South Korea's Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is to establish a citywide network of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to collect data on traffic by 2023.
SMG is to provide the data to start-ups and research institutions and develop services that will improve the city.
Seoul City Hall and 24 district offices will also be able to transmit data through the network.
SMG says the network will allow collected data to be swiftly transmitted and expedite the roll-out of related services.
IoT services, which have been provided through telecommunication networks, will be made freely available to the public.
As part of the initiative, an operating platform for the IoT network will be available at Seoul City Hall by the end of the year.
SMG is to pilot IoT services relating to safety in the districts of Eunpyeong-gu, Guro-gu, and Seocho-gu this year.
