Autonomous driving·Robot courier to my life...4Milestones to the Second Industrial Revolution

2021.05.25. / Korea's policy weekly <Empathy>
 Smart City National pilot smart city is a future city model that integrates the 4th industrial revolution technology from the first construction and fully implements it as a smart city. In January 2018, the government designated the Sejong 5-1 Living Zone and Busan Eco Delta City as national pilot smart cities. 
Sejong National pilot smart city  Restrictions on entry of private vehicles… Mobility Innovation Experiment 
 The first town we will meet before the first move-in, which is expected at the end of 2023, is a miniature version of the National Pilot Smart City, which will contain a Creative Innovation Center, a PR center, and a complex community. Focusing on the 7 innovation elements of Sejong National Pilot Smart City, such as means of transportation (mobility), healthcare, education, and energy, you can directly experience smart innovation services such as autonomous driving, robot delivery, and artificial intelligence (AI)-based housing service and experience various technologies It is an innovation space that can demonstrate
 The use of private vehicles is restricted in an area of ​​about 60 m16 (17 to 1 pyeong) of the National Pilot Smart City in order to overcome the harmful effects of the vehicle-oriented city structure and restore pedestrian-oriented city values. Instead, a shared car-based zone will be introduced to operate personal mobility devices (PM/electric-powered single-person transportation) and self-driving shuttles. Two express bus stops outside the area will be installed to connect them. The shared car-based zone is a representative example of a smart city that minimizes inconvenience to citizens with future technology. 

Busan National pilot smart city  December First move-in
 The 'Busan Eco Delta Smart Village', the first occupancy complex of the National Pilot Smart City to move in in December of 2021, has even selected tenants at the end of 2020. Smart Village is a living lab (laboratory researching in a space where citizens actually live)-type demonstration complex, designed to supplement technology and spread the proven technology throughout the National Pilot Smart City after directly experiencing the service. Tenants have no deposit and no rent for the 5 years of the Living Lab operation period, and only have to pay the monthly management fee. Instead, they plan to verify various technologies to be applied to smart cities, such as participation in living lab operation training, feedback on verification services, and provision of personal information.

December 2021.05.06, XNUMX / MOLIT
 From August, smart cities with innovative, institutional environment, service technology and infrastructure will receive 'smart city certification' from the government. It is expected that the level of domestic smart cities will be further improved by certifying excellent smart cities. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport announced that it will start the '2021 Smart City Certification Competition' to certify Korea's representative “smart city” at the government level. The smart city certification system is a system that identifies the level of domestic smart cities through smart city performance indicators and grants 'certification' and 'grade' to compare between cities.

❷(Governance and institutional environment) Areas where various stakeholders are making horizontal problem-solving and policy-making through active participation (applying governance elements to smart city promotion system, institutional base, and network configuration)
❸(Service technology and infrastructure) Smart city infrastructure elements (intelligent facilities and services, information and communication networks, urban integrated operation center, etc.), where service technology is applied appropriately to the conditions of each local government
 Smart city certification is planned to be given to local governments whose innovation is high according to smart city indicators, well equipped with governance and institutional environment, and smart service technologies are well applied to local conditions. Smart city certification targets are evaluated by categorizing the types into large cities with a population of 50 or more and small and medium-sized cities with a population of 50 or less, taking into account the size of the local government. At the end of June (6.28~30), a proposal from the local government is received and evaluated, and a city for certification is scheduled to be selected among August. Each local government is evaluated as a 5th grade, and certification is given up to grades 1 to 3, and the grades of the certified local governments are disclosed, and the MOLIT minister's citation and award of copper plates give an opportunity to promote it as an excellent smart city at home and abroad.
