Interview with Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies (EASTS, KOTI) President Dr. JAEHAK OH
"The future of transport service responding to COVID19 pandemic is going to be upgraded towards more human-centred. Human-centred transport means more individual customized mobility service, especially for elderly, avoiding health risks, promoting reduction of carbon emissions, and improving transport safety level."
KOTI Held 'Debate for the Integration of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Into the Transportation System'

KOTI Signed MOU With LG Uplus Corp.
The KOTI (Jang Wonjae, director general of Department of Comprehensive Transport) signed MOU with LG Uplus Corp. (Ju Yeongjun, Director of Next Generation Technology Lab) at its meeting room on the 2nd floor on Monday, October 25th. Based on the synergy of LG Uplus Corp.'s 5G communication and dynamic map and KOTI's road and traffic data, the MOU is expected to contribute to the growth of the mobility industry and to develop autonomous mobility infrastructure technology by sharing experience and know-how related to pilot projects, cooperating for public data support for the expansion of
mobility services, and finding data-based mobility policies.
KOTI Held 'Seminar on the Development of Future Transportation Operation Technology Based on Artificial Intelligence'
The KOTI held a 'Seminar on the Development of Future Transportation Operation Technology Based on Artificial Intelligence' at COEX's Grand Ballroom (Gangnam-gu, Seoul) on Wednesday, October 27th. Hosted by the Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement and organized by the KOTI, the seminar was planned to share the core achievements of the R&D project since 2018, collect various opinions, and put the developed new transportation operation technology into practical use in the field. Starting with the opening remarks of Oh Jaehak, president of Korea Transport Institute, future-oriented transportation operation plans such as development directions and use cases of various transportation technologies were presented and the status of transportation platform development based on Living Lab was shared in the event, while representatives from relevant departments and experts participated as panelists and had time to discuss and listen to opinions for efficient transportation operation.

Urban Transport Policy Paradigm Shift: - Focus on Health and Road Safety -
While the invention of automobile transportation was innovative with regard to the possibility of door-to-door mobility instead of mobility through railroads, it also brought about negative impacts such as damage to life and property due to traffic accidents and health impacts due to air pollution.
Metropolitan transportation centered upon automobiles resulted in issues such as slower traffic flow, an increased rate in traffic accidents, and particulate matter discharged by automobiles.
Multiple countries have changed their urban transport system to be focused on people instead of cars [Woonerf, Netherlands (the 1970s), Sustainable Development (the 1990s), Smart Growth, Transit Oriented Development, Compact City (the 2000s)].
Korea has experienced remarkable economic growth since the 1990s, and citizens are interested in their quality of life, including safety and health. However, urban transportation policy focuses on the rapid movement of cars.
