The headquarters of Samwoo Immertion, Jung-gu, Busan on the 26th. 65 developers gathered and were immersed in realizing real spaces such as ships and traditional markets virtually. It is the task of discovering and solving problems in the field in real time through digital twin technology. Samwoo Immersion, which started with marine geographic information system technology in 2011, is expanding its business to metaverse and digital twin areas through virtual space technology.

An example is the Busan Jagalchi Market Integrated Safety Monitoring System project. This project, which will be demonstrated next month, is a model for integrated management by moving all infrastructure related to the Jagalchi market, including piping and pumps, to a virtual space.

The purpose of artificial intelligence is to manage water and air quality by analyzing nearby seawater information, air, and customer density, and to express the optimal evacuation route with light according to the density in case of a fire. In addition, Busan Port was implemented as a digital twin to track the movement of containers, vehicles, and people, and an artificial intelligence system was also prepared to predict ship collisions.

Busan's digital transformation business is accelerating. The support project that started at the ‘Busan VR AR (Virtual/Augmented Reality) Production Base Center’ that started in 2018 led to the ‘Korea-ASEAN ICT (Information and Communication Technology) Convergence Village’ project in 2020. It has expanded from virtual reality technology to metaverse and digital twin businesses.

Busan City and the Busan Information Industry Promotion Agency have invested 6.6 billion won from 2018 to this year in the ‘Busan VR/AR Production Base Center’ project to train production personnel and support content development. The ‘Korea-ASEAN ICT Convergence Village’ project will help companies advance into ASEAN countries by providing KRW 30.3 billion from 2020 to 2024 with a focus on XR (extended reality) technology. Busan Information Industry Promotion Agency has established a network with government-funded organizations and business-oriented associations in eight countries including △Thailand, △Philippines, △Malaysia, △Indonesia, △Brunei, △Cambodia, △Laos, and Myanmar.
