To realize the smart construction through Research
a digitalization of the construction industry, the department tries to develop and commercialize convergence technologies, focusing on a construction information, a spatial information, an autonomous driving, an extreme environment construction, and a construction automation. The achievements can be used in diverse ways such as a core technology development, policy and regulation establishment, technology application and commercialization, and a industry support. The department’s major research areas include ⓐ smart construction and spatial-information–based convergence technology, ⓑ advanced transportation technology such as cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS), ⓒ construction in extreme environments such as space, the Arctic/Antarctic, and contaminated areas, ⓓ smart roads and autonomous-driving system technology, and (e) land transport big data research. This multidisciplinary research is intended to take the lead in building the key agenda in future construction technology, contribute to creating a convergent research ecosystem for the institute, and improve the quality of citizens’ lives.
