On October 18, Hyundai Motor Group held a ceremony to celebrate the opening of China Future Digital R&D Center in Shanghai.
This facility marks the first overseas digital R&D facility established by Hyundai Motor Group in China. Located at The Roof, Shanghai, it covers an area of about 5,200㎡, focusing on technologies such as mobility, electrification, connectivity, and autonomous driving.
There are six departments in this center, namely, infotainment development department, autonomous driving development department, UX (User Experience) research department, Hyundai Shanghai design department, Kia Shanghai design department, and innovation development department.
Since entering the Chinese market in 2002, Hyundai Motor Group has been committed to developing products and technologies that are more suitable for the Chinese market. In 2013, Hyundai Motor Group established and started operating Hyundai Motor Kia China R&D Center in Yantai, Shandong Province. This R&D center has more than 1,000 local engineers, covering the entire vehicle development process including product planning, design, engineering design, prototypes, and vehicle testing.
In 2017, Hyundai Motor Group also set up a China Big Data Center in Guizhou Province. Based on massive vehicle data, this center continuously applies research results to the entire industry chain including R&D, production and sales of local products in China.
In the future, Shanghai, Yantai and Guizhou will form a “triangle” of Hyundai Motor Group's R&D layout in China, which may assist the automaker in accelerating the establishment of a future R&D system in local areas.
In addition, Hyundai Motor Group opened the Hyundai CRADLE Beijing, an innovation center, in 2019.

Hyundai Motor Company announced on the 12th that it plans to build an autonomous driving-related infrastructure inside the research center so that researchers can directly demonstrate various autonomous driving technologies, develop related software and systems, and quickly reflect them in future development.
First, Hyundai Motor Company started a pilot service of four roboshuttles circulating inside the research center from the 7th of this month.
The vehicle used in the pilot service is a Solati-based self-driving vehicle developed by Hyundai Motor's autonomous driving division.
The vehicle can control the vehicle after recognizing and judging the driving situation by applying the level 4 level of autonomous driving core technology, and is characterized by no emergency driver intervention except in some limited situations.
In addition, since autonomous driving data can be continuously accumulated through roboshuttle, the development of related autonomous driving technologies such as artificial intelligence software is expected to gain more momentum.
In addition, Hyundai Motor Company newly introduced a self-developed web-based autonomous vehicle control system along with the operation of the roboshuttle.
The system monitors the vehicles put into the autonomous driving service in real time and is used when normal autonomous driving is impossible due to a situation such as a temporary blockage of the road.
Lastly, as part of the self-driving demonstration test bed, Hyundai Motor plans to build a parking tower inside the Namyang Research Center to develop remote autonomous parking technology.
The parking tower is an 8-story building that can park more than 600 cars and is expected to be completed in the second half of next year.
