Standard and Architecture

ITS Architecture


National ITS architecture is the blueprint providing the overall frame at the national level by defining the functionality of the system and the flow of information along with configuring the main body to ensure interoperability and compatibility

Necessity of ITS Architecture

In cases where stakeholders are deploying ITS systems without connection, overall ITS installation and operation at a national level are inefficient and lacking in operability. Therefore, national ITS Architecture should be established to provide the whole framework for consistent and organized ITS implementation

Roles of National ITS Architecture

ITS Standards

Background and Objectives of Establishing Standards(Technical Regulations)

Organizations Related to ITS Standardization

National Transport Efficiency Act – Stating Mandatory Compliance with Standards (Technical Regulations)
Category Existing Contents Revised Contents
Mandatory Compliance with Standards The technical regulations should be observed ∙ Revised as not only stating mandatory compliance but also requiring the submission of the certificate of standard observance to complete the ITS project
Verification on Compliance with Standards The conformance test should be executed according to "ITS Work Manual" ∙ While performing the project, it is required to check if the standards are complied with. Confirmation of their compliance may be requested to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport
Dedicated Agency for Standardization The agency shall survey trends for standards and develop/disseminate standards ∙ Different standardization agencies may be designated for land/sea/air transportation for ITS development in respective fields
∙ The agencies shall perform additional functions: confirmation/verification of compliance with standards, distribution, support for the use of standards
Certification System Category Common Features Time Execution body Scope
Verification of compliance with standards Confirmation of all matters subject to ITS standards Before inspection of Completion (mandatory) Project executor All verification

Achievement of ITS

Strengthening Traffic Competitiveness and Reducing Social Costs
  • $11.8 billion worth of social benefits per year
    (congestion, accident, logistical cost)

    ·Effect on Hipass

    Tollgate passing time : 14 sec. => 2 sec. reduced(Improvement of 85.7%).
    Social Benefit : USD 9.6 M/year

  • High benefit-cost ratio

    Seoul 2.27, Daejeon 5.2, Ulsan 4.64, Suwon 2.39, Jeonju 2.9, Jeju 6.2

  • Growth of private traffic information

    Provide national ITS data to the private sector for free.
    so help ITS services of the private sector to be enhanced and be diversified

  • Reducing greenhouse gas & oil consumption

    Reducing greenhouse gas & oil consumption
    based on decrement of traffic congestion and idling
