The Seoul Metropolitan Government’s smart city project is promoting more than 40 projects in 10 departments. Seoul City’s smart city projects were divided into six areas: big data, new industrial hubs and jobs, transportation, environment, regeneration, and pilot projects, and major projects were selected. In the field of big data, which is the core of smart city, the public data is completely opened and private data and real-time data linkage/utilization business. In the field of new industrial bases and jobs, the Yangjae new industrial base business was selected, specializing in the AI ​​and big data industries, which are the core of smart cities. The transportation sector selected Sangam autonomous driving test bed project and the environment sector also selected Magok energy self-reliance smart energy city development project. In the field of regeneration, the G Valley New Industrial Base Project was selected to develop the existing traditional industrial complex into a new ICT-oriented hub, and Magok was selected for the pilot project. These six major projects can be divided into physical space unit convergence projects, data utilization projects, and new technology introduction test bed projects.
It is important to have a master plan and implementation organization that can be created in the long term, and financial investment and institutional improvement should be supported. The data utilization business should focus on actual policy utilization in the future and develop a data utilization platform. In the transportation and energy sector, single projects that are being promoted require deregulation and R&D linkages to introduce new technologies, and financial management to build related infrastructure and performance management to spread.
In order to promote the smart city project in Seoul, it is necessary to reorganize the infrastructure in terms of planning and realization. First of all, from the planning aspect, it is necessary to establish a master plan for each business unit and prepare a system from preparing a “Seoul City Smart City Master Plan” that encompasses individual projects. In addition, the contents of the “Smart City and Informatization Basic Plan” to be established in the future should be included in the “2040 Seoul Plan” to serve as an indicator for Seoul to establish itself as an important policy sector. It is also necessary to prepare a plan for performance management and continuous implementation considering the characteristics of each type. In terms of realization, a new framework should be established. It needs to be reorganized into an organization that can comprehensively respond to technological innovation, improve the legal system for utilizing innovative technologies, and make financial investments by the government and the Seoul Metropolitan Government. The establishment of a regional action organization should also be accompanied.
