This challenge is no more nor less than adapt its road network to the new vehicles that are coming to the market in these years. In a matter of a couple of decades, we tend electric cars everywhere, and probably with them a handful of autonomous vehicles willing to take on our roads.

One of the countries that is making progress in the matter is South Korea. In this country it is developing a plan face design and build motorways smart directed to electric vehicles and autonomous.

target that has marked the South Korean government is ambitious to the pair that important. By the year 2020 will build 1,000 km of roads adapted to the needs of autonomous vehicles and electric. For its design will take into account the number of charging stations that they can need as well as the rest areas located in the relevant place.
These highways smart will also be provided with a system named STI that will allow the autonomous vehicles travel by this type of ways of the form safe. It is developed to minimize the emissions pollutants of vehicles as well as the jams and withholding taxes that can be given. Its operation is based on the control traffic by means of cameras and panels lights to notify drivers of the conditions that will be encountered along the way.
