LAS VEGAS — Instead of spinning off holdings or specializing in one field or another, Hyundai Mobis intends to capitalize on the diversity of its product lines in the next few years.
The South Korean supplier is working on two new safety systems it expects to bring to market in four to six years, both developed by uniting different pieces of the company's deep catalog of technologies.
The first will come from vehicle lighting know-how. Hyundai Mobis, ranked No. 7 on last year's Automotive News Top Suppliers list, with 2017 revenues of $25 billion, is developing an intelligent lighting system that combines advanced lamp controls with camera image processing, according to Mirco Goetz, director of the company's Lamp Engineering Design Group in Seoul.
Cameras and sensors will combine with adaptive beam lamps to monitor and predict where road objects are coming, and determine how they should be lit, Goetz said while discussing technology trends during last month's CES electronics show here.
