In September this year the Korean government launched the country’s Mobility Innovation Roadmap and set out its plan to establish itself as a global leader in the mobility and innovative services sector. To facilitate the early operation of the high-tech future mobility network the country aims to overhaul the public transportation system by 2024, introduce self-driving taxis and buses by 2025, make level 4 passenger cars available by 2027 and ensure half of all cars made locally will be autonomous by 2035.
