Hyundai Mobis has developed an integrated communication controller which allows real-time communication of vehicle information with other vehicles or infrastructure. The company says it has succeeded in localising core connected car technology that connects vehicles, people, things and infrastructure with high-speed communication networks.

Hyundai expects that safety and information services will benefit from the availability of real-time vehicle and driver data provided by the new controller.

The Integrated Communication Controller, developed by Hyundai Mobis, connects various Electronic Control Units (ECU) mounted on the vehicle. This includes the powertrain, multimedia, airbags and brake systems, through wired communication to collect and analyse various kinds of vehicle operation data in real time. The controller can process large amounts of data, including the data from various sensors like radars, lidars and cameras, and autonomous driving-related data.

It also communicates this information with the outside through full-time wireless network connectivity.

Hyundai Mobis says the new controller can implement various connected car services, such as remote vehicle control and automatic update of the software of various systems, and functions like eCall which automatically transmits accident information in case of an emergency.

Detailed vehicle data, including the status of the powertrain of the vehicle, fuel efficiency and driving habits, can be used not only to diagnose failures in real time, but also implement an open service ecosystem, such as integrated parking reservation, driving habit-linked insurance, smart home connection solutions and AI support.
