Hyundai Mobis has announced mass-production of its mid-range front-facing radars and camera sensors to domestic commercial vehicles starting this September. This will be the first time that such advanced safety sensors are to be applied to commercial vehicles like trucks produced in Korea. Hyundai Mobis have developed the key hardware and algorithms originally for these radars and camera sensors.
These sensors are embedded with the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system with data convergence between radars and camera sensors. The function is to calculate a safe distance from the preceding vehicle and automatically reducing the car speed in a dangerous situation. Hyundai Mobis could significantly promote the safety of commercial vehicles by preventing major rear-end collisions through this high technology and accelerate the advancement of domestic commercial vehicles.
Hyundai has already secured all camera sensors as well as short-range, mid-range and long-range radar sensors at the starting of this year. The company is now expanding its technological elements, obtained from the advanced driver support system in the automobiles category, and to advanced products specialized in commercial vehicles.
Thee front-facing camera sensors will have information processing abilities to stably analyze high-definition image data by applying multiple arithmetic system. The mid-range front-facing radars also have excellent resolving power and distance resolution to identify multiple targets at once within a short distance and the same angle with the range of 170m, which is the longest among commercial vehicles.
