[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, September 16 2007] Korea to make mandatory setting up of 'ubiquitous city'

The government said Sunday (Sept. 16) it will soon submit legislation to make it mandatory starting next year for the central and provincial governments to create a "ubiquitous city" with state-of-the-art communication networks if they are building a city 3.3 million square meters or bigger.

A "ubiquitous city" refers to a city in which people can log onto the Internet anywhere and where there are intelligent sensors on infrastructures that allow city dwellers to receive information about many things, including transportation.
