To realize its consummate visions of the smart factory, Hyundai Motor Group has established Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICs).
Singapore is an innovation mecca of Southeast Asia and a home to some of the world’s leading global companies, universities, and research institutes. Taking advantage of this local talent pool, the Group is developing an open innovation ecosystem within the HMGICs, one that will develop and validate new business models and technology across the value chain of future mobility, including R&D, business, and manufacture.
In particular, HMGICs is expected to develop, and serve as a testbed for, the Group’s manufacturing platforms in Industry 4.0. The intelligent manufacturing platform, incorporating futuristic technologies in AI, robotics, and IoT, will serve as a milestone for the consummate smart factory in the Group’s ultimate vision. Hyundai Motor Group is planning to apply the intelligent platform to various processes with small EV production and BTO manufacture systems being some of its early goals by validating effectiveness.
The recently developed automated inspection protocol technology uses 6 robot arms to inspect the finished vehicle’s five ADAS systems (FCA – Forward Collision Assist; LKA – Lane Keeping Assist; BCA – Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist; SCC – Smart Cruise Control; SVM – Surround View Monitor) in approximately 85 seconds. Previously, these systems had to be inspected separately, making it not only more time-consuming but also more difficult to test their collaborative functions. The new technology is far more reliable and productive in ensuring quality.
