Hyundai Mobis, the auto parts affiliate of Hyundai Motor Group, showcased diverse innovative technologies to be applied to cars in the future during the 2020 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.
The company’s “M Vision S” initiative, which employs self-developed key technologies, has gone through drastic upgrades from previous years, catching the attention of global observers.
The technologies include autonomous vehicle connectivity, electro motion and infotainment, but the most eye catching was the state-of-the-art headlight technology that helps to alert other drivers and pedestrians.
Autonomous vehicles in the future will not only be able to recognize their surroundings, but will be driverless, so will need devices that can communicate with other vehicles. The industry believes headlight technology will be a means to do so.
Headlights are a safety component that illuminate the surface of the vehicle and road when driving during the night and have evolved as a tool to communicate with other vehicles and its surroundings.
Hyundai Mobis has been implementing new innovative lighting concepts for autonomous vehicles and has shown its competitiveness in this sector. The company has been well situated as a leader for change and acknowledged as a trend setter in the global auto market.
In recent years, Hyundai Mobis has showcased several of the world’s first new lighting technologies that have been lauded globally.
The 3D rear lamp, which was a final candidate for the U.S. PACE AWARD, is one key technology from Hyundai Mobis.
The technology brings a more luxurious and lively feel, compared to other products on the market.
Hyundai Mobis was not only able to differentiate its design in the rear lamp sector, but also able to successfully develop smart head lamps to better meet the autonomous vehicle era.
It is imperative for futuristic cars to receive information of signs and road conditions in real-time at night.
Hyundai Mobis successfully implemented radar sensors, navigation information steering angle sensors to swiftly collect additional roadside information.
The reason the company was able to surpass Europe and Japanese companies is that it was able to secure key technologies not only in the lamp sector but in other key components becoming a global comprehensive auto component supplier, the company said.
