South Korean car parts manufacturer, Hyundai Mobis, has unveiled an upgraded version of its autonomous car parking system. The system allows vehicles to analyze their parking environment and navigate to the correct parking spot with just one touch. This technology aims to provide a convenient solution for drivers who struggle with parking in tight spaces or compact parking lots.
Unlike other similar systems developed by foreign companies, Hyundai Mobis’ Parking System (MPS) does not rely on expensive lidar or radar sensors. Instead, it utilizes ultrasonic sensors and surround view monitors, which are commonly found in higher-end car models. These sensors help prevent collisions with walls or pedestrians.
The newly-developed upgraded version of MPS introduces the memory parking assist (MPA) feature, enabling drivers to teach their vehicles the optimal parking route within a designated parking area. Once the route is learned, the driver can initiate the autonomous parking process with a simple one-touch operation. The system can memorize routes of up to 100 meters (328 feet).
Additionally, the upgraded MPS includes support for remote smart parking assist (RSPA), allowing the system to control the vehicle independently when parking in parallel or perpendicular spaces. It utilizes image-based sensor fusion technology to recognize parking lines accurately.
Hyundai Mobis intends to continue improving its autonomous parking system with the introduction of automated valet parking (AVP), a fully unmanned parking system.
Overall, Hyundai Mobis’ upgraded autonomous car parking system offers an innovative and accessible solution for drivers struggling with parking in tight spaces. By utilizing cost-effective sensors and advanced technologies, the system aims to provide a safer and more efficient parking experience.
