South Korean-based mobility and auto parts producer Hyundai Mobis released a statement recently. The company said it had developed a 5G-supported communication module for cars. This 5G module is the key to connected car systems and autonomous driving.
Hyundai Mobis To Add 5G Module To Telematics Services
The company’s report stated that this new 5G module would combine memory and communication functions. It will also feature other additions to boost functionality.
These features include a GPS based on hyper connectivity, ultra-low latency, and high-speed technology. In addition, it will have a radio frequency circuit.
Hyundai Mobis will add this communication module to its vehicle telematics services. The telematics service connects a vehicle to an outside control center.
Through this connection, the driver receives infotainment and safety information services. eCall service, real-time traffic info, and OTA update are examples of such services.
Furthermore, Mobis stated that over 52 million vehicles will use the 5G telematics feature by 2028. This will be higher than the number of cars that used this module in 2021, 2 million cars.
In addition, the Korean company noted that this latest module would function in a different part of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System). It would also pair with camera sensors, LiDAR, and radars.
Initially, Hyundai Mobis will develop an integrated solution targeting the international market. The company would use its preexisting V2X (vehicle-to-everything) technology and the 5G communication module.
Benefits Of V2X And 5G Communication Module Integration
Meanwhile, V2X is a tool that transmits info from an automobile to other entities. These entities are elements that may affect the vehicle. The V2X is another fundamental technology for the linked car system.
However, this technology needs an extremely high-speed transmission network to function properly. The V2X application and embedded 5G interaction module had several uses.
Companies can use them in technologies such as vehicle control during an emergency. Also, companies can use them for automatic speed control for cars close to school zones.
Additionally, they have great potential in collision avoidance systems. This will allow cars to avoid obstacles on the way.
However, all these techs are still in their early stages of development. The company still has a long way to go to enhance the capability of scu technologies.
Meanwhile, the Mobis’ 5G module comes after the company’s latest shares report. Last month, the Hyundai Motor Group announced it would exchange shares with KT, a telecom firm in South Korea.
The shares exchanged are over 750 billion won ($520 million). The company’s decision aimed at strengthening its partnership in the mobility industry.
As part of the deal, Hyundai Motor Group said it would acquire 7.7% of the treasury stock of KT company. Similarly, KT will buy 1.46% of Hyundai Mobis’ shares. The telecom firm will also acquire 1.04% of the treasury stock of Hyundai Motor Group.
