South Korea-based Hyundai Mobis will showcase innovations for the car of the future at CES 2019, Jan. 7 to 11, in Las Vegas. The company plans to introduce several autonomous driving, eco-friendly, intelligent lighting and infotainment and cockpit experience technologies.
Hyundai Mobis will present a number of technologies that can only be experienced with Level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles, where the driver does not have to pay attention to the road.
Attendees that visit Hyundai Mobis’ more than 4,700 ft2 exhibit (booth No. 3931) will interact with the company’s Autonomous Driving Interior Concept Car, complete with:
- Virtual touch technology – interior infotainment controls that recognize a driver’s gestures in the air, instead of touchscreen displays. For example, the driver can enjoy a movie on autonomous driving mode and use tap gestures in the air to select other movies or adjust the volume.
- Windshield display technology – a windshield that is transparent during manual driving mode, but when changed to autonomous driving mode, can be blacked out and used to view everything from trip navigation updates to movies and streaming entertainment.
- Emotional recognition technology – an AI platform categorizes a driver’s or passenger’s emotion to automatically change the interior ambiance of the vehicle and cater to various moods while sharing the emotions of drivers or passengers in nearby vehicles also outfitted with this technology—helping to avoid potential accidents among disengaged or distracted drivers or passengers.
- Hydrogen fuel cell technology – electricity generated from combining hydrogen injected with fuel and oxygen can power a vehicle that emits only pure water—a technology that is expected to grow rapidly in the future. Hyundai Mobis will showcase the latest developments at their Hydrogen Fuel Cell Zone at CES
A communication lighting concept that builds upon the supplier’s advanced driver-assist system (ADAS)-linked advanced drive beam (ADB) technology will also be presented. The concept enables autonomous vehicles to communicate with pedestrians and other vehicles on the road using intelligent lighting.
