From here to the year 2020 is will have that build 1,000 kilometers of roads adapted to the needs of them vehicles autonomous and electric. For your design will take into account the number of charging stations that may need as well as rest areas located in the place that corresponds.
These intelligent highways will also have a System known as STI that will allow the autonomous vehicles pass through this way way type safe. Is is developing to minimize them emission pollutants of them vehicles as well as them jams and retention that is can give. Its operation is based on control of traffic through cameras and luminous panels to warn motorists of conditions that will be found along the way.
To carry to out this project the budget initial marked by the Government of Korea of the South amounts to a total of 29,600 million of euros and in addition, will attempt to capture others 28,000 million of euros of investors private.
