South Korea: Hyundai Mobis-KT Join Hands to Develop Connected Vehicles in the 5G Age!

To cultivate the autonomous driving-connected future technology, Hyundai Mobis and KT Corp. are seeking to form the connected vehicle alliance and begin to cooperate with each other to ensure a high level of global competitiveness.

On January 17, Hyundai Mobis and KT announced that they launched 5G communication in the Hyundai Mobis proving ground in Seosan, Chungcheongnam-do, and began to develop connected vehicle technology by actively utilizing this network. KT built the infrastructure in the Seosan proving ground so that Hyundai Mobis can aim to gain early advantage in leveraging the 5G-based connected vehicle technology.

Hyundai Mobis is the first domestic automotive parts maker to cooperate with a common carrier for development of the connected vehicle technology.

The two companies utilized the new 5G communication network to start developing the real-time navigation update technology and the Cellular Vehicle to X (C-V2X) technology, and they are planning to secure more related technologies by the end of this year.
