Focus on Future Automotive Technology
Hyundai Mobis will become a leader in new future car
technology through strategic selection and focus.
With a focus on autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification, we are
concentrating our enterprise-wide capabilities on the development of future car
technologies. In autonomous driving, our development is focused on sensors and
control solutions, and we are planning to secure level 3 autonomous driving core
component technology by 2020, and expand into level 4 technology in the future.
At CES 2019, we unveiled the futuristic urban autonomous driving concept M.VI
SION, and introduced a level 4 or higher future car technology before all others. In
connectivity, we will secure core technologies, such as integrated infotainment
controllers, voice recognition and security, and develop V2X, 5G communication
technology and next-generation displays by 2021. In electrification, we are
concentrating on securing next-generation technology while further enhancing our
world-best core technologies like hydrogen fuel cells and batteries.
Hyundai Mobis is also working hard to verify whether
the independently developed driver assistance system
(DAS) technologies and the autonomous driving solutions,
converged with these technologies, function.
For accurate verification, we completed the construction of a proving ground of
about 1.09 million ㎡ (340,000 pyeong) with test tracks exclusively designed for
autonomous driving in Seosan, Chungcheongnam-do in 2017.
The Seosan Proving Ground, which we invested as much as $31,000 USD in, is an
iconic symbol for the development of autonomous driving technologies and has a
total of 14 cutting-edge test tracks. In addition, we are also operating overseas
proving grounds for testing new technologies and new products in Sweden,
China, New Zealand, and more. We are also planning to further improve
the reliability and safety of autonomous driving technologies by increasing the
number of our autonomous driving test vehicles, M.Billy, which are currently used
for global testing in major cities around the world, such as , from 10 to 30 by the
end of 2020.
