– Expansion of institutions applying for the regulatory deferral system… From this year, it is possible to apply through the Korean Chamber of Commerce –

 

□ The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport is a smart city regulation deferral system (hereinafter referred to as regulatory sandbox)* as a smart service to solve urban problems in Seoul, Sejong, Pohang, and Jeju, after deliberation by the National Smart City Committee. approved through.
* A system that gives special cases for new products and services using new technologies to allow market launch, test and verification by delaying the current regulations under certain conditions (period, place, scale)

ㅇ With the approval of 4 new projects for special cases this time, 20 cases of smart city technology and service-related regulatory difficulties have been resolved since the introduction of the 36 system in February.

□ The four projects that will be launched in the first half of '22 are as follows after reviewing liability insurance and the appropriateness of the demonstration project cost.

ㅇ Gwanak-gu, Seoul will demonstrate the 'Autonomous Driving Safety Patrol Service' (Gwanak-gu Office Consortium) to improve the safety of residents.

– A patrol robot equipped with an autonomous driving function patrols the area, collects video and audio information, transmits it to the control center to analyze the situation, and provides a quick response service in case of an emergency, making it possible to patrol areas vulnerable to crime 24 hours a day. It is expected that the foundation for a more secure life will be laid.

ㅇ 'Traffic flow control service using artificial intelligence technology' (NeuroDigm) will be demonstrated in Jeju City. The artificial intelligence camera installed at the intersection identifies the number of vehicles in each lane and automatically generates the optimal traffic signal cycle, improving the existing fixed traffic light system, where the signal changes at a set time period regardless of traffic volume.
– This is expected to improve traffic flow in real time and increase the utilization of existing roads.

ㅇ Sejong City will demonstrate a 'traffic signal control system applying optical communication technology' (ITS). Instead of installing a separate communication network for traffic signal control, we plan to check the effect of the system to reduce construction cost and increase communication speed by utilizing the existing optical communication network.

ㅇ In Pohang, demand-response mobility* (fortXNUMXdot), which allows taxi sharing and sets routes in real time according to movement demand, will be demonstrated.
– If this is reflected in public transportation policy, it is expected that citizens will be able to reduce waiting time for public transportation and increase convenience.
* Mobility that changes routes in real time according to passenger demand

□ In order to apply the smart city regulatory sandbox more quickly and to improve the convenience of companies, the system operation method is also partially improved.

ㅇ Currently, only through the Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement (KAIA), regulatory confirmation and special application are possible, but from this year on, the smart city regulatory sandbox will also be available through the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
* Conduct a pilot operation of the designation of the Korea Chamber of Commerce in the first quarter of '22 and promote it in earnest from the second half of '1 through the revision of the Smart City Act enforcement ordinance, etc.
– The company-friendly Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been added as an application institution, so it is expected that companies will be able to more conveniently take advantage of regulatory exceptions.
* Smart city regulatory sandbox system guidance, online consultation and application support (Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement (KAIA): http://smartcity.kaia.re.kr/sandbox, Korean Consultation: http://sandbox.korcham. net)

ㅇ For simple regulatory exceptions or previously reviewed regulatory special cases, the expedited agenda processing system (fast track) is used to reduce the processing period, which previously took more than 100 days on average, to less than 60 days.

ㅇ In addition, lawyers and patent attorneys with expertise in various technical fields, such as transportation, logistics, energy, and medical care, will be used as support personnel to support applicants suffering from a lack of expertise in law and patents.

□ Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport Urban Policy Officer Bok-Hwan Kim said, “We will continue to make efforts to ensure that companies that want to experiment with new innovative services can benefit from practical regulations more quickly and conveniently.”

 

<Approval of the 5th Smart City Regulatory Sandbox>

ㅇ Demonstration of self-driving safety patrol service(Gwanak-gu Office Consortium) (Demonstration area: Gwanak-gu, Seoul)
A patrol robot with an autonomous driving function travels through the patrol area, collects video and audio information through the on-board camera and microphone, and transmits it to the Gwanak-gu control center to analyze the situation and demonstrate a quick response service in case of an emergency

ㅇ Demonstration of traffic flow control service using artificial intelligence technology(Neurodigm) (Experiment area: Jeju City)
Demonstration of a system in which an artificial intelligence camera installed at an intersection identifies the number of vehicles in each lane and automatically creates an optimal traffic signal cycle to improve traffic flow in real time

ㅇ Demonstration of traffic signal control system applying optical communication technology(ITS) (Tested area: Sejong City)
Demonstration of functions such as signal operation and disaster broadcasting guidance by installing a signal controller at an intersection through an optical communication-applied traffic signal control system

ㅇ Pohang City Demand Response Mobility Service Demonstration(Fort To Dot) (Tested area: Pohang City)
Demonstration of service that operates by changing the optimal route according to real-time demand without a fixed route and timetable through the demand-responsive shared taxi mobility service
