I am a professor Sangsoo Lee of Ajou University, who will serve as the 20th President of the Korea Institute of ITS in 2022.
The Korea Institute of ITS was founded in 2002 to encourage ITS-related academics and research and to promote information sharing and friendship among members, contributing greatly to the development of the ITS field at domestic and abroad. In 2019, our society established the foundation for a second leap by owning the society’s secretariat and meeting space, and as of 2021, it has established itself as a mid-level society with more than 3,500 individual members and 100 institutional members.
In addition to ITS and C-ITS, our society is accepting various fields such as connected cars, autonomous vehicles, drones, CV2X communication, big data, AI, and MaaS, which have recently received high social interest. Therefore, it is contributing greatly to resolving ITS-related issues and supporting policies while maintaining close cooperation with related ministries and organizations such as the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the Ministry of Science and Technology and Communication, and the National Police Agency as well as university, company, and research institute.
This year, our society celebrates its 20th anniversary, and to commemorate it, we are planning various events such as publishing a 20th anniversary booklet and holding international seminars. The development and growth of our society over the past 20 years is possible because of the efforts of the honorary president and executives of the society as well as the interest and support of the valuable members. In the future, I, the executives, and the secretariat will do our best so that our society can lead domestic and abroad ITS and play a major role in building the future mobility environment. Since we are always listening to the opinions of our members with an open mind, we ask for your interest and encouragement this year as well.
I wish everyone who visited the website to be healthy and fulfill all your wishes
Sang-Soo Lee, President of the Korea Institute of ITS
