The amount of the development of transportation network has been increased
in the Thai urban areas with the recent remarkable economic development.
The transportation network radiates from Bangkok where population is concentrated
into each area with maintained road, airline and railroad. In Bangkok city,
modern high buildings stand a row and it is very beautiful row of houses
along a city street. However, the local traffic maintenance is not perfect
at all partly, and it is the present conditions that cause a serious traffic
jam and chronic atmosphere pollution to neighboring areas.
In addition, there is the problem that a traffic accident occurs frequently
without can take prior measures from the lack of traffic accident data
enough. Basic traffic rules and the knowledge about the road sign of the
citizen are also in question.
While rapid road traffic reformation is performed in order to improve such
situation, Prof. Tawachai studies current basis of traffic thoroughly and
works on various action for improvement. Recently, he is involved in the
Thai policy for traffic management and introduction of advanced road traffic
system that applies cutting-edge technology of transport planning.
On 8th and 9th July, we will visit the Thai highway Traffic Bureau, the
Thailand Transport Policy Bureau and carry out a seminar of UC-win/Road
under Prof. Tawatcha's cooperation. In the seminar, we're going to introduce
not only the product summary but also international introduction examples
of UC-win/Road to people concerned in detail. In Bangkok, government-related
businesses generate most of jobs, therefore the introdution possibility
of UC-win/Road is expected.
Before the end of the year, Kobayashi of our Osaka office will go over
to Thailand and perticipates a project as an advaiser of use of UC-win/Road
in Transport Reserch and Development Laboratory in King Mongkut's Institute
of Thechnology Thonburi under the leadership of Prof. Tawatcha, and it
is also planed to expand the Thai market of UC-win/Road. Please expect
the significant deployment of UC-win/Road in Thailand and other Asian area.
