2. Smart hub-based energy sharing. Transaction service: Demonstration exception
 'Smart community town and smart hub-based energy sharing and transaction service' to solve the problem of insufficiency of new and renewable energy in Jeju Island and to promote shared mobility centered on electric vehicles
3. Demonstration of smart water purifying technology for 3 minutes applying a fiber filter: no regulation
 Demonstration of technology to produce edible water in about 3 minutes by injecting coagulant into raw water such as river water and treating it with a fiber filter after instant coagulation
4. AI Traffic Light Using Image Recognition: Demonstration Special Case
Demonstration of an AI traffic light system that generates signals suitable for traffic volume by detecting vehicles at intersections and pedestrians in crosswalks in real time based on image recognition
5. Drone-based flood prediction and situation propagation system: special case of demonstration
Demonstration of a service that predicts and informs flooding before disaster situations such as heavy rain or floods occur by building a 3D numerical surface model with data taken by flying a drone and fusion of meteorological satellite and radar data
6-7. Demand Response Mobility Service: Demonstration Special Case
Demonstrated in each region (Sejong City, 6. Daegu) to determine the optimal route in real time according to user demand and to expand and apply demand-responsive mobility services that operate flexibly
Smart City Special
Can you identify the movement of corona patients in 10 minutes? 

2021. December 07.22, XNUMX / MOLIT

 How do you know the movement lines of the confirmed cases on your smartphone? In the past, in order to check the movement, the process was carried out by asking the person directly, checking it again through the relevant agency, and tracking the movement using CCTV.
 Accordingly, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport and the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developed a “corona 19 epidemiological investigation support system” using a smart city data hub. A smart city data hub refers to a technology that connects distributed information such as location and credit card usage history to a mobile phone based on 5G. As part of the Korean version of the New Deal smart city policy, this technology was developed to solve urban problems and make life more convenient for citizens. Based on this technology, the “COVID-19 Epidemiological Investigation Support System” collects big data to check the movement of confirmed patients in 10 minutes and quickly share information.
