An intelligent transport system (ITS) is a smart traffic control tower that can monitor roads in real-time and control traffic lights to effectively increase the flow rate of cars and ease traffic jams. The smart transport system can also interlink with special-purpose vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks to control traffic lights so that emergency vehicles can reach their destinations without stopping.
Currently, Jeju operates a traffic light priority service for emergency vehicles over 14 kilometers (8.6 miles) of roads in Jeju City's downtown area. When closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras detect the number plate of 13 pre-registered emergency vehicles, Jeju's smart road system will manage the traffic lights to minimize the travel distance and time of the special-purpose vehicle.
Jeju Municipal Police said that the autonomous police agency will install smart traffic light systems in 100 intersections in Jeju City. The system will use smart CCTV cameras to monitor the size of traffic and collect other information to calculate the ideal traffic light intervals. The smart traffic system will support all roads on the island.
Smart crosswalks will be set up in school zones and elderly protection zones. The smart pedestrian protection system uses AI to detect dangerous situations and take appropriate action such as sending out warnings through loudspeakers or deploying policemen and emergency workers in cases of accidents.
