General Description of the Research Project

Leap-frog growth based on smart transport strategy
Thailand aims to become a value generating economy in 20 years with the Thailand 4.0 National Strategy. However, traffic congestion in the mega-city Bangkok deprives its citizens of significant time, and increases global warming, environment, and health risks. A growth strategy based on smart transport strategy supported by cyber-technology will be designed to realize a better quality of life for citizens and low-carbon, low-environmental load society, and implemented in the main street of Bangkok under the Sukhumvit Model.

Contribute to Thailand 4.0 and SDGs with Sukhumvit Model
The Sukhumvit Model is an urban experiment aiming to achieve “Economy for the people”(Thailand 4.0) with “No one left behind” (SDGs). It shifts the focus of transport policy from infrastructure development (road or railway) to the needs of diverse citizens, young or old, male or female, rich or poor, etc. For a better lifestyle, AI will be used to develop a system enabling seamless selection and combinations of time, mode and route of transport such as walking, personal mobility and railway.
