Hyundai Mobis recently announced that it will mass-produce its mid-range front-facing radars and camera sensors to domestic commercial vehicles starting this September. According to the company, this will be the first time that such advanced sensors are to be applied to commercial vehicles like trucks produced in Korea.
These radars and camera sensors are based on the key hardware and algorithms originally developed by Hyundai Mobis. The sensors supplied are embedded with the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system with data convergence between radars and camera sensors. It calculates a safe distance from the preceding vehicle and automatically reduces car speed in a dangerous situation. It could significantly promote the safety of commercial vehicles by preventing major rear-end collisions through this high technology and accelerate the advancement of domestic commercial vehicles.
Having already secured all camera sensors as well as short-range, mid-range and long-range radar sensors earlier this year, the company is expanding its technological prowess, obtained from the advanced driver support system in the automobiles category, to advanced products specialized in commercial vehicles.
The front-facing camera sensors supplied by Hyundai Mobis to commercial vehicles have information processing abilities to stably analyze high-definition image data by applying multiple arithmetic systems. Its mid-range front-facing radars also have excellent resolving power and distance resolution to identify multiple targets at once within a short distance and the same angle with the range of 170m, which is the longest among commercial vehicles.
