[Policy]Hanyang University Collaborates with LH on "Smart Asset Management Pilot Project"

Hanyang University confirmed participation in the "Smart Asset Management Pilot Project" that utilizes autonomous performance diagnosis system. This project will be carried out by LH (Korea Land & Housing Corporation). The "Smart Asset Management Pilot Project" is designed as an innovative plan to protect the residents while reducing maintenance costs from the accumulation of management supplies and the aging of rental assets. On 28 September, LH signed an agreement with Hanyang University, the Drone Convergence Technology Association, and the Housing Management Corporation while establishing a foundation to promote smart asset management business by utilizing autonomous performance diagnosis systems from private and academic circles. The autonomous performance diagnosis system will be carried out by filming the complex with an autonomous flying drone and calculating the repair volume through AI-based data analysis. Quick and precise inspection, without blind spots, is possible. Under the agreement, each agency will cooperate with each other to carry out 6 collaborative tasks in 3 areas using the autonomous performance diagnosis systems by utilizing big data which was proposed by LH: strengthening safety inspections, streamlining maintenance. This is expected to contribute greatly to innovation in maintenance and management when it becomes possible to analyze big data time series such as building timing, user materials, and construction methods by continuously computerizing inspection data and establishing a database. By the end of this year, the pilot project will be implemented at 4 rental complexes: Seoul Bundong 3, Incheon Yeonsu 1, Ansan Gojan 1, and Busan Deokcheon 2. Plans on expanding will be confirmed at a later date after going through performance checks. Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Hee-jin

'Haeng-Ga-Rae' is the blockchain-based platform that was developed by the idea from 2019 SK C&C members. The application aims to spread the SV(Social Value) among the society, adding the meaning of 'Creating tomorrow that adds happiness' on its name. The SK C&C members have downloaded the Haeng-Ga-Rae application and accumulate the SV Points, through carrying out activities such as using the tumbler, using the stairs, walking, blood donations, and volunteer work, both sided printing, and finishing all food in the company cafeteria. The accumulated points are used for donations or buying products related to social enterprises. As the contract is made, Hanyang University students and faculty can download the 'Hanyang University Haeng-Ga-Rae' application on Google Playstore and Apple App Store starting from October 8th. Various Hanyang University SV Points will be automatically accumulated when activities such as walking on the campus building stairs, using tumblers, finishing all food in the university cafeteria, and more. Individual SV Points can be used in university cafes, bookstore, and buying souvenirs within the university. The university is also planning to allow students to purchase products of social enterprises and make donations using the SV Point through the 'Hanyang University Haeng-Ge-Rae' application. Kim Myeong-gik Hanyang University Vice-President of faculty education mentioned that "the university is currently having difficulty in letting students know of the social values that are in need and provide chances for students to create these social values, largely due to the untact environment," and added "'Haeng-Ga-Rae' is a way for students to create social values without the limitations of time and location, allowing students to directly see the social values that they are creating. This will hold great meaning in using the application within the university." Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

It creates various facilities to accommodate companies and support startups. It also develops universities as bases for innovation and growth by concentrating government cooperation between industry, academia and research and corporate capacity-building projects. Previously, in August 2019, Hanyang University ERICA was selected through a competition by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and the Ministry of Small and Medium Venture Business. LH, which is an expert in industrial complex development, participated as the general manager of the project and signed agreements with Gangwon National University and Hannam University. They signed agreements with Hanyang University and Ansan City this year. The agreement was signed to further clarify the role of each institution before the project was carried out in earnest, and according to the agreement, the three organizations agreed to ▲cooperate in securing the site for the project, ▲establish a business plan for raising project costs, and ▲ attract tenant companies. The Hanyang University ERICA Campus Innovation Park will be built with a total area of 78,000㎡. Before building an Innovation park, LH plans to build an industry-academic innovation hub building with a floor area of 22,300㎡ to provide workspace for start-ups and growing companies at low rents. Hence, LH will be in charge of building the complex, including licensing, by pre-investing about 50 billion won, including government financial support, while Ansan City will be in charge of licensing and project support. Hanyang University will be in charge of subsidies. Negotiations are currently being done to approve the industrial complex plan, and construction is expected to begin at the end of this year. Companies will be able to start to move in by the end of 2022.

[Policy]Changed Parking System Applied for the Fall Semester

The parking system of the Seoul Campus will go through a partial change starting from the fall semester. Some regulations that have been temporarily allowed until the end of the 2020 year will be newly applied again starting from January of 2021. Accordingly, 'Untacting,' a term coined in South Korea to describe a contactless world, will be reinforced as a service during the process of parking management. Untacting service will be provided through a PC or mobile application, without having to visit the parking office. Even for the cases where parking tickets for events are needed, registration should be done online. The parking price for faculty will also be raised from 1,000 won to 2,000 won starting from the fall semester. For the discount price, 10 hours, 12 hours, and the one day pass will all be removed. Only 2, 3, 6, 8 hour passes will be used. Meanwhile, providing discounts by showing personal ID will also be stopped starting from January of 2020. This is due to the increase in automatic payments, where registered vehicles must register through a seasonal ticket or go through the discount process. While registered vehicles can receive a discount service if the seasonal ticket is not registered, the regular price will be applied to vehicles that are not registered. A paper parking ticket will only be used temporarily until the end of this year. Visiting vehicles will receive a discount through the 'smart parking ticket' that will be given from the visiting department. Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young
