Smart City Challenge

The smart city challenge project is a competitive competition that was introduced in 2016 based on the 'challenge project' in the United States. While limited to transportation in the United States, the Korean-type challenge project was introduced to solve urban problems in various fields such as transportation, energy, environment, and safety, and was centered on private companies, reflecting the needs of local governments and citizens. It is a project to present ideas and to demonstrate and spread new smart solutions.
