The core of Industry 4.0 probably is the creation of a smart city that improves the quality of life of the people. Smart city is a business that applies advanced IT to areas such as urban transportation, environment, safety, housing, and welfare services. IT service company U Like is taking the lead in creating a smart city by developing a smart parking service app Smart Parking Seongnam, one of the smart city transportation services in 2019. Smart Parking Seongnam is one of the Syncronicity project made by the cooperation of KETI, SeongNam Industry Promotion agency, and U Like. It was created as a part of IoT-based Smart City International Joint Technology Development Project to strengthen the competitiveness of IoT and smart city industry in Seongnam-si.
This service is an application based on the
oneM2M technology adopted as an international standard technology for IoT, and
can be used for free because it is for non-profit purposes. It provides
real-time information on parking lot information in Seongnam-si and nearby
transit traffic through notification and APP screen. This app is intended for
all users who need information about Seongnam-si parking lots, city buses and
intercity buses near the parking lot, and transfer information to other
transportations like subways. It provides customized parking information
service for not only parking lot users residing in Seongnam-si, but also
parking lot users commuting to/from companies or business sites located in
Seongnam-si and all parking lot users visiting Seongnam-si.
The company staff said, "We plan to update
the parking lot recommendation feature incorporating AI machine learning
technology that utilizes parking lot usage patterns, date, and weather
information. Also, through continuous R&D investment, we are developing a
business model with a paid parking lot for transfer." "In addition to this, we
are in the installation/development stage by suggesting a school zone safety
service in Seongnam-si. The School Zone Safety Service is a service that is
expected to help in taking various measures to prevent accidents in advance by
collecting and analyzing traffic information data (speeding, driving frequency)
in the child protection zone."
