    Blockchain and IoT to Take Care of Seoul’s Decaying Private Buildings http://english.seoul.go.kr/blockchain-and-iot-to-take-care-of-seouls-decaying-private-buildings/?cat=46 SMG will build a “Blockchain-based Safety Checkup Platform for Risky Structures” and manage building’s safety based on digital data Using the IoT sensors attached to buildings, the city will monitor and send warning signals when risks are detected Starting with 46 buildings for test operation in December, the system will be applied to 824 old buildings in Seoul from 2022 SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, June 8, 2021 –For the first time in Korea, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) applies blockchain and IoT to the safety management of old private buildings. With cutting-edge technologies, the system will automatically detect and prevent risk factors of buildings. The SMG will introduce a “Blockchain-based Safety Checkup Platform for Risky Structures” in December to take care of 824 buildings that are more than 30 years old or designated as facilities prone to disasters. So far, officials have had to visit the buildings for on-site inspections. Seoul, however, aims to switch current safety inspections from in-person to digital. For example, IoT sensors attached to the wall measures the slope and cracks of a building. Then, blockchain networks save and analyze the data to prove the accuracy of such information and abnormal changes to the structure. Once risks are detected, safety alert text messages are sent to the district office and the building owner so that they can take preventive measures. The SMG, the autonomous district office, and the owners can monitor the current status and other data 24/7 via computers and smartphones. This is the very first case of converging blockchain technologies with IoT. Blockchain technologies, in particular, guarantee transparent history management, nipping forgery and falsification in the bud. The accuracy and security will be enhanced further as well. Seoul expects to identify dangerous situations, take preemptive measures, and secure data more effectively once it kickstarts the platform. In addition, objective data is expected to allow the city government to determine the cause of various safety accidents. Such data can also be used to settle conflicts related to safety incidents and establish better safety management measures. Buildings subjective to the platform are hazardous buildings designated and managed by the municipality, dilapidated buildings built more than three decades ago, and slopes near housing, such as breast walls and artificial faces of slopes. *As of May 2021, there are 120 hazardous buildings, 598 small dilapidated buildings, and 106 slopes near housing. From this September, the SMG intends to attach IoT sensors to approximately 46 old private buildings in 25 districts as a pilot project in December. The city has a plan to expand the project to 824 decaying buildings across the capital from 2022. Kim Seong-Bo, Deputy Mayor of Housing & Architecture Headquarters of Seoul, said, “By applying leading technologies in managing the safety of uildings, the SMG will shape a reliable architectural administration for our citizens. As a result, we will improve the predictability of safety management for private buildings, and thus prevent numerous kinds of safety accidents.” <Real time Status of IoT Censors in Seoul> <Status of Safety Management for Risky Structures>

  • 공유도시(Sharing City) 서울은?

시간, 공간, 재능, 물건, 정보 등 누구나 소유하고 있는 것을 함께 나누어 활용함으로써 쓰지 않고 놀리는 자원을 효율적으로 활용하고, 지역경제를 활성화하며, 이웃과 공동체 의식도 형성하고, 환경에도 이로운 활동인 '공유'가 활성화된 도시입니다.

'공유도시 서울' 정책을 추진하게 된 이유는?

복지, 환경, 일자리 등에서 사회적 수요는 급증하고 있으나 한정된 예산과 자원으로 이를 해결하는데 많은 어려움이 있습니다. 또한 급격한 도시화로 공동체 의식이 실종되었고, 과잉소비에 따른 자원고갈과 환경오염 문제가 지속적으로 발생하고 있습니다.
이러한 해결이 어려운 도시의 경제적, 사회적, 환경적 문제들을 '공유'라는 새로운 방법을 통해 완화시켜 나가고자 합니다.
