Hyundai Mobis Develops Advanced Autonomous Parking Technology

Hyundai Mobis, a leading automotive supplier, has made significant progress in the development of advanced parking technology. The company recently announced the launch of the ‘MPS 1.0P (Premium)’, an improved version of its next-generation parking control system. This new system, equipped with the innovative ‘Memory Parking Assist (MPA)’, offers a seamless autonomous parking experience for drivers.

The MPA technology allows vehicles to learn and remember the parking process in a specific path. With just a single touch, the driver can initiate autonomous parking in the learned parking space. This technology combines ultrasonic sensors and Surround View Monitor (SVM) cameras to measure the vehicle’s location and create maps. By implementing robotics-inspired techniques, the system can support parking distances of up to 100 meters.

The Memory Parking Assist technology is expected to be particularly popular in regions like Europe and China, where designated parking areas or private garages are common. It eliminates parking stress as the vehicle can be remotely parked in the same location based on the previously learned driving path.

Notably, Hyundai Mobis’ next-generation parking control system stands out for its use of ultrasonic sensors and SVM cameras instead of expensive radar or lidar sensors. This not only ensures technological excellence but also reduces costs, making it more affordable for widespread adoption in regular vehicles.

In addition to the MPA technology, Hyundai Mobis has also upgraded its ‘Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)’ system. The improved RSPA 2 version now includes a parking line recognition feature, enabling autonomous parking even in empty parking spaces without surrounding vehicles. This technology has already been implemented in Kia’s electric vehicle models, including the SUV EV9, G90, GV60, and IONIQ 6.

Hyundai Mobis will showcase these developments at the prestigious ‘AutoSens Conference’ in Brussels, under the theme of “The Future of Vehicle Parking Innovation.” The company aims to continue its research and development efforts towards fully unmanned autonomous parking and plans to unveil other urban autonomous driving innovations, such as crab driving and zero-turn demonstrations, with their ‘e-Corner System’.

Overall, Hyundai Mobis is at the forefront of advanced parking technology, offering solutions that enhance the autonomous driving experience while reducing costs. Their innovations have the potential to revolutionize the way we park our vehicles and pave the way for a future of safer and more efficient mobility.

– Ultrasonic sensors: Sensors that use sound waves to measure distances and detect objects.
– Surround View Monitor (SVM) cameras: Cameras that provide a 360-degree view around the vehicle, helping drivers navigate and park more easily.
