Auto parts manufacturer Hyundai Mobis has developed a 5G communication module for use within the autonomous and connected vehicle sector of the automotive industry.
The company’s 5G communication module is based on 5G mobile connectivity and has been designed to deliver ultra-high-speed connections, ultra-low latency and hyperconnectivity –all necessary requirements to enable the advancement of autonomous driving and other connected vehicle systems that utilize large-volume data processing and real-time connections.
The module consists of a communication chip, memory, an RF circuit and GPS. Hyundai Mobis seeks to use its latest solution within the telematics service for 5G connected vehicles. By using a mobile communications network to share vehicle information, various connected features can be enabled including remote vehicle control, over-the-air updates and real-time traffic data sharing.
The company seeks to reach an international audience with an integrated solution based on the V2X communication technology and the new 5G communication technology.
Still in the early stages of development, Hyundai Mobis’s solution features an array of transportation applications for enhanced safety and convenience for drivers. These include sensor-data sharing between vehicles, automatic deceleration in school zones and vehicle control in emergency situations.
“We will strive to develop differentiated mobility technology that merges the integrated 5G V2X technology with the existing autonomous vehicle sensors and our IVI technology, which gives us a competitive advantage over rivals,” said Joon-bae Choi, head of the connectivity and sound sector, Hyundai Mobis.
