Hyundai Mobis and KT Working on 5G Connected Car Development

Hyundai Mobis recently held the “Technical Cooperation Result Demonstration” together with KT and Hyundai MnSOFT. It was held at Hyundai Mobis’ Proving Ground in Seosan, Chungcheongnam where the companies demonstrated some autonomous driving situations.

Hyundai Mobis and KT formed a technical alliance for connected cars last year, and have been cooperating closely with each other. The two companies have entered into an MOU for jointly developing the ‘5G-based connected car technology’ last August.

KT built the 5G infrastructure for technology development at the Hyundai Mobis Seosan Proving Ground by the end of last year. Hyundai Mobis began to work in earnest with Hyundai MnSOFT on the development of the real-time navigation update technology and the mobile communication-based Cellular Vehicle to X (C-V2X) technology in January, and has since been endeavoring to secure related technologies.

Hyundai Mobis developed the technology for collecting traffic information through the sensors of the autonomous driving test vehicle M.Billy, and extracting core information that affects driving and transmitting it to the server. KT supported the connection between the 5G terminals installed in M.Billy and 5G communication base stations, and Hyundai MnSOFT modified and updated the map based on the received information in real-time.

The real-time navigation update technology reflects the traffic information, which preceding vehicles collect and send to the server, in the map in real-time and delivers it to following vehicles. The C-V2X technology uses the mobile communication network to share vast amounts of data with vehicles, infrastructure, other cars and pedestrians in real-time, and thus enhances the safety of autonomous driving. They are essential technologies for securing safety in the age of fully autonomous driving in which the system takes the initiative completely.

Hyundai Mobis and KT used these two technologies to demonstrate 5 scenarios, i.e. real-time precise map update, avoiding construction sections, preventing collision in case the vehicle, which is two cars ahead, makes a sudden stop, emergency situation 5G video streaming and perceiving pedestrians. These scenarios are representative cases of the connected car technology, proposed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) of the US, which match the levels of technology with global standards.
