5) Blockchain technology and economy
1. Industry: Streamline collaboration through technology of trust
Blockchain, Protocol of Trust based on Transparency Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott, who have written books called ‘The Blockchain Revolution’, refer to blockchain as a protocol of trust. "This protocol instills trust among finite beings through clever rules. This was unprecedented. A credible deal has been reached between two or more parties. In addition, these deals, and individuals operating on a set of their own, the Commission the total points acquired. mass collaboration to ensure the integrity of the deal through."
As we mentioned earlier, the global financial crisis in September 2008 is behind Satoshi Nakamoto's proposal for "bitcoin," the root of blockchain technology. The collapse of an investment bank called Lehman Brothers in the United States has caused financial turmoil around the world. The failure of financial institutions to guarantee currency and…

[CUBE NEWS] The Korean National Assembly's Passage of the Autonomous Vehicle Act, Expected to Promote Related Businesses | 자율주행차법 국회 통과로 관련 사업 촉진 전망

The Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport(MOLIT) announced on April 5 that the National Assembly has passed a bill on the Promotion and Support of Commercialization of Self-driving Cars (Autonomous vehicle Commercialization Act), which includes the definition of autonomous vehicles, safety driving bases and regulatory exemptions, and support measures that have been broken down according to the technical level. The law will go into effect a year after the promulgation.

Until now, the Automobile Management Act provided only the basis for definitions and temporary driving permits, but the institutional framework was incomplete. The legislation provides a legal basis for promoting the commercialization of autonomous vehicles and supporting related industries.

If you look at the relevant laws in detail, we've first broken down the autonomous vehicle technology level. Depending on the driver's needs, it was divided into partial self-driving and complete self-driving, and a definition of self-driving system and related infrastructure was also established. By doing so, we have prepared the basis for the application of safety standards and related systems such as accident-related systems.

It also increased the predictability of private policy by establishing basic plans every five years on infrastructure deployment and the introduction of transportation logistics systems such as public transportation. The pilot zone will also be introduced to allow new services and business models using autonomous vehicles to connect to the business.

"We expect to strengthen support infrastructure for safer and more efficient autonomous driving, improve road facilities, and manage new self-driving services and businesses that will make life easier and safer for the people," a ministry official said.

Cube AI, an incubating company from Cube Intelligence Inc., is glad to hear the news. "The National Assembly's passage of the self-driving car law will give us its wings to develop technologies related to self-driving valet parking that are being prepared by Cube AI. We will work harder to develop technology so that self-driving valet parking can be commercialized as soon as possible" said a representative for Cube AI.

국토교통부는 지난 45일 기술 단계에 따라 세분화한 자율차 정의와 안전 운행 기반 및 규제 면제, 지원방안 등의 내용을 담은 '자율주행자동차 상용화 촉진 및 지원에 관한 법률(자율차상용화법)' 제정안이 국회 본회의를 통과했다고 발표했습니다. 이 법은 공포 후 1년이 경과한 날부터 시행될 예정인데요.

그동안 자율자동차 관련 법규는 '자동차관리법'에서 정의와 임시운행허가 근거만 규정했을 뿐 제도적 틀은 미비한 상태였는데요. 이번 법 제정으로 자율차 상용화를 촉진하고 관련 산업 지원을 위한 법적 기반이 마련된 것이죠.
관련 법 내용을 자세히 살펴보면, 우선 자율차 기술 단계를 세분화했는데요. 운전자 필요 여부에 따라 부분자율주행과 완전자율주행으로 구분했고, 자율주행시스템 및 관련 인프라 등에 대한 정의도 신설했습니다. 이를 통해 안전 기준과 사고 책임 등 관련 제도 적용 근거를 마련한 셈이죠.

또한 인프라 구축, 대중교통과 같은 교통물류체계 도입 등에 관한 기본계획을 5년마다 수립함으로써 민간 정책 예측 가능성을 높였습니다. 또한 시범운행지구도 도입해 자율차를 활용한 새로운 서비스와 비즈니스 모델이 사업으로 연결될 수 있도록 허용될 예정입니다.

국토부 관계자는 "보다 안전하고 효율적인 자율주행을 위한 지원 인프라 구축, 도로 시설 개선·관리가 강화될 것으로 기대한다" "국민 생활을 더욱 편리하고 안전하게 할 새로운 자율주행 서비스 및 비즈니스 도입이 가능해질 것"이라고 밝혔습니다.

관련 소식을 접한 큐브 인텔리전스의 인큐베이팅 회사 큐브 AI'에서도 반가움을 전했는데요. 큐브AI 관계자는 이번 자율주행차법 국회 통과는 큐브AI에서 준비 중인 자율주행 발렛파킹 관련 기술 개발에 날개를 단 셈이다. 자율주행 발렛파킹이 하루빨리 상용화 될 수 있도록 기술 개발에 더욱 힘쓰겠다고 전했습니다.
