Greetings

I would like to express my gratitude to the members of the Korean ITS Society who visited the homepage and to those who have been interested in it.

I am Seonha Lee who became the 16th President of the Korea Institute of Intelligent Transport Systems. I am also a professor at Kongju University.

The Institute was founded in 2002 as a result of the cooperation between industry, academia and research institutes in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) that was introduced to improve the performance of transportation systems by combining information technology (IT) and transportation engineering.

Currently, 2,579 people and 90 organizations are registered in our society. We have contributed greatly to the Korean ITS industry through policy development and research and development with the Ministry of Land, Transport, Science and Technology, Ministry of Information and Communication, the National Police Agency and local governments.

We are also contributing to the overseas advancement of domestic technology based on road traffic management system, traffic information system, toll collection system and local government ITS deployments.

In recent years, ITS has been able to realize AV-based futuristic traffic system as the V2V and V2X-based co-operative ITS using the local area network becomes full-scale. Our society will make a lot of effort mainly by the members of the Society to ensure that core technologies such as ICT, Big Data, Drone, which are rapidly developing, are implemented as a convenient future-oriented transportation system for the public.

If you have any questions or suggestions related to the society, I will reply to you sincerely from the secretariat including myself.
