Top Korean firms hold roadshow

The Korea-Qatar ITS Roadshow 2011 was held yesterday to promote co-operation between Korean Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) companies and Qatari government institutions….
The delegate from Korea’s Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs showcased a number of technologies developed in Korea, including a system that can measure the speed of a vehicle, compare it to the amount of time before a traffic light changes, and warn the driver before a possible traffic signal violation.
The Korean government has spent billions on research and development in ITS technology, and expect to have fully deployed smart highway technology nationwide by 2020.
