A Virtuous Cycle Between the Automotive Industry and Transport Policy: Focusing on the Impacts of Transport Policy on the Automotive Industry

The current form of automobile, using the high density of energy without human- or animal-oriented powers, has dramatically increased mobility and greatly influenced urbanization, due to the spatial expansion of the living space that enables our daily commute. In addition, the

automobile industry has considerably contributed to the improvement of productivity and the creation of employment. It strengthens its position as a national representative industry with connections to other interdisciplinary fields.
However, we are facing the need for change since the production and consumption of the industry have already experienced saturation. The movement of change is accelerating in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution triggered by several topics: artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, big data, and autonomous driving. Automobile manufacturers have prepared autonomous/automated vehicles and shared mobility so that the public can smoothly understand the key technologies toward the changing movements in the transport sector. The changing movement continues in the policy as well. There have been requests to review the mobility-related schemes and policies associated with the automotive industry.
Thus, this research aims to diagnose the direction in which the structure of the automobile industry is being reorganized, focusing on automated vehicles, electric vehicles, and shared mobility, and to present suggestions on potential policies and strategies to establish measures to revitalize the automotive industry in the midst of transformation.
In particular, we employed the system dynamics method to analyze the impact of traffic policy on the automotive industry and study how the promotion of certain traffic policies has affected the industry with statistical analysis.
Finally, we surveyed professionals in the field of the automotive industry and traffic policy to derive potential projects, conducted the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to prioritize the projects, and then proposed strategies and implementations of transport policy that can form a virtuous cycle between the automotive industry and transport policy.
