Hyundai Mobis has announced the successful development of its latest parking technology, the ‘MPS 1.0P (Premium)’, an enhanced version of the Mobis Parking System (MPS) first introduced in 2021.
Why It Matters
The rise of advanced parking technology is a key indicator of the approaching age of autonomous parking. As urban driver assistance systems (ADAS) and video-based sensors merge, Hyundai Mobis solidifies its dominant position in the high-performance parking control arena.
- A significant feature is the Memory Parking Assist (MPA), which enables vehicles to learn a parking routine and autonomously park with a single driver touch in a familiar space.
- Central to this technology is the integration of video-based sensors, utilizing ultrasonic sensors and Surround View Monitor (SVM) cameras. The application of advanced techniques sourced from robotics has allowed up to a 100m storage distance.
- Predictions show the technology will be popular in regions like Europe and China where specific parking areas or private garages are prevalent.
- Hyundai Mobis’ system is developed without pricey radar or lidar sensors. Instead, it uses only ultrasonic and SVM cameras, offering both technological and cost benefits.
- Additionally, the ‘Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)’ feature has been enhanced. The new RSPA can recognize parking lines and autonomously park even without vehicles nearby, as showcased in models like Kia’s SUV EV9, G90, GV60, and IONIQ 6.
Hyundai Mobis continues to push the envelope with its innovative parking solutions, reinforcing its position as a frontrunner in autonomous driving and parking technologies. The company’s commitment to research and development, evidenced by initiatives like the ‘e-Corner System’ and advances in autonomous parking, positions it to be a key player in future mobility trends. With a presentation scheduled at the prestigious ‘AutoSens Conference’ in Brussels, Hyundai Mobis sets the stage to showcase its technological prowess to the global industry.
