This study focuses on the impact of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) on the transport sector. Advancement of ICT has transformed the individual daily lives, consequently bringing changes to the important basic elements of transport such as activity pattern and travel behavior (behavior in use of time and space.) In terms of transport planning, the ICT affects the existing transport infrastructure planning elements (travel generation, travel distribution, and transportation modes.) This implies that changes are required in the operation or investment policies of transport infrastructure. Therefore, we need to understand how the ICT development affects the transport infrastructure planning elements in a more accurate and quantitative manner. Based on this understanding, we need to proactively respond to the rapid and widespread social changes brought by the ICT evolution.
Purpose of this study is to perform a quantitative analysis on how the individual travel behavior transformed by the advancement of smart knowledge society affects the transport planning elements in the transport infrastructure policy. In this study, we first focused on identifying the key factors that drive changes, among the characteristics of smart knowledge society. To this end, we described the current usage of smart devices in Korea and how smart device usage will affect transport areas, through a review of the existing studies.
