems; provision of a test bed site to realize the full-scale demonstration model of automated intermodal transport systems; matters requiring cooperation to realize the full-scale demonstration model of automated intermodal transport systems; other matters regarding the use and maintenance of the test bed after the research period, and plans to utilize related technologies in Gwangyang Port.

Policy Research Reports

Research on the basic direction of establishing an autonomous driving complex
Research on the basic direction of establishing an autonomous driving complex

The Korean government has decided on the policy direction to realize the future image of the 4th Industrial Revolution by achieving the commercialization of autonomous vehicles. To secure an edge in the next auto market, symbolized by autonomous driving, we are accelerating preparations for the future by rapidly improving related laws and systems and expanding infrastructure. The transportation service of the future is predicted to show various mobility

services such as shuttle services, robot taxis, freight truck & bus platooning, unmanned delivery, and patrol, which are all based on autonomous driving. In preparation for the commercialization of these autonomous driving services, the National Agency for Administrative City Construction (NAACC) is preparing a policy aiming to create an autonomous driving complex in Sejong City.Traditionally, the construction of an integrated complex is a way to enhance the existing industry by applying it to the field as new technologies arrive. In an autonomous driving complex, it is necessary to use a strategy to promote R&D and industrial functions in parallel physically. The autonomous driving complex needs to construct a physical infrastructure for autonomous driving, Future Mobility Technology Center (FMTC), and R&D and industry support center converge. Besides, it is necessary to proceed by adding a policy support program.Sejong City is designed to enable effective mobility services by establishing a connection between internal circulation BRT and regional BRT. To utilize effectively and efficiently for the BRT system, we need to introduce a multi-transfer center where autonomous driving and conventional transportation modes can transfer. We hope that an autonomous driving complex to advance public transportation services using BRT and develop related technologies and industries. Based on these efforts, Sejong City expects to accelerate the commercialization of autonomous driving and become a leading city in autono mous driving.
