Hyundai Motor Group has announced the development of the world’s first ML-based Smart Cruise Control (SCC-ML), a technology that incorporates the driver’s patterns into its self-driving behavior, creating a custom experience for the driver.
The technology incorporates AI in the ADAS feature. The system is planned for implementation in future Hyundai Motor Group vehicles.
“The new SCC-ML improves on the intelligence of the previous ADAS technology to dramatically improve the practicality of semi-autonomous features,” said Woongjun Jang, VP at Hyundai Motor Group. “Hyundai Motor Group will continue development efforts on innovative AI technologies to lead the industry in the field of autonomous driving.”
SCC enables an essential self-driving feature and core technology for ADAS: maintaining distance from the vehicle ahead while traveling at the speed selected by the driver. SCC-ML combines AI and SCC into a system that learns the driver’s patterns and habits on its own. Through ML, SCC autonomously drives in an identical pattern to that of the driver.
For SCC-ML to work, sensors on the car, such as the front camera and radar, constantly acquire driving information and send it to the centralized computer. The computer then extracts relevant details from the gathered information and uses AI to identify the driver’s patterns.
